The Best Bridal Undergarments To Hide Flaws - Every bride wants to look amazing on her big day, and that starts with the right foundation pieces tucked safely under her wedding dress.
Whether you’d like to slim your midsection, trim your thighs, or boost your bust, the world of beautiful lingerie offers endless options for whipping you into smooth and sleek shape for your wedding day.
So, banish body woes and embrace your most beautiful self with these top picks for bridal undergarments that will help your flaws disappear under your dress.
Create a flawless figure from the bust all the way down to the thighs when you choose a body shaping slip under your dress.
This is a great option for mermaid style gowns and styles that are fitted all the way down to the knees.
Your entire silhouette will be supported and hugged in, preventing any wiggle underneath your dress.
Keep your figure firmly in place and looking fit with a body sculpting slip that secures your curves from top to bottom.
Take advantage of a corset style dress and bridal undergarments to whittle your waist and eliminate the need for an extra undergarment beneath your dress.
A corset will give you the definition you need to create an hourglass figure and will give the illusion of a tiny waist when you pair this style with a full skirted princess style gown.
A corset hugs your back and torso all around so you can avoid bumps and bulges from every angle and put all of the focus on looking lovely.
Bra cups with gaps are something that small chested brides will want to avoid; otherwise you’ll look like you’re drowning in your dress.
If you’re not naturally blessed with the bust to fill out your gown, try a bra with enough padding to give you the boost you need.
Look for bras with the majority of the padding at the bottom of the cups, like a demi or balconette style that won’t interfere with the neckline of your dress.
If your dress has a plunging or sheer neckline, ask your seamstress to sew padded cups right into your dress to add oomph to a small bust without worrying about an exposed bra.
We adore the soft, romantic look of a silky smooth bias cut gown a la Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, but many brides tend steer clear of this style, thinking they don’t have the perfect shape to pull it off.
The trick to a flawless figure in this style lies in a great pair of control stockings that firm in your legs from your waist all the way down.
Footless styles are a great option for open toed shoes, without sacrificing the silhouette sculpting benefits of shapewear stockings.
Don’t rely on a bridal bra alone to give a large bust the lift it needs. A bustier is a much better choice as support starts well below the bust, hugging in your waist and torso to help boost up a large or sagging bust from the bottom up.
Even a strapless longline bra can lift up an ample chest with the additional support at the midsection, and a beautiful bustier will also define your waist and create an enviable hourglass shape that is sure to stun in any style of wedding dress.
