Wedding day wedding dilemmas – To Spanx or not to Spanx…..?
To Spanx or not to Spanx on your wedding day….?
What will it be, bride to be? You know: that all-important question of what to wear beneath your beautiful gown. Will it be lacy undergarments, refined, elegant, sexy and seductive? Or will it be….Spanx?
It’s a question many a bride to-be has to contemplate, albeit reluctantly. She wants to look streamlined, and appear bulge-free and she wants all her bits to fit perfectly within the unforgiving seams of the dream dress. And if the bride is feeling self-conscious about her lady-lumps, then popping on some Spanx may be just the ticket to feeling great on the Day.
More and more brides are investing in a pair of Spanx for their big day, and celebrities such Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian swear by them, with Kim proclaiming “Spanx are my best friend!” A properly fitting pair of Spanx will literally take pounds off your silhouette and minimise what we ladies call the “problem areas,” especially in the hips, thighs and tummy. Spanx has been doing this since 1998.
But what is a bride to do once the last of the wedding guests have left and the beaming couple take themselves to the wedding night bedchamber? Does the bride disclose to her handsome beau that she is strapped into latex? How does she strip off, do a dance and show that she is a confident newly minted Mrs without the hang-ups of her body image? That is, how to quickly get rid of that new best friend forever. To lose the Spanx, before your eagerly awaiting Mr even notices?
Here’s the trick: It’s a bride’s prerogative to steal away to the bathroom, take ten minutes out for a refresh and to powder her nose. Take that time for yourself. Hand your new husband a cold drink and tell him to hold on tight; you’ll be right back! Shimmy out of your Spanx, slip into your dreamy, floaty, lacy smalls, apply a smack of lip-gloss and then re-emerge from the bathroom and to a face that screams “I adore you, you gorgeous woman!!!”
And your husband is correct: you are beautiful; every square inch of you. What wearing Spanx will do is give your confidence a boost (while sucking in that tummy!), serving a perfectly respectable purpose, as any best friend should do.
