Bridal Lingerie: Nuptial Bra & Knickers

The lingerie under a wedding dress is like the primer you apply before makeup – you may not see it but it’s there, and it makes all the difference.

Each bride will opt for a certain neckline, and the bra an essential factor in this decision. Deciding what type of neckline you want before-hand can make the process of finding the perfect dress a lot easier, as you can purchase the bra ahead of time and get a better idea of how a dress will fit.

Finally, don’t overlook the importance of knickers! A fuller skirt may allow you to get away with a Brazilian brief, but a sheath or mermaid gown almost always requires a seamless thong. A VPL in a wedding dress is a disaster, so be sure to come to your dress fittings armed with a selection of wedding-worthy knickers.

Boux Lounge Lace High-leg Brazilian in Cream, £14
