i thought of wearing thigh highs, but i thought they would fall down too, so i am just wearing underwear – no stockings of any kind

Not sure about what stockings to get, but have you ever tried fashion tape?  I bought some at Jo-Ann Fabrics one time to keep a blouse from exposing my chest when I bent over and it stayed on nicely all day.  Granted, I wasn’t sweating under a wedding dress.  Maybe you could pick some up and “sweat test” it.

 

ETA: Just realized your wedding is in January, so you probably won’t have to worry about sweating!

I hate thigh highs because they always roll down whenever I tried them

I wore thigh-highs and a garter belt. I had no issues! The garter belt is definitely the way to go. Plus, Darling Husband thought it was super hot.

They do fall down and they also cut off the circulation to your legs. Not drastically, but slowly, over time.  They also make your thigh kind of cut off so unless you’re a bone rack, you’ll have over hang.  Not pretty.

Why do you have to wear stockings at all? I am SO hot under my dress with nothing on my legs…I would stick with underpants…

I freakin love thigh highs.  I feel so sexy in them.  I don’t wear them often, but when i do, I feel like a Diva.  I get the Calvin Klein ones and I never had a problem with the staying put.

Hell, this thread makes me want to go put some on now…with this ratty work out t-shirt. 

ETA: I didn’t wear them under my gown tho.  I got married in Houston in the summer so I would have been a sweaty beast!  I’m not sure if you’re wearing them for shoe purposes or the sexiness factor.  If for sexiness, you can just slip them on at the end of the night. (but you’ll prolly freshen up again anyway)

Personally I just can’t wear thigh highs. Like a PP said, if you have even the smallest bit of extra flesh on your bones you will end up with thigh muffin top and it neither feels nor looks glamorous. I find them supremely uncomfortable.

Why won’t regular stockings work with your gown?

I haven’t shopped there in ages but when I did  Fredericks of Hollywood had great thigh highs with lace tops that have a clear, rubbery lining that sticks to you and they stay up great. I never had them slip or roll down.
