Let's get intimate(s) for a minute. Looking your best in your wedding dress may require some help from corsetry, a bodysuit—or even some good-old Spanx. And, while your soon-to-be husband may love you no matter what you wear, there is still a definite desire to avoid the dreaded Bridget Jones's Diary granny-panties embarrassment on your wedding night.
Finding something that contours, sucks you in, nips your frame in all the right places, but is still sexy yet sophisticated is no easy task. So, luckily, we're here to help: We found six pieces of shapewear that you'll be just as happy to show off as a lace lingerie set.

These high-waisted (thong) briefs may look granny at first glance, but on the body, they contour and shape to give off a retro, Betty Boop vibe.
