Wedding underwear - I need 'control' stuff, I think. Help!

I am a size 16 - 18, but hoping to be a bit smaller by June when I get married. My stomach is awful and I know I won't feel confident unless I'm wearing some sort of control underwear, but I haven't got a clue what I need or where to look.

Does anyone have any recommendations please? My dress is ivory and hopefully flattering (I ordered it online and it hasn't arrived yet) with a band under the breast and the rest of the dress sort of skims down from that. I hope that makes sense.

You need Spanx! The type will depend on your dress but I find other brands don't work as well. They can be tricky to pull on but I think comfortable and allow you to eat your dinner too.

That's my dress, if it arrives and fits me, otherwise it will be a mad panic to pick one up from BHS or similar.

What type of Spanx should I be looking for please?
