Has anyone work Spanx or control underwear under their wedding dress or similar gown? My dress is very fitted all the way down and I want something to control my tummy a bit but I'm worried where the waistband is will show through the dress like a ridge IYKWIM?
Yes I wore them and they were absolutely fine, no seams or rolling down. I had a spare pair of pants in my bag to change into later in case they were uncomfortable but totally forgot about it. I didn't have the high ones as my dress had a low back but imy sure they would be great
Not under my wedding dress which i made sure i could comfortably eat my dinner in but for dresses generally i wear a holdy in slip to get a nicer line without bulges or breathing difficulties, spanx have also caused me heartburn at weddings so never again
I wore the seamless spanx under my wedding dress - it was a vintage style satin sort of nightdress style so very clingy, and needed seam free. There was no way I could have worn the scaffolding ones, but depends what your dress is like. I had no worries peeing in them, but my concern was more about being seam free than significant compression, if that makes sense?!
I wore shape wear under my wedding dress, I can't remember the brand but it was a strapless body suit, with cycling short sort of legs and it was crotchless to avoid the toiled issues . Crotchless shapewear is quite common. It was comfortable and gave a really nice clean line under my dress which was quite floaty.
