The style matters
The kind or the style of the wedding dress that you choose to wear for your wedding day can tell a lot about the kind of undergarments that you need to wear. Be specific about the wedding dress and choose the wedding lingerie in line with the dress only. A mismatch will make things uncomfortable for you.
Choose an appropriate bra
If the wedding dress has a high back then you need to wear a strapless bra that is supportive enough. You must remember that you will also have to dance while wearing your wedding dress. So a supportive bra is a must.
3. Sometimes the wedding dresses are of a style that dips quite deep into your back and in that case you cannot wear the strapless bra. If such is the style of your wedding dress then you can preferably go with a long-line bra or a bustier. A bustier will give you a slim look besides imparting the support.
Adhesive cups for backless dresses
Adhesive cups are an excellent choice to make when you have a backless wedding dress. But avoid using these cups if you are bigger than D –cup.
How much cleavage is appropriate
Know the decent cleavage level that looks appropriate with your dress. Use the inner garments that can thus minimize or maximize your cleavage.
Materials play an important role
Choose lingerie made of good fabric and materials. Fabrics like silk, chiffon and organza make good comfortable wedding lingerie.
Don’t compromise on comfort
A good thing will be to wear all the undergarments for a full day before you actually wear them on your wedding day. That will give you a fair enough idea about the kind of comfort that they provide to you.
Do not forget that the wedding lingerie is one of the important aspects of the wedding attire of any bride. The wedding night that is to be enjoyed by the groom and the bride will get a good flavor with nice pretty wedding lingerie.
Shopping for undergarments before the wedding
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.
5 Tips for choosing that sexy wedding lingerie
Although a lot of thought and effort is put into choosing the right wedding outfit, not much thought goes into choosing the lingerie that would come underneath it. Sadly, the choice of lingerie can either make or break the look of your wedding outfit altogether. So here are some essential pointers by Dr Prem Jagyasi and his team members you would need to consider when choosing the right lingerie for your wedding.
It is essential to consider the fabric of the lingerie you plan to buy, as it has to coincide with the fabric of your wedding dress. Close fit wedding gowns made of satin or any other light material will show off your figure. As such, you will need to choose lingerie made of light material too. Choosing lingerie with heavy embroidery or lace work would make it show out through your wedding dress awkwardly.
Choosing the right lingerie design also plays an imperative role in shaping up your wedding dress. Get rid of the panty lines exposed in tight fitting dresses by opting for thongs. Use a strapless bra or bustier for a strapless wedding gown. And choose to go without any lingerie only if you know you can carry it off.
If you are planning to choose a wedding dress that is tight fitting and designed to show off your curves, you would want to choose a form of shapewear lingerie that can hide imperfections nicely and smooth out extra layers that may otherwise show through the dress.
Nothing beats comfort when it comes to choosing wedding lingerie. It is your wedding and you don’t want to stand at the altar in a pair of rather uncomfortable lingerie that would spoil your mood. Do not choose lingerie for its looks or sex appeal. Choose it for its comfort factor and buy it only if you are 100% sure you can carry it off with ease.

Skip the boring whites and pastel shades and opt for some daring colors for your lingerie. After all, it is your wedding and you need to look your best, both inside and out. For instance, red and nude tints would not show out through a white wedding gown.
