I'm a 42DD and currently have a waist of 53". Being hypothyroid sucks. I have a wedding coming up in October and I have a very pretty dress that I'd like to wear but can't without a body sucker! Thank you!"
Amanda, Janetor here: As a fellow plus-sized glamazon, I fully understand the importance of shapewear under dresses and clingy clothes. Thank goodness, shapewear has come a long way from the heavy-duty girdles our grandmothers wear, and Spanx now makes plus-sized shapewear. I wasn't sure what kind of neckline your dress has, so I rounded up a variety for you. (PS - Most of these are also available in either black or nude hues.) Enjoy!!
1 - Spanx Slimplicity V-Neck Camisole ($50)
3 - Nude Tummy Control Cami ($22)
4 - Body Wrap Bodysuit with Underwire ($78)
5 - Spanx Hide & Sleek Slip-Suit ($88)
7 - Serenada 8142 Bodybriefer ($32-34)
8 - Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Camisole ($48)
