Choosing The Perfect Lingerie For Your Wedding Dress

Wrong wedding lingerie can really ruin the gorgeous look of your wedding gown, and though this might sound a bit weird and simultaneously scary, it is a 100% true. Shopping for bras and underwear may not be that exciting, but you should not ignore the importance of these inner-wears. When it comes to bridal fashion, the last things which most of the ladies focus on is the avoidance of any visible straps, lines or lumps. To help you find the right wedding lingerie, here is a quick guide on how, when, and what to buy.

When should you shop?

Do not ever try to buy lingerie before you buy a bridal gown from an online Sydney shop. You can understand what type of under garments you need once you wear the dress that you are going to rock on your wedding day. Make sure that you don’t do anything to lose your weight just before the final day. It can really affect the fit of your bra.

How to select a bra?

Check whether you really need a bra or not. Bridal gowns that are structured up to the top may give enough support and shaping which can exclude the need for bras. But if you are busty enough and want more support, you can choose to have a bra or corset sewn inside the gown. This trick helps a lot with strapless silhouettes and tricky necklines.

But, if you are really looking for an extra coverage, a bra may not the best choice. A stick-on piece can the best seamless look in such a situation.

Types of underwear

Well the type you need, of course, depends on your dress. Basically, there are three options out there, classic, shapewear and seamless.

Classic: Brides can have fun with lingerie when wedding dresses are voluminous with thick fabrics. Classic style does not have a specific rule. You can wear whatever you want, just make sure that there is enough room beneath the dress.

Shapewear: Consider to go for a strategic shapewear when your dress highlights a specific body part. You do not have to stick to those nude-coloured bike shorts as today, there are numerous beautiful options available when it comes to shapewear.

Seamless: Dresses which are slim, fitted or made up of a single layer of material need an underwear that is smooth and flat. Even if it has a lace, make sure that it is smooth and transparent. The market is filled with seamless underwear having transparent laces.

Just keep in mind that whatever underwear you shop for, it must fit onto your body ideally. A loose one can give an airy effect, while a tight one can make you feel uncomfortable.

Are the choices for bridesmaids ideal?

The best idea is to let her greet the guests as this task does not require much engagement.

Is the bridesmaid helpful?

Getting Familiar With The Wedding Dress Lingo

wedding dress
The world of wedding dresses is an intricate labyrinth of cuts, fabrics, silhouettes and designs that are not known an astounding number of brides-to-be. In order to shop for the right thing, it is important for you to have a basic idea of the wedding dress lingo. So here are explanations of a few things shared by retailers of wedding dresses in Sydney:

Bodice — The upper portion of a bridal gown excluding the sleeves. It is quite similar to a corset, except for the fact that it is meant to be worn visibly. On the other hand, a corset is worn beneath the gown.

Organza — Generally prepared by using synthetic fabrics to blend silk, an organza retains many characteristics of silk — smoothness, sheerness and lightweight. Due to being stiff, it is utilised commonly for making fuller skirts, which are a part of wedding dresses.

Silk Mikado — Since this particular silk blend is quite heavy, it is preferred popularly for winter bridal gowns. Besides that, it also serves as a fantastic component for structured dresses.

Train — The train usually forms the extreme bottom part of a wedding dress, and trails behind the wearer. It comes in a wide variety of options to choose from — fishtail that flares out beneath the knee & beyond, cathedral which begins from the waist, and so on.

Boning — A common part of strapless bridal gowns, this feature prevents the bodice of a dress from drooping.

Bustle — A bustle is normally recommended for a wedding dress with a lengthy train. It helps the bride to walk around freely, without creating a trip hazard for her.

Taffeta — Originally a Persian term meaning ‘twisted woven’, the taffeta is quite similar to an organza, since it is prepared out of silk and also looks like it. However, the feel of a taffeta is much more textured, which is why it’s ideal for ball gown silhouettes.

Illusion Back — A panel made using lace and attached behind the bodice to impart a strikingly attractive appeal.

Crepe — A type of fabric which has a unique grainy or distinctively crimped surface. It is preferred by dress makers for creating beautiful drapery.

Guipure Lace — Handmade lace that features motifs connected via plaits instead of net or mesh.
So next time that you are at a wedding retail shop, trying on different dresses, you won’t feel completely lost when the salesperson uses these words while helping you pick the best gown for yourself
