I was thinking of posting the same topic! I’m thinking of a corset as well, but I really want something thats still sexy for the special night 🙂 I have no idea where to start though….

I have a corset bra top thing that sucks everything in. I will probably wear a white thong that will match the outfit I bought for after the wedding 🙂

Um…I wouldn’t recommend wearing your “Wedding Night Lingerie” under your dress.  You’ll be all sweaty and grosss…you’ll probably want to drop the dress and hit the shower before the hanky panky.  (Although to be honest, we were EXHAUSTED on our wedding night, and had we not been dared that we wouldn’t be able to do anything, we would have just passed out fully dressed on the bed!)

Your dress should be structured enough on it’s own to not require a corset.  That may just be uncomfortable.  (My boning got annoying after hour 9 for me…)

I wore a bra and spanx bottoms.  And a crinoline.  But that was it, I let my dress do all the rest for me (and really the dress could have replaced the bra too…).

I’m agreeing with Mighty Sapphire I think I might wear spanx to smooth things out and change later

Yep def going with some very un-sexy spanx to keep the hips and thighs smooth, and then changing into something cuter later in the night.  And no bra for me, I’m having cups sewn into my dress… okay 2 cups on each side.  I’m pretty flat chested so I’m doubling up on the padding up there lol.  A bra or corset-type top would just be way too uncomfortable all night.

I’m just going to wear a strapless bra and regular (but cute!) undies.  When I bought my dress they gave me this weird full-torso length bra to wear under the dress, but it was too big so I just went without, and still found the one!  I figure a regular strapless will give a little more oomph than nothing at all, but I don’t want to wear weird uncomfortable underthings!

I am having bra cups sewn into my gown.  I didn’t think of this but the lady who sold the dress to me at the bridal shop (she used to be a tailor) recommended it, and so when I went to my tailor, I asked her about it and she told me she would recommend that, too.  So, I am planning on wearing just Spanx of some sort.
