Matching Your Bridal Underwear to Your Wedding Dress for the Perfect Fit

The wrong underwear can completely destroy your outfit; and you certainly wouldn’t want such a thing to happen on your wedding day. It is very important to buy bridal underwear with as much thought as you would pay to your wedding gown (well perhaps not as much, but almost).

Once you have finalised your wedding outfit, it is time to buy the right bridal underwear that perfectly complements it.

Here are some tips for find the perfect bridal underwear for your special day.

Let’s Talk Colours

Brides may prefer white underwear to wear with their weddings gowns. But you can also wear nudes and cream shades depending on the exact shade of the gown.

The idea is for the bridal underwear to not be visible through the dress. If your dress is sparkling white, check to see if the white underwear is visible when you pair it with the gown. Often ivory shades work better in remaining invisible with white outfits. But if you are not hung up on white or cream shades, you can also opt for nude underwear with your white bridal gown.

Nudes don’t have to be boring. Choose a style in lace or floral prints. You can also use bras with pink or peach undertones if it works with the fabric of the gown. Try different colours with your gown and check their effect with different lighting. If your ceremony is outdoors, check if the underwear you have chosen is visible in the daylight underneath the gown.

Now, the Style

The style of the bra will depend on the neckline of your gown. Strapless bras match perfectly with most necklines that are popularly used in wedding gowns. For halters, illusion, off-shouldered, one-shouldered, and of course strapless gowns; you will need strapless bras. For low-cut necklines, a plunge bra is ideal. If your gown is backless, choose a bra that you can wear with adhesives if a bra sewn into the gown is not an option.

If you are not comfortable wearing strapless bras, one option is to choose corsets to wear instead. You can try wearing one a few days before the ceremony to check how it feels to you. Corsets are more fitted than strapless bras and can offer you more comfort if the wedding ceremony is going to be a long one.

If your wedding gown is in designs such as columns or fishtail; choose seamless panties to avoid visible lines. For freer skirt designs, you can choose underwear of your preference. Also consider fabrics when choosing your underwear. Visible lines from panties can be apparent in fabrics such as chiffon or georgette. So, it is best to choose a lace or simple white or cream thong for such gowns. With wide gowns, you do have the leeway to wear any kind of underwear. So, try something sexy in sheers or lace.

Designs Galore

With so much variety available in terms of bridal underwear, you don’t have to compromise on the design just for the sake of perfectly matching it with the wedding gown.

Corsets work with most gown styles. You can wear one for the ceremony. Later, you can pair it with stockings once the wedding ceremony is over and you want to add more oomph to your wedding style. You can also opt for teddies instead of the usual bras to wear under the gown.

Bridal bustiers can offer you look and feel of old-world glamour on your wedding day if this is what you want. Bustiers work well with almost every neckline and are super comfortable too. If you prefer the softer touch in your lingerie sets, choose a bra with sheer cups.

To Summarise

When choosing bridal underwear, the comfort factor is as important as the perfect match. Pay attention to the fabric and styles before buying a bridal set. It is best to avoid designs with embellishments as they can be apparent when worn under delicate gowns.

The ideal bridal underwear is seamless, comfortable, and perfectly complements a wedding gown. But it also makes the bride look and feel very special.
