At Secret Drawers Lingerie, we’re honored to work with brides for their special day. Women of all ages come in wanting something special, so they can look their very best as all eyes in the room fall to them as they walk down the aisle.
Unfortunately, what most brides don’t realize is looking great on their wedding day isn’t the same thing as looking amazing on their wedding night. Most women would be quite happy to reveal the Va Bien bustier, seen right, on their wedding night, but while beautiful on its own, that might not be the best thing for underneath your wedding dress proper.
The gorgeous plunging neckline, lace and ruffles of the piece look great against skin, but may appear bumpy under fabric. A piece like this often doesn’t give a woman the lift and support she needs under a strapless dress either.
Advice to Brides
Our advice, of course, is more lingerie!
Brides are much happier if they focus on two looks: one for the wedding day, and one for the wedding night.
Wedding Day Lingerie
For under the dress, brides should look for well-fitting, supportive lingerie. We recommend a bra-fitting to ensure the perfect fit, keeping in mind that fit in a strapless bra is the key to keeping it, and you, in place. Secret Drawers Lingerie is pleased to provide complimentary professional fittings, but they can be found in other specialty shops too.
In addition to the bra, a product like one from our Sveltesse line, seen left, is ideal. This line of body shapers is the best we’ve ever seen in smoothing out any body imperfections while invisible under clothes. The model shown left extends from the ribcage, down to the thighs, with not a bump or line in sight. The specially-designed bands around the ribcage and thigh hold them neatly in place so you won’t be seen tugging and adjusting uncomfortable underwear on your wedding day. In nude, it’s the perfect item for under a tight-fitting dress – and no one will know you have it on!
Wedding Night Lingerie
Once your day look is under control, you can be as naughty, or as nice, as you please at night. The Va Bien bustier, above, is perfectly sinful in black, paired with long silk gloves and stiletto heels. Or, if you prefer, the Hanky Panky dotted tuille thong and garter set, seen right, paired with a lace cami and your bright smile is cute and flirty.
Two looks can keep everything smooth on the wedding day and steamy on the wedding night; because. on this special day, certainly, underwear matters.
