Bridal Nightgowns - How To Get It Right

Bridal Nightgowns - Though it's one of the happiest times - you're marrying the love of your life - when you’re planning a wedding it’s one of the busiest times in your life.

With a to-do list that seems endless - wedding dress, hair, make-up, flowers and jewelry, etc., the list can seem overwhelming.

And, while it may be tempting to skip a step and buy your bridal lingerie without trying it on, it’s always in your best interest to carve out a few extra moments to slip into the fitting room before making a purchase, especially when it comes to bridal nightgowns. 

Here’s why you should try before you buy.

Bridal Nightgowns - The Fundamentals

The No Return Policy

Most lingerie shops have a strict policy when it comes to returning and exchanging any intimate apparel. It’s not uncommon for bras, panties, and sleepwear to be non-refundable.

In some cases a store credit or exchange may be allowed, but getting your money back usually isn't an option.

The only way to prevent getting stuck with an item that doesn’t work is to make sure to try it on before you buy.

Even if it's a quick try-on, you'll feel better and avoid disappointment or worse, buyer's remorse down the line.

Shopping For Bridal Lingerie Guarantees Confidence

Taking the extra time to try a bridal nightgown on before you buy it is the best way to ensure that you’re wearing a piece that you love, that feels totally comfortable, and that fits and flatters your figure to perfection.

An ill-fitting nightie that you didn’t try on will make you feel awkward and uncomfortable when you slip it on for your sweetie, and no one wants to feel tat way on their special day.

Wearing a beautiful bridal nightie will give you the killer confidence you need to look your very best and lets you focus on the mood and romance instead of your lingerie.

Beautiful Lingerie Tip

Opt for intimate apparel that fits your personality and fabrics that flatter your shape. Ask yourself, are you a sexy coquette or a cool sophisticate?

Romantic Sleepwear Offers A Stunning Look

Trying on a wedding nightgown before you buy it lets you find the perfect option for a gorgeous romantic look that will dazzle.

Sometimes you’ll need to go up or down a size to find the best fit, or a style that you thought would be lovely isn’t quite as nice as it seems once you’re wearing it.

A three way fitting room mirror gives you a complete view from all angles, which you can only get when you try a piece on in the store.

This allows you to identify the nuances of the ideal fit and style from a selection of bridal nightgowns, and try until you find what works for you.

  • A sexy coquette will be drawn to beautiful lingerie in lace and fine mesh like a see through nightgown or chemise with side slits.
  • The cool sophisticate loves elegant form fitting styles like a romantic satin nightgown in satin or a sleek A line silk nightgown with just a hint of lace.

You'll Want To Wear Your Nightgown Again

Why invest in a nightgown that ends up being something that you’re not crazy about, only to have it end up at the bottom of your lingerie drawer once the honeymoon is over?

It’s a much more economical and enjoyable option to take the time to score the perfectly fitting and flattering bridal nightgown that makes you feel beautiful, and has you counting down until you wear it again.

Re-create the romance of your wedding again and again when you buy a bridal nightgown that you’ve tried on and are sure that you love.

Did You Know?

Soft creams and whites are traditional bride and honeymoon lingerie colors. Classic creamy or white bridal lingerie symbolizes purity, simplicity, and innocence.

Intimate Apparel - What Looks Good May Not Feel Great

There’s no way to tell if lace will be itchy, underwire will dig in, beading will be scratchy, or other elements of a nightie will be uncomfortable until you can feel it against your skin.

Until you try it on, you’re relying only on looks, and we all know that lingerie can feel totally different when you’re actually wearing it.

Make sure you look and feel your most glamorous and special when you give it a try before bringing it home to avoid any surprises.

Insider Tip

Avoid coarse fabrics and styles that pull, pinch, scratch or aren't comfortable. Look for lingerie materials and trims that are smooth to the touch. Silk and satin nightgowns are soft on the skin and ideal for those romantic moments.
