How To Choose The Right Undergarments For Your Wedding Day
Dresses come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s important to choose the right bra or shapewear for you, to ensure you get the intended shape from your dress. Whether you’ve got a backless dress or a dress with a mermaid silhouette – the perfect undergarment for you is out there. Let’s take a look!
If your dress has a gorgeous open back, not only do you need to go strapless, but you’ll also need to go backless too! So a backless bra that’s adhesive is an absolute must-have. They’re often made from silicone and come in a range of colors and patterns. You can find backless bras in stores such as Invisibra which are around £40 – they even come with matching underwear too!
If you have a strapless dress, this is the perfect time to wear a push-up corset bra, otherwise known as a longline strapless bra. They’re perfect for accentuating your figure and showing off your gorgeous curves! This longline corset from Corset Story is stunning and is ideal under most strapless wedding dresses. It’s worth noting that if you’ve never worn a corset before, be sure to practice beforehand – they can be hard work!
Bridal shapewear is perfect if your dress is a mermaid silhouette. It can cover your thighs, tummy, and hips, and give the experience that everything is extra smooth. Let’s be honest, not many of us are blessed with being naturally smooth everywhere!
If your dress has a gaping neckline, a plunge bra is perfect. They often have a cutout in between the cups which allows for your cleavage to be on full display. You may worry that you won’t have enough support, particularly if you have big breasts – but don’t worry, the support you’re losing from the front is moved to the sides of the bra.

So be sure to choose nude colors if there’s a chance of any mishaps!
