Demi Bras - Most of us aren’t blessed with a celebrity budget for splurging on beautiful bridal bras for our wedding day, but this doesn’t mean that you’re destined to a drawer full of dull brides lingerie.
We’re here to show you how to makeover your lingerie collection, starting with one of our favorites – the demi bra, all while getting the luxe look for less.
Stay within your budget in expensive looking bras that are actually affordable. Here’s how to get the exclusive look without the steep price tag.
Choose Lace - There’s just something about lace lingerie that oozes sophistication and luxury, regardless of how much it costs.
Lace is one of those classic beautiful lingerie fabrics that distracts us with its loveliness and can look well made and lavish even if doesn’t cost a lot.
How to get the look without spending a fortune? - Shop chain stores or mass retailers for lace demi bras and enjoy a high-end look on a modest budget.
Choose Classic Colors - Demi bras will look much more elegant and expensive if you opt for chic colors like nude, champagne, white, silver, or soft blush skin tones that are virtually invisible under your wedding dress.
Brash, bold colors like orange, fuchsia, lime, or neons tend to look trendier and not as posh as classic colors.
same applies to prints – think small-scale florals, delicate polka
dots, paisley and pinstripes instead of psychedelic flowers or wild
patterns. Save these bras and panty favorites for your wedding nite and honeymoon lingerie.
Buy Matching Panties - Nothing feels more indulgent than matching bra and panty sets. Whether you’re wearing them to show off on your wedding night, or just for yourself, we love the way luxury lingerie sets make us feel special.
How to get a luxe look? - Whatever demi or half bra you choose, regardless of the price tag, try to score a pair of matching panties to go with it.
In fact, buy several pairs of the underwear so you can get several wears out of the set before laundry day comes along. Slipping into a pretty lingerie set is a luxury that any bride can enjoy, no matter what her budget is.
Take Proper Care - Whether you decide to spend $10 or $10 000, it's easy to make affordable bridal bras and lingerie look and feel like a million bucks when you care for it properly.
How to care for beautiful lingerie? - Avoid the washing machine. Hand wash with a mild detergent, lay flat to dry, and store your lingerie without jamming or shoving them into an overstuffed drawer.
Creased bra cups, pilling straps, or faded fabrics make any half bra look tacky, no matter what you paid for it, and even the most modest bra can look sophisticated and elegant when you treat it like a precious piece.
