Buying The Right Bridal Underwear

Your wedding dress is one of the focal features of your big day – but have you thought about the finer details of your outfit? Choosing the right lingerie is important for the day, not just for aesthetic but also to ensure you’re happy throughout the celebrations.

Your dress may already include a supportive bra but if not you’ll need to shop for the perfect addition to your outfit – and Bare Necessities are here to help you! Read below our top tips for choosing the perfect bra for your wedding day. 

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bridal Underwear

Make Sure The Bra Is Soft

Wedding celebrations are typically long days, so you’ll need something that’s extra soft. Choosing the right fabric will mean you can stay comfortable all day long, without any irritation. Plus, with the right bra, you won’t have to choose between comfort and support.

Get Extra Confidence From Padded Bras

Our popular padded styles are perfect for the bride looking for a little extra emphasis from her bra.  Your wedding day is all about looking your best and feeling confident, so enjoy the extra boost that a padded bra gives you under your bridal dress.

Choose A Style To Match Your Dress

There’s a huge range of styles available to you, depending on the type of bridal dress you’re wearing on your big day. There are bras that create plunge lines, contour styles that give an invisible fit under clothing, low cut balconnet bras that reveal larger portions of the breast and more. Shop a huge range of styles and finishes, including lace, to find the perfect bra to compliment your outer clothing.

Shop For Your Bra Well In Advance

There’s nothing worse than a last minute stress, or any hitches on your big day! Shopping far in advance for your bridal underwear, and making sure you’ve given it a test run, will give you peace of mind ahead of the celebrations.

Match The Colour

With a majority of brides choosing to wear white on their big day, it’s important not to choose dark coloured underwear. We have a huge selection of white underwear to stay discreet, or an ivory seamless cup bra for brides who have chosen a non-white coloured dress. 

Pick Something You Feel Great In

This is one of the most important days of your life, so pick something you feel fabulous in! If there’s a luxury style you’ve always wanted to try then now’s the chance, so make sure you go big. At Bare Necessities we have a huge range of stand-out styles that will help create an unforgettable lingerie outfit.
