We don’t think about our undergarments too much on a daily basis. If you’re like anyone here, you just grab something out of the drawer and go about your day. But your wedding day is a different story. And we’re not talking about picking something that’s frilly, lacy, or sparkly. On your wedding day, you need something that’s functional underneath that dress. Think of it like a movie set— sometimes the lead actress (your dress) is only at her best when she has a great supporting cast (the undergarments).
-If you’re wearing a strapless dress, you’ve got a lot of options. Ladies with smaller busts can get away without a bra if they ask their seamstress to just sew in some bust cups for definition. If you want a little support, a strapless bra works perfectly.
-Some dresses, however, need to be worn with a bustier instead. If your dress has a dip in the back of the bodice, you’re probably in the club. Just pick a smooth microfiber one with no visible boning. If you go with something too fancy looking, it’ll be visible through your gown.
-Dress too revealing for a bustier? Then get yourself a high-quality stick-on bra. It sounds silly, but they absolutely do the trick.
-Lots of brides choose a brief or boy-short panty instead of a thong. This is probably a good idea. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of a petticoat on a bare behind!
-If your wedding gown is sleeker on the bottom, you’ll need some special undergarments. It might be in your best interest to go with a smoothing foundation-garment that stops mid-thigh. Not the sexiest thing on the planet, but you won’t have any visible panty lines!
