    danibelle:  I’m pretty slim but I wanted to look my absolute best on my wedding day so shapewear was a must. Not Spanx though…I went with this one from Rago. It was amazing and surprisingly comfortable.

    @danibell:  I am having the same dilemma, and some are surprised that I am not going to wear a petticoat  –  I think it would be too hot for me!

    sillysillybee:  Did you order this in your true size, or did you have to go up a size?  Also, did you have any problems with the thicker lines being visible through your dress at all?

    Thanks for any info you can give!

    sjm15:  I ordered in my true size….small. If I had gone up a size it would have been too big and defeated the purpose. It’s tight and a little difficult to get on the first time but it was comfortable after a few mins. The support lines were not visible when I had my dress on and did not create any weird bulging. Just smooth and sexy.

    I’m proably out of the norm here, but I just wore a pair of my dance shorts under my dress.  The bodice of my dress had a lot of boning in it and they sewed in the bra, so my goal was just to be comfortable.
