Guide to Buying Bridal Lingerie
Getting married is an important and exciting time in every lady’s life. And with so much on your “to do” list to make sure your day goes smoothly, it can be easy to overlook the importance of buying the right lingerie for your big day. The last thing you should have to worry about on your wedding day is the comfort and fit of your lingerie. But with some pre-planning and a trip to your local lingerie store, you’ll be well on your way to a care free day.
And when it comes to fitting, getting advice from a lingerie expert is essential.
Fit for a princess
Whether choosing a bra to give you shape and lift under your sleeved gown or a strapless bra or basque to give you that extra bit of support and smooth lines under your corseted dress, you need to make sure the fit is just right.
Most lingerie shops offer a free fitting service to ensure your lingerie is the correct size, shape, colour and fit. Some stores also offer after hours “bridal party nights” where brides and bridesmaids can be measured in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere by professional fitting staff.
A match made in heaven
Once you’ve chosen your new bra for your wedding day, you’ll want to complete the set with matching briefs. The style of the briefs you buy is down to your own personal choice, but don’t be afraid to experiment with trying on different styles as, these days, there’s such a lot on offer.

And to complete your bridal lingerie, your local lingerie store will also stock lacy garters, suspender belts and stockings in a range of styles, sizes and colours.
Picking the perfect colour
From traditional white to subtle shades of peach, ivory, pale blue and light pink, your pretty new lingerie is available in an array of colours. The variety of colours available ensures that there’s a shade available to suit every skin tone. Ask your lingerie store assistant to help you pick out the right colour for you.
With your wedding day lingerie chosen, you may think that you’ve managed to cross another item off your “to do” list. But it’s equally as important to think about your wedding night and honeymoon lingerie too.
After the wedding
Your wedding day may have ended but your wedding night is a special occasion where you want to look your best for your new husband. Treat yourself to a stunning new negligee from designer brands such as Marjolaine or Jonquil. Sumptuous silk with delicate lace trim makes every girl feel like a glamorous film star. Negligees can also be teamed with a pretty matching gown to complete your wedding night attire.
And for the honeymoon, there’s a whole range of lingerie and nightwear available to make you feel sensational. By investing in a few key pieces of luxury you’ll feel like a million dollars on your wedding day and beyond. Buying something special means you can always rekindle those wonderful memories of your wedding night and your honeymoon every time you wear it.
So go on, indulge yourself with some stunning lingerie that you’ll both enjoy.
