i have know that I should get spanx or something else along those lines to keep my tummy under control but I can not find anything for the life of me. My dress has a lower back. I was hopefull that I would not need a bra but it looks like I need something to lift the girls. Is there any low back control slips out there? I would need to pick it up in the store since I am only two weeks out. i have never worn spanx before. Please help!

@jkd2012: My consultant today when I went dress shopping actually advised against spanx and bras (despite me being curvy and busty). She said dresses can have boning or shaping sort of fabrics added to them, as well as cups that will make it just work fabulously.
I would ask your seamstress to add harder cups to your dress. And having once cut myself out of spanx with scissors, I can say I absolutely wouldn’t want to spend my special day wearing them!

Thanks. I will see what they can do. Right now the dress does not look good with out something under it and it is to big. If the tummy looks like a pot belly now I know it will look horrible by the time the dress is pulled tight. Hopefully it will cost less to add something to the dress than buy something else.
PS You cut your self out. 🙂 That sounds like somehting i would do. I know the few times I tried on spanx it was horrible to get them on and off.
