My dress was tight enough in the bust area so I didn’t have to wear a bra and for bottoms I just wore the spanx that go from underneath your bust to a couple inches above your knee.  I didn’t really need much in the way of slimming, but I knew it was going to be super hot (my wedding was 6 August in Kansas) and I didn’t want to have to deal with the feeling of sweat running down my legs or feel uncomfortable if my thighs rubbed together all day.  The spanx worked on both accounts.  I chose the spanx because they have a sort-of-hole built in so you don’t have to take them off to pee, which would have been impossible given the number of buttons on my dress and the time it would’ve taken to get in and out of the dress.  The spanx are not sexy at all, but I needed help getting out of my dress anyways, so I just changed out of my dress at home with my mom and put on sexier lingerie there before going to our hotel with my husband.

Here’s what I wore to answer your question, Rampage Bridal Panties!  I had the matching robe too for getting ready.

As for what YOU should do, that depends on your dress.  Mine was really fitted and structured so I didn’t need any Spanx-type undergarments.

You know what, this is so weird I never thought about this.  And to this day I cannot remember what the heck I wore besides spanx, lol.

The only thing i’m wearing beneath my gown is a pair of white lace panties with “Bride” written in rhinestones. I’m having cups sewn into the dress and I considered Spanx, but I’ve worn them in the past and always felt like a sausage and I don’t think I need them.

I’m thinking you’ll feel pretty secure with the corset and all, I would wear something comfortable or wait to decide until you’ve worn it a few times.

My dress held me in pretty good on top so I went bra-less.  I had a slip that went from under boobs to floor and then I had customized boy shorts with “Mrs. XYZ” on them.  My opinion would be to go as comfortable as possible.  I ended up taking my slip off after the first dance and cake cutting  🙂

My dress is VERY similar to yours, shape-wise! I’m wearing white lace panties that say “Bride”, a strapless bra, and a gigantic crinoline!

I wore no bra (had cups sewn into my strapless dress), and some blue lace panties and some Spanx that went thigh to right under the boobs…I probably didn’t need the Spanx because my dress had boning and whatnot, it just made me feel better like everything was secure.

I wore a longline bra and lace panties. My biggest advice is – have a second pair of undies (and of course have other cute lingerie!) for that night because whatever you wear, bra panty etc, for the wedding will be all sweated out!

I had a special white lingerie from VS that I bought for that night but I wore the panties all day, so when we got to the hotel I was so sticky so I showered and couldn’t wear that same panty! I just didn’t think about extra underwear, LOL so I came out with no undies but whatevs I guess! Was just me and my new hubs!

@mrstaylortobe:  Date twin! : ) And I have been wondering the same thing. My dress has a keyhole back and hardly any structure…I do not feel comfortable NOT wearing a bra and I am afraid of both the cost and look of adding cups to the dress. Then, I think I can wear pretty much any underwear, but I would feel more comfortable with something that will “suck in” a little bit haha

I might be making a post about accessories for it sometime today when I can get a picture off my computer. Maybe I will ask for undergarment suggestions as well. Good luck!!
