So I might be new to this, but how many of you are wearing spanx or some sort of “gut sucker” under your dress? I have a corset with dropped waist, and wondering if I could get away with wearing one too? OR does the dress do most of the work?

corset dresses usually do a much better job than any spanx but I am wearing them for the thighs because my dress is more fitted through the hips and legs than I am prepared to bare without my trusty spanx

I wore Spanx… but then I wear it any time I dress up! I didn’t notice it at all and I think the dress was doing most of the work, so maybe I didn’t really need both. I am really self-conscious of my gut, so I wore what made me feel confident.

I have a drop waist coreset dress as well and I’m going without spanx. There’s just no need for it. Thank goodness for steel boning.

My bridal consultant actually told me I shouldn’t wear Spanx under my dress. They said from past experiences of brides they’ve heard from, the Spanx can bunch up or shift and that it throws off the look of the dress. The bodice of mine has boning and the skirt is A-Line so she said I should be fine with regular underwear and that I may not even need a bra!

I didn’t wear the undie Spanx garments, but found a nice tight waist cincher piece instead. Worked like a charm – until the dancing started, when it rolled right up into a ball around my boobs! 😉

When I went to try dresses on I wore Spanx. After I got my dress, I tried it both with and without Spanx – I actually preferred it without the Spanx. I have a belly, which is what I use Spanx for, and it actually emphasized instead of de-emphasizing it! So weird. I wear Spanx with lots of other dresses, but in my wedding dress they were unnecessary. I think it all depends on the other undergarments you’ll be wearing and the type/fit of your dress.
