What to Know Before You Buy Your Bridal Lingerie
While finding the wedding dress of your dreams is a moment Brides are eager to shop for, finding the right bridal lingerie for your wedding dress may not be as exciting. However, you should not overlook the importance of your bridal undergarments – the wrong bridal lingerie could ruin the look of your gorgeous wedding gown. Your bridal lingerie lay the foundation for your wedding dress and much thought and planning should be taken into account before you buy your bridal lingerie.
Rule 1: Resist the urge to purchase your bridal lingerie until after your first wedding dress fitting. It’s important to see and feel how your wedding dress fits you and what alterations need to be made before purchasing your bridal lingerie. After your first wedding dress fitting call a lingerie store and make an appointment.
Rule 2: Bring a picture of your wedding dress to your bridal lingerie appointment. Having an image will help your bridal consultant when choosing the lingerie for your wedding dress. Keep last-minute weight changes in mind when shopping for your bridal lingerie. Weight changes can affect how your bar will fit and could result in having to have a refitting.
Rule 3: Make sure you need a bra for your wedding dress before you buy one. A lot of wedding dresses have enough support and/or shape that could allow you from wearing a bra with the dress. If you feel the need for extra support, ask your wedding dress seamstress if a bra or corset can be sewn into your wedding gown. Also, for more revealing wedding dress style or for very thin wedding dress fabrics try an option such as Hollywood Fashions Silicon Cover-Ups – this will keep a smooth appearance in your wedding dress.
Rule 4: When shopping for bridal underwear for under your wedding dress focus on your dress before your personal preference. If you have a slim-fitting wedding dress you may opt for a thong to avoid lines. If you are nervous about lines, try a high-waist thong or even a full slip. If you have a ball gown wedding dress or a drop waist, you have more flexibility on what you can choose from. Just remember to find bridal lingerie that is comfortable since you will be on your feet the majority of the day.
