I’ve got my long-line bra, underwear, and an underskirt thingy to make my skirt poofy.  lol  If there’s more included no one’s told me yet…

I almost bought a longline bra, but it was like $80.00 for a good one, and it will be difficult to rewear, so I bought a good strapless at Victoria’s secret for 60 and a spanx assets shaper for like 30ish.  Works great, no seams.  I can reuse the bra, which is a plus!

My dress was so super fitted on top that I didn’t even wear a bra. I was so, so upset at my first fitting because the armpit pudge looked awful no matter what I did, and it took about 20 minutes to figure out it was the stupid bra they sold me that was pushing everything up to places it didn’t belong. 😉

Also, one of my pre-wedding nightmares involved trying to pick a nightmarish wedgie while wearing that gown, and let’s just say I decided on comfy over sexy for the day.

My dress was very fitted on top, so I went without a bra. I wore cute lace VS hiphuggers that had a blue bow. They were my something blue!

My longline bra that I purchased didn’t work under my dress. I opted for stick on cups. And a w waist corset without the cups (Got at wal mart for 8 bucks). It gave the feeling of a longline bra without the added Bulk to the breast area. Worked great Because it gave me stability in the belly area too. 🙂

I almost purchased a long line bra from David’s Bridal but it wasn’t comfy in the least and honestly I felt like it added bulk and didn’t do anything to shape me or support me (I kept telling the alterations lady it was too big and she said it wasn’t but there was a lot of gapping in the boob area which is odd as I’m usually a D or DD (depending on the bra) so I didn’t buy it ($79.99 + 13% HST) and decided to use my shapewear that I already owned (it’s better than a Spanx (alot more expensive too), I’ve had it for a few years and it works AMAZING and buy a strapless bra (I have one in black but needed nude or white, it doesn’t come in white so nude it was).

I ended up with a 42 D and there is no gapping, no major side boob (another issue I had with the longline bra) and it’ll work great with my dress so I spent $30 (bra’s were on sale for $29.99 + 13% tax at Addition Elle) and am debating on a cute pair of white lace boyshorts vs the thong (just incase of the always lovely wedgie)

A What Katie Did corset and some sort of knickers, probably comfy cotton ones. And a strapless bra if needed.
