Brides put so much thought into what they will wear on their wedding day… it’s all about the dress, isn’t it!? ? But what about what you’ll wear underneath? Depending on the style of your gown, and the coverage and support you need, you may need to put a little extra thought into what type of bra or lingerie you’ll want to wear under your dress on your big day.
There’s definitely a few different factors to keep in mind when shopping for your wedding day undergarments:
- 1. Comfort : You’re likely going to be wearing your dress and coordinating undergarments for 8+ hours on your wedding day. Choose a bra and panty set that is soft and comfortable for long hours of wear.
- 2. Support : It’s important to find the proper fit that supports you and your girls all day long. You want to choose something well-fitting so you won’t be pulling it up or adjusting it all day long.
- 3. Prettiness : Let’s face it… we all want to wear something pretty on our wedding day (and night) am I right? Finding something that fits the bill of comfort and support, while also looking feminine and sexy can be somewhat of a tall order.
- 4. No-Show : Last but not least, you want to find a bra that hides seamlessly underneath your gown for a classy and un-rumpled look. Some styles can cause bumps, lumps, and protrusions through your gown, so keep an eye out and be sure to try your bra on with your dress at all your fittings!
Lucky for all of you brides-to-be, there’s a host of wonderful new options from my *favorite* lingerie brand: ThirdLove! They’ve recently launched a brand-new bridal collection and it is just as comfortable, supportive, and lovely as their popular favorites.
Ever since the first time I tried on a ThirdLove Bra, I’ve been hooked. Their bras are quite honestly the most well-fitted and comfortable bras I’ve ever put on my body. The major difference is their half-cup sizing!! I recently lost a bit of weight (about 20 lbs) and had to get new bras to fit my new shape. I used the ThirdLove FitFinder quiz and determined that I had gone from a 34D to a 32D 1/2!
This new size fits me to perfection. I actually had been shopping in one of the popular mall chains for a bra earlier that week and was frustrated to find myself stuck between two sizes. The 32DD gaped a bit too much at the top and the 32D had a bit of spillage. ThirdLove came to the rescue with the perfect sizing for my bust. ThirdLove kindly sent me their new Bridal Essentials Wardrobe, the Lace Balconette in Periwinkle for something blue, and a 2-pack of the Lace Cheeky underwear. They all fit like a dream, and even though I exchanged my “I do’s” many years ago, these pieces are comfy and lovely enough to wear any day of the week for a little dose of pretty! My personal favorite is the 24/7™ Classic Lace Strapless Bra in Sea Salt — this bra will be your go-to on the big day, especially if you’re wearing a strapless dress or one with slim straps. This bra has an ultra comfortable body-hugging fit that won’t slip or slide. Dancing until 2am? Not a problem in this bra.
These pieces are as comfortable to wear as they are breathtaking to behold. Being a bride often entails so much more than just walking down the aisle: there’s the engagement party, the bachelorette, the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner, the big day, and the honeymoon. This collection works for all of the many parts of being a bride and beyond. The fun shouldn’t stop once all the guests have gone home, so each of these pieces can be worn again and again; a bit of versatility that can bring back all those fun memories!
ThirdLove’s Bridal Collection is made up of beautiful, classic pieces that fit perfectly and keep you unbelievably comfortable so you can be your radiant, confident self— from the engagement party to your honeymoon. ThirdLove believes that moments matter, and they don’t want you to miss a moment of your wedding because you’re distracted by your bra. It’s a perfect union: timeless beauty and nonstop comfort! Your wedding is one of the biggest moments of your life, and you deserve to feel comfortable all day long. Be sure to consider ThirdLove for your wedding day bra… it will totally become your EVERY day bra!
