Bridal lingerie is always a hot topic - whether you’re have a flowery and botanical spring wedding, a laid-back summer wedding, or a cool and crisp fall or winter wedding - it seems like it’s always wedding season. While the bride has enough on her plate, the bridal party and especially the maid of honor may be feeling just as much pressure. Today we’re taking the focus off of the bride, just for a minute, to make sure that the rest of the party has the appropriate garments and underpinnings to keep this big day as flawless as possible.
Shapewear is going to be a “must-have” for most bridal parties. And this type of garment isn’t what is used to be. The stigma of ugly granny-panties is long gone, and replaced with attractive and functional girdles, panties, and camisoles to keep everything smooth and in place for the whole night. For a one stop shop, our Menage Open Bust Body Suit is pretty much a miracle garment, and all you need to do is slip it on! Functionally speaking, it has extra firm control, meaning that it’s shaping panels are tighter than others which smooth and slenderize your tummy, waist, and back helping you achieve that perfect hourglass shape. It’s style is simple and classic with black lace details, but also has a boyshort panty attached, and adjustable and removable straps so it will work with any dress style. Regardless of what the bridesmaid dresses look like, you’ll always be a bombshell underneath!
A second great option for a body suit is the Slenderizing Shaping Slip. This piece is so popular that it’s constantly selling out! With a sophisticated and sleek design paired with ultra firm shaping power, it’s easy to see why we can’t keep it on the shelves. This piece focuses of slenderizing your tummy and waist while giving your buttocks some extra curve and lift. The underbust design allows you to still wear your favorite bra, but you’ll get a little extra support from this as well.
Let’s say however, that your bridesmaid, or maid of honor dress is a little more complicated. Backless, strapless, plunging neckline, or all of the above, you can still have control of what’s going on underneath. For women with larger busts, we have a fabulous selection of convertible bras. The Jeanie Strapless Contour Bra goes up to a 38E and has molded cups in seamless microfiber to ensure a smooth look. Another great convertible look is the Coco Multi-Way Balconette which goes up to a 36DD, with beautiful lavender and white floral stitching this is the best combination of pretty and functional.. Similar to the Jeanie bra, this has removable and convertible straps so you can fasten it whichever way works best for you, and still be confident that you’ll be comfortable and supported all night long.
If you have a smaller bust and don’t necessarily need added support, pasties are an easy option to make sure you stay smooth and subtle under any type of fabric. Our Breast Petals are easy to put on and will stay on throughout a long night of dancing!
If you want a little shaping, but not an entire shaping body-suit, there’s still comfortable and cute ways to pull it all together. If you’re on the curvier side and want to show off all of your beautiful curves but just fine-tune them a bit, the Curves Gore High Waist Garter Thong is a great choice. This piece has removable garters so it works with thigh highs or stockings, meaning you can totally rock the vintage lingerie look under your dress. But it also has a shaping panel in the tummy area so this beautiful lace panty is more than just another piece of sexy lingerie.
Or maybe your bridesmaid dress is giving you more problems than you anticipated. Similar to the strapless/backless bra situation, there’s no underpinning problem that we can’t solve! If you're dress is either very tight, or very light weight, you’ll want to avoid panty lines. Our Shaping Thong is a fantastic pick because of both is shaping power and seamless design. It is high waisted with a tummy control panel, so you can still have control over that area without wearing a full-body piece of shape wear. And the seamless design ensures that you won’t see any panty lines no matter what type of dress you’re wearing.
While it may not be your big night, your role in the bridal party is undoubtedly very important, not to mention you’re there to have fun too! The last thing you’ll want to be thinking about is your undergarments — no matter what your fashion emergency is, we can help you solve it before it even happens!
