You know better than anyone that weddings aren’t a one-day kind of thing. You have your bridal shower, bachelorette, rehearsal dinner, maybe a welcome party, oh, and the actual wedding…followed by the honeymoon! It’s a lot to plan, and there are so many details to think about, it can be downright head-spinning. The last thing you should have to worry about is your underwear. Let us do that instead—we’ve literally already made you a list.
A Wedding Day Bra:
The best bra for your big day will depend on your dress, but a pretty, stay-put strapless bra like the Parfait Elissa Longline Strapless Bra is usually a good bet. We also love the aptly named Prima Donna I Do Plunge Longline Bra, which is a great day-of option that will also add some extra magic to all of the festivities, from your shower to your rehearsal dinner.
Wedding gowns often demand special base layers, not least of which would be well-constructed, “OMG-your-body-looks-incredible!” shapewear. TC Fine Intimates Extra-Firm Control High-Waist Thigh Slimmer smooths from waist to thigh and disappears under even the silkiest styles. If you want allover shaping, our pick is the Maidenform Flexees Easy-up Convertible Firm Control Bodysuit. Trying to solve for a low-back dress? The Dominique Noemi Strapless Backless Bustier stays hidden while keeping you supported and lifted, thanks to its corset design.
If you’re still trying to find your something blue, the Hanky Panky Bride & Mrs. Original Rise Thong Set has a blue pair for the wedding and a white pair for the honeymoon. And if you’re less concerned about adding the hue to your walking-down-the-aisle look, how about getting ready in the Kate Spade New York Charmeuse Happily Ever After Robe?
Getting Ready Robe:
Speaking of robes, we also love the lacy Flora Nikrooz Sydney Charmeuse Wrap Robe or classic Kate Spade New York Charmeuse Mrs Robe. These will look chic and pretty in pictures, and won’t mess up your hair or makeup.
Lingerie & Romantic Sleep:
Pretty little things are a honeymoon essential, and just plain fun to wear. Some of our fave “you’re so lucky you married me” looks include the Flora Nikrooz Showstopper Charmeuse Chemise, the gorgeous Oh Là Là Chéri Elishia Open Back Teddy & Satin Robe Lingerie Set, and the straight-up sexy Dreamgirl Deep Plunge Crotchless Lace Teddy.
Honeymoon Swim & Cover-Ups:
Headed somewhere warm and sunny? We love a white swimsuit moment for a honeymoon, like the Bleu Rod Beattie Kore Shirred Underwire One-Piece or, if you prefer a two-piece, the Miss Mandalay Boudoir Beach Halter Bikini. Top off your “just-married” beach babe look with a white Becca Gauzy Button-Down Cover-Up.
