Women are usually clueless about what they should wear to go try on wedding gowns.
Not the cute outfit they want to wear to go shop to shop in, but what they should wear underneath that will help the gowns (and you) look their best.
Let me introduce you to your best friend
I wish I had a dollar for every Bride that told me “oh, I’m like a size 2. I don’t need Spanx”.
Ya know what ladies, I don’t care if you’re a size 2 or a size 22, you need some sort of body slimmer. Especially if you are wearing a sleek, sexy sheath, mermaid or trumpet cut. It will smooth everything out and the fabric will sit well on your body. And yes, designer gowns are made with boning, cups and corsets inside, but most brides want to look smaller and Spanx will make you smaller.
If you don’t want to spend $100 on Spanx at Nordstrom you can get Assets at Target. Assets are actually made by Spanx so they are just as good, they are just $80 cheaper.
Who doesn’t like a deal when they can get one?
Secondly, you need a good bra.
Don’t wear this one.
I only put this on because I thought it was pretty. Leave this for the wedding night.
You are looking for function right now.
Wear your best strapless bra. Victoria’s Secret’s Body by Victoria strapless is my favorite, but whatever you have should work for now.
And hey, don’t be ashamed of a little false advertising. If you need a little lift or padding, go for it! You want to look your best.
Just please, leave this at home
You think I’m kidding?
I see more leopard bras than I would like to admit. Stick to white or flesh toned, even for just trying on gowns.
I’m going to leave you with this last bit of advice
Take a shower.
You will be doing me and yourself a favor.
But mostly me.
