You know the saying... it’s what’s underneath that counts. Your wedding dress may be the show stopper, but your lingerie is what will support you through the day—and night.
We’ve asked experts from French lingerie brand, Simone Pérèle, to give us the inside scoop. From what to wear under your wedding dress, to what to pack on your honeymoon, bridal lingerie can be your best ally and secret weapon with these four top tips:
1. A Supporting Role- Choose a Bra with Ample Support. On your wedding day, your lingerie should be like your best friend—supportive. The main role of your lingerie is to provide support so that you are comfortable and confident every moment of the day. Your bra should stand the test of hugging, posing and dancing through the night. Look for a strapless bra with side support and silicone grips, such as Simone Pérèle’s Avant Premiere or Romance Strapless Bra ($89). They’ll be seamless under your wedding dress, and the cleavage-enhancing cut will give you a beautiful bridal shape.
2. Size Yourself Up- Know Your Bra Size! The key to finding the perfect fit to support you from the ceremony to the reception is simple- wear the right bra size. You might be surprised to hear that more than 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size! Simply go to your local lingerie boutique and ask for a bra fitting. Your bridal lingerie will fit you like a glove!
3. Your Vow of Confidence- Don’t Sacrifice Style. There’s no need to sacrifice comfort for beauty. Bridal lingerie should reflect your personal style and make you feel confident. We love the timeless, elegant look and supreme comfort of the Nina Boyshort ($60) and stunning Avant Premiere Bustier ($160) by Simone Pérèle.
4. Before and Happily Ever After- Plan for the Honeymoon! Besides your big day, don’t forget about the lingerie you’ll need throughout the wedding weekend—from the rehearsal dinner to the honeymoon. Multi-position bras are a great solution to just about any dress or top. Try Simone Pérèle’s Fiji Multi-Position Bra ($89), which can be worn three different ways. For the honeymoon, we love the flirty, lace Nina Demi-Cup ($89), which is supportive and comfortable, yet undeniably seductive.
