While it seems to be very popular online, I don’t know anyone in real life who has worn it for any occasion. I’m not planning to wear it either.

I’m wearing a spanx knockoff for my wedding.  I think lots of people wear these!

Totally – Spanx are great.  I have worn them under dresses for formal parties and would definately consider wearing them under a wedding dress.  I find that are great for my posture, and that they smooth everything out and prevent things like tummy rolls when sitting down.

I’m not but if I needed to hold things in I would wear them in a heartbeat! I am planing on wearing non-sexy underwear for the smoothing effect.  I’m going to pull a switch after the reception 🙂

yes. i am! in fact, if it’s going to be hot — dancing, summer wedding, destination wedding — i find that bare thighs can, like, lead to uncomfortable chaffing. perhaps this is cause i’m a size 14, and therefore, you know… i think you might find curvier brides are much more likely to wear stuff like spanx for comfort reasons, actually.

yeah I totally agree with sleepylittlesailor; without spanx or nylons my legs rub up against eachother and I get a rash!

 

So they are definitely nice for smoothing you out and preventing chaffing.

I live for spanx.. well worth the $$$.  I wear them for almost all formal occasions and they always seem to make the last few pounds that I can’t get rid of at the gym disappear!  make sure you feel comfortable with them though and obviously try then on with your dress!

i’m still debating. i think i’ll wait until last minute to see how my weight is at that time, they say brides tend to lose weight toward the wedding so i’m hoping i wont have to worry about it. i’d prefer not too, i just feel like it would be easier not to worry about switching into something sexy at the end of the night, but if i must i must.

I’m a twig and I still like wearing spanx sometimes because they do still smooth and provide support even for thin girls.  My dress is very form fitting so I’ll probably wear them on my wedding day so that I can actually eat.

i was a BM in 2 weddings this summer and both my girls wore them.  One girl only is tiny too – she just had a form-fitting mermaid dress and she thought she needed it.  She looked fantastic.

I fully plan on wearing some Spanx or something underneath – I want to not worry about how my stomach is looking at the time….

I ABSOLUTELY am wearing mine! I’ve worn them every time I have been a bridesmaid/MOH, and sometimes even wear them as a wedding guest…I am most DEFINITELY wearing them on my wedding day (and even wore them to try on dresses!).  I LOVE spanx!!  They’re super comfortable too…just takes a little work to get them on (but well worth it!)

I’ve also worn mine as a wedding guest. I actually bought them o wear for my wedding and wanted to give them a few trial runs. I think they are great for that smoothing effect and don’t leave lines like tights. I don’t feel like they make me slimmer, just smoother and with out wobbly bits. I guess I”ll decide at my last fitting if I wear spanx or a long line bra under my wedding dress, it really depends how the dress looks with the bra, SPANX are my trusty backup if I cna’t find something cuter.

I wore the Spanx “Power Panty” for my wedding — my dress was form-fitting and I felt more confident wearing some “shapewear.”  But I didn’t like the traditional Spanx when I tried them on, I thought they kind of flattened out my curves instead of shaping them.  The “Power Panty” is more like the top of control top pantyhose.  It was so comfortable, and gave me just the right amount of shaping and smoothing!

I know there have been other posts about this but I was looking on the Spanx website and can’t figure out which kind would work best simce there are so many different kinds!  For the girls that have them, what style do you have??
