If you’re a Bride to Be and soon to be wed and just don’t know where to start when it comes to what to wear beneath your wedding dress, then this might just be of some help. We find many Brides leave finding their wedding underwear to the last minute, either they’ve been losing weight before the big day or they think it will simply be a case of popping into town to pick something up. Unfortunately this tends not to be as straight forward as they imagine.

A wedding dress is a really special dress not just by its very nature but by its design and fit as well, so quite often requires some special lingerie for your wedding day. This is really why it shouldn’t be left to the last minute and taken for granted that it will be an easy task. So where do you start when looking for your bridal underwear? Whatever you decide upon, it’s important that it works in complete harmony with you and your wedding gown.


If your dress already has a lot of boning throughout the bodice then a wedding corset with plenty of boning is more than likely going cause some discomfort. Resist the temptation when you hear a corset can take up to 4″ off your waistline in seconds. Properly fitted they can, but the 4″ has to go somewhere! A wedding corset is very good at helping to shape and sculpt your figure to a more hourglass silhouette and providing support over your midriff. Some bridal corsets also have underwired cups and also give good lift, support and shape to your bust too!


Many wedding dresses have sweetheart or bateau necklines and therefore require a style of strapless wedding lingerie to go beneath. This is where it begins to get more tricky and even more so if your size tends to be less well stocked in high street shops, so a bit more time and patience is called for. A strapless wedding bustier could work well for this style, it would still provide some shaping to your figure as well as underwired support for your breasts.

It’s important to get fitted and go and try on bridal bras, you want to make sure it doesn’t give you a bulge over the top of the cup or alternatively that the cups don’t fall forward when you lean over, leaving you feeling unsupported and exposed! A dress that is made from a light material, such as silk or satin may also show any fancy lace edging or a heavily padded cup will be quite noticeable. Your wedding day lingerie should be the unsung hero of your wedding day, comfy and supportive and not seen by your guests and photographer!

Comfort has already been mentioned a few times, because it’s important. Your wedding day does pass by quickly but comfort really is king, so bear this in mind when it comes to your undies. If you’re not a thong kind of person then your wedding day is not the day to try. You don’t want to be fidgeting and shuffling all through your day trying to get comfortable, stick to briefs or hip huggers if that’s what you’re used too! You can get underwear that don’t have elasticated edges so don’t show the dreaded VPL!


Shapewear is quite a popular option these days with brides wanting to make sure that everything is tucked in to look their best in the wedding photographs. Bridal shapewear has evolved quite markedly over the years with some nice pieces available in whites and ivories to suit dress colours. When it comes to colours, try and make sure that you get bridal underwear that matches the colour of your dress. Most important of all is to try your wedding day lingerie on with your dress at some point to make sure they compliment each other and you’re comfortable!

So what sort of a Bride are you when it comes to shopping for your Wedding? Are you cool, calm and collected when it comes to making decisions? Do you leave everything to the last minute and just take everything as it comes? Or are you the original Bridezilla, when you know exactly what you want and anything other than perfection is just a downright outrage and an utter personal insult?

When it comes to wedding underwear for your Big Day, don’t leave it to the last minute! Even if you’ve been losing weight and you hope to lose a few more pounds, get your bridal lingerie in plenty of time, about 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. At least you have enough time to ale sure it fits comfortably, and I don’t just mean for 5 minutes in a changing room, you should wear it for a while to make sure it’s really comfy and supportive. You’re going to be wearing it for the whole day, the last thing you want is to feel it riding up, falling down or digging into you.


Give it some thought before you go shopping for your bridal underwear. Think about what style of lingerie is going to suit your figure AND your wedding dress. Whatever you choose, be it a bridal bustier, a wedding corset or a full bra and suspender set, it has to work in Harmony with you and your gown. Think of it as the foundation on which your wedding dress is going to sit on, if it’s no good then it’s not going to show you and your dress off to the max!


Choose something that is going to give you support where you want it. If you’re big chested make sure they’re supported. If you want a smooth outline to your figure then look for a longline wedding corset or some bridal shapewear that’s going to give a nice contour to your shape. The main thing is that you’re comfortable in what you choose.


If you’re a Panic Bride and you’re an unusual size or a size that isn’t normally well stocked for some reason, then change your approach! You might well find your perfect bridal lingerie to go beneath your dress, but if it’s not a ‘popular/ common’ size or even if the colour isn’t right, then you’ll need some time to get it ordered! After all you want it to be perfect, don’t you?

Well that’s pretty much it for another quick round up!


Enjoy the rest of your lazy Sunday!







Getting the right bridal underwear to go beneath your wedding dress on your all important wedding day can be quite a demanding task, especially if you’ve left it to the last few weeks, thinking you’ll just pop into town and pick something up! So I thought I’d have a quick look at wedding corsets, different styles of bridal corset, what they can do for you and a few pitfalls to look out for when choosing your wedding corset.


What does a Wedding Corset do for You?

A bridal corset is still quite popular with modern brides when it comes to choosing wedding lingerie for their big day, but sometimes it’s maybe not the most appropriate underwear to go beneath their wedding dress. A wedding corset is particularly designed to pull your figure in at the waist to assist in producing a smooth and sculpted hourglass shape to your figure.


It does this by it’s particular design and structured boning that helps to pull the waist in by anything from up to 2″ – 4″. Modern day corsets are not like the corsets of old that were quite uncomfortable and restrictive to the point of impeding breathing of the wearer! On this point of a corsets boning, it’s important to note whether your wedding gown already has a structured bodice with boning in it, because if this is the case, then a structured corset will be more than likely be far too restrictive and not required!


What Style of Bridal Corset will suit my Neckline?

Remember your bridal lingerie should remain a well covered secret, with your underwear line remain hidden well out of view of guests and cameras! So the neckline of your wedding corset must sit well below that of your gown.

Floral Tapestry Wedding Corset

A strapless wedding corset is great for off the shoulder gown styles and straight necklines, but if you’ve fallen for a sweetheart neckline with a low plunge or even a low back dress style, then again beware! The strapless wedding corset above carries another desirable feature, that of a double lace up tie back, which basically allows you, the wearer to set your own level of comfort or waist cinching effect with this personal adjustment!

Low Back Wedding Corsets for Low Back Bridal Gowns.

I touched briefly a little earlier about open back or low back wedding gowns that are very popular at the moment, which also brings along its own difficulties in finding suitable wedding lingerie to go beneath and provide the necessary support. Not all wedding dresses will accommodate, but a low back wedding corset can sometimes be a life saver for some Brides, as not everyone is comfortable with the idea of not wearing any underwear for their boobs!


What Lingerie will Suit a Close Fitting Gown or Silk Wedding Dress?

As mentioned your wedding undies need to be the unsung hero or heroine of your wedding day, by providing comfort and support all through your day as well as shaping and toning your figure to enhance your wedding dress. It has to do all of this whilst remaining hidden well out of sight. Although, a little more costly it has to be said, but, a seamless wedding corset could come into it’s own here and fit nicely beneath a silk wedding dress or indeed a close fitting gown style.


When Do I need to get My Wedding Underwear?

If a corset is not your normal choice of lingerie or underwear, even if not just for special occasions, then make sure you allow plenty of time to shop around and find the right wedding corset for you. In doing so, you’ll give yourself plenty of time to get used to wearing it, trying it on with your final dress fitting to make sure it works in harmony with both you and your wedding dress. The morning of your wedding is far too late to find out your beautiful bridal corset doesn’t work with your perfect wedding gown!

Strapless Wedding Lingerie for the Blushing Bride.


As an increasing number of modern wedding dress design & styles are off the shoulder, open neck or indeed open back, its leaving brides with only strapless wedding lingerie as an option for the big day. That fact alone can make finding the perfect bridal underwear even trickier & even more so if you’re needing it in a plus size lingerie option. This is one of the reasons why Moonrise Lingerie have added part of the Silhouette underwear collection to our growing bridal range.

The complete bridal collection included two strapless wedding basque options, a strapless bridal bra, a matching thigh waist wedding brief or thong & a classic bridal garter.

Isabella Basque

 Isabella Bridal Basque

The Isabella basque is a very popular choice for strapless wedding underwear among our brides at the moment, it features light boning & underwear support for larger breast-sizes and is finished with delicate floral lace detailing across the cups. The suspender straps are removable to accommodate bridal stockings or hold ups, and it provides a lovely smoothed finish to your figure around the hips, waist & tummy area.

 Satin Wedding Basque

Satin Wedding Basque

The Satin wedding basque, also a strapless option, has a slightly different design in its boning giving a little more toning around the tummy. It still has underwire support, providing comfort for plus size lingerie options, however the cups are a more low profile than the Isabella and is made from a smooth satin material, making it well suited to light chiffon dress styles.

Strapless Bridal Bra

Bridal Lace Strapless Bra

The strapless bridal bra from the Silhouette range is a great option for brides looking for a plus size bridal bra with good support & excellent comfort. It has a good underwire design around the cups for support for larger cup sizes, and is finished with the same lace detailing across the top of the cups to give a lovely romantic wedding feel.

 Lace Bridal Thong

Lace Bridal Thong

All 3 pieces can be matched with either ivory or white high waist bridal brief or wedding thong, which has the same lace floral detailing on the front panel. Completing the collection is a beautiful, classic narrow band wedding garter which is delicately finished with a tiny bow in baby blue, perfect for your something blue for the wedding day.

Well… this was our first time exhibiting our wedding lingerie at the Glasgow SECC Wedding Show, and I must say I was very impressed!!

There was a great footfall of brides to be and we even managed to hand out almost all of our 2013 wedding lingerie catalogues and bridal underwear leaflets.

Here is a picture of our stand. This year I wanted to create a shop like atmosphere so that our future brides felt more comfortable and relaxed to come in and have a look. It seemed to work very well. I was asked plenty of questions and we were very busy with brides having a look, which is great! We can’t emphasise enough just how important it is to get your bridal lingerie in plenty of time. Firstly it must be something that you feel comfortable in as your special day will be a very long and exciting day and the last thing you want to be remembering is how uncomfortable you were all day. The second thing you have to think about is, if your underwear will go with your wedding dress, you need to look at the materials, the sizes, the style and so much more! It is important that your lingerie works in complete harmony with your dress and you.

Here is Anna and Myself stood proud at our stand!

There were so many more fantastic people there too.

As well as our bridal lingerie collections we were also exhibiting some handmade wedding garters which our brides seemed to love and we made quite a few sales. So this means that I am going to be very busy with my sewing machine again to replenish our stock. I would like to say a big thank you to all the brides who purchased one.

Here are a couple that were on display…
