Your wedding lingerie checklist
During the trousseau shopping, many brides forget a very important aspect – the lingerie. As every girl knows, well-fitting, pretty innerwear gives you the confidence to take on the world! Read on for the essentials that no bridal trousseau would be complete without.
Lingerie essentials can be divided into two categories-
- Wedding day lingerie
Peeking straps or ill-fitted underwear can ruin the look of the most expensive outfit so ensure you buy the correct type of lingerie according to your outfit & body type
- Well-fitted, color coordinated bra & panty sets that match your wedding dress
- Backless bras & low-back bra converter for low-back blouses
- Nude-colored lingerie instead of white. The closer the color is to your skin tone, the less it will be revealed by the pesky flash of the photographer!
- Built-in bras in your sari blouses are a great option & will save you from many an adjustment hassles
- Turn to the Spanx gods & buy good-quality shape wear for smoothing out any problem areas like the tummy or thighs
- Fashion tape for keeping it all together & for any last-minute quick fixes. These little babies do a great job without leaving any marks on or damaging your outerwear
- An extra set to avoid last minute running around in case of mishaps.
- Wedding night & honeymoon lingerie
Be adventurous while buying lingerie for the wedding night and honeymoon & experiment with different styles, cuts & colors.
- Stock up on different styles like thongs, G-strings, bikini-cuts, demi cups, French-cut boy shorts…the list is endless!
- Lace-trimmed bras & sheer bottoms that show just the right amount of skin. A little peek-a-boo is a big turn-on for men
- Satins & silks are the most popular fabrics (no surprises there) for their sensual appeal. Add lace trimmings, bow ties, ribbons & bows for a dainty, sophisticated look
- Wear different styles like Babydolls, corsets, chemises, Bustiers, garter belts & pick his jaw off the floor
- Coordinated robes
- Edible lingerie-the latest entrant in the club & guaranteed to turn things steamy in no time!
- In case of a beach destination, make sure to buy flattering swimwear & cover-ups
