Quick Guide to Bridal Undergarments
It is important to understand that the wrong undergarments can totally ruin the look of your gorgeous bridal gown; NO ONE wants that! Although shopping for bras and underwear may not be as exciting as finding your dream dress, you must still remember that they are part of your finished look; your foundation garments. The last thing you want your guests to notice are visible straps, lumps, or lines under your gown. The following are some good tips to help you decide how and when to pick the undergarments for your big day.
Use your first dress fitting as a chance to learn what kind of lingerie will work best. There, you will find out if buying a bra is at all necessary for your particular dress. Typically there is enough support in the bodice of gowns to where you will not need a bra; however, if you’d like a little more support, sewing cups into your gown, buying a bra, or using stick-ons are always an option.
When it comes to underwear, 90% off the time, a nude thong is your best bet. However, depending on the style of your dress, you may not be limited to just that. Brides need to be most careful with their underwear choices when their dress style in straight, sheath and/or see through in certain areas. Above is an example of the type of shapewear you may choose for a straight, fitted, key-hole back, bridal gown. Shapewear, such as Spanx, is also a wonderful option when you have a gown to show off your curves! Giving your lingerie consultant a little background information about your dress will help them find the perfect undergarments for you.
Don’t forget your foundations garments for your perfect day!
