EXACTLY what to wear when you're wedding dress shopping!
Yes, this matters! Trust me!
by Kim Fusaro
As I mentioned in Friday's Week in Review, this dress would be particularly excellent to wear when you're wedding dress shopping. I know it feels silly to put a lot of thought into your shopping outfit, but trust me. During a long (long, long, long) day of shopping, you'll be happier if properly outfitted. So here's EXACTLY what to wear.
To the right: Tommy Hilfiger Three-Quarter Sleeve Chambray Dress from Macy's, $59.99.
1) A dress without a lot of bells and whistles. You'll probably shop multiple boutiques, so having a dress you can get in and out of with minimal assistance will help speed things up.
2) Tights. You won't be able to wrestle your way into every wedding dress on your own, which means you'll need someone in the dressing room with you. This might be your mom or your maid of honor or a sales assistant—or all of the above, if it's one of those HUGE dressing rooms. Tights will give you at least SOME sense of modesty. And hey, if they suck in your tummy a little, it's only going to make the dresses look better! (Don't worry. You won't be able to see the tights through the dresses!)

3) A strapless bra. This will also help you maintain a little modesty, even if you don't plan on wearing a bra on your wedding day. But wedding dresses generally look better with a bra, IMO, unless you're very small-chested.
4) Flats. If you're wearing heels on your wedding day, definitely pack a pair. (Or take your chances on the boutique's samples. Ick.) But don't schlep from store to store in stilettos. Save your feet—and your stamina—by wearing flats between try-ons.
