Tips for the perfect bridal lingerie
Spring is the ideal season to look for beautiful, comfortable bridal lingerie. There’s an unlimited choice of romantic sets, so you could do worse than to follow our tips to find the perfect lingerie match for your wedding dress!
How to choose the perfect bridal lingerie
The spring is perhaps the nicest season to say ‘yes’ to the love of your life. The sun is shining (hopefully, anyway) and there is an unlimited choice of pretty lingerie sets for under your dream-day dress. Follow our tips to ensure your lingerie matches your wedding dress perfectly: pretty, comfy and sooo romantic.
First the dress, then the lingerie
Remember to always choose the frock first. The cut is the most important factor: under a bustier dress you wear a strapless bra, under an extra tight one you’ll prefer sensual control briefs, like Lolita’s in romantic pink, or a figure-fixing body or underdress, like Couture’s. You should also match the fabric of your lingerie to the fabric of your dress. If you've chosen a wedding dress with a lot of lace or embroidery, go for a set with abundant needlework. Smooth lingerie that does not show under clothes is the best choice under fine plain fabric. Perle’s smooth sets are ideal.
White is not the only show in town
White is the traditional colour of bridal lingerie: romantic, pure and perfect under a wedding dress in off-white or a soft champagne tint. Consider Aurora, the series with elegant floral embroidery and silver sparkle – talk about love at first sight! If you plumped for a white dress in a light fabric, go for a set in seductive red or a sensual nude tint. These are two sexy colours that do not show under white. Our tips: Divine in Venus, a soft pink (check out the strapless bra!), or classic Trésor in Caffè Latte.
Irresistible cleavage: check!
Like a dress with a sensual neckline? Go for it, but do take care when choosing your bra. A balcony bra shows off some of your upper breasts, for instance – some versions also offer an extra deep plunge. Not totally sure about the shape of your breasts? Go for a bra with padded cups to fill out your bosom. Perle has the perfect deep plunge padded bra.
Party all night long
It's hard to enjoy yourself when your lingerie looks so good, but feels so annoyingly uncomfortable. Thankfully, the time when you had to grin and bear it is gone, because even shapewear is so comfy these days that you can party all night long. Try the Poupoupidou briefs or the A La Folie sets.
Professional styling advice
The need for your wedding dress to be as beautiful and comfortable as possible is a great excuse for having your measurements taken by a professional lingerie stylist. An estimated 70% of women wear the wrong sized bra. If you’re one of them, it’s likely that your breasts don’t get the support they need and your bra will never feel totally right. You should get professional advice on the right size and the right style for your body.
