Yes! I have several lyrca undergarments in the drawer right now!
I am not old. I am not fat. I am not obsessed (at least about my shape). I weigh about 115-120 when I’m not pregnant, and I’m 5’2" and 34 years old.
After the birth of my first child, I found that the pleasant little “pooch” on my belly had changed for the bigger. In my more self-critical moments, I thought it looked like I had a fanny pack on front-wise, even when I was naked. Really, I don’t look like that, but I am a woman conditioned by my times, sometimes I can’t help it.
So I got a couple of pairs of “girdle undies.” They compress and shape, and I love them. I don’t wear them all the time, but I do wear them.
I also have a shaper teddy with boning that I wear post-partum. Partly because I look skinnier faster and partly because support for those poor, abused abdominals is very good for them while they are recovering.
It ain’t false advertising, and it ain’t repression. I feel prettier in slinky outfits when I have a little extra support, and so it’s great! What matters is how I feel about how I look.
I wear WonderBras too. Is that bad? I love cleavage and might not have a lot otherwise.
