It depends where you go- I normally brought/wore a strapless.
Some places supply you with all the stuff you need and others dont.
I liked trying on the dresses without shoes best but some places make you wear them.

Every dress shop I went to gave me a strapless bra and a slip. And the also have shoes if you want to see what it would look like with some height.
I wouldn’t worry to much about this and just wear whatever you are comfortable in. As long as you wear a strapless bra then you should be fine and if you don’t have one just pull down the straps on a regular bra.

I do not like the idea of sharing undergarmets with strangers so I wore a strapless bra and some sort of non-thong. I didn’t wear the SPANX until my actual fitting because that was when I wanted to see the dress as it will be on the day. I really don’t think color will matter for just trying on but for some people, SPANX makes the difference of will I buy that dress or not. It sounds like you don’t have an undergarmet must have so you should be fine with your plan.

Thanks guys, you were all really helpful!
In the end it was great, the lady left me in the changing room to step into the dresses then just came in to button/fasten me up. Didn’t really matter what I was wearing!
Thanks again for all your advice, it definitely helped me feel less nervous today.
