I was just wondering what everyone was wearing underneath their dresses? Me- I’m going for 100% function.A strapless bra, spanx shorts shorts/bottoms (to help curb sweating during my outdoor ceremony), and my petticoat (my dress neeeds it)
Am i the only bride seriously not going for the “traditional/sexy underthings?” it seems like nowadays more brides are also going with the spanx/shapewear route too?

I’m large chested, so the cute frilly bras are not going to be enough for me. I’m going with a strapless longline bra, slip, and maybe spanx shorts under that to help with the dreaded thigh rub 😉

I’m wearing my comfy Hanky Panky lace unders, no bra (corset dress), and my crinoline (that has built-in shapewear). I will “excuse myself” my wedding night to freshen up and change into my actual sexy bridal things. I couldn’t last all ceremony and reception, sweating my butt off, in “sexy” things. goodness, I shudder just thinking about it.

I didn’t wear anything up top–my dress was sweetheart and had plenty of boning to keep everything in place. Below I wore some white panties with a cute veil on the butt. One of my friends got them for me as a gift. It made for a cute picture!

My gown is empire waist and has a built in corset, and since the dress flows away from the rest I’m not going to worry too much about it, probably wear a cute lace thong!

my dress had built in support, so i didn’t need a bra or shapewear. i didn’t want to be wearing uncomfortable underwear though either. i ended up wearing a pair of comy but kind of cute cotton underwear. honestly, we were so exhausted by the end of the night that we took a bath together and i don’t think he ever even looked at my underwear when i took my dress off! i wore cute lingerie after the wedding night tho. 🙂

I’m wearing a thOMG and nothing else. My dress has cups sewn in and I don’t need a petticoat or crinolin
***hahaha I have no idea why my phone autocorrected thong to thOMG but it’s too funny to change.

I am not wearing a bra, just cups sewn into my dress. Probably will just wear a thong down below and I have my crinoline. I have the sexy little number to change into after I get back to the hotel!

I wore a Rago lace girdle, which to me worked better than the Spanx options I had tried, and a strapless “add two cup sizes” bra.
Functional all the way, and have no regrets! I was dying in the corset and girdle by the end of dinner, but your wedding isn’t about being comfy, lol. When we got back to the hotel I changed into a super cute white bridal babydoll, and plan on getting a couple more of those and a garter for the honeymoon too!

I wore a mixture. A tailored low-backed bustier out of necessity (though it was sexy), and skin-tight skirt-style shapewear over white lacy underwear.

I’m wearing cute lace boyshorts and a longline strapless bra. I may wear my Rago wasit-cincher, too, because it makes my figure look ridiculous. The thought of wearing lingerie never crossed my mind haha.

CG4268: I was thinking about this today! I don’t have what I’ll be wearing yet, but it will def be spanx! I’d go from neck to toes if I could lol!
I may or may not bring something sexy to wear, or just save it for the honeymoon. 😉

I’m not sure yet….but I really really don’t want to wear Spanx or shapewear. It’s not about being “sexy”, it’s about comfort. I HATE the feeling of things constricting around my middle, but I’m really worried that if I don’t it’s going to be really obvious and look terrible. It seems so common and expected now for a bride to wear some type of shapewear that I kind of feel like I have to. I don’t actually have a dress picked yet, and I know I really prefer princess ballgowns to form fitting mermaids or fit and flares, so maybe that makes a difference.

I had cups sewn in and I wore a pair of boy shorts undies (no frills) that I knew was comfortable.
