I’m wearing a crinoline and underwear…that’s it.  My dress has a lot of boning and cups already in the bodice, and it’s lace-up back, so I don’t need a bra.  I might end up wearing Spanx to suck in my belly depending on how many Doritos I eat between now and then.  you can also have your seamstress sew in cups when you have fittings, if that makes you feel better about not wearing a bra.

i am planning to just wear undies. I shouldn’t need a bra based on my dress (although depending on your dress maybe a long line bra? I’m also not planning on spanx because my dress has lots of boning on its own to suck me in and i want to make peeing as easy as possible! lol

I am only wearing underwear – no bra, corset, slip, spanx or anything like that! My dress has cups in it and is very fitted in the torso so Im not concerned. I am wearing blue undies as my something blue and Im glad I wont be wearing anything more because it will be so damn hot!

My dress needs a slip (and underwear and a bra).  Its see-through in sunlight.  I think you need to see how it fits without and whether it is see-through (check in sunlight) etc and go from there.

I am wearing undies (blue), a long-line bra, and an A-line crinoline.  It really depends on the silohuette of your dress.  You can have cups sewn into the bodice so you don’t need a bra.  If the skirt is fuller, it might need a crinoline.

@royalmuskoka: just an FYI: I was trying on a crinoline on the other day (they never gave me one to try on when I got my dress) and the consultant suggested that even if I don’t go with a crinoline to at least wear a regular slip to just below my knees. She said that while trying on the dress and just walking in the store you can’t really tell, but without it the dress will bunch between your legs.

I am wearing undies and a long line bra. I highly reccomend a long line. Mine is comfy, sucks me in and forces good posture!

The specifics of what you get depends a lot on your dress – can we see a picture?
