So, I never made it to the garment stage but basically lived in pants and baggy clothes for the first 20 years of my life because I was so self conscious about my legs and body (yay conservative body-shaming upbringing).

For dresses, I know women who swear by little shorts under their skirts. In the summer I use a variation of these spanx-ish things under dresses and skirts. I buy a size up so it doesn't slim as much as just keep the thighs from rubbing. Also, if you're hard up you can just rub deodorant on your thighs , it's an ok short-term solution. =) BTW, they also make these things now almost like old-fashioned bloomers that do the same thing but are looser. I'll see if I can find a link.

I don't have a lot of recs for bras except what others have posted. VS bras are usually pretty comfy. Calvin Klein is pretty good too. I've heard great things about the comfort of maternity/nursing bras even for women who aren't nursing, since they're basically made to be functional and comfortable. And I'll plug abrathatfits since having a well-fitting bra can help a lot in the comfort department--I've certainly noticed a difference.

Good luck! Welcome to the wide wonderful world of postmo underwear!

Edit: Found the bloomer things, apparently they are called "pettipants". But hey, they are an option and are not religiously-affiliated underwear!

The corset looks really good! Is this totally finished? I have some construction advice if you'd like, if not ignore it.

It looks like you have some really noticeable puckering on the side seam on the satin skirt, it might be the tension on your machine or the type of thread you used. If the dress is 2 separate pieces then it should be easy to pick that seam out and redo it. Also, the skirt has too much fullness at the waist/hips where it meets the bottom of the corset. It's gathering and adding a lot of fullness. It would be more flattering take in the skirt at the top to make it more of an "A" shape, and then wear a slip underneath with some tulle at the bottom to give it some fullness at the bottom. This would show off the nice detail you added to the hemline. This slip is kind of what I'm talking about. You could easily make one for pretty cheap with more or less fullness to your taste.

I think you've done a great job and you'll feel really beautiful and proud on your wedding day knowing you've made a one of a kind dress! Making a few changes will make your dress will make it look really professional. Whatever you decide, good job! That's a TON of work and it looks great!

u/The_Cat_Mom · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

I hear that so much- the purchasing from a charity organization and just settling a bit for whatever fits and looks nice. I really do love your dress, though, and I think once it's fitted you will feel much better about it. The keyhole back is SO romantic and I love the way it flares out at the bottom! Another bride here had a similar dress and got a crinoline like this that seemed to make a world of difference in the shape.

I think the dress is quite lovely and is actually very flattering on your curves, and I adore the buttons on the back. So beautiful!

u/Warwicky · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Oooh, that dress is beautiful, congrats on finding the one! I ordered this one from a maker in Kentucky http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000J2PGKI/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
My dress is a ballgown so you probably wouldn't need something this large but it is perfect for what I needed and the hoops are adjustable. Also, the top is just a drawstring so it really does fit most sizes. I am a 16 and it fit all the way around me. I was really pleased with the purchase. I would avoid anything from overseas if you could help it. Good Luck!

u/QuitUsingLeYouCunt · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Mermaid slips are totally a thing, that might add a little poof if that's what you're interested in. Empire Bridal may be able to help--I don't know if they sell to the public, but your seamstress may be able to buy one of them wholesale.

However, if you're not looking for poof, I'd say to just snag a full length slip like this or this in white or beige. They are so light you probably won't even notice you're wearing one. They won't cause as much of a line as the actual mermaid slip from Empire, and you can probably just pull it up higher if it does.

It would probably be best to be safe rather than sorry, and $20 or $30 bucks is a pretty good price for peace of mind! :>

Let me know if you have any other questions!

u/Majestic_Ex · 2 pointsr/crossdressing

Greetings, greetings and welcome to this post about a self-birthday gift and how I need lot of help with sizes!

Please, bear with me with the (probably) long post. The introduction is that I'm looking for something that will fits me nice but also feel femenine. I've been orbitating around a "rockabilly look" for a while, because these dresses are amazing, and also a good excuse to get some proper heels.

So, my checkout should be:

  • The dress (d'uh).
  • Petticoat.
  • A (6-suspenders) garter belt. (Already got the stockings).
  • Heels.

    I'll go through Amazon because prices are low, nondescript packaging and free returns, but if there's an alternative with the same qualities, please post it here.

    Now, first chapter: The dress.

    I'm looking into this but I have a doubt on sizing: I have belly and don't have boobs (d'uh), for what I'm reading and measuring, my (flat) chest is a at 98cm's (XL Size), while my (fat) belly is at 100m (XXXL size). The fabric seems to be a bit elastic, so I have some room here to work with. Which would you suggest? Maybe look into something different? Wait until I lose a bit of weight? Going with the medium and fill the chest with some padding?

    Second chapter, the petticoat:

    I've more or less found one that I could use, altough this also looks good. My doubt is if both are of the same lenght and the first one is made to be wore above the waistline where the second one is made to be wore below it, or if I'm mixing things up.

    Third chapter, the heels:

    I'm looking into these bad boys. The comments talk about looking at the sizing table ("longitud del talón a la punta", "length from heel to toe") which is more or less 25cm (which would put me between 40 and 41.

    Some of the shoes have an extra sizing table which points that if you have a wide feet, order half a size up. How do I know about this? I'm thinking on getting the 41,as it seems it comes with some padding, but I have no real experience on what a "heel" feels when actually fits.

    Also, I've mispelled "heel" as "hell" twice, lol.

    Fourth chapter, the garter:

    The garter belt comes again with belly problems. Link. I'm thinking on getting the XL, as it fits my hips, but not my waist. Would you advice to go for it? Can I increase the sizing on the waist somehow?


    P.S. I'm not a native english speaker and I'm actually impressed of my vocabulary for clothing related stuff, wow.

Coming back with that list


THIN LAYERS - I always wear a long slip under my dresses in the winter, I have the following:
Longer beige good for midi dress/skirts

shorter, black and grey, good for knee length

I also have a large collection of Uniqlo Heattech tank tops, scoop neck tee's and turtlenecks in different colours. The last one is for work, but the other two are game changers in adding warmth under stuff. The Heattech leggings don't work for me, as I have 45" hips.

I buy Memoi Sweater tights - I have 6 pairs in 4 colours that I rotate through and they've held up for 3 years for me (cold wash, hang dry).

I have several undersummer shorts (thigh chafe is a thing for me). They are NOT cheap, but I find them super comfortable, no matter the temperature, hot or cold.

PETTICOATS. I buy mine from Hell bunny - I don't bother ordering them online anymore, because the customs is stupid in Canada, so I wait until my local gothy store has the colours I want. I have white, red, hot pink, black, pale pink and purple petticoats. I think I want a yellow one and I'll be set.

Last are fleece lined leggings - I buy mine from costco, but they're kinda meh.



Wearing knee high boots makes a big difference, for a couple reasons - 1) extra layer on the leg, 2) You can hide any manner of extra socks under the boots, even if they don't match your outfit - so you scored a sweet deal on blue/orange technical wool socks? No problem, the boots hide them.

I have a wide calf, so I stick to Naturalizer's Jerri boots or the domenique's from Soft Moc (I don't know if they're still available, but they've got a fuzzy lining and they're SO WARM)


Most of my warm dresses are

- jersey knit dresses from Eshakti, with elbow length sleeves ( I own these ones: 1, 2, plus a couple others that are out of stock )

-two Stop Staring dresses I got from ModCloth sales (Plus a Prim Class Hero skirt)

- a bunch of Lindybop Audrey dresses (they pair really well with sweaters/cardis and petticoats. (I really like the audrey dresses because they can swing very vintage pinup or very office appropriate depending on your accessories). They're super durable too. I've worn them with a blazer and sombre belt to interviews and with petticoats and mary janes to parties.

a couple Micheline Pitt skirts - They're lined and/or heavy!

I also want to shout out to the XiaoLiZi etsy store - they do wool dresses, and while I haven't been able to sink money into them, a couple of my friends have and rave about them.


So when I get dressed for the day during fall/ winter, I'm usually putting on underwear, bra then sweater tights, undersummer shorts, and full length slip, then extra socks (usually stolen from my husband), THEN my dress and (if situationally appropriate) a petticoat then a cardigan/sweater. I also have a knee length skirted wool coat (London Fog, bought from The Bay) That'll usually last me down to -10 C ish. If it's colder than that, I'm wearing wool pants and leggings or my wool long underwear and jeans.

u/nervous_lobster · 3 pointsr/Hijabis

Hi! I'm not Muslim, but I am a modest dresser, and I thought that I might chime in.

One of the best things I've ever found is a half-tee. It looks like they might ship to you? The long sleeve and long sleeved turtleneck ones are so awesome, and they literally opened up a new world of clothing for me.

For the maxi dresses with slits, I typically wear leggings with them, but a pair of lightweight, loose pants could also be worn underneath. Or you could sew them shut? OR add a full slip underneath to cover your legs?

I always put a cardigan over anything that doesn't have sleeves. Lots of people like casual blazers for a more structured look.

Between leggings, cardigans, and half-tees, and slips, I find that I can make pretty much any mainstream item work.

My favorite outfits are: loose trousers and linen or cotton tunics, maxi dresses with a half-tee or cardigan to cover my arms, long flowing skirts with a tucked in (slightly) fitted shirt.

I am pretty sure it is from Amazon, if anyone reading wants one! Source: I wore the same one in my wedding rehearsal ☺

u/Deja_thoris · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

Not sure of your wedding colors - but the style of your original dress would lend itself really well to a pink (or whatever color), frilly, petticoat to help you get that glamorous touch you are longing for, without breaking the budget.

u/AnnaCvV · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

I definitely agree with you about the fabric. I found this photo of your inspiration dress, and it makes the fabric look much lighter than the fabric the seamstress used. It almost looks like a silk organza.

I think the stiffness and heaviness of the skirt fabric is what is making it look like it's missing the mark a little. Also, maybe the pleats could be made deeper for more fullness? I do think that a petticoat would definitely help, but not a full hoop skirt. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IUSIYEM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/here_pretty_kitty · 1 pointr/weddingswap

Hi! I'm getting married June 8 and will have one available after that - I could get it to you in early July post-honeymoon. I actually got mine off Amazon though for like $30 if that's easier for you: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ZPMV1JC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


I have the small/medium size. Would you like to buy from me if this works for your timeline?


(I also tried on this one from Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EH3UV8Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It has a hoop so is wider at the bottom than the one I ended up keeping).

u/Serenityfalcon · 3 pointsr/BodyAcceptance

#relate! I am in the same shoes, I hate it when I can hear my thighs rubbing together- and I have a perfectly healthy BMI!
I will say that pettipants and sliders have saved me a lot of stress when it comes to wearing skirts! It's like wearing shorts under them and a lot of them are really light and airy, and they keep your thighs from chaffing! Here is a link to a pair of pettipants for reference :)

u/cealion · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

If you're wearing knitwear, I'm assuming you don't want the lace ones but rather practical ones. Besides those at JC Penney, I found similar but tighter ones at Free People that don't necessarily seem to be shapewear, and also some good options on Amazon.

u/choppedgreenchili · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

No problem! I see you wrote in another comment that it's a ballgown. In that case, look into big slips with hoops like this or this.

You can put them on and the hoop will essentially hold the dress up for you instead of you dragging it all night. Bonus is they're pretty cheap and some hold the layers away from your legs which can help cool you.

u/mokoroko · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've been meaning to buy a pair of tap pants/silk boxers for years now, and am finally getting around to it after buying a summer dress that is definitely too short for my normal slips. I prefer a slightly looser fit, as boy shorts tend to ride up on me and/or give me sausage legs. These and these are well reviewed on Amazon and seem like what I'm looking for. There are also more boxer-looking styles available also.

u/LeftMySoulAtHome · 2 pointsr/Wishlist

That is a gorgeous dress, first of all. What if you wore a petticoat like this? You could get a colored one and put a ribbon/fabric sign on it like a trophy would be engraved.

u/kesceca · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Does anyone have any recommendations for a pair of short-length slip short to wear under loose pants? I have a pair similar to these that are unfortunately see-through and with a slit on the sides that comes up quite high. I need something that is slightly higher than mid-thigh and doesn't go up further than my belly button. Was looking at the Ilusion but wondering if they would bunch up too much. Or the Liang Rou. I saw jockeys being the recommend on this sub but they seem to be way too long. I'm in Canada as well. Thanks for the input!

u/jay942 · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning


I got this one! Definitely not super fancy, but got the job done. I'm wearing a dress that lays pretty flat without it, and it gives it some poof. You can check my post history for pictures :)

u/april731 · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

I'm using the one that my sister wore in her wedding, so I'm not exactly sure. I think it might be the one that DB sells. (I wouldn't have bought the $80 one from them if I was buying now. If you go the Amazon route, just make sure you get one that has free returns like this. It wouldn't hurt to try it on with your dress before buying something more expensive.)

u/catpower7 · 3 pointsr/fashionwomens35

This doesn't address the "what goes best with navy?" issue, but I just want to add [this slip] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IK5BQSC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1&psc=1) as a solution for extra coverage under any dress that shows too much cleavage. I prefer this over a camisole because it lays smoothly and I don't have to keep tugging it into place, and you can wear it two ways for a straight or v-neck.

u/silly__milly · 11 pointsr/weddingplanning

I bought this one from amazon and love it. It makes it sooo much easier to walk and it lifts the dress up a bit so I didn't have to get it hemmed. The rings in it are adjustable so if you don't want it quite so full you can lessen it.

Here's how my dress looks with and without it. Sorry I don't have one from the side. Also the one with it from the back looks a little weird where the slip stops but that's because I'm standing up on the pedestal. It looked fine when I was on the floor, I just didn't get a picture.

u/Bubsilla · 16 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I bought this sweet hoops skirt to wear under my wedding dress. I've been wearing it around my house pretending to be Scarlett O'Hara.

u/SapphireLeprechaun · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

I got this one because I have a mermaid style dress and I absolutely cannot stand having fabric wrap around my legs (also lets more air in around the legs... August wedding). It qualified for prime shipping when I bought mine.

u/plaintastic · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

I got a fishtail mermaid two hoop skirt from Amazon too! Initial thoughts are it makes it SO much easier to walk in.


Smelled kinda funky in the package, but it wasn’t too bad. I removed the bottom most hoop and it’s just fine. my dress is very voluminous with the petticoat! Two hoops made it very poofy! One made it not as poofy but still allowed me space to walk.

I’m planning on bringing it to the seamstress to see what it looks at full length.
