Bridal lingerie for a wedding night to remember
You've picked out the dress, you've chosen the shoes – now all you need is a spectacular set of bridal lingerie. Your wedding night is going to be one of the most special nights of your life, so make sure your underwear is ready to sizzle! You'll need to buy new lingerie for this magical occasion. Make sure it matches: even if you never bother to match your regular bras and panties, this is going to be a night to remember. This is a night to be extravagant. Go wild with lace, ribbons and other embellishments if you like – after all, you may only get one chance to wear these pieces!
How to choose your lingerie
Your bridal lingerie will probably be white, or a similar shade. If you're concerned that pure white will wash out your complexion, look for a different colour that's slightly warmer. That could be off-white, ivory, cream, or even light rose. For a truly special touch, try to match the shade exactly to your wedding dress. If you can't do this, look for details that echo between your dress and your underwear. For example, if you have pearls on the dress, look for a set of lingerie with them, too. When choosing your lingerie, make sure that it's appropriate for your dress. It shouldn't be visible in any way, so you may need to go for a strapless or halter-neck bra, and make sure that your panties fit well, without digging in. If you plan to wear shapewear under your dress, you might want to get a separate set of lingerie to change into when the party's over!
Bridal underwear for a special touch
To be traditional, your wedding lingerie should include a garter belt. This is a great excuse to wear the special pieces that you don't usually bother with on a daily basis. A cute, flirty teddy is a great choice for your wedding night. It has the added bonus of giving you a little more coverage, which is ideal if you feel a bit self-conscious! Often, the best underwear is not that skimpy. Instead, it covers a little more, making it ideal for showing off details like lace panels. Try experimenting with a longline bra and a pair of silky French knickers, rather than going for a simple thong or plain briefs – bridal lingerie should always be special!
