@sienna76:  I got a spanx like shapewear product that has lace around the leg holes to avoid the line you can get there – maybe look at getting some like that to avoid it? I’m going commando under the spanx as my dress is satin and shows everything.

I have the “skinny britches” kind of Spanx and I love them. I won’t wear a dress without them and I’m wearing them under my wedding dress too. They’re awesome. They don’t leave obvious lines where they stop on my thighs and I have pretty doughy legs. These are the ones I have.

@sienna76:  I bought underwear at Target (thats right… Target) that are the MOST AMAZING seamless panty ever. I think I have about 10 pairs, they are SO comfortable and totally seamless. I even wore a nude pair under a white dress and you can’t tell AT ALL. 

They are by Gilligan & O’Malley… http://www.target.com/p/gilligan-o-malley-reg-women-s-micro-seamless-bikini-assorted-colors-patterns/-/A-14261713#prodSlot=large_1_25

I am obsessed. The only issue is, they arent THAT great quality, so I’ve had to replace most of them. The little cloth thing in the crotch tends to come apart. But they’re only $5 and awesome, so I don’t mind 🙂

@sienna76:  I have not worn them with dress pants, only under my satin wedding dress. But I would have thought not – they are pretty seamless and the point of the lace is that it means you don’t see a line from it. Like I said, my wedding dress shows *everything* so I would have thought you would be fine in dress pants with them. But if you are worried I would just take your dress pants with you when you go shopping so you can try them on together.

@sienna76:  Seriously, no VPL. At all. Order them online! I swear, you won’t be disappointed.

@sienna76:  I wore it all day for my wedding, and many other times and can’t remember ever noticing an imprint. I do remember it being a tad bit itchy during a hot day though.

I actually just bought six different styles from Amazon, and with my Prime account I will be able to ship the ones I DON’T want to use back for free and for a full refund!  I want to order some of the RAGOs, but I wish they had them in tan!  They will really show under my reception dress if I order them in white!

sienna76:  Yay!! I am glad you like them. The only bad part is once you wear them too much, they start to fall apart 🙁 But then you just go buy more since they’re like $5 each lol

I am a SPANX afficionado — I have four pair!  My favorite pair look a bit like the ones you posted and only have seams on the inside of the thigh so it is not noticeable.  I have never had a problem with them riding up but I would caution against getting them too big.  I wish I would have sized down!
