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.

GET THAT TABARD OUT!

The sun has definitely got his hat on and it is beginning to feel very summery indeed. What does this mean for us girls? Time to bare those arms, legs and décolletage. If your body is going to be seeing the light of day, there is probably some serious maintenance to be done, and that starts with exercise.

If keeping fit has fallen off your priority list whilst winter was with us, that’s fair enough. Winter is about covering up and comfort food, who feels like venturing out to burn calories when it is freezing? Spring is the perfect time to get in shape and outdoors is the way to go. In these times of recession, how many pursuits are free and make you look gorgeous and feel healthier? Exercise is a great way to connect with others too. In the digital age, social media has become a huge part of our lives, so sometimes the simple act of taking part in a activity with a group of people in the real world seems to happen less regularly. Think back to when you were a kid, you were always doing things in groups and taking part in team activities, like dancing, netball, hockey and athletics and you were probably much more content because of it.

If you are looking for a gentle introduction to a team sport, you could give netball a go. Back to Netball is a scheme currently being run by England Netball and supported by Freya. In fact Freya Active has been awarded “Official Sports Bra Supplier” to the England Netball Squad. Back to Netball is all about encouraging women over the age of sixteen to get back into netball even if you haven’t played since you were at school. Sessions are available all over the county; do take a moment to have a look at their new campaign on the website ‘Back To Netball’. You can enter your postcode in the session finder and find your nearest class. The sessions are for all ability levels, and there is a coach on hand to cover basic skills development and court play. But this isn’t just about tabards and getting sweaty, this is about meeting new friends, having fun and getting fit, without even realising it.

The one big difference between playing when you were at school and now is, the amazing sports bras that are available from Bravissimo. The Freya Active Underwired by Freya provides a truly comfortable fit and amazing support, you can jump up and down as much as you like and the only thing that will be bouncing is the ball. So ladies why not sign up this weekend.
