Don’t overlook the fabric
When brides are shopping for their wedding underwear, one thing they often overlook is the fabric. It’s best to approach your shopping by thinking about what you want your shapewear to do. If you’re looking for it to help sculpt your figure, shop around for textured fabrics that add structure to your shape and silhouette. If you need extra support, shapewear with a built-in corset might be your best option.
You also want to consider the material of your wedding dress. If you’ve chosen a lightweight fabric, such as silk, you’ll want to pay extra attention to the shapewear that you’ve chosen. Silk is notorious for giving you a visible underwear line, so you’ll want shapewear that will smooth your silhouette and hug your curves.
Almost every wedding dress will need shapewear underneath to give you the smoothest silhouette. If you’re wearing a backless or low-cut wedding dress, you’ll want to pay extra attention to your shapewear to ensure you get a seamless look. The most popular fabrics for wedding underwear include spandex and nylon as they’ll hug your curves, sculpt your silhouette, and remove any visible lines.
How to find the right wedding underwear
Underwear has the power to make or break your wedding dress. The last thing you want is your bra straps peeking out or a ‘skin tone’ colour bra playing hide and seek through your dress fabric. Your wedding day is also a time when you don’t want to be constantly adjusting your underwear or feeling uncomfortable.
Some brides choose to have their wedding underwear sewn into their dress for the most seamless look, but wedding shapewear doesn’t have to be.
What you wear under your dress is just as important as the dress itself. You want to take the time to find the right wedding shapewear that will help you look your best on your big day.
Some brides choose to some shapewear along to wear while trying on dresses. It can help you visualise what your dress will look like on the day, but you can always buy your wedding underwear closer to the day. It’s often best to buy several different styles of wedding underwear and go through some trial and error to find the right one for your dress and body type.
