undergarment question

Recommended Posts

Sorry I guess I wasn't too clear but I am talking about the crinoline slip underneath - or the hoop skirt - or whatever I need - do you think I can just buy one on ebay or should I wait and try one on w/ my dress?

I'm a little slow today- sorry!!! I'd for sure try that on with my dress so that you know the length is correct.

As for the whole spank thing, I'm not gonna bother sweating like mad. The way I see it, I will be in a bikini all week in front of my guests, without the help of spank.

My bridal salon had it there and I ended up buying it from them. I know I will be sweating like crazy, but I will take it off once the ceremony is over.

the seamstress usually has different size cups for you to choose from.


As for the crinoline slip, I bought one for my dress off of ebay, but the day of the wedding it was so hot that I ended up not wearing it, my dress had some crinoline underneath, so it still had a little pouf to it.

I would definetly try it on with your dress because mine was too long and had to be hemmed. Also you want to make sure it poufs the dress out enough.

I got my crinoline along with my TTD dress that I bought off eBay (I got it all for less than $100). I am taking the crinoline to the dry cleaners today b/c it is all bunched up and wrinkled from being in the storage bag -- but it is goinbg to be perfect with my wedding dress and TTD dress. The bra -- I am going to try on the Flattering Me line this week at a local salon b/c I need a longline w/ my dress that you won't be able to see the boning with. I wish I could go w/o, but I think it just really pulls everything together with my dress and the overall look I want to achieve. The longlines that I have seem to have boning that you can kind of see through the dress. Flattering Me is supposed to be the bomb, so we shall see... If not, then I think it's a trip to VS to see what type of bridal longlines they might have that work.

Thats a darn good point! I agree, I think I'll forget about the spanks. I feel like they just push my fat into another area-its weird! I also will have bra cups sewn in. Ahh, long gone are the days of high school when I could just go bra-less in my prom and homecoming gowns.

I agree. Spanx pushes all my fat from my lower stomach up and I get a big roll. No thanks. Unless I'm wearing the wrong kind.

To have cups sewn in, does that actually help you fill out a dress more? My dress was kinda gaping at the top and she said with corset backs you generally need no alterations. She just tied me up tighter but I think if I were to wear it like that the day of the wedding I would pass out! I was feeling kinda light headed at the fitting and I wasn't sure if that's because I stood in one place for too long.

Help me and my boobies! I've never had this problem before being a C cup.

Yes, you'll definitely need your slip before you get your fitting. Basically you need everything, shoes, bra, etc... so it fits just right.

 

I got my slip at David's Bridal, I think it was $40-50.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
