I am in the process of figuring out what I should wear underneath my dress and I have a few questions. For starters, my problem areas are the stomach and thighs. I have considered wearing shapewear that goes up to the bra and reaches the mid thigh, but those things usually cut into my thigh (and I am worried about the inconvenience of going to the bathroom). So, my alternative is a longline bra with a waist shaper. First question, do think the longline bra will show an obvious line at my waist? And will it suck me in enough?
Me wearing the sample dress (a size too small).
Secondly, below are two slips that I think might work. Which slip do you think will work the best?
Slip 1: Fishtail Petticoat
Slip 2: Mermaid Petticoat
All thoughts and opinions will be extremely helpful. Thanks

I voted for slip one with another type of shapewear. I dont think a longline bra pulls you in enough in the area where you need it. I also have my tummy in that area so I refused to buy a fitted dress for that reason. I think you need either an all in one (uncomfortable, I know) type of undergarment or one of the types that are very tight and go all the way to your chest so that it does the best work in the lower tummy area. I’m typing from my phone so sorry if this wasnt clear.

I agree with PP. And an all-in-one type of undergarment will be less likely to give you weird lines. The more pieces you have, the more obvious it will be.
And randomly, don’t you love that shapewear models are always people that do NOT need shapewear? Amusing.

I had a longline bra somewhat similar to the one in the photo, and it did weird things to me under my dress – kind of bumped out in odd places. I ended up switching to a non-long line. This really surprised me, because I was sure the long line would be better.

@mrschmura: I am not much help here. But please keep us posted on what you find that works best.
I will be shopping for these items soon, and have no clue what to buy or where to buy them.
I love your dress. Pretty!
