I’m just curious what other plus size girls are wearing under their dresses? I have a corset dress and so I don’t really need shapewear (and would rather not have anything else constricting), but I would like to cover my thighs so that they don’t rub together. Of course, I would also like something cute and possibly blue… Will this be impossible?
Also, being that my dress is a corset, I feel it holds me in well and I don’t need a bra. However, my mom is horrified at the thought. Are you wearing one?

I am just having cups sewn into my dress (I am a 38D).

Is your dress strapless/with straps? Are you talking about a bra or underwear or a one-piece?
I wore a longline corset bra/top with tanga panties. My dress had boning throughout the bodice and it kept its shape nicely – but the bra kept everything smooth. I thought it was ugly (plain white) but DH actually liked it. 🙂 i think you can wear whatever you like…
But, I would like to say that (especially after dinner/cake) I was really happy to have the extra boning and "suck-it-in" power of my longline bra. you might want to consider it.

spanks. they were invented by gods. Seriously they have little shortie ones that are amazing.

My dress is strapless and I would probably go with a longline if anything.

I went braless (DDs) and was fine. The dress fit well in the bust and held everything in place.
I agree that spanx are an option for the thighs. However, there are lots of cheaper options.
I got my undergarments from http://www.herroom.com- free shipping on orders over $70, big selection of plus sizes, easy returns, lots of reviews of the products.

Some, maybe Miss Kiwi had recommened the Goddess bustier and I was so excited to try it on, but it did not fit my body. They had my trying on a C cup, which is crazy, I am a D/DD depending on the bra, I haven’t been a C since middle school. I feel like I need the lift. Any other brand suggestions?
I’m worried about the tights too, I also don’t want to be too hot, since we are doing a summer outdoor wedding. For normal days I wear this monistat anti-chafing stuff that is pretty good, but I’m worried that it won’t cut it under all the crinolin. Spanks seem to hot.

i am plus size except for the chest area…38C…i am going braless…spanx are good but I worked at a Maidenform outlet store and I love love love their shapewear. I plan on just wearing ivory/white slimming shorts from their line. So I definately recommend Maidenform…the outlets have the same stock as the department stores…its just cheaper! Try them! They have a collection that is made just like spanx only ALOT cheaper (price not quality)
