Your wedding dress is only as good as what you wear under it. So before you head to your last fitting, check out your options. A good seamless panty may be all you need, but if you want extra support from pictures to party consider shapewear. There's something for every dress shape and good news: The newest batch is sexy and flattering like lingerie, so you won't be embarrassed to wear it on your big day.

Only seamless pantyhose will do for slinky dresses that show every line. The thick, "invisible-edge" waistband ensures there's no pinching and the compression fabric will hold everything in comfortably. Control Princess Shears, $36, Commando Tights
