Your Bridal Look Begins with Great Foundations

Choosing the right lingerie to suit your wedding dress can really make or break the entire look. However, finding the right set can be a difficult task. Not only do you have to make sure it flatters your dress, but you also need to find a style to suit your shape.

I really believe that the most beautiful bridal look begins with the foundations. So to add that extra special touch to your big day, I’ve handpicked the best bras to help you achieve wedding day perfection, whatever your size or style.

Strapless or Low Neckline Dress

Perfect for that extra boost of confidence, a push up bra is designed to enhance and uplift the bust for a fuller looking appearance. Although push up bras are ideal for any bust size, they are especially great for accentuating smaller busts and giving them a boost. However, many women make the mistake of wearing a push up bra that’s too small thinking it will create a better cleavage – this is not the case! Make sure to find out your correct bra size to ensure a natural looking cleavage. The Lepel Fiore Padded Plunge Bra (image above) is a great choice for your wedding day. Adorned in exquisite floral lace and a pretty scalloped trim, this bra provides an amazing fit with foam padding to lift the bust, comfortable underwiring for exceptional support and a sexy plunging neckline that’s perfect for wearing with a low cut neckline.

The Slinky Gown

Every bride wants to look flawless on their wedding day, so choosing a bra that will flatter your figure can really positively change the way your dress fits. A smoothing bra is essential to a sleek silhouette, but this is especially important if your dress is sheer or close fitting as a smoothing bra will help to eliminate any lumps and bumps. The Deco Underwired Moulded Bra from Freya (image below) combines style and function which is very important on your special day. The seamfree, moulded cups ensure a smooth and invisible look under your wedding dress while the underwiring and adjustable straps provide amazing support.

Backless Is Beautiful

A backless dress makes a stunning choice on your wedding day. If you’ve decided on a beautiful backless gown or a dress with a revealing low back, then you’ll need to find the perfect lingerie to match. Comfort and support are key to this look and will really impact on how you look and feel when the big day arrives. The Fashion Forms Backless Strapless Ultra Nu Light Bra (image below) is a fantastic choice as the front fastening and self-adhesive silicone cups offer fantastic support. The cups are seamless and moulded for a super smooth and flawless shape. However make sure that your skin is dry when you apply the bra otherwise it may not stick.

Whether you want to give your bust a boost, sculpt a smooth silhouette or go backless and strapless, make sure to always take different lingerie styles to your dress fitting for the perfect fit.
