I have bought some pairs of Spanx in the past, and just wasn’t that impressed with their tummy-sucking-in powers – everyone raved, but I just didn’t think they did much more than tights.
So, instead, for something under my dress, I ended up settling on Dr. Rey’s Shapewear from Home Shopping Network – I was wary of buying something from HSN, I never have before, but didn’t have much of a choice because I needed something with a plunge in the front and a low-back, and that was shapewear. Anyways, i love it – way better than Spanx in my opinion! And not too bulky either, but sucks you in very well. Oh, and they are just the same price as Spanx too, some of them even less expensive.
Here’s the whole collection: http://fashion.hsn.com/instant-shape-by-dr_c-fa_a-5061_xc.aspx
Oh, and this is the specific one I bought, it was perfect for my dress b/c it’s a halter and the regular strapless bras they sell in bridal salons were not low cut enough:
And it’s only $24!
Sounds like my situation I had. I just chose not to use the Spanx (which jude made me look bulky) and went without anything. I hear the VS waist cincher is nice though.
@strawberrybaby: what did you end up buying? I have the same problem as yours! Unfortunately, the Dr. Rey’s product recommended above will not work for my gown since the straps would show.
