OUR GUIDE TO BRIDAL UNDERWEAR
Let’s be real, personally I find underwear shopping (specifically strapless bras) to be a pain. So when you add in finding underwear to go under your wedding dress to the mix, where do you even start? We have put together a list of options for you, all of which can be purchased online from invisible bras for low back dresses, bras to suit plunging necklines and of course shapewear for that smooth silhouette.
Some tips to make underwear shopping a little bit easier:
Match your skin tone, not the colour of your dress.
Simple is best - go for something seamless!
Size matters - the whole point to shapewear is that is smooths everything out, so don’t go buying a size smaller only to have have it dig in.
Alterations - if you have a low back dress of a plunging neckline consider having the bra sewn into the dress for support and so it doesn’t move around.
