Since I’m going shopping and beginning the great dress hunt of 2010, I plan to go armed with proper foundations.
Have any of you tried the new “higher power” from Spanx yet?
What are some of your favorite slimming foundations?
I need help asap! 2 trunk shows this weekend… and trying them on!

I own the higher power panty and I like it!
It doesn’t take off size but it smoothes all the wobbly bits that I don’t like 😉
The only thing if you are going for a sheath dress the seam down the front and back will show through. But with any other dresses it won’t matter!

What do you recommend?
I am going for a size down as I’m actively dieting and planning on losing and want the dress to be a bit more as I’ll be when wedding time rolls around!

No advice, but I just wanted to say that the title of this post cracked me up. I love how you cleared the air first. 🙂

Check to see where you fall in the chart – it is done on a height/weight chart like nylons. If you fall in the middle to upper part of your size I would get that size. Only go a size down if you are at the lower end of the range.
Trust me when you pull them out of the package you will think “how the he** am I going to fit into that!” and it is a workout to get them on LOL! So if you go to small you may not even get them on.

I just had my daughter 6 months ago -so needless to say I wasn’t thrilled to be trying on anything but I bought two shapewears for when I tried dresses on…I was not a huge fan of spanx- it wasn’t as good as everyone had told me.- I spent the 81.00 dollars on it too. The dress I ended up buying I wont need them- but if you are looking for a good strapless bra I found one from macys that is awesome- best strapless I’ve tried on ever! I am 36Dirty Delete and this sucker holds them up great and is comfy

this was one of the other strapless “shapewears” I have which I ended up loving more than the spanx only downfall there is no padding in the cups though but it did keep all the lumps and bumps out.

I ended up getting the spanx half slip. I like it a lot better than the panties/bike short style because it feels a bit more feminine, but is still slimming. It is also totally seamless.
