@apple: i think i’ll definitely need something to smooth me out, but if it’s not comfy….. i may not wear it, i definitely don’t feel sexy if i can’t breathe lol!!! i may wear some spanx panties or something like that though…

I read the title of your post and thought “how can you not wear shapewear under a mermaid gown?”   If you can get away with it, I say go for it!  (I don’t have a mermaid gown.)

Just undies for me ๐Ÿ™‚ No shapewear and no bra. I’ll probably have crinoline sewn in under the skirt though, to make it fuller.

Right now I’m planning on going sans-shapewear. I tried it on without any, and it seemed to work ok!

@purple: i hated the spanx things from target, either i didn’t buy the right size or they were just uncomfortable, i really want to get the kind from the dept stores and see how i like those.

I bought my spanx from lane bryant and I wear it all day and it’s soo comfortable! I’ll probably wear something under my gown (it’s mermaid as well), I have spanx now, but after I lose weight and actually am able to FIT into my dress (it was a sample dress so I had to buy that size, but I should lose weight easily), I’ll see what I need for undergarments. But I def don’t need a bar with it, it’s tight enough up there already!

Well I’m not wearing spanx (actually I don’t even really know what it is Embarassed) , I don’t work out at all, and I’m just eating my third cookie of the day which I keep sneaking off my boss’ desk…Maybe I should start thinking about a threadmill once in a while, lol. But I have my own mermaid dress worries being short and all so please don’t hate me! ๐Ÿ™‚

For me, it depends on if I ever start my LGN diet and work out regimen!  If not, for sure!

I’m with JoJo – there’s no way I could NOT! My dress looks radically different with Spanx on. 

@meliss: Spanx are basically like control top of hosiery… a stretchy girdle, if you will ๐Ÿ™‚

Possibly, although I don’t think I look too shabby. I did recently purchase some shapewear for the first time (Jockey brand) to wear under a new years eve party dress that was super clingy at the tummy and I have to say I was VERY impressed, that bad boy kept everything smooth and tight, getting it on and off was a pain though but, I will wear it again should the situation call for it. Btw, this item was really inexpensive and I got it from Kohls.

Purplerose: I read great reviews on target.com recently about their shapewear.

I definitely plan on wearing spanx under my trumpet gown!  I also plan on hitting the gym to get rid of a little belly, haha. I’d also love to get some extra crinoline added to the bottom to flare it out a bit more.

I wore some spanx knockoff I bought at Kohls.  The actually spanx never worked well for me because they were always too long – the would go above my boobs instead of staying below them.  The knockoff from Kohls was great though!
