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!

As you know already, I run a bridal lingerie company which is going very well. However, I am always looking for new things to do to make my business different from others. Over the past year and half I have been working on designing out very own plus size bridal bra which will have a matching brief or thong and that too is all going well and shall be out soon.

I have found it really interesting designing our own bra and exciting knowing that I am creating something special for my company. The only part of designing that I had not done is the making of a bra!

So, I booked myself on a bra making course!

Here is how I did…

To start with I made a toile sample to check that the size is correct and does not need altering.

This sample was a great fit.

Once a toile sample has been done and I know it is correct I then start to cut out the patterns with the material chosen…

I have chosen a lovely black lace with a deep purple colour running through it for my top cup, and a black stretch mesh with small white polka dots on for the top cups.

I have not started to piece together my individual bra parts by tacking them before sewing them into place.

Now all my cup pieces have been sewn together, this is the result!

It is now starting to take shape.

The next step in my journey to making my own bra is to join the cups together and attach then to the side panels and add the straps.

I have had such a great weekend making this bra… I now look forward to making the matching brief.

Finding Wedding Lingerie to Suit your Bridal Gown Neckline.

Happy New Year to everyone and here’s hoping 2015 is going to be prosperous for us all. Congratulations to all the Brides to Be out there who we’re lucky enough to get proposed to over the  Christmas period. With the 2015 wedding season soon upon us I thought I’d kick Moonrise Lingerie’s Bridal Blog off with looking at different styles of wedding lingerie to suit the neckline of your chosen gown.

It was when I stumbled across this little infographic last year that got me thinking about this. It’s quite straight forward if you have a neckline that is fairly straight forward such as a high neck, square or even a scoop neckline, you have a multitude of options from wedding corsets, bridal bras and basques to choose from.

However it starts to get a little tricky if you’ve opted for a sweetheart, off the shoulder or an illusion neckline. These styles of neckline will send you down the route of strapless wedding underwear solutions, which there are plenty but you need to be prepared to look a little harder, particularly if you’re needing a particular colour or a size that isn’t commonly stocked on the high street.

Many popular styles of wedding dress are being designed with low backs which makes it slightly more trickier to find low back bridal lingerie that’s also strapless. With all of this in mind it’s worth leaving yourself about 6 – 8 weeks to get your wedding lingerie in order, and definitely have it in plenty of time for your final dress fitting to allow for any last minute alterations.

Now the v-neck, halter and halter strap neckline may well be able to accommodate strapless wedding underwear solutions however for bustier brides who require a plus size bridal underwear solution for greater support then a halter neck bridal bra option may be needed.

A handy tip that some of our brides have used is to have small press studs sewn onto their bra straps and the halter strap of their wedding gown to make sure the bra strap remains hidden out of sight. Let’s not forget that your wedding lingerie needs to be the unsung hero of your wedding day, it has to be comfortable, provide great support where needed and make you feel fabulous, and do all of this whilst remaining out of view!
