Bridal lingerie secrets

Sexy or supporting? Inviting or invisible? Hold me in or hold him back? When it comes to choosing your bridal lingerie there’s a battle between the sensual look you want for the wedding night and something that’s going to make you feel a million dollars when worn under your dress.

Sexy or supporting? Inviting or invisible? Hold me in or hold him back? When it comes to choosing your bridal lingerie there’s a battle between the sensual look you want for the wedding night and something that’s going to make you feel a million dollars when worn under your dress.

Jarrold’s lingerie department manager Corrine Bell believes you can, and should, have both.

There are so many styles of wedding dress – low back, strapless, halter neck, corseted, spaghetti straps – and for each there is a lingerie solution.

“As bridal fashions have developed, new underwear options have to be created to keep up with them,” said Corrine. “We will always find a solution for any bride that comes in, whether that’s a particular type of bra, control underwear or one of the many gadgets and gizmos that are available.”

Corrine believes there are three key things that every bride should do before looking for bridal underwear. The first is to get properly fitted. “I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to be properly measured,” she said. “A good-fitting bra makes such a difference and it should be the first step for every bride.”

Next, get to know your dress. “When you have the dress on, consider where the problem areas are. It might be your tummy, bum or thighs, or maybe you’re not filling it out enough in the bust. This is all useful information to help the shop assistant find you the right underwear.”

And finally, do not be afraid to ask for help. Lingerie departments can be a daunting place, with lots of choice, but staff know their products and will help find the right solution.

Corrine stresses that you shouldn’t focus on finding something to impress on the wedding night.

“The most important thing is to find something that works with the dress. No-one is going to see what you’ve got on underneath and you can always slip into something else later on, just for the eyes of your new husband.”

She also suggests that brides don’t go looking for underwear with a set idea.

“So many brides come in and immediately say that they want a corset, but they only really work with dresses that are heavily embroidered and can therefore conceal the structure. They’re also not a great idea if you’re getting married in the hot weather of summer.

“Similarly, you won’t believe how many times I’ve heard brides say ‘I don’t like strapless bras because they fall down all the time’. Nine times out of ten, if a strapless bra is falling down it’s simply because it’s not the right size.”

The best colour to go for is a skin tone, especially for a delicate dress. A white or cream bra can stand out and show through the dress in certain lights – and, even worse, white underwear can glow when the disco lights come on.

Control underwear will hide any lumps, added Corinne, as it is designed to distribute everything evenly, with no overhang.

“Control underwear gives you a fantastic silhouette. If you feel supported and confident about the way you look, then you will ultimately enjoy the day more.”
