While my dress has a built in corset (which I love), I wanted to get a corset type bra. Reason being I love the way everything just sucks you in and pushes it all up. And I wanted the corset to have an attached garter because I wanted to wear sheer ivory thigh highs. But then I realized that the shoes I want to buy are open toe and ewwwwww, I hate it when women wear open toed shoes with HOSE. ICK.
So the thigh highs are out…and now so is the garter. Now that leaves me with the corset bra. But then last night, the seamstress told me they can just sew in cups that push you up a bit into the dress. This way I won’t be pulling up my bra all night long. And I kind of like this idea. But not sure how much support that would give ‘the girls.’
So if I go that route, it leaves me with just a sexy thong…and that’s it.
All I keep hearing from my FI is how he can’t wait to take off the dress after everything and see the sexy number I’ll have on underneath…umm, err, it might just be a thong, dude…sorry.
What are you wearing?

I was lucky and didn’t have to wear a bra, so I just wore my sexy bride panties and that was it. One zip and my dress was off, and hubs loved it!! He didnt’ want something he needed a manual to get me out of, and he absolutely got his wish!

My seamstress told me that she only recommends sewing cups in if you are an A or small B. I am a C and tried the looks of both the cups and a bra and it looked much better with the bra. I’m not sure how your dress is cut, but I bought a backless strapless corset bra, but it’s a little lower in the back, and it won’t move if my life depended on it. I did by an “I Do” thong and will also buy some lingerie for that night.
I bet your FI will just be so excited to take off your dress at the end of the night that he would be thrilled to see you undressed, even if the only sexy lingerie you have on is a thong.
I am wearing open toed shoes too and no nylons.

Okay, I’m a C cup so perhaps the corset bra is the way to go. I just don’t feel comfortable if the tatas aren’t supported.
@roxy – where did you get your corset from?

I got my bra at Night and Day Lingerie in Andover, MA. I’m not sure which brand the bra is but I can check when I get home and let you know.

@roxy – thanks. I would really appreciate that.

My dress also has a built in corset thing that does a good job of keeping me “in” but I wanted the look of a corset when he takes it off! I got one at Frederick’s that I just hope is comfortable enough for me to wear all night. lol. I HATE wearing thongs, so I have some cute white satin panties that say “Bride” on the back in blue ribbon.

I bought a corset bra. No clue on the undies.

I’ve got very little to speak of up top (A 99% of the time). My dress is a corset back and I’m pretty comfortable with how it feels when it’s laced up. So, I’m going with the nothing on top route.
For my bottoms — I’m going to find something either white or blue and lacy/sexy. FI will appreciate and I’ll also feel sexy all day knowing what I’m wearing!

I have a corset top in my dress and I LOVE the way it makes my chest look and so I won’t be wearing a bra – only a thong also (and maybe some shorts if it is really hot under there!!!!! – not hot but practical!)

i have nothing up top, i’m fine with the cups sewn in. i bought some nice undies, and i’m still debating if i just want to change into something sexy after i get out of my dress. i can get out of my dress myself though, so i can do the whole- i’m going to go the the bathroom and make myself a little more comfortable. or while he’s in the bathroom he’ll come out and i’ll be “more comfortable.”

I’m a DD and my seamstress says there should be no problem sewing cups in/making the top snug enough to be comfortable without a bra. This news is really exciting to me!
As for undies, I’ve been on the hunt for cute lacy boyshorts. I overdid the thong thing in college and have no interest in wearing one for 12 hours!

I got a long-line corset bra to wear under my dress, which is actually fairly cute! I got the le mystere bridal bustier – not cheap but great quality and won’t show under a dress. Now to find some matching undies that will stay put all night!

I’m going shopping after work today exactly for this!!! this post is the best…I have been thinking of the le mystere bustier too, as I need some oomph help with my small girls. My dress has boning but I can’t fill the chest without some chicken cutlets or something which I am against…and it’s shaped like a MadMen dress for some reason on me, with lots of air! I will probably also get a lacy undie, and no stockings, my shoes are evening sandals. Sooo, wish me luck!
