I have no idea if this is generally true, but I did find it to be true for me. I tried a couple of different types of shapewear under my dress, and ended up deciding that just the boning in the bodice of the dress gave me the best look. I am a size 4/6, for reference.

It’s definitely true for me.  While I love my gown, it does bother me a little bit that it looks wider on the top than it would without the shapewear on underneath.  Because of the style of the gown though, having the shapewear on is kind of a requirement.

A great pair of spanx always sucks me in a fair amount without add bulk. How tight is the dress though? You might be better off having it let out. Or swearing off carbs until the wedding haha

Spanks are relatively thin and oh baby do they hold it in.

mrs_c_tobe:  So I don’t know how helpful this will be, but the one thing I learned from shapewear shopping is you want to still feel like yourself underneath it all. I definitely would recommend something simple and thin. I tried on all kinds of things trying to get some extra chest support and finally found something that would work, but I felt like a robot being held together with a bunch of straps and hooks. I wanted to feel beautiful on my wedding day and decided that less is more! Found a bodysuit from American Apparel and a stick-on bra from Target and feel so much more confident!
