We highly recommend working with an experienced seamstress to ensure your wedding dress properly fits your body. A seamstress can also add bust cups to any of our styles for additional support. An experienced seamstress may also be able to tailor shapewear to match the style of your wedding dress.
Also the question is, how can I hide my lower belly pooch in my wedding dress? Undergarments. A bride can purchase elastic shapewear which she can put on underneath her dress to more evenly distribute belly fat across her midsection. She can purchase shapewear that slims her waist and sides but also thigh slimmers that will redistribute weight on the lower parts of her body.
Similarly, do most brides wear shapewear? Most modern brides choose to wear some form of shapewear-maybe a strapless bra or a smoothing undergarment-so that they feel supported, secure, and confident in their dream gown. A bride’s decision to wear shapewear isn’t just about feeling slim or “sucked in,” though.
Likewise, should I have cups sewn into my wedding dress? 1) “BUILT-IN” BRA CUPS – First, we usually recommend cups being sewn in your wedding dress for many of our gowns. If there is a low back, plunging deep V, or other design preventing a bra, cups sewn into the gown are a great solution! This also ensures your dress won’t move around at some point and show your bra.
Amazingly, how do you fix a wedding dress that is too big? If the dress is too big and not fitting your body how you want it to, still remember not to panic. Dafra recommends adding some bra cups to fill out the bust area if it’s too large in your chest area. You can also find a beautiful sash to cinch your waist if it’s too roomy at your midsection.

How do you pee in shapewear?
