One of the most fequently asked questions by our brides is what underwear should they wear with their dress. The correct answer will always depend on the style of the gown.
If your dress is the slinky kind, you will need the shape underwear pictured right, as it will smooth out all your lumps and bumps. Remember when choosing this type of underwear to consider which part of your figure you would like to smooth out the most. The choice can be quite bewildering, but try to keep it simple by considering the following questions :
How firm do you want the hold to be? The Body wrap underwear that we sell is conveniently divided into two categories, lite and regular. Just depends on how strongly you think you need to be held in, only you know!
Where do you need the most hold? Think carefully about your gown, and where the seams are. You want to have as few horizontal lines as possible across your figure in order to create a long line, so choose underwear that will end with the seams on your dress. Many bias cut dresses, for example, have a seam at the bust, which is why so many brides opt for the high waist on their smooth underwear.

If your wedding gown is more stuctured and has a bodice, you will be looking for more traditional bridal underwear. For most a strapless bra or a bustier is sufficient, this will depend on how much support the bodice in your gown already offers.
Don’t forget that you do not have to restrict yourself to one set of underwear for the big day. You may have to opt for something sensible during the day, but there is nothing to stop you buying yourself a set of underwear that you love for the night! See Va Bien Underwear at High Society Bride.
