A Complete Guide To Bridal Lingerie

January 20, 2021
By, laura

If you’re getting married in 2021, you might be thinking about putting the final touches on your preparations. Before your final dress fitting, you need to think about your bridal lingerie. Bridal lingerie is a small but significant part of your big day.

It’s something that you’ll only share with your partner. So while your wedding dress might steal the show, your bridal lingerie could be the most memorable aspect for your partner.

Choosing your wedding lingerie typically starts after you’ve chosen your dress. Your dress is likely to dictate the style of wedding lingerie you can wear, so it’s worth getting this settled before you choose what goes underneath.

In this Pleasure Delights guide, we will explore some of the most popular wedding lingerie styles, things you need to think about, and steps to take to ensure you are ready for your big day.

Popular styles for bridal lingerie

Your wedding lingerie should be a departure from what you would normally wear. It’s a special day, and you want your wedding lingerie to reflect this.

  • A bra and pantie set is the obvious choice. This will offer no body sculpting support, but this can be remedied with a slip worn over the top.
  • A bralette is a more relaxed version of a bra. They’re suitable for all sizes and can help you to feel more comfortable in a relaxed dress style.
  • A corset or basque might be required if you are wearing a form-fitting dress and you need a little more support. A custom corset or basque will help you to achieve the perfect hourglass figure.
  • Shapewear will help you to smooth out any areas you are self-conscious about. This can also allow you to wear a sleek dress with confidence.
  • A suspender belt might be required if you are planning to wear stockings. This will be more reliable than hold-up stockings and will give you confidence throughout the day.
  • If you’re getting married in the summer, anti-chafing shorts could save you from discomfort, particularly if your dress is quite heavy.
  • A slip can be made of figure-hugging shaping material or it can be looser. A slip will help to stop your dress clinging to your skin.

Choosing your bridal knickers

Your bra might not match your panties under normal circumstances, but this is a special day. With so many knicker styles available, it can be difficult to know what is best for you. These are some of the most popular bridal knickers styles.

  • A thong features a thinner strip of fabric in the back and is great for achieving an invisible panty line.
  • A g string is the smallest of the lot. This barely-there panty is flirty and fun, and will leave with you zero VPL.
  • Brazilian briefs are somewhere between briefs and a thong. They sit low on the hip and are cut away a little more in the back to achieve the perfect curves.
  • Shorts offer full-coverage and can be made from luxurious materials like silk to achieve a flirty feel.
  • Full briefs are a classic style and popular when made from control material. This can help you to achieve a flatter stomach.
  • Bikini briefs sit low on the hips and are a very flattering style. Choose cotton for comfort or lace for a flirty accent.

Style Vs function

Your dress might decide your lingerie for you. Some brides will opt for functional lingerie on their wedding day and then slip into something more sexy on their wedding night.

  • A form fitting dress might call for control underwear.
  • A backless gown might require a stick-on bra.
  • A strapless bra could also be required for a strapless gown.
  • Some brides choose to wear a shaping slip to achieve a smooth silhouette.

If your wedding lingerie needs to be functional, then consider having a spare set that you can slip into in the evening. Pair this with a silk robe to complete the look. You could even choose a white lace teddy instead of lingerie if this will make you feel more confident.

Does it have to be white?

Many brides choose to wear white as it’s more traditional, but there is nothing to say you can’t choose any colour under the sun. Ivory is also a popular colour for bridal lingerie, or you could wear blue to make it your “something blue”.

Some brides may choose a bright and vibrant colour as this will be a surprise to your partner. While you may be thinking about how to surprise and impress your new spouse, remember that you should always be comfortable and confident in whatever you choose to wear.

If you’re going to opt for a bright or dark colour, make sure you check that it isn’t visible through your gown. You don’t want to ruin your wedding photos with a flash of hot pink bra strap.

When should you try it on?

You want your wedding lingerie to be perfectly fitted and comfortable. If you are planning to lose weight before your wedding, you should purchase your wedding lingerie as close to the big day as possible. The month before would be ideal.

Your lingerie needs to fit perfectly, but it also needs to fit under your dress. If you are having your dress adjusted before the big day, your seamstress may recommend wearing the lingerie you are planning to wear as this could change your silhouette dramatically.

Should you change on your wedding night?

Some brides opt for comfortable lingerie during the day and then slip into something a little more daring and seductive in the evening. Your wedding day is going to be a long day and you’ll want to be comfortable every step of the way.

This is one reason you might choose functional and comfortable lingerie for the ceremony and reception and then slip into something a little more seductive later in the evening.

This will give you more freedom to choose a lingerie style that might not work well under a dress, but that stands alone as your wedding night outfit. Remember to pair evening lingerie with a silk robe to complete the look.
