Bridal And Wedding Lingerie: Before The Gown Goes On

Dec 2, 2007
Many brides put a lot of thought and consideration into their wedding dress. What about the wedding lingerie that slips on before the dress? What you wear underneath your wedding gown is as important as the dress itself. Carefully chosen wedding lingerie does more than look good at the end of the day, it enhances the outer appearance of the dress throughout the event.

Bras, girdles and hosiery all contribute to the overall effect by smoothing out everything underneath to make your dress appear flawless. Why wear run-of-the-mill underwear when you could wear sexy bridal lingerie? Don't worry about comfort, either. Sexy doesn't mean itchy or tight-fitting. If you choose a bridal lingerie set that fits right, you'll be comfortable all day long.

Let's take a look at a few of the key components for your wedding lingerie:

The Bra

It's a fact: Most women don't have a bra that fits properly or even know the proper way to be fitted for a bra. We've all suffered through bras that are too tight or too loose, or the cups are too big or way too small. The straps slip and the under wires are uncomfortable. In general, an ill-fitting bra has the potential to be as much of a torture device as anything the Spanish Inquisition could dream up.

Start by going to a good lingerie store. The saleswomen helps guide you in finding a bra that fits properly. They teach you how to take the proper measurements and find the styles of bras that flatter your particular form. Designers are well aware that women want decorative bras and want comfort too. You'll have many styles to choose from.

Girdles

Girdles may have fallen out of fashion over the years, but they do play an important part in your wedding lingerie. A girdle helps to smooth out all the errant curves and form them where they belong to enhance the fit of your dress. Fit is important. Get the right measurements and you'll have a garment that's comfortable and flattering.

If you choose pantyhose, make sure the waistband isn't so tight that it shows through the dress. This is where the girdle helps smooth out a sharp division at your waist. If you go the garter belt route, don't go cheap. Clips on the cheap garter belts might slip. You don't want your stockings bagging around your ankles during that all-important first dance as husband and wife.

Before closing the sale on the wedding dress, take some time to put together well-fitted wedding lingerie. Make sure everything is snug and relaxed. It should fit with the wedding dress and should be discrete enough that it saves some of the surprise for later. The right bridal lingerie can make all of the difference in terms of the overall comfort and style of the special day.

There are so many different styles out there, do your research, feel comfortable and most of all enjoy every second of looking forward to your big day, it is after all the most important day of your life.
