Ladies, and gentlemen (if you can answer this). I tried to wear a pair of leggings today, and it became abundantly clear that I have saggy skin around my knees. Does anyone know of a pantliner that will help control what needs to be controlled, without being too tight in the tummy area. (Remember, I have that hernia that objects to being pressed upon.

If it helps, I'm currently in a womens 28-30 size pants.

Is the problem from the knees up? Or from the waist to the knees? If it's the lower part of your legs, maybe compression knee highs or thigh highs. If it's the upper part of your leg, capris?

The problem is above the knee. I will never find compression thigh highs that will fit my still-fat legs.

I like maidenform and bali brands for shapewear. Compression tights could also work. Looking for options without "control top" might help.

Are you getting the hernia repaired?

The surgeon told me to wait to get the hernia fixed until I lose another 100 lbs. UGH!! I guess they want to do the panniculectomy and the hernia repair at the same time?

That seems like a long time to live with a hernia.

Check out Slimpressions and Spanx websites. They have supportive undergarments for whatever issues you have. You might have to get a slightly larger size so that it wont be as tight.
