Just got a call from my bridal shop confirming my fitting for tomorrow (YAY!).
They said to make sure that I bring my Shoes, Bra and Slip…
I wore a few slips when I was trying on dresses, but the ‘ball gown’ style dress i bought has a really soft inside layer so I didn’t really think I needed one…
Also, my dress has a built-in corset, so I am not sure I really need the bustier-bra that I got either…
What do you think bees? Slip or no Slip?

I think slips are pretty much necessary for most mermaid dresses. Ballgowns less so (aesthetically) but may be necessary so that brides can walk comfortably in them!

My “slip” was my crinoline underneath my A-line gown. I also had a corset back but wore a longline bra with it. If you don’t think you need anything, I wouldn’t worry about it!

Any other dress and I would probably be in spanx or something… but i think i might be nakie under my dress, with maybe a cute pair of blue undies…

@redband: Why a must for mermaids?

A slip? I don’t think I’ve worn a slip in 20 years.
Spanx? Yes, definitely.

Nope, I won’t be wearing a slip. But like a PP, I will be wearing spanx!

I’m wearing a slip because my dress is a ballgown style and its hard to walk in it when I don’t have a slip on. It wouldn’t be that bad, except I don’t want to have to hold my skirt up when I’m walking down the aisle.
I didn’t buy my slip when I bought my dress and instead found it online because when I got my dress home and tried it on with heels and everything, the skirt kept getting trapped between my legs no matter what I did! When I was in the store with the slip on, that didn’t happen.

I don’t plan on wearing a slip.

I haven’t purchased one yet, but I have to wear a slip with my dress. It’s vintage and pretty much see through.

@MySunshine: At my bridal store they reccommend wearing one, even just a a very small one to stop the dress from getting stuck between your legs 🙂
