Any good slimming shirts?

I'd like to buy a shirt/take that will slim my tummy down and at the same time help me keep posture. o: I'd be using it to lose weight too lol.
Do you guys know of any god tummy tuckers for cosplay? (:

Just go exercise and in no time you'll lose that tummy weight. I did a workout with one of my friends. And in a week she had the body she wanted!

Wow your friend is lucky lol. For most people it's hard to lose weight that fast. An average person loses 1-2 pounds a week with exercise and eating healthy. Although some don't have that luck, especially people like me with uber slow metabolism lol.

Could always buy a compression shirt from an athletic store.

I am on the workout train for this one. >_> I mean... why not just lose the extra mass instead of rearranging it?

Because the two things don't have to be mutually exclusive, and rearranging it is much easier, faster, and potentially motivational. Why throw away a useful tool?

It is the easier part of it that makes it not as beneficial. Plus once you remove it, the lie is revealed.

I am steadily losing weight (eating right and exercise are the best things for you_ but while this is happening, I still like that extra flattening aspect of a corset or cincher until I get to my desired measurements.

No shame in a little assistance. Calm down everyone.

Thank you everyone, I'm sorry I wasn't more clear. I am losing the weight currently, my friend and I are on a group workout. I just thought buying a shirt that shows me my desired body would motivate me more to achieve it.
I didn't mean to offend anyone who thought I would lie about my body.

It is all good, I was not offended when I made my post I was just stating my opinion I hope I did not offend you with my posts.

Keeping an ideal around sounds good on paper... but is not good in reality. I have found that it can stir up just as much self-loathing as it can motivation, personal experience. Just like having small cloths does not really give people much motivation. They are just a constant reminder of how you are not at your goal.

A better method is the before and after photo method. Take a photo of yourself now, and store it away. Then in 6 months take another one and compare the two. Seeing the changes that way is far more encouraging in my opinion than... well like I said lying.

I do this and it really does help. Even after losing five pounds I could already see a difference in the photos.
