Bridal lingerie talk

Have you also been dreaming about your wedding dress your whole life? Yes! But what about your lingerie? The perfect lingerie will make your dream dress stand out even more and will make you shine!

Together with Etam

Is it exaggerated to say that as a woman, you dream about your wedding dress your whole life? Bridal lingerie, however, is often a less familiar item. Did you know, for example, that you should provide two sets of lingerie? Walking around in lacy underwear all day is not a wise thing to do. So choose a comfortable set to wear during the day. No matter how sexy that underwear makes you feel, keep it for your wedding night.

Style & shape

The style of your wedding dress will influence the type of lingerie you wear. Strapless (bare shoulders), backless (bare back) or deep cleavage will require a lingerie choice that matches with the rest of your outfit. Consider having your bustier sewn in to avoid embarrassing situations when all eyes are on you.

When trying on your lingerie, keep in mind that you should see a flattering line on your body. For narrow silhouettes and dresses that accentuate curves, shapewear is a good choice. Your entire length will be streamlined and imperfections will be suppressed. Moreover, you will enjoy a good support. If you opt for a set of bustier and briefs, choose a simple one without details like rhinestones or lace that could show through the dress. An underwire bra can reduce creases under the bust and create a nice line while providing more back support. Whatever style you choose, the aim of wedding lingerie is necessarily to be invisible but to provide adequate support.

Something blue

Your wedding lingerie might be the way to go if you like to integrate something blue into your outfit. According to the old English saying, blue symbolises modesty and loyalty. Choose the blue colour in your garter or - if your wedding dress can handle it - go for a light blue lingerie set. More and more designers are taking this colour into account and do not only design wedding lingerie in white.


Not strictly lingerie, but the choice of stockings can also be important. If you are going for a short skirt, then a pair of tights might be appropriate for a silky effect. Think of it as Photoshop on a stocking. Also for certain footwear, the choice of a stocking or pantyhose may be appropriate.
