Bridal lingerie comes in three main forms – bustier, corset and Basque. Bustier, similar to bra, is boned and lengthened to the waist. It trims the bride’s midriff. Corset form is there mainly for brides wearing strapless gowns. The Basque form supports breasts, and includes suspenders to trim the abdominal area.
Popular lingerie styles include satin jacquard corset, satin lace garter belts, soft net chemise, under wire baby doll, and lace long line bustier. If you want to wear a fancy garter belt with hooks to hold up thigh-high hose, make sure you choose one that fits snugly around your waist – and won’t be seen through your gown! A sexy all-in-one body combo with lacy suspenders, knickers and lace topped stockings is a very seductive combination. A negligee is probably the classic choice for your wedding night, but a sexy chemise or baby doll set with matching thong or g-string is a great sexy alternative.
Pantyhose are also ideal for sheath wedding dresses, which lend themselves to showing panty lines more easily than other styles of wedding dresses. Regardless of which type of bridal hosiery is worn, a backup pair should always be within reach. Sheer hose tend to snag easily, causing unsightly holes and runs in the stockings. There is one more problem with hosiery, the pressure of the hose can pull an inexpensive, elastic garter belt downward, leading to wrinkly knees and an evening of endless attempts to hitch up your hose.
Choosing the appropriate color and shape of the bridal lingerie is another vital thing of great concern. Such things as color and shape basically depend on your bridal gown and your body shape. Popular colors for wedding lingerie are nude and white. Sometimes there are blushing pink accents, but overall, it’s suited for the traditional white and ivory gowns. If you choose a strapless or an off-the-shoulder bridal gown, select a bustier or corset type lingerie.
If you choose a halter-style or backless bridal gown, then an adhesive bra is good for you. For some other dresses, such as one that laces up the back and shows some skin, select lingerie that takes up minimal area. Luckily, bridal lingerie is available in both normal and plus sizes that’s why it’s not very hard to choose a suitable wedding set for a fill-figured lady.
After all, it’s your wedding night and your choice! So pick whatever color and style you love best. Just make sure that whatever you choose, you pick something you feel confident in – there’s nothing sexier than looking and feeling confident in your lingerie!
