My wedding gown is the Melanie style by Maggie Sottero (see model photos below) and I need some advice on undergarments! The back is ultra low but an illusion style so not overly revealing, but during my initial fitting, my supposedly “seemless” panties were obvious at my hips. I’m considering buying a pair of thigh or knee-length shapers to avoid the hip lines but they all seem to rise so high at the waist. Wondering if anyone out there has any advice for any shapewear lines to try to avoid the hip/butt panty lines without riding so high they will be visible in the back. Not concerned with the bra – I’m having cups sewn in, I don’t have a whole lot to worry about up there 😉

My dress was low back also i had my seamstress saw in cups so i dont have to worry about a bra it was the best and most comfortable option after looking at a bunch of corsets and low back bras and stickey bras. did not do any shapewear so i cant help with that sorry!

I did not wear shapewear under my sheath dress…I would imagine that lines would show depending on the fabric. I found that the only thing I could wear under a sheath was an adhesive bra and seamless thong…Good Luck!

Stunning dress! These are some of my favorite but my body isn’t ment for them 🙁 wish I could lose 20lbs and get my pre baby breast back……

Maybe a nude color fabric put on the illusion park. Kinda ruins it but if you really want/need to wear the shapewear,it’s going to show with that style. Which is a gorgeous dress! I LOVE it!

I have a shapewear skirt from Bodyslimmers than I wear under a white dress I have. At one point it fit, but now it’s too tight so I get those underwear lines on my hips too. Maybe you can get some low rise undies and a shapewear skirt. A skirt might work better just because you can wear it as high or low as you want. Gorgeous dress btw!
