6 Undergarments You Might Want to Wear With Your Wedding Gown
You’ve found the perfect gown, but it looks like you’re gonna need a little extra support… Well, put those wardrobe malfunction worries to rest! Here are six undergarments you just might want to slip on under your dress to have you feeling your best on the day.
1. A special bra. Does your perfect dress have a deep V in the front or a dramatically low drop in the back? Fear not. There’s a bra out there that will have you feeling beautiful and supported, no matter what your neckline looks like. Take a look at specialty stores like Cosabella, or La Perla, and you’re bound to find a shape that works with your gown.
2. Cutlets. Altering cups can be a little bit of a challenge. But if the bust of your dress is looking a little baggy, cutlets can be a lifesaver (and they’ll help your dress stay put). Expect to spend about $30 for a pair of re-usable cutlets from a brand like Miss Oops.
3. Corsets. If you’re opting for a strapless dress, a corset or bustier may be your new BFF. This garment will keep you feeling lifted, tucked, and 100% confident as you strut your stuff from the aisle to the dancefloor. Invest in a piece that will leave you feeling like the most beautiful woman on earth. For $240, try lingerie experts Agent Provocateur.
4. Shapewear. Ready to feel like a supermodel? Shapewear is here to help. No matter your size, these supportive undergarments hug a woman’s body in all the right places, leaving you feeling smooth, confident, and ready for your close up. Your new go-to brand? Spanx. For just $100 you can feel like a million bucks.
5. Fashion tape. Ok, if your gown is extra tricky, it may be extra difficult to find the right undergarment. In this case, adhesive tape is the way to go. Securing your neckline with this invisible trick, you can dance all night without the fear of flashing anything more than a smile. Pick up some of this sneaky adhesive at your neighborhood drugstore for under $10.
6. Sewn-in support. If you’re looking for light support, ask your seamstress to sew in padded cups. Tailoring starts as low as $15, and eliminates the need for a bra!
