What You’re Wearing Under There
When it comes to finding THE perfect look for your wedding day, there’s something you need to consider in addition to the fab gown itself and all the gorge accessories – what’s going on beneath it all! Your undergarments on your wedding day are key to making sure your dress looks its best and that you feel your best in it.
So, what do you need to consider when it comes to bridal undergarments? Well, lucky for you there are a lot of options – and one of your best bets is going to be arguably the greatest invention since the wheel, and every woman’s saving grace – the one and only Spanx. If you haven’t heard of Spanx then you probably haven’t been looking your most slim and trim, because Spanx sucks you in and smooths you out to ensure all the lumps and bumps disappear in even the most unforgiving satin bridesmaids gowns (hint: a great wedding favor to give your your gals that I guarantee they will wear again and again!). You can find Spanx to help smooth out your problem areas whatever they might be, from a bit of a tummy to some jiggle in your thighs – they’ll help your dress lay better on your bod and will improve your confidence as your strut your stuff on the wedding day.
You also need to consider your bra for the wedding dress. If you’re going with one of the hot trends in bridal fashions – the backless gown, see about having a bra literally sewn into the front of the wedding gown. Or, there are several corsets that are not only created with super-low backs to coordinate with your gown, but you can even have corsets customized and tailored to meet your wedding gown needs. If you have a full ballgown, you can wear any type of underwear you’re comfy in, but if you’re showing off those curves in a figure-hugging gown, avoid the dreaded panty-lines and opt for a pretty white thong.
But, one thing to remember – after you narrow down your gown options, you should actually purchase your undergarments before you purchase your dress, or at least before you get it altered. The undergarments will change and improve the way your gown lays on you, but that also affects the alterations (helpful hint: bring your wedding shoes to the alterations as well so you know how short to make your gown – heel height matters!).
Of course, these types of undergarments may not be the sexiest for your wedding night, so you may just want to have a little something stashed away in your honeymoon suite so that you can slip into something “a little more comfortable” later on in the evening!
