One of the biggest decisions a bride makes is her wedding dress. Another important decision is what she wears under it. There are many options—from everyday undergarments, shapewear or wedding night lingerie. Your comfort and confidence hinge on your choices. Read on to learn what works best with your dress style to find the best fit for you.
A strapless wedding dress obviously calls for strapless support. You can opt for a strapless bra, but if you want to avoid the discomfort and hassle of pulling it up throughout the night then consider your other options. Alternates include corsets, bustiers, longline bras and torsolettes which clinch to your waist and give support to your bust.
Plunge Neck Dress
For wedding dresses that have deep plunges, you can match a plunge bra or there is even plunge shapewear available in the market. Some wedding dress boutiques also offer sewn cups inside the dress.
Backless Or Low-Back Dress
These kinds of wedding dresses can be paired up with a low-back bra, plunge backless bra or adhesive cups. Convertible bras also work well with backless dresses as they can be easily converted according to your needs.
Fit & Flare/Mermaid Dress
Shapewear can best compliment this figure-hugging style. Shapewear comes in many styles for you to smooth and accentuate the areas you want. For slim fitting dresses and ones made of thinner material, opt to wear seamless underwear.
These dresses are generally slim fit and made up of thin material so choose undergarments which are seamless. The flare bottom gives you the freedom to wear a slip if you choose and any style of underwear. Remember to focus on comfort and shape when choosing your wedding day undergarments. Talk to gown professionals who can also offer their best advice. If the option you choose doesn’t double as your wedding night lingerie, be sure to invest in those items as well.
