Finding the right underwear for your wedding day is just as important as finding the perfect dress! The right lingerie will give you the structure and support you need beneath your dress, and leave you feeling beautiful and confident on your special day.
Follow our top tips below and you won’t go wrong.
Purchase after you’ve picked your dress
Get your dress sorted first, and then you’ll have a good idea of the kind of underwear you’re looking for. Always take a few options with you to your dress fitting to ensure your lingerie works seamlessly with your dress.
Don’t buy too early if you know your weight is likely to change
Try to hold off buying your underwear too soon before the big day if you’re hoping to lose a bit of weight before then. You want to make sure it fits you like a glove and not only supports you but feels comfortable to wear too. (But remember to give enough time for the delivery if you are buying them online)
To bra or not to bra?
If your dress has a fitted boned bodice you might decide not to wear a bra, having said that – the larger your bust is the more you should opt to wear a bra regardless of your dress design. It’s your lingerie that should be providing you with support, not your dress.
You don’t have to stick to white or ivory!
Most brides tend to opt for white, ivory or nude lingerie but you don’t have to play it safe. You could match to the colour of your bridesmaids dresses (provided it doesn’t show through), or go for a pretty pastel colour for a more romantic look.
Shapewear can give you a confidence boost
If you’re opting for a slinky, figure hugging dress then shapewear will help to give you a beautiful, streamlined silhouette. This will also help you to feel more confident and empowered on the day; and remember, you can always have a sexier option to change into later!
