What Bridal Lingerie Should You Wear Under Your Wedding Dress?

Deco Darling Strapless Bra

When planning a wedding, choosing what bridal lingerie to wear may not be the first thing that springs to mind. But nevertheless here at Bravissimo we believe that choosing the right bridal bra to go with your wedding gown is key to feeling beautiful and comfortable on your big day.

After all, with so many wedding dress styles and necklines to choose from (strapless, one shoulder, spaghetti straps, halter neck, V-neck, cowl, scoop, illusion and boat neck) how do you choose the right wedding underwear for the right neckline and dress?

Satine Bra

At Bravissimo, we have some stunning wedding underwear; to find a style that works with your dress, take a look at our recommended bridal lingerie for different neckline styles.


The Deco Darling Strapless Bra by Freya is perfect for a strapless style, one shoulder, sweetheart neckline, Evie Bridal Braspaghetti straps, halter neck, or illusion. It also comes with multi way straps, so you can wear it after your big day. From the same range, you can also purchase three styles of briefs, plus a garter and suspenders.

We know you love the Satine Bra by Bravissimo, our super comfortable padded plunge. The great news is, it comes in ivory with matching briefs or a thong. This style is the best choice, if you are wearing a V-neck, cowl neck, or sweetheart neckline with straps.

The Evie Bridal Bra by Panache is a very pretty but versatile bra. It is cut higher than the Deco Darling, so is suitable for bandeau styles, rather than a sweetheart strapless styles. It could also be worn with boat necks, spaghetti straps, higher halter necks and shifts dress style. If your dress is cut loose around the arms, this bra has multi way straps. It is also available with other bridal accessories.
