Our guide to bridal lingerie

If you’re tying the knot, we’ve got two things we’d like to say. First, congratulations! Second, please don’t leave getting your underwear for your wedding day until the last minute! What you wear under your dress is crucial for enabling you to look and feel fantastic on your big day. The last thing you want to be thinking about is your bra and whether everything is going to stay in place!

Here are our tips for making sure you feeling uplifted and fabulous on your big day.

Plan ahead and try before you buy


Many bridal dresses are now designed with integral bra support so depending on what you choose to wear, you may find that you don’t actually need to wear a bra at all (not a situation we Bravissimo girls are usually familiar with!).

However, many Bravissimo girls will need to wear a bra and if that applies to you, we recommend that you think about your choice of style from the start so you don’t have any last-minute panics trying to find something that works.

Different bras not only give various shapes but can also position your boobs quite differently and trying to find a bra that works under lace, sheer fabrics, strapless and other styles of wedding dress isn’t always easy. What’s ideal is starting with your bra so you can try different dresses with it and marry (sorry!) your underwear and outerwear so they are a great partnership.

A word about colour…

Some brides choose to match their underwear to the colour of their dress but the choice is yours. Depending on the material of your dress and your skin tone, a white or ivory bra could actually be quite visible so a colour that’s a closer match to your skin tone may be a better choice, especially under delicate or lace dresses.

What about shapewear?

Some women love the confidence that shapewear gives them and wear it every day. For others, it comes into its own when you’re wearing more fitted or sheer styles and you want a smoother silhouette. It may not be the most glamourous underwear for your big day but it’s how you feel that’s important. If it helps you feel great, what’s not to love about that?
