Just make sure you wear a strapless bra! Keep in mind the sales lady will be in there with you….. Might wanna  avoid the thongs that day…. Lol

I wore a strapless bra and boy shorts for all my appointments. Good luck!

Definitely wear a strapless bra (a must), also wear black or nude comfortable underwear because the consultant is very much so up close and personal in the dressing room helping you. Also you might want to wear your hair half up and down or just down so you can try on different headpieces as well. Congrats and HTH!!!

Yay, that is so exciting! Pergola is a gorgeous dress, but yes, definitely try on other styles! I think dress regret is WAY more likely when you limit yourself to one or two styles, because then you see brides looking gorgeous in a silhouette or fabric you never tried and your mind starts wandering to how it would have looked on you. 

As far as suggestions go…I recommend nude colored underwear so you can’t see it through any of the materials, no thongs since like someone else said the consultant will be there with you (which I thought I’d be weirded out by, but it was no big deal, they do this all day). Don’t wear Spanx unless you plan on wearing them on your wedding day. I find Spanx to be fairly uncomfortable, so I didn’t wear any because I wanted to find a dress where I loved how I looked without Spanx.

And doing your hair and makeup nicely (well, not too nicely, don’t want to get anything on the dress – but at least blow dry your hair and put on some foundation and blush and mascara) will help you feel more bridal.

Wear a thong!  I know it can be a little embarassing, but the last thing you want to see in a wedding dress is panty lines!

They usually give you a corset bra to put on while you’re trying dresses on.  But wear a nude or white strapless anyway or just bring it with you if you plan to wear a bra.

I say go for the cups instead!  It’s a lot more comfortable and a lot of dresses are so low cut that you’d see a bra line if you wear one.

Have fun and take lots of pics!

@DeeVine1217:  haha. Yeah wearing a thong does feel a little odd. I only went to one salon that didn’t have strapless corsets for you to put on so you may want to call ahead of time just to be sure. I always needed to be freshly shaved too lol.

Def no thong… Wear cheekies, spanx Or those lycra short shorts.. And def wear a strapless bra..Some salons i visited did have the straples corset but think how many sweaty bride used them.. Eekk.. If you are insecure about your tummy area, spanx is your best friend and it provides you coverageeeee so your attendant doesnt have to see all you..
