We’ve posted on a whole manner of wedding topics on our blog recently from shoes, jewellery, wedding cakes and even cake toppers, so I thought it high time we took a quick peek at our ivory bridal lingerie. What we have to offer from bridal basques, wedding bras right down to wedding stockings to show off those legs on thhe big day itself!

Bridal Basques

A bridal basque is great for offering support for the bust as well as holding you in slightly around the midriff. Although they’re very similar to a wedding corset, they generally have a lesser waist cinching effect and nor do they go as far as the hips.

Wedding Bras

Although many wedding gowns are structured and maybe don’t require wedding underwear, a great many brides simply feel uncomfortable with the idea of not wearing a wedding bra on their Big Day, for fear of falling out or just maybe not having that support that they’re used to everyday.

The addition of lace overlay creates are really nice romantic feel to wedding underwear sets, particularly this one with the deep suspender belt.

Don’t forget that a balconette wedding bra or more obviously a push up bridal bra can be a great way of adding a touch more definition to your bust if that’s what you’re wanting as well.

A more traditional full cup wedding bra will provide fabulous support throughout your wedding day. Don’t overlook the importance of wearing the correct size of bra beneath your wedding dress, it maybe worth getting measured before splashing out on your wedding day lingerie. The last thing you want to remember on your wedding is to have been fidgeting with your underwire or straps because they’re starting to dig in!

  

Queen Size or Plus Size Wedding Lingerie

It seems that anyone who sports a bust size bigger than a D cup needs to shop in a plus size category? I’d say even more important on your wedding day if you’re bigger busted as myself to have a correct fitting bra, but also a comfortable wedding bra. (For those who’ve followed us for any length of time, know only too well, that, that’s the reason of how Moonrise Lingerie came about)!

BEWARE! Self Promotion ALERT! Our very own Harmony Plus Size Bridal Bra set was designed exactly for the plus size bride in mind, not only to cater for sizes up to 36G, 38G, and 40H but also to be extrememely comfortable, offer multi strapping options and have a beautifully romantic and luxurious feel to it, at a price that isn’t going to break the budget!

Wedding Garters, Stockings & Accessories!

A wedding garter makes a great gift for any Bride to Be, and is an area where you can add a little bit of elegance to your wedding day wear or even have a little bit of fun with. We’ve been asked to add football pins, add satin bows in football colours, add clovers, lockets and our very own lucky sixpence garter has been a real favourite!

Don’t forget the little things like your wedding garter or your bridal stockings, it’s quite often the little things that just complete your look!

Wedding Bell Bridal Stockings

Choose with care when it comes to ivory wedding underwear as there are many different tones and shades of ivory from the very deep ivory’s that border on a yellowish colour to the very light, which are often an off white!

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!
