Would You Say Yes to This Dress?

January 17, 2008 by SheFindsErin

I have a confession to make: even though I'd likely be voted "Least Likely to Get Hitched…Ever," I have a shameless addiction to Say Yes to the Dress, a TLC reality show that documents the trials and tribulations of Kleinfeld Bridal, the outrageously opulent wedding gown outpost in NYC. I'm so completely captivated by the day-to-day goings on at Kleinfeld that I sat through the entire holiday marathon—twice. The brides are picky, the salespeople cutthroat, and the gowns—for the most part—gorgeous.

But all my watching and re-watching tipped me off to a startling pattern: at least once an episode, a bride will fall head over heels for one of Pnina Tonai's corseted gowns with visible bandeau bras. Some of the skirts are drop waisted, some are decidedly deconstructed, and some are princess-worthy pouf-balls, but the tops remain the same lingerie-esque, see-through gut-suckers.

Which leads me to the question… huh? I mean, girls on Say Yes have gotten in fights over these dresses, but didn't Project Runway just deem "underwear as outerwear" a dead trend? I can see a little risque, rock 'n' roll appeal, I guess, but that only works for a few brides. Women spend millions every year trying to conceal their underwear, so why the sudden urge to expose?

My confusion as to this new trend isn't being helped by Katie Holmes, whose silver Mad Money premiere dress also features the exposed bandeau. Sure, it's not her wedding day, but she's in the spotlight and shamelessly flaunting her bra. So what's with these dresses with built-in underwear snafus? Are they hot (if you think so, Victoria's Secret has a white version you might be interested in) or not? Tell us your thoughts on this peculiar trend in the comments.
