What Undergarments Should You Wear Under Your Wedding Dress?

Depending on the style of wedding dress you’re looking for, our fit stylists have a few tried and true recommendations to keep your curves looking silky smooth and your boobs comfortably supported and in place. We’re not just talking about garter belts and lingerie for the night of.  We’re talking about everything for your boobs, butt, legs, and tummy to look their best. So say goodbye to visible panty lines and hello to better strapless bras and no show undies to make you look great in your form fitting and strapless gowns.

Bridal Undergarments for Strapless Gowns

If your dress is strapless or has spaghetti straps, you’re limited on bra options. But luckily strapless bras exist so you can look great and feel supported in any style. You deserve a strapless bra that smooths you out, keeps your boobs in place, stays up, and is actually comfortable. At ThirdLove, we designed our 24/7® Classic Strapless Bra for your body so that you can get through pre-wedding jitters to honeymoons without adjustments or red marks (ouch!). 

A good strapless bra is lined with no-slip silicone to help your breasts sit comfortably within the cups of the bra all day. A little tip: don’t try to go bra free because you’re not going to get the lift you want. If you haven’t got a strapless bra to wear under your strapless gown, the next best thing is to use a bra that has removable straps and convert it for the day.

Undergarments to Pair With a Fitted Dress

To look good in a fitted dress you need to steer clear of panty lines. Good news? We’ve got you covered from boobs to butt with seamless undergarments. If you have a little more sleeve in your fitted dress and want a breathable bra to give you a nice lift and shape, think about an unlined bra. We also love a flattering push up bra that’s designed to give you extra lift without digging into your sides.

The best undies and shapewear for your wedding dress are seamless fabrics without stitching. We recommend seamless undies and thongs or anything with stretchy fabric that acts as shapewear. We’ll go through the types of shapewear for wedding dresses below. 
 

What to Look for in Wedding Dress Shapewear

Fitted dresses mean tighter fabrics that cling to your body and accentuate your best assets. But it can all go wrong if shapewear lines are the first thing people see. Not only are seamless undergarments and shapewear invisible under wedding dresses, they also help to smooth uneven areas. Shapewear focuses on pulling in and naturally sculpting all of those places you want smoothed out on your wedding day. Sculpting briefs, long shorts, shorties and one-piece bodysuits are a great way to smooth your tummy, upper thighs and butt. If your back is fully covered with your wedding dress fabric, then any of these pieces will work and keep you super comfortable. 
 

Bridal Undergarments for Backless Gowns

Depending on how the back of your dress is cut, you’ll want to choose a piece you won’t be able to see through any keyholes. Try a high-waisted or mid-rise sculpting brief that sits just above or below your waistline to show off your back but keep your shaping secrets safe. If the whole backside of your dress is open and neither a strapless or strappy bra will work, try flesh colored pasties or front-only coverage bra. Any no show underwear will work for a backless dress so go for whatever you prefer between a thong, boyshorts, or high-waisted briefs.

Wedding Undergarments for a Plunging Neckline

Plunging necklines are gorgeous. And what better way to accent one than with the perfect amount of natural cleavage? We love it! For any wedding dresses with a low neckline, try a bra that’s made with a lower cut in between the cups and has a balconette-type lift. A plunge bra will help pull your boobs together and give them a nice lift that you’ll love in photos. 
 

Extra Tips for Wedding Undergarments

One of the most important things to do before your wedding is to shop early and find undergarments that are seamless, make you look good, and keep you comfortable all day. You wouldn’t pay for a wedding dress you haven’t tried on yet. And the same rule applies for any undergarments and shapewear you plan to wear on the big day. Make sure you try everything on to be sure you look & feel the way you want to. Because it’s all about feeling confident before saying “I do.” If you can find the perfect fitting bras and undies that make you feel like the bell of the ball, it’s a win.
