When it comes to selecting just the right underwear for your wedding gown, you need to consider practicality, as well as beauty. You may be tempted to wear frothy, frilly underwear, but going for more supportive pieces will ensure that your silhouette is smooth and flawless on the big day.
The Right Wedding Underwear
Underwear is so important, and this video goes through the worst ones and the best one you can buy.
- If you are full-figured you may want to wear Spanx under mermaid-style or fitted wedding gowns, this will help to streamline your hips, belly and thighs.
- If you have more boyish lines you will benefit from push up bras with discreet padding, as these will add a little fullness on top. This is especially true if you are a leaner woman with smaller breasts and are planning to wear a strapless gown or a design with a low neckline.
- Lingerie should be of high quality. Look for smooth seams or seamless styles in colours that will never show up under your white wedding dress. Nude designs, basic white, and the palest pastels will all work well.
- For wedding night romance, keep a frilly, frothy and romantic lingerie set at the ready, or slip into a satiny negligee. Then, you’ll have the best of both worlds.
