Confidence and Comfort: Proper Undergarments for the Big Day

The correct foundation is the key to a perfect wedding day look. The correct garment will compliment the structure of the gown, inevitably molding a breathtaking silhouette. The foundation garment itself must be an appropriate size and style for your body and gown. With more fashionable and daring necklines being walked down the aisle it might be difficult imagine what you need to wear underneath your gown. Ronia from Eva’s Bridal of Oak Lawn put together a bra guide to help all of our #JABrides look and feel confident and comfortable for the big day.


V- Necklines

For wedding dresses with plunging necklines and backs like Style 8737 I would recommend a plunge backless strapless bra. This bra is great for low cut or backless wedding dress as the adhesive on the sides offer a secure fit.


Sexy Necklines

Necklines similar to Style 8756 and Style 8652 call for a backless body shaper. The clear straps give support for all bust sizes while holding in your tummy for slim fitting gowns. And the thong ensures no seams will be visible either for tight fitting wedding dresses.


Illusion Necklines

Illusion necklines like Style 9766 and Style 9735 will work well with an adhesive bra. This type of bra gains the benefit of allowing the bride not to worry about straps or seams showing while it has enough support to hold you up correctly.


Sweetheart Necklines

And last but not least the most common neckline for wedding dresses has a very easy solution. For sweetheart necklines with a higher back like Style 8766 , I would recommend a seamless strapless longline bustier with underwire. These elements will provide support under the bust to create just enough cleavage to fill the curve of the bustline as well as not show any bra lines. The trick here is to purchase a bustier that is smaller in the rib cage and larger in the actual cup to ensure you do not look like you are spilling out of it.
