I am going out of town to go dress shopping and as I’m packing, I’m wondering what to wear to my appointment. I am probably going to wear a casual dress to be comfortable but I don’t know what to wear under it. Did you wear spanx or a body shaper to your dress shopping appointments? If not, did you bring something like that with you?

I have always just tried stuff on in my normal skivvies.

I brought spanx, a strapless bra, a pair of super high heeled shoes, and some chandelier earrings. I think the spanx were a waste of time though because wedding dresses are so structured that it really didnt make a difference. Def bring the bra and shoes though.

I just went with a strapless bra and full coverage undies. You can go for spanx if you want, they will provide more modesty in the dressing room. But I found that dresses with a corset back will do a lot to enhance your figure.

I wore spanx, longline strapless and brought heels. I usually wear spanx and I am wearing them on my wedding day, not necessarily to hold me in because the bra does that, but because it does truly smooth you out.

Spanx and a strapless bra! I wanted to be a little more covered – I’m easily embarrased!

I wore a Spanx-like strapless slip both times I went dress shopping. It was more light/medium control (not the industrial-strength kind LOL), and it did help me feel a little more confident in the dressing room. I also liked that I was a bit more covered up if the salesperson had to help me get into a dress. When my dress came in and I went to my first fitting, I forgot the slip, and was very pleasantly surprised to find out that I didn’t really need it.

I wore spanx and a long-line strapless bra. I had to use their crinolines. I also brought the shoes I was thinking of wearing.

I wore high heels, what I call my wanna-be-Spanx which are cut like a boyshort, so they smoothed stuff out, but provide full coverage (I typically wear thongs and wanted to spare the consultant from having to see my booty) and strapless bra.

i wore them. when i made the appointment i asked what most people wore and she said spanx and a strapless bra. i had never worn spanx before, so i had to go out and buy some. when i put them on there was a pee slit in them!! i had no idea! so i threw a pair of nylons over them because i didn’t want to change in front of some lady wearing unattractive, easy access undies
