When it comes to getting ready for your Big Day, its important to remember that the Bridal lingerie you put under your Dress is almost as important as the actual dress.
The cut and fit of your Wedding Underwear is one of the important aspects to think about when achieveing your overall look.
I am delighted to welcome Sponsor and friend, Tanya of Moonrise Lingerie to give some advice on what you should be thinking about.
“When it comes to choosing and buying your wedding underwear for the big day it’s quite often done with little thought as to what you want to get from your lingerie.”
“Sure enough you want it to have a nice sexy look and feel about it for your wedding day, but if you stop and give it some thought you can achieve some wonderful results for your figure. It generally follows that if you look fantastic, then you’ll feel fantastic too!”
“The first tip as we’ve said is think about what you want your bridal underwear to do for you before you go lingerie shopping.”
“Do you need a lot of support for your bust?
Have you chosen a wedding dress that is figure hugging and close fitting with smooth lines? Thereby needing a seamless bustier or corset, so as to not show any boning or ribbing.
Do you want to pull in your waist a little bit to help emphasise your figure?
Is your gown off the shoulder? Lending you to a strapless bra or corset?
Do you feel like wearing some bridal body shapewear for the wedding day itself? Then changing into some more sexy lingerie for the wedding night?”
“The questions can go on and on, but each one helps you find the perfect solution that best suits you and your style of gown.”
“Here’s a few of our favourites that are proving very popular with today’s modern brides.”
Satin Bow Bustier.
“If you’re not feeling the need for the full body support and waist cinching effects you get from a traditional wedding corset, then a bustier is a nice compromise. The satin bow bustier is both beautiful and exquisite in every way. The lightly padded underwiring gives medium support to emphasise and wonderfully define your figure whilst the lace overlay and ruffled lace hemline makes for a stylish looking outfit. The satin bow is a great all rounder as its perfect for both the wedding day and also that special first wedding night. Complete the look with a matching thong, bridal stocking or hold ups and you’ll create a jaw dropping reaction that won’t quickly be forgotten.”
The Seamless Bridal Bustier
“Although designed and best suited to the close figure hugging styles of wedding gown, this seamless bustier will suit many styles of wedding dress. Its moulded cups provide a good level of support for the bust and with sizes going up to 44D it’s a great plus size lingerie option too. The material is very soft and also surprisingly forgiving for the support it provides, a great, comfortable choice.”
Gala Swirls Corset
“Corsets have been around since the 1500’s and were designed to give a waist cinching slimming effect, often as much as 2 inches. Not surprisingly the wedding corset is still a hugely popular choice with the modern bride.
The Gala Swirls corset is a truly beautiful corset available in a rather unique cream colour and has a fabulous flowing design. The floral embroidery is just gorgeous and complements the soft sheer cream material flattering the figure, making it an exquisite bridal corset.”
Madonna Bridal Bra Set
“A great deal of today’s bridal gowns are designed with a good element of support in the bodice for the upper body. However many brides feel a little uncomfortable without the support of a carefully selected good fitting bra. The very last thing you want on your wedding day is to be continually adjusting yourself or be feeling that things may pop out unexpectedly.
The Madonna Bridal Bra set is a gorgeous little set with a beautiful balconette bra, perfect to provide uplift to the bust. The cups are decorated with delicate lace embroidery and beautifully adorned with Swarowski crystals to add that special sparkle for the day. Shown with straps, they are detachable giving you a fabulous strapless bra, and the look is completed wonderfully with the matching thong and suspender belt.”
“It’s not a good idea to leave buying your bridal underwear until the last few weeks before your wedding, ideally you should have your lingerie for your final dress fitting to make sure it complements your bridal gown.”
“Accessories such as your wedding garter are great gifts to get from loved ones as your ‘something blue’, and if you’ve decided to wear stockings or hold ups you should really have a spare pair to hand. If you’ve really treat yourself with an expensive pair of stockings then you can always have a less expensive pair as a backup, it’s certainly better than a ladder!”
“Remember that whatever you choose it has to fit well and be really comfortable to last you through your wedding day as it can be quite a long day.”
“Moonrise Lingerie supply fine bridal lingerie designed especially for the bride with features such as low backs, strapless, seamless and deep décolleté solutions to be worn beneath the bridal gown to give the bride the comfort and support that a bride deserves on her wedding day.”
