Last thing you want to be doing is adjusting your lingerie every five minutes. So, here are few very simple tips to keep in mind while you shop for lingerie.
WHEN TO SHOP :
Lingerie shopping is not something you do in the last-minute. Make sure you go for lingerie shopping right after you have got your wedding gown / wedding blouse stitched. It is important that your lingerie goes well with your wedding dress be it the colour or fabric. It needs the same amount of time and patience you spent choosing your wedding attire. Don’t shy away from trying out different styles of lingerie. Pick up what works best with the wedding dress. Try as many as you can before deciding on what to buy.
SHOPPING CAMPANION :
This is when your bridesmaid or girlfriend should step in. They will give the right suggestion and honest opinion especially when you are confused. And another plus is that shopping with a friend is always more fun than doing it alone. Some women feel it is best to take their fiancé along for lingerie shopping. It works well for some but for others the whole surprise element comes to play.
SIZE MATTERS :
No one likes the idea of looking bulky or squished, gasping for air in the lingerie. Always choose the right size. Don’t opt for sizes that are too loose or too tight, they don’t deliver the impact you have intended it to do. Ill fitting underthings will not only look bad, but may give you rashes.Explore a lot of options, but be wise and choose the ones that fit you properly.If you are following a weight loss plan then you may want to buy your lingerie once you are close to reaching the goal,or else it will be too loose. Get a professional help if needed as they will help you pick up the right size.
BE COMFORTABLE :
Almost every Indian weddings are long.Therefore a bride needs to be comfortable in her wedding dress.Always opt for satin and silk for bridal lingerie as they are very comfortable.Completely avoid going for any bra with annoying wires that might stab into your side.Remember, Comfort is more important than sexiness during your ceremony and sexiness can always be saved for the wedding night 😉
Go for shape wear if you have hassles with your figure.You will need one that can smooth and pull in your problem area, like your lower stomach.But this is possible only if you are wearing a tummy-baring outfit. Body slimmers can work miracles when it comes to shaping your body.Slimmers use lycra or spandex to flatten flab and create a flattering silhouette beneath your dress.They are easily available online or in any lingerie store.
Always try your bridal lingerie well before your wedding day just to make sure it fits properly.Sit down in it,bend over in it or even dance in it! Make sure they are extremely comfortable.
DIFFERENT KINDS :
- Look for a strapless bra or bandeau if you are wearing a strapless wedding dress.
- Look for a backless bra that hooks at the waist if you have a backless gown or a low back blouse!
- If you have big bust, avoid styles like push up, cross back, halter neck and strapless.
- Say a complete NO-No to lingerie made up of thick lace or heavily textured.
- Always match your lingerie with the color of your wedding dress. Otherwise, it may show through the fabric.
- Add blouse pads instead of going for plastic bra straps if you are wearing an open-styled blouse.
