What Should I Wear Underneath My Wedding Dress
Article by: Pat Giuliano

Brides often ask me this question, and it is something that is often overlooked, but shouldn't be. The right underwear worn under your wedding dress is vital to ensure the perfect fit of your dress. More often than not, women don't give enough consideration to the foundation garments they ought to wear under their wedding dress, leaving it to the last minute and then buying something inappropriate to the style of the dress. There are many factors to consider. I've listed a few tips below to help you with the search to the right foundation garments.

I recommend that you buy the best lingerie that you can afford, as it will certainly make a difference to the overall look of your dress. Of course, the underwear you choose should be appropriate to the style of your dress. For example, if your dress has a corseted bodice, you should have a full torsolette underneath to give the proper support to the dress. You may choose to have a supportive bra and knickers instead, but I feel that a full torsolette gives a much smoother and even line, especially under a fitted bodice. If your dress is a softer flowing style, you may opt for a supportive bra and knickers, however keep in mind that you don't want any lines to show through. A strapless dress will require very supportive foundation garments, to hold up the dress as well as maintain the correct look of the dress. In this case, a torsolette would also be appropriate.

Lacy bras are lovely to look at, but can result in ridges showing on the outside of a dress (depending on the thickness of the fabric), thus a smooth satin bra is probably a better choice.

The best advice is to go to a leading lingerie store and be professionally fitted by an expert. Tell her what the style of your dress is, so she can advise you correctly.

Remember that foundation garments, such as torsolettes, are of paramount importance to the perfect fit of your wedding dress – the most important dress you will ever wear.
