So I’m torn – do I wear something gorgeous and sexy under my dress so when FH takes the dress off at the end of the night I look amazing (even though I probably won’t be completely comfortable all day) or do I wear practical shapewear so that there are no bumps or lumps to be seen (and I still probably won’t be 100% comfortable all day) or should I just wear boring undies (boy shorts and strapless in beige).
What did you do?

i don’t need shapeware. i’m just going to wear comfortable underwear. if someone buys me the hanky panky i do thong i will wear that. i don’t need a bra since i am having cups built in.

@ajillity81: I’m a size 8 in normal dresses a size 12 in wedding dresses and I’m hippy. I don’t really NEED shapewear, but I’m wondering if it would help. I’m also hippy so I’m thinking about the whole chafing/thighs touching thing.

@MsGinkgo: you will see what is comfortable when you try on your dress.

I wore a sticky bra and a pair of lace back panties.

@MsGinkgo: i’m not wearing a bra, because my dress has an inner corset and cups built in. i’m wearing a thong (yet to be picked out) because i get SUPER warm in my dress. i don’t need shapewear, so i won’t be wearing that either.

@vorpalette: How about the chafing issue? Did you encounter sweaty thighs or chafing?

I voted for shapewear, but my second choice would be for something comfortable.

i wore spanx and callled it a day! It was hot and comfort won out over “sexy”. I wore sexy stuff after the wedding, hahaha.

I didn’t wear shapewear- didn’t need it, and it would be way too hot. I didn’t know whether to vote for practical or sexy, but chose practical; I ended up with a pair of blue lace granny panties. DH thought they were sexy, so I guess that’s what counts!

@LilRhodyGem: Not that I remember? I mean, I was hot at times, but my dress was only 2 plain layers of poly and 2 plain layers of chiffon. No chafing–I don’t normally have issues with that.

I’m going with shapewear. I need it! LOL. Plus I actually find it comfortable for the most part.
I got Rago after reading this post:

I just wore a basic nude bra and nude seamless undies from VS. I changed into a different outfit after the wedding ceremony/dinner, and put on something a bit more sexy then 😉
If you’re planning to wear your dress for the whole evening, you could still probably just change into something sexy later in the night.

I’m wearing those sticky, chicken cutlet things and a pair of undies I already own (they’re cute so why not).
If I had a fitted dress, I’d probably wear my Spanx. They’re not super comfortable (I just hate tight fitting things in general) but I love how they smooth everything out.
