Your wedding dress is a huge part of your big day. So much so that it’s the first thing many brides run out to purchase as soon as they’re engaged. They call their parents, friends, and family to announce their engagement, then they hang up the phone and start looking at dress magazines. No worries, this is completely normal. Of course, there happens to be one aspect of wedding dress shopping that many brides tend to shove to the side until the last minute, and that would be what they plan on wearing under the wedding dress. So if you’ve just purchased your wedding dress, here are a few tips to making sure your wedding lingerie is just as perfect as the rest of your day:

What to buy

1.) Make sure the style goes with your dress. Just as there are countless styles of wedding dresses, there are also countless styles of wedding lingerie, and you want to ensure the two match. If your dress is strapless, your lingerie should be strapless. If your dress is fitted, your lingerie should be smooth and seamless, and if your dress has any sheer aspects to it, it needs to be appropriately placed where any words or embellishments won’t be showing up for all to see.

2.) Make sure your lingerie is comfortable. There’s nothing like a 12-hour day of awkwardly tugging at your underthings. You’ll be walking around greeting guests, dancing, eating, and, among other things, getting married. The last thing you want is to be distracted by uncomfortable tugging, rubbing, or pinching. So after you buy your dress and wedding lingerie, wear it around the house for a full day. This should give you an idea of what your wedding day will feel like. Plus, this will give you plenty of time to take it to a tailor so they can have a chance to fix any uncomfortable areas.

Wedding Lingerie Tips

3.) Make sure it fits your personality. This may seem silly to include, but it’s important. Just as with any article of clothing, your lingerie says something about who you are. If your fiancé loves you for your sense of humor, a cheeky (haha, “cheeky”…get it?) or clever phrase written across your undies might be the fit. Look at an embellished set if you’re more of a bling girl. Either way, make sure your lingerie is just as much of a reflection of your personality as your wedding dress.

4.) Make sure it’s sexy. We could’ve skipped over this point entirely, but let’s be honest: lingerie has one very specific purpose. Sure, it’s important that it creates the perfect shape underneath your dress, but that’s not exactly why brides purchase wedding lingerie. They purchase wedding lingerie because they want it to be seen and removed from the frenzy only after someone gets married. And with the countless cut and fabric options, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to find the set that makes you feel like the amazing woman you already are.
