Lingerie Set: Tips For Wedding Lingerie Essentials

There are a lot of things that must be properly prepared and chosen for a special wedding. The reason behind this is to make the wedding day the most memorable and special of all days. Included in this list is the wedding dress, which by the way, has to be chosen very well to complement your best features. What most of us disregard about the wedding dress is the wedding lingerie to be worn under the elegant wedding gown.

Majority of brides, possibly those who are strictly following a budget, is that wedding lingerie is just an addition to the already innumerable expenses. But little do these ladies know that the proper choice of lingerie would be vital in feeling comfortable beneath the wedding gown. Comfortable in the sense that the undergarments would not cause any itch on your skin as one wears a possibly heavy gown, or of feeling that the bust has sufficient support especially if the gown is strapless.

Before a gown is worn, the bride definitely wears some undergarments like brassieres and panties. These undergarments are not luxury but protection especially for the bride's personal body parts. In choosing wedding lingerie, the bride has to select smartly. Lace lingerie seems sexy but may not provide definite comfort. What must be chosen are lingerie made with flexible materials and comfy fabrics like cotton, silk and satin. The choice of undergarments may also be determined by what effect the bride wants for her body to have. Corsets tightly worn may make for a smaller waist and good posture but may also be uncomfortable while worn on the body.

Aside from comfort, the lingerie to be chosen must also match the wedding dress. Here are some types of wedding lingerie:

  • Bustiers are popularly worn with strapless gowns. Strapless bras may seem okay but the bustier will provide better protection especially for brides who are better bosom endowed than other women. Plus it tightly fits around the waist and gives a smooth line beneath the gown.
  • Seamless bodysuits particularly thong-styled ones are best with sheath gowns. Those made with microfiber are even better as they provide the smoothest silhouette on the gown made of more delicate fabrics like silk, chiffon or organdy. Bustiers', bras' laces and ribbons may prod through these delicate materials and create unsightly bumps.
  • Traditional bra, bustier or any kind of lingerie may be worn in a strapless gown given that the straps are wide and the back is high enough. But if the strapless gown is made with delicate and thin cloth, chances are, these undergarments will show unfittingly, so seamless or microfiber undershirts would be a better choice.
  • Adhesive bra are the best to be worn for a backless gown. Better is the self adhesive bra has underwire to better support the bust. Choose also a style utilizing larger adhesive tapes and women with larger breasts must use two tapes in each breast to ensure the bra won't fall off. And make sure that the adhesive strips or tapes are applied on clean and dry skin. Clean the skin surface with rubbing alcohol to remove natural body oils or lotion residues.
