Now that you’ve found your dream dress for your wedding, what will you wear underneath? A great piece of shapewear can help you feel more supported while also smoothing out any imperfections or lines caused by your undergarments. Whether you’re going strapless or opting for a plunging neckline, here are a few of our best tips for choosing the best shapewear for your wedding dress.
If you’re planning on wearing shapewear under your dress, it’s best to plan ahead and not wait until the last minute to find something that fits. Be sure to also wear your shapewear while dress shopping so you know how it will fit and look underneath. This will ensure that any alterations will be correct as well since your dress may fit differently without shapewear.
Skip the Separates
For those who’d like to skip the separates, a bodysuit is a great alternative. Not only are they versatile, but they’ll also slim all areas with one simple piece of shapewear. When searching for the perfect bodysuit, be sure to check the compression and necklines so it doesn’t peak out of your dress.
Your choice of bra is perhaps the most important piece of shapewear. Depending on your dress’ neckline, you’ll have a variety of bra styles to choose from such as strapless, plunging, backless and more. We recommend finding a bra that matches your wedding dress color rather than your skin tone in case of any slips. Be sure to try on a variety of different bras during your dress fitting as well to see what works best.
Know Your Fabric
One of the mistakes we often see brides make is not choosing the correct fabric for your shapewear. We recommend opting for seamless underwear to be sure there are no lines seen through the dress. They’ll also create a smoothing effect and won’t dig into your skin. If you don’t want to wear separates, a silk slip will also create the same smooth illusion.
