    i'm worried about what i'm going to wear under my dress.

    my dress is quite floaty, and a fair bit see through in the wrong light. but as it has a low back i can't wear a bra. the back scoops about 3 or 4 inches below where my bra sprap would lie. plus as the dress is see through'ish' i've tried seamless pants, and you can still see them.

    panic a little and 22 days to go!!!!!!!!

    thanks, the bra bit is not a problem, but the dress if thin and through the wrong light u can see everything. i'm thinking of buying a maxi slip and butchering it, then sewing it into my dress.

    I dont have a pic, but will try and get one

    Would just a skirt slip be suitable or is it fairly sheer up top too? M&S so about 4 or 5 different length slips like that I think - the longer ones have splits up the seam else you end up walking like a penguin!

    My dress was low backed and I couldn't wear a bra with it either. I didn't want a VPL so I got these from Spanx in a nude colour - they were fab and you couldn't see any lines at all :rolleyes:

    Spanx Pants

    Here's some pics of front and back:
