I have my fitting this weekend and I’m trying to decide if shapewear will be helpful in my dress. My dress fits almost perfectly. The only area I could see shapewear maybe having an effect would be the ribcage area. The dress is a little tight there, but not overly so. I’ve actually lost about 5 lbs since I last tried my dress on, so I think I’ll have a little more space there naturally. The rest of my dress is pretty flowy so I’m not concerned about tummy, thighs, etc.
But would shapewear even help that area? Or is it more just for the tummy/thighs area? I don’t want to add unnecessary items to an otherwise almost-perfect and comfortable dress, but if it would help then I’m open to it!
So then my next question is; if you think it would help with this dress, what type should I get? Bodysuit, open-bust, bodysuit with shorts…?
(Ignore the sheerness of my dress; that has since been fixed!)
