Wedding Dress Undergarments

Jenn, on June 6, 2020 at 12:40 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 6
Hello ladies!!

I’m looking for suggestions for an undergarment that will suck in my mid section.
Long story but I bought my original dress in August which was a full corset In itself and I was able to wear a corset bra and anything I wanted under because the back was high. I was really sucked in and had some curves going with that one. But, I was not happy with it, I was super uncomfortable! 2 months before my wedding I cried at my fitting and I hated my dress! Luckily I got it at David’s Bridal and I was able to exchange. So... my new dress I LOVE but it doesn’t have the security of the corset and it’s low back so I can’t wear anything high because you’ll see it. My wedding was moved because of COVID so I have some time now to do some more shopping.
I feel a little loosey goosey in it. I’m looking for an underwear or something that will just suck in that lower area a little. I attached some pictures of the area. Also attached a side by side of the two dresses for fun lol.
Anyway...suggestions of anything you’ve tried that works well???

    Try Shapermint or HoneyLove. There are alot of good reviews on those on the boards and they won't be seen with the lower back.

    Hi Jennifer! Do you think low-rise Spanx shorts would work?

    Here are a few other forum discussions I found with more shapewear suggestions:

    I really like the new dress! I second checking Shapermint- I’ve loved the stuff I’ve gotten from them. Good luck!

    You look beautiful! But i just went to Bloomingdale's and the sales ladies in the lingerie department helped me! They were fantastic and equipped me well - to say the least haha Smiley smile

    I think I bought something from every online retailer 😂😂 nothing seems to work well for me. Some suck in but aren’t quite seamless and you can see the panty lines. But you know what, I went to try on my actual dress (the one in the original photo was one size too small; that’s all DB had to try because it was a new dress) and it doesn’t look so bad. I’m thinking of going with comfort and forgetting about any spanx under. However, I will give Bloomingdales a shot, that’s a great idea. Wedding Dress Undergarments 4

    I know someone suggested honeylove and I was going to suggest them too -- until I saw the back of your dress. The honeylove shapers are very high waisted. Like, you can tuck them under your bra, high. I bought one before I went dress shopping to wear when I shopped and it was great.

    Now, that being said, you can try shapermint, as also suggested. You can also try or Oh...and has shapers too. Good luck!
