If there’s one day when you really don’t want a wardrobe malfunction, it’s your wedding day – which is what makes bridal lingerie so important. The right underwear can make you feel comfortable, beautiful and glamorous – just like a bride should! Not only that, but shapewear can also give you your desired silhouette, so you can look back on your wedding photos with pride.
So once you’ve fallen in love with the dress of your dreams, you should turn your attention to more practical matters – what to wear underneath. If you’re unsure of your size, visit a department store or specialist lingerie retailer who can fit you properly; this is especially important if you are on a pre-wedding diet, as losing weight can affect your bra size.
Depending on the style of your wedding dress, you will have a variety of options available. If you’re wearing a sleek, fitted number then you may want to consider the Deity Body, an exquisite vintage-inspired body which features a powermesh inner to enhance your shape and flatter your body. Detachable straps make it perfect for strapless dresses. The Deity Strapless Bra is another option for those brides with strapless or one-sleeved dresses; the bra is designed to lift and support whilst elongating your body for the perfect figure. Why not pair with the Deity High-Waisted Brief for a classic look which is sexy as well as supportive? For a totally knock-out look, the Evie Bridal Basque is an elegant solution to your underwear woes, and will make you feel like a goddess.
Once you have bought your underwear, try wearing it for the day underneath your regular clothes to make sure that it’s comfortable. A rogue underwire or too-tight elastic could ruin your enjoyment of the big day, and it’s better to be safe than sorry. It’s also advisable to wear the underwear to your last dress fitting, to make sure that everything runs smoothly on the day, and that there are no last-minute disasters when your plunge bra boosts you from a modest size to something more impressive!
