When it comes to planning for your wedding, one of the most exciting parts is shopping for that perfect dress. But not everyone thinks about what goes under the dress.
Depending on the type of dress you get, you may or may not need a bra or you may be able to get one built into the dress. If you decide to go the bra route, there are a number of options.
A bustier is a nice option if you want to be sucked in and pushed up a bit. They make bustiers with low backs that won’t be seen, no matter how low cut the back of your dress is.
Another option is a strapless bra. If you don’t need the coverage a bustier provides, or your dress doesn’t allow for it, a simple strapless bra could be perfect. Although if your dress is a halter, or has some thin straps or straps that cross in the back, a convertible strapless is a nice option since you can use the straps in any way to suit your dress and, in the process, give yourself some extra support.
If your dress is too low in the back for anything, or you don’t want it to be seen through your dress, a backless strapless bra, like this one, might be perfect for you. Remember to talk to your seamstress when you go for your fitting, they can recommend a perfect bra for your dress. Also remember that once you are fitted in your dress with a specific bra, that’s the bra you will need on your wedding day! You don’t want you dress to not fit correctly because there is a different bra underneath.
When it comes to panties, it all depends on what you’re comfortable with and what your dress allows for. If you have a very fitted gown you might be better off with a thong or something seamless. If your dress doesn’t limit you, go with what you’re comfortable with! You can go with a classic bikini or boy shorts, lacey ones are or embroider panties with “Mrs”, or something cute.
If you want your dress to appear a bit fuller you may want to consider a crinoline, petticoat or hoopskirt, as it will help fluff out the bottom of your dress. You can also make it a bit more fun by dying it to match your color scheme or personality.
