I have a stomach that sticks out and i get made fun of cause of that and, every girl in my school has a perfect bod but i dont. I dont have anyone to talk to bout this cause my mom just jokes around way to much and my sister is no exception eithier. Also i am 13 and weigh like 96 pounds but idk what to do about my stomach i suck it in everyday but it doesnt work and every guy goes look at how fat she is and stuff like that is this because i am not on a school sports team or what ??????
~ Thanks ~

Shapewear reminds me of a corset... like back in victorian times, when they laced their corset so tight that some people fainted. I'm reading a book from victorian times, and they talk about corsets, and one slightly plump girl made her waist 17 inches with a corset! corsets and shapewear scare me

Ok, two questions:
1. I've had my period for over two years, and it's getting MORE irregular. My last period was in July and I'm having my next today (first day) and I had nothing in August, and this happens differently each month.
2. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be on my period on the first day of school, which makes me feel all icky and not myself, any tips on how to feel better? THX!

I've had dark circles under my eyes since I was eight. I'm now fourteen and they are really starting to annoy me. I pretty much get 6-8 hours of sleep a night. Is this a problem I should get checked out? Hannah H.

I've been trying to lose weight, and I've lost 6 pounds! But, I don't feel like I've lost 6 pounds. Is it possible to have a body that will really NEVER be able to be tiny? Because I'm not HEAVY and I'm not even OVERWEIGHT its just that I get teased about my weight because I'm not the super-skinny one in class. And in my family everyone is curvier and heavier. Will this mean I'm doomed to never be super thin?

They sound like those thingies women would wear under their dresses in the past...corsets?
by §♥greyson_chance♥§ on 8/25/2012 5:57:14 PM
I've never even heard of Spanx before. =\ I need to get out of the house more often.
But I HAVE heard of corsets, which I've just recently studied, and it seems like spanx is similar. The corset was worn under Victorian woman's clothes, all the way to the civil war, and was tightened to the point that is crushed organs or jumbled them together. More then 8/10 woman had serious health problems because of it, and 1/20 of them had a chance of dying after extended use.

I only wear spanks when my shorts are too short or I'm on my period. When I'm on my period, it helps ensure no leaking, especially at school. I have a pair that is a little big, so it's not super tight. Also, I buy boy short underwear and wear it like spanks, just not soo tight. The thing is, it's not for my shape, it's for comfort of not flashing or leaking. To avoid problems like this, just be smart about it. Hope this can help someone!
by jewels101 on 8/25/2012 12:46:53 PM
i hate spandex. their not uncomfortable or anything, trust me, but they look HORRIBLE on me cuz im not that skinny. i have to wear them for vball, its not my choice. i wish vball didnt require spanx...
by lilmissamazing on 8/25/2012 12:10:47 PM
I wear spanx everyday, but less for the body slimming purposes than for the fact that it makes me feel comfortable. I like shorts and skirts and I wear shorts for sport practices all the time. I like how the spanx cover and don't show anything if I cross my legs or stretch.

Weird thing is, a girl was trying to promote this today in gym. She said it makes you feel better. I said I don't have any and don't plan on using it anytime soon. Phew. I'm so glad I wasn't motivated to use it.
by Gabriella123 on 8/23/2012 7:50:07 PM
It sounds like a horrible trend. It sounds like it hurts!!!
by Milkdog64 on 8/23/2012 5:50:47 PM
I think everyone should love who they are! I know that it may be hard for some people but the least that you can do is try. I think having an unhealthy image of yourself is not, healthy! If you don't agree with my opinion I'm sorry
by gen_gen11 on 8/23/2012 5:46:25 PM
ouch. when girls turn to things like this, i always think, is it worth it to look like that on the outside, if it is killing everything inside?
by N3rdyRand0mn3ss on 8/23/2012 7:37:11 AM
OMG one time for volleyball since we have to wear spandex, i have a pair of underwear that looked like my spandex! So i accidentaly wore my underwear as shorts! No boys saw it though! Whew
by YayaYuiki on 8/22/2012 6:52:28 PM
I think this scary trend is really bad.
by otter77 on 8/22/2012 3:32:42 PM
Im not going to lie, when i was 13 I thought i needed shape wear, but now im much older and super fine with how my body is, i work out a lot and try my best to make myself heathly and not to have to worry about that stuff.

i wear spandex for sports and sometimes under shorts if theyre a bit see through but not part of an everyday outfit
by myipodrox16 on 8/21/2012 4:53:14 PM
That hint was a bit obvious, if you ask me.
by peppercyndaquil13 on 8/21/2012 4:47:52 PM
In one issue of Girlslife that has spring dresses for school dances. They had tips and stuff and one of them was... psst shapewear isn't scary and that all celebrities use it no matter what their size!!!
by 15hayhay on 8/21/2012 2:28:47 PM
i wear spandex for volleyball but thats all.I'm happy with who I am.

I'm skinny, I always feel the need to gain weight all the time, people say I'm lucky, my 2 best friends say I'm the lucky one, but the thing is, it's rare to see someone who's skinny just like me, I only got 1 friend who's skinny like me, the rest are healthy and nothing BUT healthy! I feel jealous about that, but hey, I'm a Scorpio, they're supposed to feel jealous sometimes or all the time right?
by Susmita24 on 8/21/2012 1:18:41 PM
That's horrible. :\ But the weird thing is is that I'm wearing volleyball spandex right now...They're really comfortable...
by fungirl123 on 8/21/2012 1:17:12 PM
This is so stupid. In one of the magazines GL had they said to wear shape wear and to not be afraid of it. Now they're saying it's bad? This is so hypocritical. No, I don't remember the exact issue but it was one with either a prom or homecoming section.
by joyful1 on 8/21/2012 1:16:34 PM
When u think about it, being skinny and no curves isn't all tht beautiful. It look nice when u keep yourself healthy and u just have no curves, but forcing yourself to be super skinny is NOT beautiful! Curves can be beautiful! I have curves, but I'm still healthy, and i feel beautiful. I know I'm not like the hottest person to ever walk the earth, but i feel beautiful! Thts what matters!
by ColosalMascara on 8/21/2012 12:19:18 PM
I don't think this is exactly true...Yes, I'm sure some shapewear does cause damage, but I was a gymnast and a dancer and we wore spanx to practice. Also my friends wear spanx underneath skirts that are on the shorter side. I don't think I don't think spanx are painful unless you got a lot of curve and you get a size too small...but anyways, the message here is good, so be proud of who you are!
by summergirl21 on 8/21/2012 10:44:12 AM
wow, thats messed up!!!! i never know that people besides olympic athletes wore spandx and that they only wore spandx for the games!!!
by Prim on 8/21/2012 10:34:20 AM
I think you should just be proud of who you are. If you don't like it, change it!
