Bras. It is the leading piece of lingerie and the remaining play supporting roles. You need a bra that keeps you comfortable during dining, dancing and posing with your relatives.Begin by choosing your bra, you need one that has the right support, your favorite brand may have a bra to suit. You can choose anything from nipple covers for maximum exposure, invisible bras, and stick-on bras, strapless, push-ups through to bustier and corsets and full Body Shapes.

Regardless of which type of bra you choose buy under wire if you are full-busted or full-figured. If your wedding gown has a low or wide-cut neckline, or slender straps your best choice is a strapless bra. Many strapless bras have versatile straps that you can change or remove to suit. Long line bras can help slim your waistline and enhance your bust at the same time.

Slimmer. The girdles have become old fashioned and out of style these days. It is important to select the right slimming undergarments. Try and use fabrics like Spandex or Lycra as they help your body stiffer. Also make sure that you buy slimmer, bra, stockings, and shoes that are your exact fit. A garment that is used for body-support helps in giving a good shape and will help in improving the way your gown fits you.

Panties. Panties are also important when you choose the lingerie for your wedding. Panties under the wedding dress may or may not be a problem depending on the fit; some styles may be more revealing than others visible. Select close fitting – but not tight -panties that do not show, especially if you are wearing a tight fitting wedding dress. G-strings are great for this purpose, if you don’t mind wearing them. If your gown isn’t a narrow silhouette – you have more choice as the panties line will not show through and you may prefer more modest lingerie.

Wedding Corset or Bridal Bustier. Remember that the gown and underwear must work together so think what would work well with your dress style. If there’s already boning in the dress design and it is already been altered to give a snug fit, then a corset or bustier would be unsuitable. Likewise, if the dress is of a light material, corsetry support may well show through and look unsightly, then you may only need a light supporting bra with some briefs and a choice of hosiery.

The corset is designed to be quite a rigid piece of underwear with bones or ribs to both reduce the waistline and place emphasis on the bust and hips, giving a splendor hourglass look. When choosing a corset it should be a size or two smaller than you’re regular sizing to allow it to pull in and reduce the waistline by a few inches, and ideally have a tie fastening to provide some adjustment. A bustier is a little more forgiving and still has the effect of pushing up your bust but by a lesser tightening of the torso.

Hosiery. You can wear a garner belt that is fancy, which has hooks to hold your thigh high hose. Make sure that you choose hosiery that fits perfectly around the waist so that it can’t be seen through the gown. Sometimes if you buy a garter that is inexpensive then there are chances that the pressure of the hose can pull the garter belt down. Before the wedding, make sure you had a dress rehearsal with the undergarments on.

Wedding Undies. When it comes to briefs there are maxi briefs, mini briefs, hipsters, high cut, low cut, g-strings and even mini-strings. A lot to do here is simply comfort and personal preference, making sure that whatever you chose any lace detailing isn’t going to show through your dress along with that dreaded VPL. It’s always nice to have a matching set and many bridal underwear collections often come with a choice of undies.

Style. There are two major styles of wedding lingerie. First is the Basque style of bridal lingerie; these normally come in beautiful white and ivory shades and are made with wonderful combinations of lace, satin and silks.

Garter. Before the wedding day choose what you feel more comfortable in, in pantyhose or garter belt. If the garter belt is inexpensive it can simply slide down under the pressure of the hose. So make sure it’s tight. If you can’t afford a good quality garter belt, better go for pantyhose.


Color. Since white is the standard bridal color, most women decide to wear that color for their wedding lingerie as well. Whether you decide to go for classic style bridal lingerie or the more risqué options, you can find a full range of both in white. That said, some brides like to be a little more daring with their color choice. Black is a very popular bridal lingerie color, as it is the perfect opposite of white in both appearance and symbolism. Choosing black lingerie will surely make an impression for your first night with your new husband.

Material. When you are deciding on the type of material for your bridal lingerie you will need to consider how warm it is going to be.  If you are having a midsummer wedding you will want to choose cotton or possibly silk, but synthetic fabrics such as nylon should be avoided. Corsets or bustier are currently very fashionable wedding undergarments as they can give more definition to your waist and bust, and they are particularly popular in tapestry or satin fabrics.

Try the entire undergarment with your dress. It’s important that your dress lay just right and fit just as it’s supposed to. So make sure you bring your bridal corset and bridal bra with you to every fitting of your dress. The measurements of the dress are taken with your undergarments on and will fit much differently without them, so it’s important to make sure your dress will fit perfectly with your chosen wedding lingerie.

One of the things many brides often forget about until the last minute is bridal lingerie. The dress is the most important feature of your wedding, but in order for your dress to fit just right, and for you to be comfortable on your big day; you must choose the right undergarments.

Bridal Undergarments. Tips to buy bridal undergarments

Choose you dress first

When you get your dress and you know its design, fabric it’s made of, its color and style it saves you from mindlessly wandering among lingerie shelves not knowing what to choose and what lingerie set to prefer. Ask for an opinion if you have problems with deciding.

Research a lot

The key of finding the perfect undergarments is to do a very detailed research. You can begin searching the internet for styles of lingerie that you and your husband to be will appreciate!

Meet your needs

Some people just want to look sexy. Others have specific needs, like accentuation of the bust, slenderizing hips or thighs, slimming down the midsection, etc. Make a list of points you would like to improve and possible suggestions, like shape wear, corsets, etc.

Think about comfort

A tightly laced, steel-boned corset may not be the most appropriate choice for an informal beach wedding where everyone’s wearing flip-flops. Similarly, you may not want to wear a simple chemise under a fully boned satin-and-tulle confection.

Try different things

You may like the sleek look of a corset, but love the way a bustier lifts and separates your bust line. Take into account bras, panties, corsets, bustier, baby dolls, chemises, robes and dressing gowns, stockings, hosiery, gloves, shoes, etc.

Appropriate color

White is traditional and very flattering on many women. Surely your husband to be will love it. If you opt for more colorful lingerie, make sure it does not affect the look of your wedding dress.

Purchase your items

Ask about the store’s return policy. See if they offer any special services for bridal purchases. Make sure everything is appropriately sized and comfortable. If needed get alterations!
