Best Wedding Bras: A Guide to Your Bridal Underwear

  • Occasions

It’s officially wedding season, so what better way to celebrate than with a guide to your bridal underwear? I'll talk you through lingerie before, during and after your big day - everything you need to know!

Congrats! You’re getting married. Now for the most important day of your life… 

So, you want your wedding lingerie to look good, but more importantly, support and flatter you where you need it. Preparation is key: let’s start with what to do when you’re on the hunt for your dress.

Before: What Should I Wear to try on Wedding Dresses?

There’s three key things to remember when thinking about what lingerie you should wear to try on your potential wedding dresses: wearing a bra that is the right size, wearing something strapless or with detachable straps, and wearing something with no visible outlines.

Firstly, and this sounds obvious, make sure that you’re wearing a bra that is the right size. No matter the dress style you opt for, it isn’t going to fit you properly if you’re wearing the wrong size bra. Having the right bra is like a good omen: a good bra will lead you to a good dress.

Wear a strapless bra (or one with detachable straps) and cover your bases. Whether you’ve decided on a dress with straps or not, having a good, supportive strapless bra is going to help in both instances. A nude strapless bra is your best bet. You’ve got so many decisions to make with your dress, so by opting for underwear that not only supports you, but blends with your body, you’re going to help make the fitting process as smooth as possible. This should ideally be invisible too, so you're not left with any lines under the dresses you try.

If the bra works with your dress, it could end up being the one you choose to wear on your wedding day, so it’s really important that you’ve got something you like and that feels right. The same applies to your knickers. You want something that’s going to keep you comfortable for a busy day, but won’t leave you with visible panty lines. Luckily, we’ve got a great selection of no VPL briefs to help you out.

During: The Perfect Wedding Lingerie

Now for the most important part. You’ve found a dress and you can think about what’s going to go underneath it. The good news is this process is pretty similar to selecting underwear for dress shopping, although you might want to spice it up a bit more.

What Underwear to Wear Under Wedding Dress

What bridal underwear you choose is completely down to you…r dress. You might choose a structured wedding gown and have a smaller cup size, and in which case, you can go braless! But realistically, most of us are going to want or need a bra under a wedding dress.

What Bra Should be Worn Under a Wedding Dress?

The answer is a strapless bra. If you’ve gone for a traditional wedding dress, it makes sense to go for a nude or white bra. Your bra should be there to support you and flatter you, so the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and covered.

Remember these words: strapless is safe. The same thing applies here as it does when dress shopping, so unless you’ve found a style of dress that offers you complete lingerie freedom, you’re probably going to want to stick to a strapless bra.

Bridal Knickers

Here’s where you’ve got a bit more freedom. Whilst I’d still recommend something seam-free, you could always choose something a bit more fun and playful. Check out our Freya Offbeat collection, which features gorgeous designs in some lighter shades.

After: The Ultimate Wedding Night Lingerie

You did it! The day is over… And now to the night. You don’t have to worry about how your bridal underwear is going to look under your dress anymore, and you can focus on feeling absolutely incredible. Ask yourself, what do I feel good in? The answer is what you should purchase for your wedding night. Confidence is the key to making a beautiful bridal underwear set shine.
