Whenever you read about wedding dress fittings, they always tell you to wear the lingerie or undergarments to the fitting that you plan to wear with your wedding dress. But, how are you supposed to know what to choose? There are some simple tips that will help you choose the perfect bridal lingerie.
Tight or Form-Fitting Dresses
If you’re planning to wear a form fitting dress, such as a mermaid-style dress or something similar, then you’re going to want to go with a special sort of lingerie. The reason is that if you wear a form-fitting dress, it’s really easy to see the lines of your lingerie. Therefore, you’ll need something specifically created for a form-fitting dress.
If you’re wearing a dress that shows your curves but you want to hide imperfections, you’re going to want to go with a control type lingerie. Typically, this is a snug sort of lingerie that hides any extra pounds that you don’t want to show in your wedding dress.
If you’re wearing a dress with a full skirt, you might want to wear lingerie that helps your waist become smaller or look smaller. You can do this with a corset or a waist-cinching lingerie. Typically, you won’t need anything special for below the waist as this will all be hidden anyway.
When you know the style of dress you want to wear, you can then determine the sort of undergarments and bridal lingerie you need. This HerRoom infographic will help you determine exactly the sort of bridal lingerie that will work best for the type of dress you’ve chosen.
