How to choose perfect wedding lingerie as a gift


With all of the planning and obsessing that goes into your big day, wedding lingerie is one little detail that can get overlooked. You're so busy choosing just the right dress, veil, and hairdo that sometimes it's hard to remember that there are some basic foundation pieces that need to go underneath the chiffon and tulle. You'll probably feel more beautiful than you ever have before on this special day, and that feeling should extend all the way down to your sexy bridal lingerie.

Wedding lingerie can take a couple of different forms. First of all, there's the garments that you will wear during the wedding itself. These will be based on both your taste and the style of wedding dress that you choose. Let's say you have a strapless gown. If that's the case, then you're going to need a strapless bra or bustier to give your bust lift and shape. Some brides opt for a corset so that they can achieve just the silhouette they desire.

When choosing a bra or bustier, make sure to try it on with your gown before and after alterations have been made. Wear your wedding lingerie when getting fitted for alterations so that the seamstress is sure to get exactly the right fit. When you go to pick up your dress, try it again to make sure the lines all fall in the proper places. This will also help ensure that there isn't any part of the undergarments that peeks out of your dress. While you want your lingerie to be beautiful, you probably only want you and the groom to actually see it!

The best type of wedding lingerie is what is worn on the wedding night. You not only get to wear beautiful lingerie underneath your dress, you get to have another set of lingerie for the evening. Most women pick white or off-white for the wedding night. However, you can choose whatever you like since only the groom will see it. Your choice really depends on your style and how adventurous you want to be.

Whether you're looking for wedding lingerie to wear before or after the ceremony, you'll want to take the top into consideration when choosing the rest of the outfit. If your bustier has garter straps, for example, then you will want to purchase thigh-high stockings instead of pantyhose. A lot of erotic lingerie tops come with thong bottoms, so if you don't feel comfortable wearing a g-string during your wedding (or on your wedding night), then you're going to want to shop for a different pair of panties that match your bra or bustier.

Lastly, make sure that your wedding lingerie fits the dress you are wearing. If your dress is form-fitting, wearing a bustier may distract from you and put focus on other places. Wearing a sexy sheer bra and thong may work best with that type of dress. Whatever you choose, though, make sure you are comfortable and have a little fun with it. Worrying about what's underneath is the last thing you want to be thinking about during the ceremony.
