THE WEDDING DRESS SHAPEWEAR GUIDE
So you’ve found your dream dress and decided shapewear would take it to the next level, but with so many shapes and styles, which one is best under your gown’s silhouette?
Although wearing shapewear on your wedding day certainly isn't mandatory, if you're looking for a little extra support, shape, and coverage, it may be the perfect solution for you!
We know it can be a bit overwhelming to find a garment that is completely undetectable and comfortable for your big day (no squeezing or pinching, please!), so we’ve curated a list categorized by your dress shape to compliment all body types and skin tones!
For a gown that hugs you in all the right places, we love a shapewear skirt with no straps to perfectly contour under any style gown. For those who have sleeves and prefer more structure, an open-bust gusset is another great option!

With an effortless flowing skirt and natural waistline, A-lines are always a flattering option for any body type! To accentuate the waist, we love a high-waisted brief that provides compression only where you need it!

A backless wedding gown is the perfect touch of sexiness a lot of our brides crave, but it can be difficult to find shapewear that is undetectable with a low back! That's why we love this option with convertible straps for all our back-baring brides!
No one wants to constantly adjust their under garments during their wedding day! Luckily there are amazing shapewear options that will contour you and stay put throughout the night!
