Opaque tights with red lace dress?

I've bought the dress below for a wedding. It makes me feel so happy.

I want to dance lots at the wedding but I'm worried that as it has a slightly shorter skirt than I would normally wear (it comes up higher on me than the model) I will feel more comfortable wearing black opaque tights when dancing etc.

But I think this is dress which really requires nude tights. Thought I'd double check.

It's a great dress. Black tights aren't going to work with it, there are 'nude' opaque tights about, if that's any use. Maybe bit pricey but possibly worth a try, depending on your skin tone.

I'd wear Spanx so if the dress is a bit floaty as you dance, at least no one can see your matching lacy knickers!

Actually I think black might work too, especially if you have black accessories. Have you tried them on with it yet? Put one leg in each colour. You'll know as soon as you see it.

Any dress that makes you feel so happy should be worn regularly smile Enjoy.

Thank you all so much!!

Great idea about trying the one leg each - I shall do that and definitely Spanx up! I can't wait!

I do hope Burnished is right!

I say nude as the dress as a nude background behind the lace detail.
