Forget crash diets and excessive exercise, Spanx provides the answer to looking your slimmest on your wedding day. The pioneers of shapewear, Spanx create fantastic body shapers which miraculously suck everything in and give you the sleek, slim silhouette that you're looking for, without restricting you. Their Haute Contour range is sexy as well as effective, but our ultimate favourite products are the Higher Power pants (pictured) and the Slim Cognito bodysuit, both of which give you maximum control and ensure that you'll look your best from every angle.
