Picking your perfect wedding dress is hard enough, let alone choosing the right wedding lingerie to go with it. We asked Georgina from Guilt Lingerie to reveal her best lingerie shopping tips for all you brides-to-be…
While choosing your wedding dress, always consider underwear and if it is going to be possible to achieve an invisible look. Dresses are often smooth and sheer so discuss this with your designer or bridal boutique at the trying-on stage.
Big or small
If you want to wear a strapless wedding dress, think about the size of your bust and how you are going to support it if you are large-busted, or how you are going to fill the dress if you’re smaller. Always allow time for lingerie shops to find the perfect piece for you – sometimes a bra can even be built into your dress.
Day and night
There is a fine line between wearing lacy and pretty lingerie on your wedding day, and achieving a look that is smooth and unnoticed when your dress is on. Some brands achieve this but it might be an idea to wear a smooth plain set for the ceremony and have some beautiful lingerie and/or nightwear to change into later to impress your new husband.
Always think of leg cover and whether you will wear stockings, hold-ups or go bare-legged. This could affect the smooth line of your dress, too, so it’s important to consider.
An ideal lingerie piece for any wedding is a strapless, smooth body – it avoids any knicker lines and keeps you feeling secure and supported all day long.
