what to wear under the dress?

Recommended Posts

I will be wearing a strapless bridal bra, my spanx, and possibly crinoline under my gown. I bought the crinoline to go under my dress but not decided if I really want the added poof. My dress has some crinoline already built in and I think that it is probably enough. I love all the cute personalized panties but again I am undecided.

This is becoming a pressing issue that i hope you ladies can help me with!

 

I don't have a traditional dress, but it is backless and sideless, so my options are limited.

This is my dress:

BCBG MAXAZRIA Blue Jersey Gown by BCBG

 

mine is actually a lighter shade, but same style. When i took it in to have it hemmed, i asked about her sewing cups in and she said, yes she could do that, but the stick on ones would give me better support. The girl in the picture appears to have NO boobs, but i am on the larger side of a C, so i need some added support.

 

 

I have this, but it totally wonâ€t work because you would see the flaps and how weird would that look?!

Victoria's Secret - Adhesive underwire plunge bra

 

 

I got this, and I have tried it on with little success (it doesnâ€t seem to do much LIFT-wise) – am I doing something wrong? Do I need more practice? They just sit there, stuck to my boobs – but not doing much else.

 

Victoria's Secret - Invisible shaping bra

 

So, has anyone tried these? Victoria's Secret - Adhesive invisible lifts

 

 

 

Does anyone have any other suggestions? You may have noticed by my profile that i need to find something SOON!

 

Thanks ladies!

So my mom got the body shaper for me and I tried it on. It sucked everything in like spanx does, and it has the cups at the top. My dress fits a lot better with it on and I don't have to worry about keeping my puppies in place now. They sit where they should be, and that works for me.

Does this one work? I have a dress that this would be perfect for!

I bought this once and I had the same problem, it just looked like a squishy thing stuck to my boobs.

I had something like those once, only the sticky came up and covered the nipples. they were ok. however one night i wore them out dancing and the sweat and the alcohol and there i was sticking my had down my shirt ripping them off. and i didn't think they provided much support at all. oh and for the record i'm a c, so it's not like there was a ton to support.

Good luck finding something that works. Can you alterations person sew in an underwire like the first link you posted, and then chop off the little side sticky parts?

She said it would ruin the lines of the dress and then it probably wouldn't hang quite right. blush2.gif

I suppose at the end of the day, i will see what works BEST, and if the girls sag a little, well, it is what it is. A preview of our happy marriage! smile120.gif

I am a 34DD and my corset dress is plenty to keep the girls where they belong.

 

I have enough layers to also be in a position to sport black tights, but I'll be opting for blue underpants... probs from LaSenza... or maybe something funny!

Where did your mom get it...do you have a link?

I am not sure if I will need anything as my corset top holds the girls just fine...but as for other things I have tried...I really hate strapless bras as you are constantly pulling up on them.

My suggestion is getting something sewn in, or these spanx things...I know some graduation students that used something like them and they really worked well.

Good Luck!
