What do you all think? I am trying to get ideas of what’s best. A longline bra or shapewear?
I personally am leaning toward having a longline with maybe serious control panties. I have a bit of a tummy and bit of a pot belly 😛
What brands are you all going with too?

I wore a longline bra (Felina) AND shapewear (Spanx). The longline created a not-so-cute muffin top, which the Spanx smoothed away!

I’m about to attempt a 3 piece approach – bra, waist cincher, and control panties. I have no idea if it’s going to work out – ordered everything online and waiting for it to come in. I have a feeling I’m going to end up with shapewear that comes up to just beneath the bust and a regular strapless bra. Longline bras just do not work on my body.

@MardiGrasMambo: Yeah, I’ve decided to do exactly what you are doing, or a piece that is under and waist together, depending on teh peehole situation, lol 😛
I wish you luck! I wasn’t brave enought order online, though I have done my dress and veil. Going into the city this weekend. Best of luck!

I’m thinking of spanks or something for myself. I have a..ahem..concave hip bone area. I hate it and it makes me self concious chooseing a form fitting dress. I REALLY love the all lace sheath dresses. I’m not really sure what to do. I’m thought of a girdle, but they are hard to find in my size.
Maybe you could get a two piece shape wear? I cant imagine the bathroom situation would be fun in a one peice.

@gonecrazy21: lol – my goal is definitely to be able to tinkle if I need to (although I am the queen of being able to hold it!), and by myself!
I ordered from Bare Necessities and they have a 60 day no hassle return policy.. otherwise I don’t know that I would have been so brave. I’ve already ordered 2 longline bras online and had to return those because they didn’t work. Good luck to you, too! Maybe give BN a shot if you can’t find anything you like.

I’m very busty and wore a long line bra with a bridesmaids dress last weekend. Unless I lose serious weight before my wedding, I will probably not be wearing one for my wedding. I looked great standing up but COULD NOT BREATHE sitting down.
