I have a fit and flare dress. It’s not super tight but it’s fitted. I can wear pretty much any undergarmet I want and don’t have to worry about lines showing through. I was considering spanx for tummy control with a strapless bra or maybe cups sewn in, but I ended up going with a corset! It’s super comfy and holds my tummy in 🙂 (I am 5’4 138 pounds 36D size 8. I just wanted to make sure everything was held in and full of support!). My underwear is lace and the cheeky style (not from VS but that style).

I had the best luck going to a small local lingerie store…they helped me go through my options whereas when I went to any department store I was on my own trying to figure out what fit best.

Does your dress already have boning, corset, or built-in cups?  If it has none, I recommend a bustier (I got one at Macy’s for $20).  It’ll help keep the dress in place.  I’m thinking of having my seamstress sew in cups to mine so I don’t look flat-chested.  I have an A-line so I’m not doing anything below the waist besides underwear.
