Me?  I'm going for major architecture under there!  A long-line bra, Spanx, and a crinoline with a sucker inner waist.  The crinoline also helps by making it look like what poofs out below the waistline is just the crinoline, not me.  ;-)

I think I want a bustier/corset. I've never had one, and think they are sexay, and it's dual purpose - won't have to worry about changing ;)

I'm doing a long-line bra and spanx-- the ones that go from your knees to right under your (normal) bra line...  But now I'm curious about this crinoline that sucks you in.. where did you ladies find that?!

My dress had some boning on the bodice and fit me really well so I ended up not having to wear anything under it - it smoothed all the bumps down nicely on its own!!

I guess it all depends on the type of dress material but it's either a long-line bra or a corset.  I have spanx and I just do not like how the top part rolls down.

I have it picked out, just need to order it:


This longline bra


And not sure what else. I'm likely just wearing a flowy empire dress so not much would be needed below the waist...


But I love that bra simply because it comes in a 48FF which is my size, though the band size is one size bigger. The reviews I've seen on it reccommend ordering one band size up. :)

afowler8, my sucker-inner crinoline is a David's Bridal Style 603.  They describe it as having a "Power Net Waist."  I got mine used from another bride via eBay.

I actually spent a lot of money on a new strapless bar. And then when I went in to the alteration place they told me that I would probablly look better in my dress without a bra on... so I tried it. And it did look better! I nexer thought I could go bra-less. But the way my dress is cut and made it just works!


Im also just wearing cute panties.

My friend said she had a slimmer/shaper thingy that made her go down two dress sizes. Do any of you guys know what that thing is called?? She gained more weight and it couldn't fit her anymore so she got rid of it and can't remember the name of it. How sad. :(

I wore spanx "capri" type pantyhose and THAT's it! No bra or shaper or anything else. The pantyhose had a bit of a shaper to it though.

I've been looking at different types of stomach sucker inner things...do spanx really work and are they comfortable? the last thing I want is to be uncomfortable for 12 hours...

I wear my "spanx" under all of my dresses, even under some of my dress pants to smooth everything out. I don't have the actual spanx brand, mine were from Lane Bryant. They seem to be a little smoother & silkier than spanx. I don't think they are uncomfortable at all!


I have tried the Assets (Spanx lower price brand) from Target, and I got the largest size they had and there was no way I could even get those things on!! (I'm a size 22/24 from LB). I have yet to try the actual Spanx brand from LB since I have 3 pairs of the LB version!


Under my dress I will be wearing a cute pair of lavendar & lace panties, and my long line strapless bra from Davids, and my "spanx"!

I wore David's sucky-inny crinny (as I call it) and nothing else. My dress fit me so well it held everything else where it was supposed to be.
