Wear whatever undergarments you are planning on wearing to the wedding.

The crinoline recommended is probably to make your skirt a bit fuller.  You can always try your dress on with and without the crinoline to see which you like better.

I believe I have the crinoline you mentioned, mermaid shape with spanx-like top.  yes, it was fairly expensive (about $80.00 online) but the spank part was totally worth it!  You’d pay that much for decent shapewear anyway.  I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with my dress, but personally I think the best combo is this:


have them sew cups into the dress

have them add wide elastic with hook & eye closures (just like the back of a bra) to the inside back of the dress.  It does up nice and tight, then you just zip or tie up the back of the dress

add the crinoline/spanx to control your lower half.
