You’ve found the perfectwedding dress that will make you feel like a princess on your big day. Now, what are you going to wear under it? Your wedding lingerie may be invisible to all (except your lucky spouse), but it’s still got an important role to play in your wedding. The right bridal undergarments enhance the fit of your dress and show off the curves of your body while keeping you comfortable throughout the day.
The ideal wedding bra will depend on the cut and neckline of your dress. With so many different wedding dress styles available, it can be challenging to find the right bra to keep you supported without peeking through a V-neck or illusion back. In some cases, a dressmaker can sew padding directly into your dress, so you won’t need to purchase a separate piece. However, bustier brides may prefer a dedicated bra to assist with lifting and support.
Many wedding dresses feature lace sleeves or no sleeves at all. (Check out all our gorgeous strapless wedding dresses.) In this case, consider a strapless bra or a corset. If your flirty dress features a plunging neckline or shear back, you may want to consider backless adhesive bras. Some adhesive bras can also lift, giving you the perfect curves on your big day.
The unique features of your dress will dictate what panties will be best to wear under your dress. If you choose a ball gown or A-line silhouette with thick, wide skirts, you can pretty much slip on whatever underwear you want, including a special pair of bridal panties to tantalize your spouse after you retreat to your room.
If your dess is tighter around the rump, like a mermaid silhouette, or made with light, breezy fabric, you’ll want to avoid glaring panty lines by choosing a lace or barely-there thong. We recommend picking a skin-colored thong just so you won’t have to worry about your new mother-in-law catching a hint of those hot-pink skivvies under your dress.
Don’t forget about that other important item you should be sporting under your dress. Many traditional weddings feature the tossing of the garter. Don’t let all the single guys down! Choose a garter that catches your eye and reflects your personality. If you opt for a tight dress, consider a garter with thin material that lays flat against your skin.
After a long, exuberant ceremony, it’s time to take off with your lawfully wedded spouse. Enthrall your new life partner with daring bridal sleepwear. Consider this one more wedding day gift to your someone special, and enjoy the pleasure of knowing how sexy you’ll look as you and your spouse start the rest of your lives together.
