Underneath It All (not the No Doubt song)

I've been wanting to write this blog post for awhile now because it was a constant struggle for me and I've recently figured out the best solution for it. Listen up.

You know when you're out shopping, especially this time of year, when those glorious little white sundresses come out to play. I'm a sucker for baby doll dresses in white, paired with sandals or ankle books Ahhhhhhh! It's definitely a thing of mine. But my biggest struggle was trying it on and going "Yep, you can see RIGHT through this." and I never buy them. Unless you wear a bathing suit underneath and head to the beach or the pool, everyone's gonna see your Tuesday knickers and that nude bra you try so hard to camouflage into your skin. But it doesn't work, it's there, and I feel it ruins the dress. I found the best solution that will literally work for everyone... not even kidding. 

Now... I've purchased slips, nude mini skirts and dress slips (which do work!) but when you have a booty like mine, it just rides up when I walk and then everyone gets a free show by the end of the sidewalk. I was constantly pulling it down and adjusting myself that it wasn't worth it anymore. 

And then I found these babies on Forever 21...

Now here's the best part about these rompers... they are $6.90 EACH. CHYEAH.

They were listed under the shapewear section, but I don't believe they are thick enough material to be compared to something like Spanx where you can't breath but look bangin'. It held me in and slimmed me out a bit, but I wouldn't rely on this for full shapewear, just my two cents. BUT, they did make it possible for me to stock up on white dresses, and I even bought the black one to wear under black lace. Until now I've been wearing shorts and a tank top under my lace dresses and now it's so easy. Ugh, life saved.

There is one con though, I have to admit. God only knows I want to rip my hair out when I have to go to the restroom with these on, especially under a dress. That's the only downside. I stand there and go, "Shit.." and I basically have to either get my straps off underneath the dress or strip down entirely. It's a process, but beauty is pain.

I will be dehydrated but god damnit I'll look cute doing it!
