Bridal Underwear Suggestions
You’ve spent tons of time shopping for that perfect bridal gown, right? However, for the gown to look “just right” you should also spend some time looking for the right wedding day underwear too.
One of the most important articles of clothing for a bride, which is sometimes overlooked, is what is worn underneath the gown, wedding panties. I have seen many brides in a panic, just before the wedding, because they thought that what they wore underneath their gown would be an easy step…and it isn’t always that simple. Consider the following when choosing your bridal underwear.
Problems such as a low back gown, strapless, or even the material used for the gown such as silk, could pose an underwear nightmare. You don’t want bra clips, straps or even a lace bra under a chiffon gown giving you unnecessary lines and seams. Give yourself plenty of time to find the right bras for wedding dresses. Have a fitting and don’t always go with what the fitter has in stock, (it’s sometimes overpriced), but do find out your exact size.
If you do find a perfect fit and have time to shop, you can save money by knowing the exact brand of bra or corset and shop online. If you’re going to use the internet and have not tried sizes before, make sure you read the return policy from that site so that you’re not stuck with an item that doesn’t work. (I’ve had Brides buy two different sizes from us and just return the one that doesn’t work.) Always return the garment before your ceremony so that you don’t need to think about it again.
For you “shapely” brides that are a bit top heavy, give yourself ample time to find the right fit. Large or out of the ordinary sizes such as a 40C or 32DD can be a problem to locate quickly. You’ll want to have enough time to try on the bra and be sure it suits the dress and is going to be comfortable.
