You spend week’s possibly months choosing the perfect wedding dress, you have the most beautiful flowers, venue and everything is falling perfectly into place for the big day. You have spent a fortune on getting yourself in shape with facials, manicures, pedicures, hair colors and cuts, make up and tanning. You may have however made the mistake like many brides and over looked your bridal lingerie. This is a vital part of your planning for the big day as all the other elements could be ruined if the undergarments are not correct.
Bridal lingerie can see like a bit of midfield but there a few essential elements you need to decide on they are bra, pants and hosiery. The most important thing about getting the bra right is that it fits. Many women have never been properly fitted for a bra and this is the perfect opportunity to get professionally fitted. Most stores offer a free service for bra fitting this really can prove invaluable. Once you have correctly identified your size you should consider the shape and material of your dress. If you have for example a backless dress than you will need to look for an adhesive bra or specially fitted low cut bra. You also need to be careful when choosing the color anything highly patterned will show through and should be avoided.
If you have lumps and bumps and you would like to be streamlined then some magic pants can be great option. Think Bridget Jones style pants that don’t look particularly attractive when worn alone but when worn under a fitted dress can work wonders. Some dresses allow for all types of pants such as a ball gown or a-line cut. If you have a dress like this then you can choose pretty much anything. There are some really beautiful pants available complete with bows and ribbons or you could even get personalized ones! Just make sure that you are comfortable and they suit your body shape. French cuts knickers and boy shorts are more flattering to the bottom than a g-string. Whatever you chose make sure you are comfortable as you will be wearing them all day.
Once the bra and pants have been chosen you might want to wear some form of hosiery. Hosiery can be good if you are having winter wedding as it will keep you pins a bit warmer and can add some color to your legs. If you are wearing open toed shoes then make sure that you have seamless tights or stockings.
Basically you want your bridal lingerie to flatter your assets and remain invisible. You don’t want any knickerlines or bra straps on show. You want to feel as comfortable and as confident as you can on your big day so plan your bridal lingerie in advance. Even if it doesn’t look great on its own what’s important is that is working hard. You can change into something more attractive for your wedding night later on!
