    Okay, so I went and tried some dresses on today. It was my first time and I was dreading not liking anything on myself. But I did actually like quite a few of the dresses. Anyway, when I was trying them on she had me wearing a petticoat and this bra thing, and let me tell you I was sweating!! For those of you that have already gotten married and those of you that have bought your dress, what are you wearing underneath?? I really can't see myself wearing that enormous petticoat in 90 degree weather in mexico, I'm gonna melt!!

      I think I am going to have them sew in cups when I have my dress altered. And that's all I'd wear (on top anyway!). I'm about a C cup - that will be enough, won't it?

        Wear as little as possible.

        Yes, have the bra cups sewn in.

        I'm not sure I would say forgo the most wonderful dress in the world because you don't want to wear a petticoat, but I wouldn't have been able to handle it. Especially when we were dancing. Whew - it was hot when those salsa teachers had us going!

          Yes I was pretty darn hot, and my dress wasn't even that poofy! I only wore some spanx, no bra...but the material was thick enough that it was fine and held me in tight...lol

            yeah, when she had me getting all dresses up today I asked her if it was really necessary to wear all that stuff and she said the dress would look better, but almost all the dresses I tried on had so many layers under them already, it was just too much, I know I'll hate it!!

            I've had cups sewn in in bm dresses before and it was great!! Nothing to worry about.

            okay this is a dumb question, but what are spanx?? I know I've heard girls mention them before, but was never sure. is it like suction pants or something?

              My dress maker is also going to sew the cups in the dress but since I'm an A cup I think I'll need some "help" there hehehehe

                  I got married in Arizona in October, but it was still in the high 80's/low 90's. I actually wore a hoopskirt as my first layer, and it was wonderful! Hoopskirts keep all those layers of tulle and crinoline away from your legs, and lets air in. I didn't feel hot at all. It was also easier for dancing - DH and I do ballroom dancing, and I wouldn't have been able to move as well if I had just worn a petticoat. (I actually did wear a petticoat over the hoopskirt, b/c my dress was very full, but it worked well and looked great.)

                  There are online sites where you can buy hoopskirts; I'll try to find the name of where I bought mine. It was adjustable, which worked well, and they also have different sizes (ie, 1 hoop, 2 hoops, 3 hoops, etc) depending on how wide you need it to be. I highly recommend using a hoopskirt!

                  Oh, and as for the bra, I definitely needed one, and I wasn't able to sew cups into my dress (wouldn't have worked), so I just bought a strapless "merrywidow" type bra from Victoria's Secret. I loved it, and it also wasn't hot. Quite comfortable, actually.

                    Or, you could use these:

                    Victoria's Secret - Invisible shaping bra

                    I have heard some brides love them, but I have never personally tried it!

                      I am the same as everyone else...I am getting the bra cups sewn in. However, I refused to try on the petticoat under the dress...I did not want one with my dress no matter what. They seems shocked, but after I explained I will be on a beach, they understood. If you don't want that...tell them you don't need one, that way you can see what the dress will actually look like.
