Stockings & Garters for the Finishing Touch!

As with most things in life 'the devil is in the detail' as they say and your wedding ensemble should be no different. Even though you may have been a step ahead of most and sorted your bridal underwear out in time for your final dress fitting, don't forget those essential accessories to finish off your wedding day lingerie.
There's still lots of choice when it comes to the hosiery for the big day and a few little useful tips to consider, so whether your preference is toward lace top bridal hold ups, wedding stockings with matching suspender or even a pair of back seamed fishnet bridal stockings, here's a few of our favourites;

For those brides who simply can't get on with stockings and a suspender belt and also aren't too keen on hold ups then a garterbelt and pantyhose all in one maybe the answer.

Do make sure you have your wedding lingerie & accessories in plenty of time and do get them out of the packaging to check there's no holes, nicks or faults with them. Last but not least, it's a good idea to have a spare pair of bridal stockings or hold ups, even just a cheaper pair in case of any unwanted nicks or ladders on the day, and you can always leave one of your bridesmaids in charge of them!

Get the Perfect Wedding Day Figure from Bridal Shapewear

It's quite surprising to see over the past year or so that there's an increasing number of brides choosing to wear some form of bridal shapewear beneath the wedding dress, as their choice of bridal underwear, to help get that perfect figure for the wedding photos. Modern shapewear designs cleverly use different materials and panelling to provide varying shaping effects to specific body areas. The more common shaping areas include the waistline, hips, tummy, thighs and bum. Bear in mind also that bridal body shapewear can be a very subtle style of shaping to achieve a nicely contoured silhouette to your figure for the big day. I've included some of our more popular bridal shapewear solutions, each shaping specific areas in their own particular way.

Pin Thin Bodywrap
Bridal Underwear - Shapewear
Pin Thin Bodywrap Shapewear
This pin thin bodywrap has the unusual feature of including a thong design within it, it's a very stylish and elegantly finished high waist bodywrap. It's ideal for providing maximum shape around the hips and waist line, and would suit many column or mermaid style dress styles.

Catwalk Bodywrap

Bridal Body Shaper - Bridal Lingerie
Catwalk Bridal Bodyshaper
The catwalk bridal bodyshaper provides excellent shaping around the hips and waist line but also gives excellent support and shape around the derriere and tops of the legs. Perfect for many styles of wedding gown especially closer fitting gowns where a smoothed figure outline is desired. It's a very comfortable style of shaper and does a marvellous job of shaping the figure.

Strapless Bridal Bodysuit

Strapless Bridal Underwear Bodysuit
An excellent bodysuit perfect for bridal underwear on the big day, its moulded cups and bodysuit design is ideal for an all upper body shaping effect and gives great support. Although it's shown with straps it can be worn with multi way straps or as strapless for many off the shoulder gown designs. In white or ivory it will compliment many gown colours and styles.

Although your bridal shapewear is going to help give you that perfect figure and that amazing feeling of self confidence that goes with it, it's true to say it may not create that magic first impression you're looking for on your wedding night with your newlywed! If you do opt for a shapewear option for your wedding day lingerie, then it may be worth considering a nice white babydoll, a charmeuse wedding gown or some more sexy underwear to change into after all the celebrations and put the perfect ending to your special day.
