Friday afternoon, I got the call I’ve been waiting for: My dress is in! That’s right, after 4 months of waiting, she’s finally here! I have to go in within the next two weeks to try her on, pay my balance and set up my alterations and I am freaking pumped. Now it’s on to thinking about my underpinnings.
Thinking about bridal undies is weird. I mean, I want to look totally fabulous on my wedding day, but what girl doesn’t want a little help in the smoothing department, right?! There are definitely undergarments that will help with that…but they’re not exactly jaw-droppingly gorgeous either! Let’s take a look at some examples:
Yeah, I’m not too sure Dr. Groomy would love seeing those underneath my gown.
Victoria’s Secret offers a few more sexier options, though you can bet they won’t shape as well as Spanx. Behold:
Ah, now we’re getting a bit more sexy! Me likes the sort of old school glamour of the push-up cups…but I’m not exactly lacking in that department, so I don’t really need any pushing up. Let’s try again:
Here we go…this might work! Smooths the tummy, lifts the butt, and bra not included. I am thinking of having cups sewn into my dress as part of my alterations (I’ve already been quoted and they will be quite reasonable, thank goodness!), so this might be a perfect complement. I’m a bit afraid of the panty line, however…so my quest for the perfect undergarments shall continue.
