Bridal lingerie is a very important part of a brides outfit. Firstly, there’s the comfort factor. It’s vital to be wearing comfortable underwear – you’ll be in it all day (can I also suggest ‘breaking in’ any new bras). Secondly, you want to feel sexy!
There are lots of places that sell some lovely bridal lingerie, but it can be often difficult to find something that fits right, and that looks right. This is especially true for the bigger busted bride. What I find is when you get past a D/DD cup, it can be very difficult to find something ideal for the special occasion.
We have done some shopping around to find some of the best bridal lingerie around, and the places that cater for bigger busts, also cater for smaller and average sizes.
One of my favourites is Rigby and Pellar. They offer some beautiful corsets, bras and matching sets in a variety of colours and shades.
Also, take a look at Leia Lingerie, who are affordable and have five stores scattered throughout the UK.
Figleaves offer a lovely bridal range, particularly suited for someone who is looking for something simple. Let’s not forget that a lot of high street lingerie stores, such as La Senza, have started incorporating DD+ sizes and bridal ranges.
Start shopping for your lingerie as soon as you know what style dress you want. It’s important to have it with you when you try on your wedding dress for alterations so you can get an idea of exactly how it will look. Start early in your search and make sure to pick something that not only feels comfortable but makes you feel extra special on your wedding day.
