I have a very flowy dress that I absolutely do not want to add any volume or poof to. I generally hate wearing slips so I’m wondering if I have to wear one under my gown. It’s layers of tulle with a solid skirt underneath so there’s no see through factor. The bridal store has already tried to sell me (one of theirs of course), but if I really have to I will (just purchased from a cheaper place). I’m going in for fittings in a few weeks and kwanted to know before then. Thoughts?

renwoman: I would suggest that you do. Only to avoid that awkward moments when the dress decides that it wants to slip between your legs and trip you (LOL). I’ve seen it happen and it’s not very pretty. And if you really don’t like it you could just wear it for the pictures and the ceremony and take it off for the reception.

You could get away without one, but I think it would be a good idea to at least get a 1 layer slip of whatever style dress yours in.
It’ll keep you from stepping on it, or if it’s windy.. blowing all over the place [and as pp mentioned, going between your legs]. It helps keep the dress in a…dress shape.

renwoman: Can you post a picture of your dress? It’s hard to say whether you’d be better off with one without without seeing the dress.

renwoman: This is a great question. I just assumed I didn’t need to since my dress is not at all see-through but I just saw Barbie_Stylz thread and her gress looks SO much better with a petticoat. My second fitting is tomorrow so I may already be too late. :/

Without seeing the dress it’s hard to say and as long as there is no chance of it being see though I don’t see that you have too.
But I found my dress hung better and didn’t cling with a slip.

Opps! Didn’t realize that the pic didn’t load!
