Lingerie help! *Edit*

This is my dress 
http://www.bestbridalprices.com/allure-wedding-dresses-style-8809-p-75215.html

On Tuesday I am going to back to the bridal salon with my dress and shoes so they can messure for the bustle and I will leave it there to be clean and steamed. They told me to bring undergarmets. So I want to purchase the undergarmets to wear with my dress.

So my question is should I purchase something like this

clicky

or a strapless bra with this body shaper

clicky 


The lady stated I didn't need to wear a bra because of how my dress is made. I do think I need to purchase something that will give me extra control for my sides and my tummy.  I want to get this tomorrow so I can have it to try it on with my dress on Tusday.
 
Any suggestions?

  • The second link wasn't a strapless bra and the first I think might not be low enough to accommodate the sweetheart of the dress.

    BTW, I am also an allure bride!

    Hey Allure bride sister! lol.   I love the Allure! What dress do you have?  Well I edited my post.  The second picture was of a body shaper that I was stating I could wear that with a strapless bra.  I get what your saying about the first pictrure may not be low enough, but you think something similar would work?  I know since my dress is a corset type lace up it will make everything tight.  I am just wondering if I need something else too.

  • Because it's corset I would say you almost wouldnt need a bra type lingerie underneath. for the bottom i've seen some mermaid shapers/slips floating around.

    You can google mermaid slip too and find some.
