I am having a ML Scarlet imitation custom made for me by a friend’s MIL. She is going to sew in cups for my chesty-o, but what about the bottom half of me?!?!
Please share: Did you wear any special garments (i.e. Spanx) under this slim-fitting dress? How did you feel about it and did it work the way you wanted/expected? Or did you forego the granny-pantiness and wear the sexy lingerie that is so important for the wedding night!
I look forward to getting inspiration myself!

I’ve personally not seen or tried on that particular dress, but I know that all the slim fitting dresses that I tried on when I was wearing my Spanx looked a LOT better than the ones that I tried on with regular underwear on. Dresses like that, for me, show every little bump or curve (even though I’m relatively fit… every cookie shows!).
I don’t have pics, but I’ll look around and see if I can find any!
Oh, and if you’re set on some sexy lingerie for the wedding night, why not change out of your spanx and into something prettier (or have someone help you!) right before you leave for the evening? He doesn’t have to know that it wasn’t under there all along! 😉

driftslikesmoke: What style of spanx do you have? I checked out their website and was a little overwhelmed by ALL the styles they had. I’m a little behind the curve and just thought they had one or two styles. My main concern is those nasty bulges where the top of the undies hits. You know, sometimes its better to wear nothing!

jeffreysgirl, when I first started trying on dresses I thought I wanted a sheath and was self conscious about my tummy softness, so I have a Hide & Seek Hi Rise panty. They make them in thongs now, too, which is good if you have a super tight mermaid-style dress.
They also have slimmers for hips and thighs, but I like the way the Hide & Seek has a little hip & top of thigh coverage, too.
I have a pic of myself from a dress trial both wearing and not wearing the spanx underneath that I’d be happy to share if you’d like to see. It only makes a subtle difference in the smoothness of the lines for me, but some people see dramatic results with them. They’re great!
