Yep, a corset will do that really well.  The flip side is a very flowy empire waist (but I’m a bigger girl, and to me, those make me look pregnant).  The corset will made my tummy flat looking and gave me curves I didn’t know I had.

Downfall?  Uncomfortable as all heck!  But, mother said “Hey you’re a bride.  You’re supposed to stand out and look better than everyone AND you’re supposed to be uncomfortable.”  I disagree wth the uncomfortable part, but still, gave me a body I never had lolol

Spanx and a long-line bra, undergarment wise. 🙂

Dress wise, I think you’d be surprised what you like on your frame. Mine is strapless and tight-fitted and I HATE my stomach. It looks amazing.

the corset is part of the dress … I just opted for a corset dress. 

As far as slimming your arms down, a little secret is about amonth before your wedding … work out your arms everyday.  They’ll look svelt for the day of!

Spanx UGH! Good luck getting in and out of them, oh ya and peeing through the “pee hole”! I say go for a corset/girdle, if your dress doesnt have one already! Those bad boys will SUCK you all in!And there are other types of shapewear, controller panties, high waisted undies!

I love Fredricks of Hollywood too by the way!!

I am going to be wearing a ballgown that will zip and has buttons and under it to make my waist look smaller, I am going to be wearing a waist cincher corset. I have already ordered and received the one I was going to wear; however it is a little big, so I will be ordering another one that is a bit smaller. The seller I am dealing with is on ebay and she is very nice. She offered for me to just exchange the bigger one, but since I sew, I am just going to alter it to fit me, so I will have two. Her corset cinchers are very affordable and very nice and only cost $24.95, with free shipping. They have the steel boning in them, so they are not just the cheapo version. I love mine and even the one I ordered flattens my tummy and takes off two inches from my waist. I highly recommend this seller.

Here is a link to one of her listings: http://cgi.ebay.com/SEXY-WEDDING-UNDERBUST-CORSET-BRIDAL-WAIST-CINCHER-L-/270687097240?pt=US_CSA_WC_Intimates&hash=item3f06355198

I would copy the picture to put in here, but her pictures are protected.

EDIT: I also have a baby tummy, so I know what you are talking about 🙂
