Bareneccessities.com is my favorite site for shapewear (and they are currently having a HUGE sale!).  They are easy about returns.  I swear by both SPANX and Assetts (the cheaper version available at Target).  Just check the size chart carefully before purchasing.  When I bought Assetts in my appropriate size they were easy to get on, but I wanted more sucking in power so I bought them a size smaller.  It depends on how much you want to struggle. 

I suggest buying the slimming shorts as high waisted as possible so it doesn’t roll down when you sit and then getting either bra cups put in your dress or a pretty strapless bra that wont show.  I don’t reccomend the fancy shmancy corsets and lacy things as they might show through your dress. They have some pretty shapewear that has lacy parts too if you care about that, I just care about looking slim! Smile

Also, not to give u Too Much Information but if you buy the spanx with the “Cotton double gusset” that means it has a “pee hole”.  It really does work but it takes practice to not make a mess LOL so practice going to the bathroom in them before your wedding!!!!!

Like @MissMusic: suggested I am having a bra put into my dress and got super high waisted sucker-inner underwear at Kohl’s. They have some pretty decent stuff there, but I don’t really remember seeing any that looked “pretty”.

Mine are industrial. LOL! I am NOT going to look attractive when the dress comes off at all. They look like an old school girdle.

@chasesgirl: I’m sure you can get a strapless bra that works. Bring a picture with and go to Nordstroms or VS and have someone help you find one where the strap won’t show. Maybe get a few to take home and try – just leave the tags on.

If you get underware that goes up high enough so they meet the bra you’ll be totally covered underneath.
