|Why Choosing The Best Undergarments For Your Wedding Dress Is Important|
You want to look polished and effortless in your wedding gown, and we’ll be the first to admit a lot of that confidence depends on what you wear underneath it. Keep the design integrity of a formfitting silhouette, plunging neckline, or statement back with the best undergarments for your wedding dress. You’ll thank us when you’re gliding down the aisle (all eyes on you!), dominating the dance floor, and posing for photographs.Scroll down for wedding dress inspiration and what to wear under your favorite.
Your dress has: A sexy, open back, like Amélie
The solution: When it comes to a backless wedding dress, a strapless, adhesive bra is a must. Silicone cups will provide the most natural look and feel, while keeping the attention on your gorgeous, dramatic back. No pesky bra straps here!
Your dress is: Strapless, like Aracella
The solution: Any strapless bra will do the trick, but we recommend a strapless, long-line bra. It’s attached to a corset-like bodice that accentuates your waist and smooths any lines, creating a flawless look for your wedding day.
Your dress is: A fit-and-flare or other formfitting silhouette, like Brinkley or Brinkley Lynette
The solution: Fit-and-flare gowns draw attention to your tummy, hips, and thighs. Target these areas with shapewear that falls just above the knees. It will give your silhouette a smooth finish, perfect for a curve-hugging mermaid gown.
Your dress has: A plunging neckline, like Bradford
The solution: Look for a bra that has a special cutout in the front to accommodate this low neckline. This type will usually have extra support on the side to ensure everything stays put, despite the dip in the middle. For an alternative, see if your bridal salon or tailor can sew the bra into your dress to give you built-in support.
Your dress is: A sheath, like Barrington
The solution: These slinky dresses aren’t too forgiving, but the right undergarments can make all the difference! Look for shapewear that smooths any problem areas such as lower stomach, hips, or your rear. A pair with boy-short or knee-length bottoms ensures a seamless finish.
When purchasing undergarments of any kind for your wedding day, stick to nude palettes that disappear under white and light colors. And, of course, aim for seamless! Made from hi-tech micro-fibers, this shapewear smooths your silhouette and eliminates those annoying lines. Plus, seamless undergarments are way more comfortable to wear, allowing you to sit back and enjoy your party. It’s your wedding day, after all!

Each of our gowns is optimized for support and comfort, featuring a variety of fit and construction options to accommodate your body type and style. Keep scrolling for our latest lineup…
Our New “Curve” Styles
We’ve recently introduced our “Curve” gowns optimized for diverse body types. These styles feature demurely raised necklines, lined illusion, and wider boning in the bodice—perfect for brides looking for a bit more coverage and support.
You can’t go wrong with our signature closure—the corset! This outer construction ensures a magical, versatile, and ultra-comfortable fit in a variety of styles. Plus, it’s fun for your bridesmaids to learn how to lace one up in a jiffy.
For brides who prefer the fit of a corset without the visible construction, an inner corset will do the trick. This feature is especially conducive to strapless ballgowns and A-lines that accentuate your waistline.
Designed to smooth and slenderize, this luxe fabric is a dream to wear. The layer helps to maintain the integrity of the gown’s silhouette, adapts and stretches to your natural curves, and keeps you feeling cool and breathable in all kinds of temperatures.
Pair a jersey-lined gown with a seamless bra and panties (or any other undergarments) to ensure this smooth fabric remains, well, smooth.
Lightweight and ultra-feminine, a satin slip adds that perfect dose of “ooh la la” to your soft fit-and-flare or relaxed sheath. Plus, a satin slip in a slightly different colorway adds visual dimension to your lace or illusion overlay.
When it comes to choosing underwear for your gown, treat a satin slip as exactly that—a slip. It can smooth and enhance your silhouette, but it’s not optimal for keeping everything in place. See above for our shapewear and undergarment recommendations for these chic styles.
Select Maggie Sottero Designs gowns feature bodices with built-in shapewear. Choose one of these premium styles to avoid having to make additional undergarment purchases down the line.
