Your big day is nearing, and you are focusing all your time and effort into putting your beautiful best forward. You select your wedding gown after multiple trials, or even get one customised for yourself. You also invest considerable energy in picking the right accessories that go with it. But, what about your bridal lingerie? You sure want to present your most beautiful and sexy self to your partner, but you also need to be wary about whether it fits your gown right, and whether it is comfortable enough to wear for long hours. So here is quick tour of the different kind of lingerie that you need to pick for your wedding, and what needs to be worn with the gown that you have chosen.
• Bra – the bra that you select should support your bust well, offer a good shape, and also prevent it from sagging or spilling. Seamed bras can be worn with gowns made of thick fabrics. In case you wear a sheer or smooth fitted gown, opt for a seamless bra with padding. Pick bras with underwires only if you are comfortable wearing them, else you may end up with a constant feeling of pinching that can be extremely uncomfortable on a beautiful day as this. Also, halter neck and strapless gowns need respective bras for their styles. Stick on bras or invisible back bras are a great pick in the regard. You could also opt for the strapless bra if you wear an off-shoulder gown. Stick to light white, off-white or skin shades for the ceremony, as these blend in well with the gown that you wear. Reserve the bolder and sexier stuff for the night.
• Panties – your wedding panties, like the bras that you pick, need to keep your intimate areas, as well as your derriere in good company. They need to fit well, give you a good shape, and also not shown through your bridal wear. Classic panties can be worn along with gowns that are heavy and voluminous. You could also opt for knickers, boy shorts, or other underwear that are racy and adventurous with such gown styles. Bridal wear made from lightweight fabrics, or those that are smooth and body fitting need seamless panties under them. Thongs too are a good pick in this regard as they do not show panty lines through your bridal dress. Elastane blends often lie flatter than natural fibres, and also feel comfortable. Laces may sometime show through, so whenever you pick them, ensure that they are made with hi-tech construction that lets them lie flat on your skin.
• Shapewear – Some styles of bridal gowns tend to focus a lot on your curves and assets. Such garments need shape wear under them. There are many options in the market for shape wear that go with wedding gowns. Bustier, corset, or any kind of firming shapewear that smooth out bulges around your tummy, hips, and thighs are what you need. Ensure that they are not too constricting. Also look for materials that are stretchable, and which offer a smooth finish.
• Stockings, garters, and garter belts – wedding garters are an indispensable part of your wedding lingerie, but wearing sticking and hold-ups are completely a personal choice. These need to be added when you what to give a firm shape to your legs, and do not want to show off your skin directly under a gown. Gowns with high rise slit however may not need them. The leg wear that you pick should be as invisible as possible, and also look natural.
When selecting bridal underwear, be sure to try it on along with the bridal wear to see how they look and feel with your gown. Also, ensure that you pick ones of the right size, fit and colour, lest they support your body inadequately, make you uncomfortable, and also show through what you wear.
