I went from sizes 18 to 16, to 14 & now I’m size 12. In jeans, slacks & skirts ( so far dresses: haven’t purchased in size 12. I have a “bone waist cinched, & belt that goes around your waist but being size 12, dressed up I don’t need to “tighten” up besides I have 2 girdles: 1 is a panty girdle the other is an open bottom girdle. I was going to ask; do I really & necessary to wear a waist cincher, especially don’t have a big belly but is flat? Love to hear from size 10 & 12 ladies: Re your opinion. Robin Jennifer.
