What To Wear Under The Season's Trickiest Dresses

Congratulations — you've found your dream dress for the upcoming party season! Now comes the bummer... what the eff do you wear under it? While we'd all like to look like we were born with our dresses on, panty lines, exposed bras, and our own protruding bits and bumps are always insistent on making their own debuts. That's why we're particularly grateful for the fine people out there creating shapewear and underthings that manage to help our bodies defy gravity, HD cameras, and that extra (three) helpings of pasta from the night before. So, arm yourself with the hardest-working underwear we could find: You and your dress deserve it!
