Bridal Lingerie - Wedding Day Lingerie
Right Undergarments Are Essential!
Dear April Masini,
I'm getting married next week and was so worried about my dress, that I am now realizing I don't have a suitable bra or underwear to go with it! It's clingy and white shows everything ... I don't usually wear anything like this, of course, so I hadn't thought of this issue until my final fitting."
Do you have any tips for finding good lingerie or underwear for my wedding gown?
April Masini's Advice :
What's under your wedding gown is just as important as what your wedding gown looks and feels like. If you have the wrong bra and/or camisole on, your big day look will be a big flop. You don't want to have people staring at your breasts for the wrong reasons. If you don't think about your wedding day lingerie, other people will be thinking about it -- and noticing it and talking about it. Stray straps, loose elastic and bra lines that show through are all major faux pas' you'll want to avoid.
Here are some wedding day bra tips:
- Shop for your wedding lingerie with the same amount of scheduling and time that you did for your wedding gown. Don't leave underwear for the big day until the last minute.
- Try the lingerie on with your wedding gown. Just because it fits and looks good on your body does not mean it will fit or look good with your particular gown. Yes, this is tedious and it's necessary. Do it.
- Buy an extra pair of what you plan to wear on the wedding day. Accidents happen. Spills, rips, forgotten items of clothing are left behind. Have an extra pair just in case. You can even leave the tags on and return them after the wedding if you don't end up using them.
