What to wear under there?

Hello ladies The picture photo 3374284-1


Hello ladies,


The picture above is the dress I'm wearing for the big day. Instead of the red sash, I'm wearing the truffle sash. When I got the dress I also bought a slip for underneath. Unfortunately, I don't want to wear it because it will be way too hot. The dress is very heavy (all lace and beads). Also, the slip has poofy layers. So, what should I wear instead? Or should I not wear a slip? Any suggestions will help. I'm going to my first fitting next month.


TIA!

Well, if the slip has poofy layers, it's probably so that the dress stays the correct shape on the bottom. If you're willing to sacrifice the shape of your dress on the bottom, I would say you could probably dispense with it, or maybe your seamstress could add some crinoline to your actual dress so you wouldn't have to wear the slip. I would take it to your fitting and let her know your dilemma, and just ask her what she thinks. I'm sure she has hundreds of dresses under her belt, and will know what to do:) Good luck!

Great advice littlebit! It would definitely be a good idea to ask the lady (or man) that does the fitting and they should have pretty good knowledge of what would be best!

I was thinking of wearing shorts or spanx or something along those lines. Would that work?

I've never worn spanx before. I could imagine spandex shorts wouldn't be too bad if your dress wouldn't show them (I can't really tell from the picture of it)


Bump for any other thoughts?

Honestly, for my wedding, I wore some super comfy cotton panties, and had the lady altering my dress make it so I wouldn't have to wear a bra. Lol! I had the dress itself, which was a heavy satin fabric, and a petticoat.. There was no way to notice what was going on under there, so I didn't sweat it (more than I had to ;) ).

I hope that helps! Your dress is beautiful, btw! :D

That's a cool idea Aggie. Honestly, I'm too big in the top to go without a bra. Also, I'm having straps added to my dress so there's no risk of a wardrobe malfunction. Another idea I had was going with a different slip and having the seamstress take a layer out of the dress. I guess I will have to wait until my first fitting and figure out my seamstress' skillset. I don't need all my accessories for my first fitting, do I? Any other suggestions are welcome. Thank you ladies!

I didn't have my accessories for my first fitting last weekend. Only because I don't have my necklace yet which is my main piece. If you have things though, it never hurts to bring them. BUT DEFINITELY bring your shoes! Because that's what they will be using to figure out the hem

:) honestly, I had my dress altered specifically because of my chest (38DD) and that my dress came too low in the back for me to wear a specific bra (because of an allergy, I can only do mostly cotton, and couldn't find Colton lingerie that went low enough). My dress alterations lady was really knowledgable on how to solve my problems, so maybe yours will have some suggestions we haven't even thought of! :) I had some accessories we ended up vetoing because of the cut of my dress, though she offered to sew a couple things in so I didn't have to deal with them separately.

Oh wow, I can't believe there are so many options! I do have my shoes, so no worries there. I'm hoping I have a very knowledgeable seamstress. Ahhh, I'm nervous and excited! Thank you ladies for all the help. Any other suggestions are welcome!

If you're worried about being hot try a hoop skirt. I am using one and it holds all the layers away from your legs so it's not so hot. And you can use a small, one hoop one too so it won't be huge or anything. Just a thought
