bayoubee :  I do in the winter, but I live in Minnesota, so if I didn’t I would literally freeze my ads off. Lol

I wore nude thigh highs.  I got married in the winter, in a northern state, in a tea length dress, and my legs are super white so I felt I needed something.  I didn’t need a garter belt as I didn’t have a problem keeping them up.  Mine had lacy tops that were stretchy with silicone bands that I think helped them stay up.

Long gown with open toe shoes and neither here.  If he wanted to see thigh highs under there, he could give me 2 seconds to go put some on when we get back to our room.

Guess I am the minority here. I love tights and pantyhose. I wear them all the time. I’ll likely also have bike shorts on under the dress too since I get really raw on my inner thighs if I don’t.

CMay :  I also love tights and pantyhose! I hate pants and love dresses, so ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

BUT even though I wear them all the time, I definitely don’t see myself wearing them on my wedding day. I’ll probably just wear some spanx shorts underneath to avoid the chubrub. Maybe I’ll attempt to be sexier on my honeymoon lol

I don’t want to wear spanx under my dress this weekend, so instead, I bought control top tights to suck everything into place!

I wore the least sexy bike shorts, but I wanted shorts so my thighs dont rub together LOL. They rocked.

I wore white tights because I wore platform boots that I couldn’t wear barefoot (I am 5’3″ and DH is 6’8″, so I was trying to smooth out the height differential, but it didn’t work). It was also a winter wedding, so I don’t regret it, especially when we were taking pictures outdoors! But the dress was floor length, so it isn’t as though anyone could see anyway.

twright4770 :  I had to wear stockings everyday in highschool as it was a part of our uniform. I’d spend inordinate amounts of time pulling the damn things up because they’d just roll down my hips and stomach.. I hated them and have only worn stockings a handful of times since then as a result.

I’d go stockingless or try a pair of stay ups with a garter belt before the day to see how they perform and if they stay up.  You don’t want to be pulling them up under a wedding dress all day.

twright4770 :  I wore nothing (hose-wise) but only because I totally forgot.  If I had remembered, I’d have worn full hose so my legs weren’t pale as the snow.  I like thigh highs for sexy time, but not for spending the day in; they always start coming down and I don’t need to be hiking my stockings up all day long.  I’d choose practicality over style any day.

I got married at the end of September and I wore pantyhose which I didn’t usually wear unless I get dressed up

twright4770 :  I don’t like the feel of bare feet in a closed toe shoe so I wore thigh highs as I thought panty hose would make using the bathroom in my dress even more cumbersome.  I bought Berkshire Shaping Firm All The Way Sheer Thigh Highs Hosiery 1376 from Macy’s for my wedding day and had no problems with them sliding down.  Hope that helps!

None!  I didn’t wear a bra either, cups sewn in.  I was happy and comfy 😀
