I’m very short waisted and find that high waisted spanx always end up rolled around my tummy in a very unflattering fashion.  I took the liberty of posting a picture of the dress though, so maybe other bees can chime in on what they would do.

I think that I would wear them, just for the fact of having that extra support.  There is no reason to feel like you have to suck it in if you have something that will help!  Find ones that fit you correctly and you’ll have no problem!

Wow your dress is beautiful!

I went to try on my dress last weekend and bought a “trumpet crinoline” with spanx-like top.  It was very tight and didn’t feel like it was going anywhere! At least I hope it won’t!  It looked something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mermaid-Trumpet-Petticoat-Crinoline-Underslip-Size-S-/170483021723

This is me when I tried on my dress, with the trumpet crinoline under the dress. My dress will need to be taken in a bit to make it more fitted, but like you, I definitely need something will not show lines.

I’m very short-waisted, too–I know exactly what you mean.  I probalby won’t need spanx for my wedding dress, but when I’ve worn formal adresses in the past I’ve used the high-waist shapers that you can hook into your bra (don’t recall the name, but they have them at Nordstrom).  I’ve also found that the high-waisted ones can be slipped up under the edge of the stay-in-place strapless bras that have a little rubber lining along the band of the bra and they tend to stay up.

Hope this helps..
