I am getting married in August and am quite comfortable in my dress, but I don’t like the way my belly looks. I want to buy a pair of spanx and hope
I will be able to hide it this way. I have never worn shape wear before so I am not sure.. What do you think? Can spanx make a difference here ?
Thanks very much for your opinion

Yeah spanx will smooth you out but you might want to get a underbust corset to really hold everything together. It all depends on your comfort level, I would try both under the dress just to see.

Your dress is lovely! Spanx should do the trick.

I dont even think you need spanx! but I get it… we all want to look our ultimate most beautiful… I would recommend spanx ONLY, rather than a corset. The difference they make is just what you might need!
Also, if you dont mind me asking….. can you give me a ballpark of the budget you had for the dress? I’m kinda in love with it and can’t find it anywhere near me! (I live in Washington DC). If it’s within my budget I would consider making the day trip to NYC. THANKS!

Spanx are the best thing that was ever invented. I feel so confident and comfortable and smoothed out when I wear them!

Thank you so much for your comments ladies!
@missnovia: I live in Europe and I haven’t had much budget for it at all. This is actually a sample dress and I got it from a bridal store in the uk. It was around 1000 USD. There are a few dresses for sale right now in England: http://www.preloved.co.uk/search?keyword=eliza+jane+howell+lucille I hope this helps a little!

spanx or any shapewear panty should do the trick.

I agree, Spanx should do the trick!
missnovia: You may want to check out Theia; their dresses are affordable and a very similar style.

bellemusic: as you bought the dress in the uk and so I will assume either uk based or near by have a look at kiss me deadly and what Katie did. Kiss me deadly does corsellettes and girdles which are a bit sexier then spanx but do the same thing (and will look amazing under that dress) what Katie did does the comfiest corsets on earth! I own the morticia and it’s just so comfy to wear.

bellemusic: if you find one you like also check eBay as they are fairly pricey. But they make good money for resale as well. Kiss me deadly also comes up on eBay a lot. Their girdles really do pull everything in like you wouldn’t believe! But getting them on is a bit of a contortionist act.
