Bridal Lingerie for the Plus Size Bride

For far too long there's been a limited choice of nice looking plus size wedding lingerie for cup sizes say above a DD or a waist size much above a 16. At the point of starting Moonrise Lingerie it was always an important of my business plan to provide a good choice of quality and sexy lingerie available for bigger busted brides. Being an F or a G cup depending on bra style, this was one of the main reasons of Moonrise Lingerie coming to fruition. Since starting the business I'm pleased to say we offer a good selection of beautiful plus size wedding underwear designed for the bride in mind to give support and comfort throughout the wedding day. Many of the styles include low backs, deep decollettes, seamless and strapless designs to suit many styles of wedding gown.

I've chosen a few personal favourites for this post, I hope you enjoy them, and for those brides to be out there, maybe it'll give you some more of an idea of what's available on the market....

Satin Bow Bustier

Satin Bow Wedding Bustier 
Plus Size Wedding Lingerie - Satin Bow Bustier

If you’re not feeling the need for the full body support and waist cinching effects you get from a traditional wedding corset, then a bustier is a nice compromise. The satin bow bustier is both beautiful and exquisite in every way. The lightly padded underwiring gives medium support to emphasise and wonderfully define your figure whilst the lace overlay and ruffled lace hemline makes for a stylish looking outfit. The satin bow is a great all rounder as its perfect for both the wedding day and also that special first wedding night. Available up to UK24 sizes and complete the look with a matching thong, bridal stocking or hold ups and you’ll create a jaw dropping reaction that won’t be forgotten.

Miette Corset
Larger Cup Sized - The Milette Wedding Corset
Traditionally a corset was used to train the hips and waist areas of ladies in order to reduce the size of the waist by up to 2 inches and by wearing the modern day corset you can obtain a more hourglass shaped effect to your outline. This Miette wedding corset has some absolutely stunning embroidery detail finished off with a ribbon bow and tiny diamante brooch on the centre panel of the bust and one the strap. It comes in a subtle cream colour and sizes now go up to a 38C to accommodate larger cup sizes.
Juliette Corset
Beautiful Juliette Lace Corset
This Juliet Lace corset although less of the traditional styling it does have some exquisite lace detailing. It gives a nice medium level of support with its underwiring and light boning. Wonderfully romantic with its delicately laced edged finishing and light lace up ribbon tie featuring on both the corset and the matching thong. Available in the more traditional bridal white and with detatchable suspender straps it’s a fantastic choice for brides looking to enjoy a spring/ summer wedding.

Madonna Bridal Bra Set
Madonna 3 piece Bridal Bra Set

This Madonna Bridal Bra set is a gorgeous little set with a beautiful balconette bra, perfect to provide uplift to the bust, and we are pleased to say also goes up to a 38C cup size. The cups are decorated with delicate lace embroidery and beautifully adorned with Swarowski crystals to add that special sparkle for the day. Shown with straps, they are detachable giving you a fabulous strapless bra, so if you're a bride with an eye for detail and want your bridal underwear with a hint of elegance about it, then maybe the Madonna Set is the one for you?
The Glow Bra Lingerie Set
The Glow Balcony Bra Set
This Glow bra is well suited for the Mermaid or Column style bridal gown, a very elegant dress type that would need a smooth style and shaped bra. Glow is a fabulous balcony bra, beautifully decorated with Swarovski crystals. The ¾ profiled cups provide perfect uplift and help support the weight of the breast, better allowing the dress to stay in a comfortable position throughout the day, giving comfort and confidence. Available in ivory, it is a very stylish option with detachable straps and removable push up pads for more flexibility. Now with cup sizes up into DD, E and F and backsizes up to 38 it's becoming more popular with todays modern brides. Combined with the matching thong and a pair of ivory bridal lace top hold ups, it would finish off your wedding underwear with a look of chic sophistication!
Hopefully this has given some good ideas for any plus size brides out there who are finding it a bit of a struggle to find some nice bridal underwear for their big day. We'd love to hear any of your thoughts or opinions, just leave us a comment. x
