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.

Low Back Wedding Corset

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!

For any further help & advice on finding the perfect wedding underwear for your big day then feel free to contact us at or visit our website at where you’ll find our complete collection of bridal lingerie. Because every bride deserves only the very best!

Boudoir Photography by Impulse Glamour




How and why did you begin in boudoir photography?



I used to shoot a lot of fashion and portraiture but more and more clients
were asking about boudoir style photos so it was a natural progression for
us and now it’s my passion and our main business.



What do you find most challenging as in this line of photography?



I often work from a blank canvas. I never know for sure what people want or
the looks and ideas they have until I meet them however although challenging
this is what makes the job exciting and rewarding for me.






What would be your best piece of advice to the bride thinking of having a
Bridal Boudoir photoshoot?



During our consultation I always advise clients that they only work to a
level they are completely comfortable with and I offer full direction
throughout the shoot usually involving me demonstrating the poses which adds
a bit of humour to things!



You can never bring too much to a photoshoot – the more choice the better
and often it’s a good idea to bring along a parners favourite shirt or
sports shirt along with your bridal boudoir lingerie, jewellery and accessories.



The most important advice – just be yourself and have fun with it as it
helps me to bring you out and capture your personality.






Who’s work has influenced you most?



That’s a difficult one. I admire many photographers, artists and film makers
all of which have helped me to develop my own style of photography using
light, shade, make-up, outfits and props to compliment individual subjects.

 Getting Ready for Launch of Our Touch of Elegance Bridal Collection.

The blog at Moonrise Lingerie has been fairly quiet of late, it’s not that we don’t have much to talk about, quite the opposite in fact. The reason is that life is still quite hectic both here at Moonrise and at home, with our new addition demanding our attention as well as our toddler. Our house move & relocation is pretty much done and we’re all settling in nicely and starting to make new friends as well keeping in touch with those we left behind in Edinburgh.

Our new bridal lingerie range that you may have heard us mention once or twice, has turned into being quite a big undertaking but the end is in sight and we’re hoping to have lingerie in stock & available to buy by the end of September. We will be releasing our ivory plus size wedding underwear set, Harmony. Starting in a traditional plus size range from 36D – 40G with a matching bridal brief & thong to suit, our design philosophy has been to cater for the bigger busted brides & bring a selection of exceptionally high quality wedding lingerie with affordability as well.


We’ve recently welcomed, Elena Raouna, our newest member to the team to help us with the launch. I met up with Elena recently in Doncaster and I think she is the ideal model to help us introduce our new wedding lingerie collection to brides across the uk. I’m just organising the last finishing touches for our initial photoshoot, which is going to be carried out with the help of Paul Travis of Eyedream Photography. I recently worked with Paul on our pre-photoshoot and he produced some really great images with our ‘Made in the UK’ theme in mind.


I’m hoping to get some help from some of our friends & sponsors, so they too can be a part of this amazing time for us here at Moonrise Lingerie. Karen from Bridal Eyewear has already kindly agreed to loan us some of her stunning glasses for the photos and I’m hoping to be able to show off some of the gorgeous lace wedding boots from Kim at House of Elliot. The photoshoot is going to be at the same place as  we got married a little over 4 years ago now at Armathwaite Hall in the Lake District, a stunning country hotel & spa overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake.




We’re already starting work on our next set which will hopefully be following the Harmony Set soon.
Don’t forget you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest and keep in touch with the latest developments here at Moonrise Lingerie.
