Let’s talk shapewear!

Hi! I have picked my dress (very fitted, deep v front and back) and am starting to think about the best options for shapewear/under garments. What are your plans for shapewear styles for the more fitted dresses taking neckline/back into account? Pic of my dress attached- (first one I tried on!) I think I’ll be adding some ‘illusion’ mesh to in front to keep everything nice and secure Smiley winking

    Wow!! This dress is absolutely gorgeous on you! What a stunner! So I truly don't think you *need* shapewear but I found this one from Spanx perfect for my low back dress and it wasn't uncomfortable at all!

    Your dress is stunning.

    I tried on shapewear at David’s Bridal that was great.

    You dress looks absolutely gorgeous!!

    I would stick with finding shapewear at a bridal store. I tend to find the ones sold in department stores don’t really hold you up

    You look fantastic!!! I have a low v neck and illusion back. I've tried a couple options from department stores but they all rise too high and show in the back. I'm hoping the bridal salon options will be better.
    Following for other suggestions!

    😚 thank you so much! The tea on this dress is: the bridal shop didn’t order this style but it somehow got shipped to the store with the rest of the collection and my consultant loved it so much she begged to keep it in the store. 6 months later, no one has tried it on and I come in, first dress, it was the one!

    I second the spanx plunge, it's what I have. Nancy ganz also makes one, but I don't think it would accommodate a V neck this deep.

    Just wanted to say that your dress looks INCREDIBLE on you! I also have a plunging neckline (but no back). My dress came with the illusion mesh and it really helps keep the girls together, so it's definitely something to consider adding, if for support more than looks (because you've got the look down)!

    Thank you! I agree 100% about the illusion mesh. I dont want to worry about anything falling out and you can barely even notice it's there, especially in photos.
