When selecting undergarments for your sheer, knit, or form-fitting wedding dress, be very, very careful. Put on your dress and stand in front of a three-way mirror. Try different mirrors in different lighting (remember what the camera flash did to Ellen Barkin€™s metal mesh top?). Get a second opinion. Then get another. Salesfolk don€™t count–your maiden auntie€™s doesn€™t either, bless her heart, anyway. Remember, most of what your guests will see of you during your entire ceremony is your backside. You want to be memorable on your wedding day, but not like THAT! An inexpensive body stocking can be had by purchasing a pair of queen-sized pantihose and stitching some nude satin ribbon straps. Cut the legs off an old pair of control-top pantihose. Voila! A naked tube top! Totally disappears, in a good way, under your sheer things. And while we€™re at it, you guys out there that want to wear white on your wedding day, too–unless it€™s very heavy fabric, and most rentals aren€™t, you can see right through your pants. Go to the mall€”I€™ll wait. Try on some white tuxedo pants. See what I mean? I know they make liners for women€™s slacks, but y€™all need some, too! Call better men€™s stores if the rental folks don€™t have them. OR, have someone who€™s handy with a sewing machine stitch some tubes of cotton fabric the diameter of the legs of some plain white boxer shorts (Joe Boxers do NOT work for this application). Slip stitch the tubes onto the legs of the boxer shorts. Cut to pants length. Simple and tres cheap! More about wedding attire, including bridesmaids’, later.
