Home-made "tummy binder"

Hi all,

I'm very excited by my latest "invention" and thought I'd share

I've been trying to find a comfortable tummy binder with little success. I tried the surgical post-op tummy binder, but it was too bulky to fit comfortably under clothes. I tried the "body-shaper" style underwear, but it were hot and uncomfortable.

Then it suddenly occurred to me today that I can cut off the legs and crotch of old bike shorts and wear the remaining "band" over my tummy. Voila!! Just the perfect amount of support! I wear it over my normal underwear and under my normal pants. Very very comfy! I even tried coughing while wearing this and it was much less painful.

I'm sure it would work with old tights or maybe even an old runny pair of control top panty hose
