Hmm.  Do you definitely need the spanx?  I wore Maggie Sottero Cleo, so kind of similar shape, and did not feel I needed spanx… the corset pulls everything in.


I really didn’t want anyone to have to help me pee (and I had to pee many times that day) so I did this:


– gathered up the skirt, making sure I had all of the layers and the back in my arms

– pulled the dress up over my hips

– pulled down my underwear with the ohter hand (still holding my dress/skirt)

– sat down normally

– put everything back in place

If it’s only your thighs that you’re worried about, could you try just wearing bike shorts or something? You should be able to get those on and off I would think.

My dress didn’t have a corset back, but I didn’t want to try to use the ladies room while wearing my gown. Because of this, I did take my gown off completely three times that evening so that I could visit the rest room.

@Lizzy723:  if you have a corset back do you really need the spanks i mean the corset will cinch you in it just seams a hassle i might give up on them wear a garter belt with stalkings if you need somthing on ur legs

A tip for being in a big wedding dress is to go backwards, so face the wall then you only lift the front and not have to worry about your train Or petticoat etc. I did this at my wedding and was so much easier

ah the chub rub… i definitely have it too along my inner thighs. have you thought of using a skin lubricant rather than stuffing yourself into spanx? my mom bought me some a while ago (i believe called glide for her) and it is amazing! it comes in a small deodorant-iike tube and you just rub it on to any areas that might chafe. it’s not greasy, is odorless, and does wonders. you could probably easily reapply it throughout your reception if you needed, too 🙂

@Lizzy723:  If you’re worried about chaffing you could try this ? It’s cheap and easy to apply.

@elw728:  Glide is amazing!  I used it when I was running and it totally works!
