Undergarments

Hi Everyone! I know there has been some talk around here about undergarments\corsets\spanx and what to wear under your gown. My dress is:

and i would like to get a corset and also wear some spanx for my bottoms! But i'm not sure where to start with the corset.. I saw a bunch online at DB but when i went in the store it didnt seem like they had any. Do they hide them in the back?? Also, i saw someone mentioned fredericks..Are they reliable\size appropriate? I would rather go somewhere and try it on so i can see if it fits\looks good on me. Help!

thanks :)

Re: Undergarments

  • If it's an actual corset back, you don't need a corset at all.  In fact, you may not need anything under it, though I'd try it on and see.  If it's purely decorative, I would see if you can borrow one to try on with the dress.  Depending on how the dress fits, you may not need one.

  • Thanks, Dubird! It is a corset so a double corset wouldnt actually make sense now that i think about it...I should probably do something like this from DB:

    and spanx also.
    That might work best!

  • I would honestly try it on with nothing else under it.  If it's lined and an actual corset tie, adding anything would add bulk and just make you warmer.  I get that you might not be comfortable with nothing on under it, but don't worry about adding a heavy/boned/wired shaping thing under it.  I honestly think you'd be more comfortable without.

  • They make "high waisted" spanx, this is what I plan on wearing.  They go from mid thigh to just above the last rib or so.  the keep everything looking sleek and they stay in place no matter what.

  • hmmm i'm going to look into that! thanks!
  • My dress is a corset back and I tried everything on under it, but I think I am just going to go braless...and I have Big boobies (38DDD) with the corset back it holds everthing in really well..Oh and spanks on bottom.
