Undergarments for Your Wedding Dress

May 14

You look polished and effortless in your Maggie or Midgley gown, but we know a lot of this depends on what you wear underneath! Keep the design integrity of your gown’s formfitting silhouette, plunging neckline, or statement back with the right undergarments. You’ll thank us when you’re walking confidently down the aisle (all eyes on you!) and posing for photographs.

Your dress has: A sexy, open back

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

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

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

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

The solution: These slinky dresses aren’t too forgiving, but fear not—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!
