oh god. I went to a seamstress for alterations today, and tried on my dress for the first time in months. In full sunlight, in her studio. Which is an accurate representation of what the lighting situation will be at our wedding: on the beach in Mexico at 3pm.
I’m embarrassed to say it, even. My butt cellulite shows through the dress! I am mortified! I think I’ve gained a few since last time I put it on, or maybe it’s just that the natural lighting was so bright at the seamstress’ studio, but dear god. I about died.
I promptly went to Nordstrom down the street, bought some full-body Spanx, and went back to the seamstress with whom I had left my dress. I tried it on again with Spanx in place and Voila! No more cellulite! However, this stupid dress is bias cut and shows EVERY. LITTLE. THING. Therefore, the “stop line” of the Spanx (just above my knee) shows through the fabric when I walk and my leg presses against the front of the skirt. I have no idea what to do. Obvs I’m going to drop about 8 lbs to see if that helps, but unless I’m willing to eat the cost of this dress and try to find something else in the 4 months before the weddings, I might be stuck choosing whether to flash my loved ones a lumpy ass or Spanx lines.
help me Bees…

You could purchase a slip to wear underneath your gown. I am sure that your seamstress could sew it into the inside of the gown for you.

Can you have any kind of liner sown in?? Like an inside layer so that it’s no so sheer? Yikes, that sucks! I don’t think dropping the weight will help too much, cellulite doesn’t go away, the dress is just super sheer and if you can get it lined, the Spanx would be great!
Hope you can fix it, don’t give up!!

I agree with the PPs, what about a slip or liner? That should provide a little added protection from unwanted lines. Let us know how it works out!

definately a slip or liner of some sort needs to go in!
my mom has a photo of when she was getting her fitting done in her home made gown years ago. standing on i think it was a picnic table, and all you can see because of the sunlight is her bright green underwear! well my sister wore her wedding dress for her wedding, and what do you know day of the wedding and my sister is yelling out from the bedroom… MOM! you can see my green underwear! lol! life goes full circle. my sister ended up wearing bloomers we found in the drawers of my mom’s old bedroom back east. it was great, my sister went down the aisle only to get to her man turn around lift up her dress and proclaim to everyone I”M WEARING BLOOMERS!

Surely you planned to wear a slip with such a slinky dress!

I’ve been using Nivia good-bye celulite and it works! It takes a few weeks to notice anything, and you have to use it twice a day, but it’s been about a month and I have noticed a difference.

I have to say, I never even thought of a slip. I’m going to ask my seamstress if she can sew one in.
