Choosing the right bridal underwear

It is probably not the first thing you think about for your wedding day, and it might not be the second or third, but choosing the right bridal underwear for your big day is really important. This could be because of the style of dress you have chosen or the extra confidence the right lingerie gives you. In this post, we’re going to talk you through the different underwear choices you are likely to have to make, and some advice on the best options for you.

Comfort is going to be an important factor on the day, to make sure you feel beautiful, sexy, comfortable and well-supported. Don’t worry about trying to find that piece of lingerie that combines everything we’ve mentioned. A lot of brides opt for a second set of underwear for their wedding night. This means if you can choose control wear for the daytime and wear something a little sexier in the evening.


Basque 1

Corset/Basque – A fantastic option to smooth, shape and support you. There are so many pretty options available, so you can pick the style and colour for you. Great to give support in a strapless dress, especially if your cup size is over a C.

Ivette Bra 1

If you’ve fallen in love with a wedding dress with straps then we would recommend choosing a bra with straps for comfort and support. You can still get great support with a multi-way bra, but there’s the added bonus of having strapless and halter neck options.

Controlwear 1

Tight-fitting gowns – Gowns that are slim-fitting or made of a single layer of material will require smooth underwear. You don’t want a VPL on your wedding day! Depending on the material and individual fit you might want to consider nude lingerie with some control element so you feel held in and looking your best!



Backless gowns – A fabulous wedding gown feature, backless dresses look fabulous in photographs, you just have to make sure you’ve got the right support. Stick on bras offer well-hidden support and work well with different necklines and backless dresses. Just make sure your skin is completely dry before applying.
