pharmy:  I bought some jockey shorts that were listed as a slip.  They didn’t do much for slimming, but they were very light, very breathable, very comfortable and kept me from chaffing.

I think you’re looking for compression shorts – that’s what I always wear under skirts to prevent the dreaded “chub rub.”  Mine are Under Armour, but I’m sure there are other brands available.  Dicks Sporting Goods would be a good place to check, or any other athletics store.

Nike shorts are also a great alternative too!

Unless you have a ballgown, bike shorts will definitely show through the dress.  I ended up wearing spanx for that reason, but the spanx I got wear super thin (I think they are called trust you thinstincts), and really comfortable.  They didn’t provide as much support as the thicker kinds, but I didn’t want that. 

Another suggestion that my seamstress made was to buy a pair of panty hose and cut them so they are like shorts.  Looking back, I probably should have just done that (my mom bought me the spanx, but they were pricy).

What kind of dress do u have? I wore spanx and found them very comfortable… You might want to give them a try in different styles and maybe order one sizd up for comfort.

pharmy:  I had the same exact problem! I wore white Under Armour compression shorts – you couldn’t see them under my dress and they helped a lot.
