You don’t look like you need spanx at all. Can they sew cups into your dress that you could then put cutlets in to give you a lift? Otherwise I think a longline bra with some padding would be a good idea. Sorry I don’t know the names of any good ones.

That dress looks great on you!  Are you wearing anything under it in the pic?  I would either suggest cups sewn in (great, idea, PP!) or a bra (maybe just strapless?  I have not met a long line bra I like), whatever would be comfortable for you and not show under the dress.  Victoria’s Secret bras are comfortable to me (36A/34B).  The benefit of cups would be that they wouldn’t show at all no matter what you did.

As for the bottom, I don’t think you need spanx!  Maybe a slip to add another layer to keep you from sweating on the dress itself–maybe with crinoline at the bottom to add some poof if you wanted?

I hope we can get some brand name-savvy bees to help you out!

Uhhh… you look AMAZING!!  I don’t think you need spanx…. but if you insist, maybe a light hold slip would help you feel pulled together?

I just had cups sewed in, and a seamless G string. You have a tiny frame and the dress looks great. Spanx can be quite uncomfortable, plus I dont know whether they would make them small enough.

You look great! I agree with the cups idea. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and longline I believe has a longer waist, so more support (and also squeezes in the waist). I don’t think less busty gals really need them.

@JamieAnnette:OOOhhh! that looks perfect! I have been searching for a bra for my trumpet style dress forever! Do you know if the one you are getting has garters like the one with straps? My dilemma with a bridal bra is that it has to have ALL of the following: ooomph for the boobies (i’m a 34B), body shaping/no seems showing (tight mermaid/trumpet dress), and still be somewhat sexy for the wedding night? thats why I was wondering if this one had the garters or not?

@JamieAnnette:

So, I tried on the victorias secret longline strapless slip and HATED it. It did absolutely nothing for my chest area and the skirt bottom had an elastic band sewn in that really dug into my thighs…not very comfortable. Also, the material it was made out of had me feeling hot just in the store, I can’t imagine wearing that under my dress in the summer. I ended up purchasing one of their excellent strapless bras and am wearing a body shaper. This is not the sexiest choice, but it was the most flattering and comfortable.

@newusernametonotgivedressaway: I would get cups sewn in . I understand about the love handles, I have a modified mermaid and even though it has the ruching that sucks everything in I am still overly conscious about my love handles. If your worried about it  I would either go with spanx or a fit and flare crinoline if you want your dress to have more pouf. my fit and flare crinoline does a spanx’s job b/c it goes up to right under my bra and sucks everything in. David’s bridal has one for only fifty bucks ๐Ÿ™‚
 I can post a pic of mine under my dress after my first fitting this saturday if ya wish ๐Ÿ™‚ Our dresses are similar and we are similar in size also  I believe .
