It’s the most special time in a woman’s life, from finally finding the perfect man, picking the perfect dress and zeroing on your dream venue, it’s as good as it gets. But hey, don’t forget to pick the perfect lingerie before you embark on this beautiful journey into forever.
Contrary to popular belief, the term ‘bridal lingerie’ does not just hold for what you’d wear on your first night, rather it encompasses a sizeable part of your bridal trousseau.
Indian weddings are long (to say the least) and the wrong lingerie will not only ruin your outfit completely but will also leave you feeling uncomfortable all through the event. And you certainly wouldn’t want such a thing to happen on your wedding day or any of the events that come before or after.
While you plan and plan to pick out the perfect outfits, hairstyle and makeup to suit those outfits, making sure your lingerie is on fleek is absolutely essential. Picking the right colours, silhouettes and fabrics is crucial. From the right match for your wedding outfit to staples and must-haves in your brand new wardrobe, here are a few tips you need for picking out the perfect pieces.
1. Don’t Wait!
Putting off purchasing your wedding lingerie until the last minute is an absolute NO-NO. We suggest picking out the lingerie as soon as you are done with your first fitting.
2. Try it On.
Remember to try on your outfit and lingerie a few days prior to the wedding day… hormones and stress can cause changes in your size, so always be sure. You DO NOT want to wake up to a not so happy surprise on your big day.
3. Mind your Cleavage.
Keep your neckline in mind when choosing the lingerie for your events. If your cocktail gown is strapless, consider a strapless or multiway bra or if your lehenga has a sweetheart neckline choose a delight lace bra. The lingerie has to fit the neckline of the outfit so as to avoid any untoward slips.
4. Fresh and Light!
Many of your outfits during the wedding and post will require you to wear lingerie that is comfy for long hours. Choose Cotton Bras or the amanté Aloe Fresh Bra for those long hours as these styles are designed to keep you fresh all day!
5. Match Made in Heaven.
Make sure that your trousseau has a good mix of bridal lingerie, babydolls or chemise, a matching robe, lace camisoles and matching shorts. And remember to choose lingerie that matches your outfits and blends with the silhouettes. Whether you’re honeymooning in the tropics or somewhere cold, choose wisely.
