What Lies Beneath
The right lingerie under your gown can impact how you look and feel on your big day.
You spend countless hours, days, even months searching for the perfect wedding gown—but the foundation garments you choose are important, too. A beautiful bustier can whittle your waist and boost your bust, and a lacy garter and pretty panties add a bit of saucy promise to your demure gown. And while white or ivory is a natural choice to pair with a wedding gown, don’t be afraid to add a bit of color below all that tulle, lace or satin. A dash of bold black or another unexpected hue can be your little secret—at least until after the reception.
