Hello my fellow Bee’s…. Just wanted some advice. I will be 4 1/2 almost five months at my wedding! This was totally not planned but we are so happy about!! But I bought my wedding dress several months ago! Ahh! My dress is a drop waist roush strapless lace up back dress. So my question is what do you all recommend for shape wear under this gown! I’m praying everything fits Okay as we only have 6 weeks! Yikes!

Do you have a photo of the dress? Or of you in it? Maybe you can alter the dress to minimize/eliminate the dropped waist. If you’re not showing a lot by then, then it probably won’t look too different.
Non-strapless dress: maternity spanx + bra for support
Strapless dress: maternity thigh-shaper + strapless bra

@kdjess84: I saw an episode of SYTTD where they put a fake belly on the bride in her dress that is about the stage she will be on her wedding day, and they altered it to fit that– maybe you could do that?

Maternity spanx only smooth out the legs & back. They have a thim layer over belly. I would just do your regular or sexy undergarments. I will say in 5 weeks you can get “pouchy” belly. Mostly bloat. I would think about getting the dress let out a little since its drop waist.

thank you all for the advice!!! I will definately do that! and Yes Bloat! I am still exercising so that always helps with that! just absolutely no salt for me until then! haha! Houston we are on the final count down!
I am going to check the spanx out today and talk to my seamstress! You know whats crazy, i need no other alterations done on the dress! which is nuts! it fit really good 4 months ago and still does now! so I am crossing my fingers! haha
