It should shape and support your body to ensure the perfect fit of your wedding gown.

You may have set your heart on the most fabulous of boned French basques made from the finest Belgian lace and hand embroidered. But in reality it’s likely that something structured like that could show through your dress. Many elegant gowns at the moment are softly draped chiffon and georgette fabrics, so lingerie with a softer line would be advised.

The lingerie under your gown should be invisible and feel virtually that way. Do remember that a wedding day is a long day so consider how your lingerie will look after you have been standing and sitting for hours - and dancing the night away! Seamless support to give a perfect silhouette in neutral tones to suit your colouring is the best lingerie to wear under your gown - and do remember you can always take that glamorous basque on honeymoon!

For expert personal advice it is wise to visit a specialist store where they will provide a fitting service to ensure the ultimate fit and comfort of your wedding lingerie. It is vital that you wear your bridal lingerie for every fitting of your wedding dress to obtain a perfect fit.

A specialist will suggest ranges with sizes from petite to the fuller figure which are ideal for bridal and special occasion lingerie which includes strapless bras, bustiers and basques designed to make you feel truly elegant and feminine.

As for your wedding night and honeymoon, a specialist can help here too. They will show you a collection of seductive lingerie and ethereal nightwear that is either tantalisingly glamorous or simply understated.

One consultation with your specialist will convince you that their personal attention to detail (that you would not receive in a chain store) is what you need. You want to look and feel fantastic on your big day, and nothing should distract you from enjoying every moment of the celebrations, least of all your underwear!
