- Wedding: June 2014
Hello all bees! I’ve been a lurker for weeks, and I’m finally posting! I desperately need help with shapewear. Not for my wedding dress, but for my engagement dress. I know it’s out of order but we’ve already picked the date, venue, etc for the wedding. We’ve been waiting on a custom ring to be ready and it’ll be arriving in a few weeks. He wants to ask me properly (yay!) and I know it’ll involve going somewhere nice and dressing up a bit.
So here’s my dilemma – I’m a bit of a big girl (5’9″ and size 10-12), and I detest my tummy. I have a sweater dress that’s so pretty and I won’t be shivering like a chihuahua. I just need something that’ll seriously hold everything in place that needs to be. I’ve heard good and bad things about Spanx, and I’m not opposed to spending the money. I just don’t want to waste the money on something that won’t work! So please, suggest brands/styles!
