Essential lingerie garments for your wedding day

02 Jul 2018

Ensure you feel comfortable and supported from noon till night with these essential lingerie items for your wedding

For most brides the stress of finding their dream wedding dress can overshadow the importance of the correct underwear. Yet leaving your lingerie to the last minute will often mean that you don't shop around for the best quality or most comfortable pieces... and you may even forget a particular garment altogether. 

Your local bridal boutique will be able to advise on the lingerie suited to your style of dress. While you can use size guides to find the perfect fit, it is also worth getting properly measured by a professional to exude utmost confidence on the big day. Most large department stores offer a fitting service but don't overtly promote it so ask a member of staff in the underwear department. 

To help you get started before shopping, take a look at these key lingerie items to take you from day to night and into married life...

Lounge gown

For the morning of your wedding, it is imperative that your wedding hair and make-up is done before you put on your dress. Get ready in a lounge gown to preserve your modesty while looking pretty for those preparation shots.

Violet & Wren Kimono in Sundrenched Tulip, £245

Matching set

Brides whose underwear must match will be spoilt for choice with pretty and feminine sets readily available on the high street and higher end stores. French knickers and bras with lace detailing and embroidery are classic bridal choices but be aware that this intricacy is more likely to show through a tighter dress.

Curvy Kate Luxe Ivory Strapless Multiway Bra, £34 (in sizes 28J to 40J)

Backless bra

Plunge back dresses are all the rage right now, but there's no point in choosing this style if you don't feel fully supported (just think of the evening dancing!). Choose a stick-on bra or a low back bra converter.

Invisibra 'Avery' Push Up, £42

Brief

For generous coverage that leaves a smooth finish, a full brief is your new best friend. Make sure the sizing is correct so the seam doesn't dig in to your skin and leave visible lines against a form-fitting dress.

Chantelle Lingerie Soft Stretch Briefs, £13 per brief (in high waisted, hipster, brazillian or string and nude, ivory, soft pink and pink lemonade; sizes S-XL)

Miraclesuit Comfort Leg Brief, £33.50

Thong

For guaranteed discretion, a thong is the perfect underwear option for those who hate VPL (visible panty lines). Choose neutral colours rather than garish shades to ensure your underwear goes completely unnoticed.

Victoria's Secret Floral Lace Thong, £9.12

Suspender belt and stockings

If you don't fancy a naked leg and would rather wear a nude stocking, buy a suspender belt to ensure no sneaky slips when you least expect them.

Bluebella Laura Suspender Rose Dust, £16

Garter

Add a touch of tradition with a feminine garter; the perfect opportunity for your 'something blue' and a beautiful keepsake of your special day.
