Love is in the air and Kate and Wills have kicked off the wedding season with their nuptials. If you are getting ready for your wedding you will want to feel like a princess from head to toe. Here is our guide to picking the correct lingerie for your big day.
1. Bandeau Style
There are two options for the bandeau style dress. Brides usually head straight towards a traditional strapless bra but depending on the dress you could look at a basque. Not only are basques more glamorous they also stay firmly in place so you don’t have to worry about it slipping. If the dress is not structured you will need to make sure the basque lines don’t show through.
The bra you choose will depend on how low the back of the dress is. If it’s a sccop back and low at the front you will have to look at stick on cups or breast petals but if you can go without anything that maybe the best idea after all it’s not the most glamarous look when you de-robe. If the back is higher you could try a convertible bra with a plunge front like the Marie Jo Avero Mulitway bra. Just ensure the straps follow the line of the dress and don’t stick out.
Many dresses are very structured and the bodice is boned and laced up the back. Usually this boning will provide enough support so you can go without a bra. If you decide to wear a bra you may end up feeling constricted and uncomfortable.
A normal bra can be worn with the dress. The key considerations are will the straps follow the same line as the dress straps and whether to choose a smooth or lace cup. If the dress is clingy a underwired body is a great solution to make sure you have a smooth line. The Marie Jo Jane body is a good choice if you want a smooth look that doesn’t look utilitarian.
