Many bridal salons offer undergarments for sale. Sizes and styles are limited. Always bring a strapless or convertible bra or body shaper with you to try on dresses.
The Right Lingerie is the Foundation of a Great Wedding Dress
We have all done it - oggled the way the movie stars look in those spectacular gowns, not a lump or bump to be seen. So how come, a few weeks later, on the cover of the tabloids, they look very lumpy and bumpy in ill-fitting track suits or even worse - bikinis.
What is the secret? The right lingerie!
Just like the construction of any building, the foundation is the basis for everything else on top, and when it comes to wedding dresses, this is especially true.
Yes, designers add boning and construction curves to their designs, but what really accentuates the Bride's shape is the right lingerie. And not just for the Bride, but for the Bridesmaids as well.
For many women, their wedding day is the once in a lifetime opportunity to pull out all the stops on gorgeous, but functional lingerie. Choose undergarment pieces that are free of ruffles, bows and added adornment, save those for the honeymoon. Instead look for smooth cups, no obvious seams, a minimum of fabric and comfortable styling.
Let's start at the beginning.
The right bra makes all the difference in how your dress fits and is the minimum support undergarment you will need
Body Shapers are a great solution.
All-in-one body shapers offer the best solution and are the most comfortable to wear. Available in a wide variety of styles for strapless and plunging necklines, the body shaper smooths out lumps and bumps, cinches the waist, lifts the busts and supports your wedding gown to help you look your very best on your wedding day.
Don't forget stockings!
Luxurious stockings, either pantyhose, stay-ups or gartered stockings are an absolute must. Especially if the groom will be removing the garter during the reception! Show off your glamorous gams with one of these sexy but practical alternatives.
