6 Under The Wedding Dress Essentials That Flatter Your Shape And Style

Undergarments often come as an afterthought. However, they should have a special place in your dress shopping considerations. They may just be hiding underneath your gorgeous wedding gown, but they do work to enhance your beautiful features and camouflage your trouble spots. These under-the-dress essentials secretly lift your bust and buttocks up, cinch your waist, tuck your love handles in, and make you look and feel good on your big day.

With this, you should find the right undergarment or set of undergarments that will complement your body type as well as the design of your wedding dress. Below are some of the shapewear and lifter ideas you may consider. 

1. Strapless Bra/Longline Bra

Strapless Bra

Perfect for: Strapless Necklines Like Sweetheart and Straight

There’s nothing worse than constantly tugging on your strapless wedding dress all day. Wearing the perfect strapless bra is a no-brainer. You just have to choose the right one for your chest size and personal comfort.

For small-endowed brides, you may choose a strapless pushup bra, an underwire bra that isn’t just supportive and comfortable – it also offers padding and wire to boost and lift your assets. For fuller-chested brides, you may opt for a contour or molded up underwire bras to provide the needed coverage and support. A longline bra is another solution. The bra is attached to a corset-like bodice which gives your breast more support against slippage while wrapping around your waist.

2. Low-cut Bra/ Bodysuit

Low-cut Bra

Perfect for: Deep V-neck / Halter / Plunging Neckline

Plunging neckline never goes out of style when you dare to bare a bit of decolletage on your wedding day. Complement your sexy and low V-neck or Halter neckline with a low-cut brassiere, like U plunge bras or other undergarments with a unique cutout in the front. You may also opt for a low-cut bodysuit to keep everything stay put.

3. Padded Panties and Butt Lifters

Padded Panties

Perfect for: Form-fitting dresses like mermaid, trumpet, and sheath

Ladies blessed with lifted and well-endowed tush won’t have a problem with this. But if you weren’t gifted with fuller-looking booty and you want to accentuate your curves on your big day, find yourself a pair of underpants that can give yours behind an extra boost. A pair of first shorts or panties with a cotton, foam, or silicone padding will satisfy your need for some booty help. You may also consider wearing a butt lifter to enhance your natural curves without the necessity of the padding.

4. Adhesive Cups

Adhesive Cups

Perfect for: Back-baring / see-through/sheer illusion dress

A backless wedding dress is certainly a showstopper, and gone are the days when you have to go totally bra-less if you want to show off your sexy back. Today, we have bras with adhesive cups, which are nothing but versatile. For a more natural, comfortable, and nearly invisible feel, opt for silicone cups in nude. If you don’t

Perfect for: Form-fitting dresses like mermaid, trumpet, and sheath

Form-fitting dresses, like the mermaid, trumpet, and sheath, can either be friends or foes. They can accentuate your beautiful silhouette, but they can also work against you if your hips and thighs are trouble spots,

If this is the case, you should wear a shapewear that falls above the knees, like a waistline thigh slimmer. The key is it should be tight enough to firm up any unwanted bulges and give your silhouette a smooth finish from waist to thighs without leaving you with a muffin top.

6. High-waist Cincher/ Girdle

High-waist Cincher

Perfect for: Tight dresses that cling to your tummy area

“I don’t want to be flawless and seamless on my big day” – said no bride ever. That’s why we want our love handles and muffin tops to move out of the way, even just for a day. Yes, low-fat and sodium diets, as well as cardio and ab workouts, could help, but if you need an instant fix, midsection shapers can come in handy.

Consider having a high-waist cincher, either with boy shorts or a thong bottom for a seamless finish. They may also come with a butt lifter.
