As you can see – i need some serious spanx with my dress! It’s at the alterations right now being let out.. the 3 inches thats possible.
But i am still going to need spanx! Its pretty tight, and satin – so i dont want any bulge or lines visible if possible, of course.
What brand of spanx do you love?!!

spanx themselves ARE a brand. you mean, what brand of shapewear.
i haven’t been able to try actual spanx (pricey!) but i find that the cheap ones at walmart work just fine if i buy one size too small.

@rosworms: right right. shapewear.

I got a longline bra from David’s Bridal and my crinoline has a shaper built in to it. no bumps and you can’t see anything 🙂

Also- to help with this particular dress you might try a crioline for trumpet gowns. It really adds a wow factor at the bottom (thats what I did) and it helps to smooth out the gown fabric. I plan on doubling up with crinoline and shape-wear to be super “smooth”!

oh- I got my crinoline at DB… it was pretty inexpensive
