My wedding gown is made of silk chiffon, so despite the thin silk lining underneath- it is somewhat see through! I bought a pair of Spanx- the ones that dont have a seam- but the line where the spanx ends and my bare leg begins still shows. I was thinking about wearing nude underwear, but I am afraid those will show too. Anyone have/ had a similar situation and willing to offer suggestions?

I had a similar situation and tried spanx as well, though my reason for not wearing them was that I was tremendously uncomfortable.
I just wore nude colored undwear and made sure they were low-rise. If the band goes right over your stomach, it’s more likely to be visible.
Good luck! My dress was silk chiffon, too and it was sooo comfortable!

They have Spanx that come down to your calf – if worse comes to worse you could try those. The line would probably be less noticable down there.

My dress is also silk chiffon; I am planning on wearing nude underwear that are low rise. I don’t need spanx, so why be uncomfortable!

I have the same problem, and I’m guessing like me you also can’t wear a slip (for me, because of halter-style dress with a low back, and all the slips I find are too bulky and show lines anyway, not to mention the high backs). But if your dress doesn’t have a low back, there are spanx strapless slips, so maybe try one of those? If not, I would just go with either the nude underwear or maybe full stockings/capri length by spanx?

I would talk to your seamstress I’m sure she has encountered this with other brides in the past. Perhaps she could sew a slip (or just an extra piece of fabric into the dress for you?
