What Every Bride Needs to Know about Lingerie for the Big Day

Every bride wants to look her best at her wedding, and lingerie can help you achieve that, if you know what you’re doing.

The most important thing to know is that you should have two lingerie outfits for the big day: one for under the dress and one for the evening’s escapades. This is because the lingerie that will help you look your best in the dress is not the same as that which helps you look your best out of your dress.

For under the dress, consider shapewear like Spanx. Those are the pieces that are going to nip and tuck and create a smooth silhouette. They’re not necessarily beautiful, but they certainly are effective. When you’re selecting these pieces, keep in mind that your dress may already provide much of the support you need as many dresses now come with built-in corsets and boning. The best thing you can do is bring your dress with you for your lingerie fitting. Then you’ll really know what will work best. And don’t forget to leave yourself plenty of time as some special pieces may have to be ordered in.

Then be prepared to change into something svelter for after the wedding. Depending on your preference, this could be a babydoll that skims your curves or a chemise and thong set that accentuates your shape.

One final tip: pick up some Body Tape when you drop by – it’s the fashion world’s duct tape. It affixes cloth to skin to make sure that you neckline never has a wardrobe malfunction or even cloth to cloth to fix a fallen hem at the last minute. It’s a must-have for last minute fixes and for that polished look.

Personalized service at Secret Drawers Lingerie can point out many options for both outfits that will make you look and feel like your best self on a day, and night, you will remember forever.
