I would try some Spanx.  There is the 30 ish dollar kind but it’s made of nylon material like the ones you wear on your legs.  Then there’s the 70ish dollar ones that are alot tighter and hold you in really well.  I have both and use them depending on how much tummy control I want.  I bought them both at Nordstrom.

For the day of the wedding, I had a bra/corset.  It was the Valmont 7642.  Even if the bra doesn’t fit you exactly, you can have padding put into the bra to make it work (just ask the seamstress at the bridal salon to help you with it).  It helped to prevent my stomach from protruding on the day of the wedding, even with all the food I ate!

I would try Spanx too… just discovered it and I love it!! I prefer the kind that goes to just below your bra, cos I find that the kind that sits at your waist can create strange bulges above it… but maybe that’s just me 😉

Hmm this is a tricky one!  Spanx is more of a smoother and a suckeriner… but I am not sure if that would be as helpful as something maybe with boning that might change your shape a little more.  I think if you are tiny (and it sounds like you are) I wouldn’t worry about it!  Once you find the dress you love, you will feel great in it.  Also, I think once you know what your dress is, you will know what undergarments to buy.

Hi, I don’t know if you find the secret weapon you are looking for, but here’s a great shapewear site:www.annetteonline.com. I think that for your body type you need a shapewear were you can wear with your own bra, so you  ware a 32AA bra or your size and for your tummy a shaper. Check styles SW-205,SW-212, SW-213 or SW-214. This is perfect for you since you can adjust the straps to your height  and as the same time, the shaper will bring your breast a little closer, so you will see a little push up….hopefully this could work. Annette’s quality is #1.
