What underwear should I wear with my wedding dress ?
A question we are asked by all of our brides. Well I’m going to give you a few tips to help you look amazing. The under garments are vital in making your wedding dress look the best it possibly can. What you need to keep in mind is that wearing the wrong underwear can destroy the look of your wedding dress.
So let’s get started ladies. We’re going to look at comfy,practical and stunningly sexy.
You need to figure out your underwear situation by the time you have your fittings. This is so we can fit your gown around them to guarantee the best fit.
With so many options it can be hard to choose. Are you going to opt for a bra or corset, thong or spanx, suspenders and garter? The choices are endless. But it’s a big choice to make. You need to be comfortable and feel good at the same time. So sometimes, practicality can over rule sexiness.
If you’re wearing a full princess A-Line wedding dress you can pretty much pull off whatever you like. Having that room underneath gives you more options to explore. You can go for the full sexy look of a corset, suspenders and some sexy panties.
Or you can stick to your comfy ‘hold you in’ pants. If you choose a more comfortable option, you can always pick your more daring eye popping choices to change into later on. And don’t be embarrassed, if it holds you in to ensure the best look then it’s worth it. Why not make fun out of it. Remember confidence is the most beautiful part about you. If you feel confident in yourself it will beam through for others to see on the big
Now for more fitted styles like your fish tales, drop waist and lighter chiffon fabric wedding dresses, you may want to feel more secure that there are no lumps or bumps on show. If this is the case and you have a light fabric wedding dress you should opt for your shape wear. However if you still want something more delicate looking then lace isn’t out of the question. As long as you go for a smooth lace you should be safe. John Lewis and House of Fraser have some gorgeous soft lace underwear that would not be visible through your wedding dress. Now if the wedding dress is a thicker satin or heavy tulle or silk fabric you can try something like these styles to flatten your tummy but still look sexy.
These girdles and corsets hold you in while still looking attractive to your husband later on
Gowns that are strapless will need to have a strapless bra worn with them or at least many brides think. So is this correct???? Noooo!!!! There is another option. Bust cups!!! These are becoming more and more popular for our girls. No hassle of having to find something that won’t show through your gown. With your bust cups all you need is your lower garments. We offer this as an extra service at all our fittings as will most bridal shops. They are great for low plunge necklines or backless dresses and are extremely comfortable.
Finally let’s talk bums! Do you want pictures with a derrière like Pippa Middleton’ but need a little help. Look no further than this……..Spanx!!! Simplicity butt boosting shorts. These may be difficult to hide the seams if your wedding dress is tight so you could opt for the knicker styles. Love my Bubbles
ship to the UK or you can look closer to home at Asda! Yes u read right Asda now have padded knickers and for just £6!!! These may be worth a try to give that booty a slight boost.
And make sure you don’t forget your garter. We stock them in store at Lisa’s Bridalwear so you can always visit us and check out our stock. They could have that blue ribbon for your part in the tradition, something old, something new, something borrowed and something BLUE!
So there you have it, a number of choices to make you look your utter best on your special day. I hope this has given you some insight and help to what’s on offer out there for you ladies.
Lots of love Kyla xxxxxx
