You have your gown ready, but what shape wear are you wearing underneath it? Just as important as the gown is the supporting shape wear that you wear beneath it. Though it may be a safe option to keep the sexy lingerie for the wedding night and the honeymoon, they too have to be chosen by considering the following things. You should be comfortable on your wedding day and that should be your primary criteria for selecting undergarments too.
Importance of a comfortable innerwear
The foundation garment must be comfortable and fit properly to allow the wedding gown to slip over with ease. Choosing undergarments that are too big for you may leave your frame looking too big while a smaller fit may result in ugly lines and bulges resulting in a not so perfect silhouette. It is of prime importance that the innerwear matches your skin tone and not your wedding dress. This will ensure that the straps do not stand out or show from the dress and will let the eyes stay on your gown.
- Take your time choosing
It is important to give yourself enough time that goes perfectly with your perfect dress. When you are having your dress fittings you must schedule your under garment trials along, so you know exactly how well the shape wear gels with your dress. Take a lot of photographs from different angles to make sure that flash photography does not break the illusion of natural light.
If you cannot find an ideal fit from the market you might consider altering your innerwear to your size.
- Choose comfort over bling
Remember that on your wedding day you already will have loads of pressure on your mind, and would not want your ill-fitting undergarments be an extra cause of worry. Choosing a size bigger in the underwear can help make you feel comfortable in moving around and also cover up any lines or bulges in the stomach area. Choose your size keeping these areas in mind:
- Comfort around the upper body
- Snug fit around the hips and the thighs
- Shows off your curves and not our fat
- Tucks your tummy in just enough
- Choosing by considering your dress
When you shop for your dress it is best to shop for the big-day’s undergarments together. If you are planning a backless dress your choice must revolve around the backless bras. If your dress has a deep V- neckline, you must choose one of the Deep V-Neck brassieres with plunging necklines to ensure that your undergarments stay under. For the thongs you could choose one with a high waist line to smoothen the tummy area. You can also choose boosts for your backside as well as your front with body shaping wear.
- Keep a check till the last day
If you find yourself loosing or gaining (God forbid) before the wedding, book an urgent appointment with the lingerie store and get your undergarments fitted by size. Many brides often opt for gowns that are tailored in a way to provide optimum support and shape without the need of a bra altogether. If you want more support you can get a corset sewn into your dress too. If you are conscious about lines and bulges you can also choose to go with a full slip.
- Added details to undergarments do not help
A little bow on the knickers might look cute, but it may show from the dress. Choosing simple innerwear,the end result in mind is essential, which explains why we mentioned before that you need to devote time to make this decision. If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t find something that doesn’t leave a visible line, going commando may be an option if you already have enough support from your dress.
Choose wisely when you are preparing your undergarments for the wedding. Match your skin tone, keep the design simple if you chose lace and make sure your shape wear accentuates your silhouette.
