My wedding dress was a similar cut (keyhole back so bodysuit also a no-go). I wore shorts that came up to right under my boobs and were about down to my knees. It was really perfect, as at the bottom the dress flared out a bit so you couldn’t see the line of the shorts and the dress was a bit looser above my waist than at my waist so no lines there either.

You have a couple options. You could wear the biker shorts (boobs to knees), which are my personal favorite because they still give shape to your booty without smashing it down, prevent any chafing or rubbing of your legs and you can just pull them under the back of your bra, so that you don’t have your bra and spanks making any weird back fat rolls. 

Spanks also has a tube dress of sorts that you could probably wear with this dress. It fits around your ribcage area and comes to an above knee length on me. It isn’t as form fitting (not as much sucking in power) but it’s comfortable, and gets loser around your legs so you can walk comfortably. 

If I were you, I’d go to the store and buy a bunch of different options and try them on with your dress when it arrives. Since you don’t know how the dress fits yet, it will be hard to know which spanks will be better.

I’d go with the biker shorts option that PP mentioned. I have a similar pair and they are the best pair that I’ve ever had.

All the PP above are correct!  This is the one I wore under my wedding dress and it felt so good because it held in my tummy and made the booty look FAB!  lol!

Yup… I agree with everyone else… do the longer biker shorts to under boob like PP just posted. I wear them so often I have like 3 pairs for different types of dresses I think. It’s helpful to be “tucked in” but it’s also a nice modesty piece to have with some dresses in case a “fresh” gust of wind comes while at a football game…and yes that has happened. 

The one I got for the wedding though I think was from Dillars or Macy’s perhaps and had some plastic boning in it and a hole cut in the bottom (in case you didn’t want to take it off for potty trips)… that was amazing (and I took it off for said trips) but it gave support, coverage and helped in keeping me standing straight and not slouching all day. 

Invest in a piece you’ll wear again and feel good in!

Throwing in another vote for biker shorts! They’re seriously the best!
