Every bride wants to look and feel a million dollars on their wedding day. While your wedding dress and accessories play vital roles in making you a real life princess, good underwear is the foundation that holds your look together. The perfect bridal lingerie will make you look beautiful from the inside out, but that doesn’t mean you should dig out those super supportive granny pants just yet! There are many bridal lingerie options that will give you the support you need to carry off that wedding look, keep you comfortable all day long and ensure a super sexy look that won’t go unmissed by your new husband.
In this blog post, we reveal our top tips for choosing bridal undies that leave you feeling beautiful, confident and flawless.
Remember comfort is key
According to a recent study, 80% of women in the UK are wearing the wrong bra size. What better time to realise ultimate comfort from your underwear than on your wedding day? Before you begin your quest for the perfect bridal lingerie, book in for a professional fitting. Most high street shops provide measurement and fitting for free, meaning there’s no excuse not to get the right size and fit for your big day.
By feeling truly comfortable on your wedding day, you’ll have more stamina and confidence. Whether you’re opting for a big, ball gown style or an edgy wedding dress with pockets, comfort begins with the undies you wear.
Work with, not against, your body shape
Your body shape will dictate the most flattering and comfortable bridal lingerie designs so keep this in mind when shopping for your wedding undies. There is a vast range of designs, each of which offers a fitting option for every body type imaginable. Problem tummy areas needn’t be an issue either, as Brides Magazine details:
“Thankfully, there are lots of options to help disguise and draw attention away from your middle section. Waist cinchers, basques, corsets and shapewear all work wonders! Although the idea of shapewear often conjures up thoughts of shrivelled nude cycling shorts, don’t be put off: it’s come a long, long way in the past decade.”
Create a sleek silhouette
Once you’ve found the size you need and the style you want, don’t just pack it away for your wedding day. Try your choice of lingerie on with your dress to ensure it creates the sleek silhouette you require. Most brides opt for strapless, backless or smooth designs without fussy materials like lace to ensure their lingerie complements their wedding dress choice. Smoother underwear is a great option, whatever your wedding dress style. Smooth designs hug your curves whilst eliminating the lines and creases that are visible with many wedding dress designs.
Choose the perfect colour
Brides who are opting for the traditional white wedding gown will want to go down the same avenue with their bridal lingerie too.
As you may have discovered during the wedding dress shopping experience however, there are many (many) shades of white to choose from. The same is true when selecting bridal lingerie. Don’t just match your lingerie colour with your dress colour, use your skin tone to find the best shade of white for you. Bright white tends to look better with darker skin tones, and creamier tones suit fairer brides.
