Lyssé Tummy Control Leggings
Expensive but SO worth it
These are really slimming, very comfortable and way better than any other leggings I have bought. I used to be a 16 and bought several of these in L. I am now 14 and the L are still fine, but I've bought new ones in M and find them very comfortable. There are two aspects that I find put them above most other leggings I have tried.
Firstly, the material is a good thickness - I don't like leggings where you can see the skin through and these are too robust for that (which also helps with the slimming effect). Once on though they are very very comfortable - they are not restrictive at all.
The second aspect is that they stay up - I am not constantly feeling the need to hoike them up around the waist as I have to with most other leggings I have.
I just wish they came in brown (please? A lovely deep brown.)

go up a size
hi there i ordered these leggings and bought a size medium as i am between a 12-14. I found them really hard to get on, i had to really pull them over my hips.. once on they are comfy but too tight for me. My stomach is my main problem, this is the first time i have ever found something to be harder to get past my hips than my belly... anyway i have returned them and will try the large size. i was gutted as i was really looking forward to wearing them. The material does seem good and in the right size i think they will be great, but until them i can only award 3 stars based on the sizing issue.

Superb and slimming
Great leggings which dont fall down! Expensive but so worth the money and last! I bought a pair of grey ones last year and just bought a black pair!

A great buy
The only leggings not to go see through or bag too much.

I'll never buy another type legging. They are thick and the tummy bit is awesome! They are long on me, but whatever. I love them!

Second skin, but beware not to buy too big
I'm suffering from fat tummy but thin legs, so the high percentage of elastane around the stomach area was welcome as well as the high waist which prevented roll-down. Lets not kid ourselves, they do not make you thinner looking!
I found the legs were rippling around the knees a bit as I ordered a large size because of past reviews and a fear I wouldn't be able to get them on. However the large is generous and my tummy is a 16, but my legs a 12, so they were loose around the knees.
The grip is not that tight and I wore these to a concert and forgot I was wearing them they were that comfortable. However the knees were a little loose, but thats my fault for being a silly shape at the moment.
Don't expect miracles - these are just leggings with a high waist and extra tightness around the midriff. The material could be thicker to make one feel warmer and more 'dressed', but then they'd be jeggings, whatever the dickens they are!

Best leggings I've found
I bought the capri version of these in the summer and they have become my most worn item so I've invested in the ankle length ones for the winter. They really do help to hold everything in whilst remaining very comfortable. Great with knee high lace up flat boots and a chunky jumper. True to size and fantastic quality

They boost your confidence!
When I opened the packet, I was reminded of the "Playtex girdle" ads they used to have on TV when I was a wee girl, long before I fell victim to flab.
These leggings really do hold your tummy in, without being uncomfortably tight, and they don't fall down either. They are surprisingly flattering, even for the fuller figure, and they look great with just about anything: long T-shirts, shirts, tunics, sweater dresses; boots, leg warmers, trainers. They've gone some way to restoring my confidence after I'd gained a huge amount of weight through illness. I thought I was being extavagant when I ordered them, but they are worth it. They're obviously better quality than the standard leggings you can throw away after you'ver worn them a few times. I've washed them twice (cold wash) and they hold their shape and elasticity. The service was efficient and they arrived promptly. I may have to order another pair!
