    Susie - lol! You know, if you think you're going to have a problem with yoru dress and seeing that it's being made for you, you still have a chance to change what you want. You may want to consider that, if you're worried.

        Where do you get Spanx anyway? Does Macys Sell them? I'm going to the outlets this weekend (while my FI goes fishing) so I may be able to find something at the bali, playtex etc outlet (but not spanx).

          Hmm...we don't have Macy's out here in the boondocks, so I'm not sure if they carry them, but Dillards has them, as well as Younkers.

            I think Macy's carries them but I'm not sure how large their sizes go - the last time I was there, they were pretty limited on the sizes. I wonder if "plus size" stores carry them in the larger sizes? I mean, I know the SPANX come in larger sizes - I'm just not sure how widely available they are.

              Ladies, if you are looking for a Spanx in larger sizes I would check Lane Bryants. They have all sizes and different types. Hope this helps ;]

                Try Bras, Panties, Lingerie & More - HerRoom. They have a ton of plus sized shapewear besides Spanx. Their Spanx were also cheaper than Lane Bryant. I purchased mine through Her Room, and they had fast shipping.

                    I tried on no less that 15 flowy dresses determined to keep it simple and flowy. They were all either strapless and would look funny if we put straps on them or made me look prego. I finally found a dress that is more structured but made of the brushed satin so it is lighter than the heavy typical materials. Good news it is looks great even without the poofy extra slip so that saves me heat wise.

                      I got my Spanx at Lane Bryant definately has plus sizes. Heather, I'm 250lbs and that is a size "E". They had sizes C-E for sure (C being like 150 I think).

                      Also when I was shopping at Davids Bridal, they sell a type of Spanx. The girl said it is the same manufacturer, but theirs sells for $15 (in Duluth, MN) whereas Lane sold them for $35.

                      I purchased Spanx Higher Power High-Waisted Mid-Thigh Shaper 032 - Spanx Hosiery - which sits under the breasts, and half way down the thigh. I purchased these ones because they cover the thigh to prevent heat rashes on my thighs when they rub in the heat

                      Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs
