The purchase of bridal lingerie can be the most important intimate apparel purchase of a woman’s life. Whether she is looking for bridal foundations to go underneath her bridal gown, or if she is looking for something special for her wedding night, finding the perfect bridal lingerie can be a challenge.
Bridal lingerie generally falls into two categories: foundations and wedding night lingerie. Foundations go beneath the bridal gown and are meant to give the perfect outer look while still providing adequate support and structure for the wearer. Bustiers are ideal for many brides because they are mostly strapless, and so go great under strapless and spaghetti strap bridal gowns. They can also be purchased with a lower back, for those who choose backless or low cut gowns. One of the major benefits of a bustier is cleavage. It lifts and separates for a perfect bust line on that special day. Corsets are also great for the bride who needs a little extra tummy controls. Many corsets also function like bustiers in the breast department, though they can certainly be found with simple molded or lace cups for those who don’t want the extra support. Shapers can also provide slimming in the stomach, bun, and thighs for brides for whom those are problem areas.
Wedding night lingerie is the most special lingerie you will ever buy. It comes many of the same styles and fabrics as regular lingerie, and you’ll find everything from nightgowns to teddies to corset and stocking sets. Most bridal lingerie is white in color to provide that hint of innocence, which still preserving your sex appeal for your special night. It can be bought at almost any lingerie specialty store, however, for best selection and prices, shopping through a lingerie party or online retailer is also recommended.
