Choosing your wedding lingerie

Your dress is everything you dreamed it would be, now what are you going to put underneath it? There are many options for bridal lingerie, bra and matching pants, corset or basque, strapless bra, multiway bra or for some even no bra, thong, pants or french knickers? Will you add stockings or not?

Your dress will of course be very important to the style of underwear that you buy. Is your dress backless, lightweight, a boned corset, straps or no straps, low back, lace? All of these things need to be thought about before choosing your wedding lingerie. If you have a larger bust, just be mindful that your bra will provide you with the support not your dress, even if it is boned.

Most brides will want to feel the best they possibly can, and often think that having matching corset, pants, suspenders and stockings is a much for their wedding day. However it really is dependant on what you want, whatever you choose it will be perfect for you. After you have found the perfect style underwear for your dress, you then start looking at the materials, satin, lace, or mesh, something that is not only stylish but supportive at the same time. It’s a bridal underwear minefield out there ladies so please take your time in finding what is just right for you.

I love how pretty this is with the lace, if you didn’t want the bra for your wedding day, why not for get it anyway so it can be warn again. Although your bridal lingerie is important, I think it should be something that you will wear again, not a one off set, well unless you have a healthy budget…. haha!

After you have chosen your wedding lingerie, the fun begins in choosing what to take with you on your honeymoon! Happy shopping.

Are Bridal tights for you?

Choosing your wedding dress

When I got married, I wore a strapless bra and lace pants, along with stockings and a suspender belt. All very ivory and pretty, I think that having something pretty under your wedding dress really helps you to feel confident and sexy on your wedding day.

Of course it is all dependant on what you are wearing. It could be you have a short dress, a long silky dress, backless, A-line, princess style. There is such a wide variety of wedding dresses and each one would need something different underneath. Some brides are wanting to wear stockings, or tights and some do not feel the need for either.

Choosing your bridal tights

Of course not only does your choice of dress effect this, it also depends on your shoes. For me open toes and tights is no, however I know that many people are happy with this. But footless tights could be just thing answer to this, if you are really wanting to wear tights and open toed shoes. Also if you are going to have a rather high heel, then you might need to think about the possibility of these needing to come off as the day goes on.

Would you be wearing flip flops, shoe-less or changing to a comfy flat pair. I know that I’m a shoes off kind of girl when it comes to my feet hurting, but I’m also more than aware that it often leads to holes in your bridal tights and stockings, which might not be want you want. So popping a pair of flat shoes under the table might be a good idea. It’s awful when your feet start to hurt.

One of the other things to think about when choosing your wedding underwear is, are you having a garter? Or are you wearing a garter but not having it removed by your new hubby during the evening reception? I think this will play a part in deciding if you are wearing hosiery.

There are so many things to think about when it comes to planning your big day, and I think you often forget the small little elements when you first start to plan.
