Choosing the Right Shapewear for Your Wedding Dress
Your wedding day is one of the most magical days of your life; it’s not the time to worry about panty lines! Many bridal dresses are made of very delicate and silky materials that can easily bunch without the proper undergarments. The best bridal shapewear is an essential component for the perfect look. Once you know the silhouette of your dress, consult our guide below for a little help with choosing the best wedding shapewear that will let you comfortably enjoy your day!
The A-line dress is a classic, sophisticated shape that flatters everyone. With a tight bodice and gently cascading skirt, this style is a subtle version of a ball gown. The skirt will cover your lower half, but it’s worth wearing a shaping slip or shaping bottom underneath to tame the tummy and keep fabric from moving uncomfortably in between your legs. The best shapewear for this wedding dress: our Seamless Solutions High Waist Shaping Brief. Firm yet flexible with no-slip silicone at the waist for moving around and dancing, this high waist brief sits under the bra, making it ideal for dresses with a versatility of necklines. The targeted waist shaping and overall seamless style will have you looking your best (without sacrificing comfort!) It also comes in a High Waist Thong and a High Waist Thigh Shaper.
What to Wear with a Sheath or Column-Shaped Dress
For the bride who embraces simplicity, a sheath dress is a very elegant choice. The dress' defined waist requires shapewear that is completely invisible. Let the dress and your accessories do the talking with this number. The best bridal shapewear for this dress: Hidden Curves Firm Shaping Slip. With Level 4 Firm Shaping, this slip targets your waistline with a control panel at the tummy to make sure your dress lays smooth while enhancing your curves.
Bridal Shapewear for a Mermaid Dress or Trumpet Dress
We love the Mermaid style because it really emphasizes the beauty of curves! The form-fitting style is gorgeous with a tight bodice that extends below the hips before flaring into a swishy mermaid tail. The best wedding shapewear for a mermaid dress should mimic the bodycon-like style. Wear our Yummie Hug around your middle to enhance your hourglass shape comfortably. The best shapewear for under this wedding dress: Seamless Solutions High Waist Shaping Thong, also available in a Brief and a Thigh Shaper. This shaping thong is lightweight, yet firm with Level 4 Firm Shaping so it will enhance your curves while staying hidden under the tight dress.
Bridal Shapewear for a Two Piece Look, Wedding Skirt, or Separates
For the bride who is electing to wear chic separates, you'll feel comfortable and confident in our Seamless Solutions High Waist Thigh Shaper or Harlo InShapes Mid Waist Shaping Short.
For those of you who have chosen a Tuxedo or a Jumpsuit, we have you covered, too! Our Cooling FX® Wear Your Own Bra Shaping Singlet Bodysuit was a top suggestion by Wedding Wire since the seam is only on the inside of the leg, plus, "the open bust allows you to choose the perfect bra for your wedding attire." Any of our Thigh Shapers would also be a great option for a tuxedo or jumpsuit.
Best Option for a Slip Dress
If you're wearing a slip dress on your big day, you'll need a minimalistic style with smoothing benefits. Our Ultralight Thong provides the perfect amount of gentle shaping and a comfortable fit.
The Best Shapewear for Under a Short Dress
Named by Brides.com as the Best Shaping Skirt, our Hidden Curves Firm Shaping High Waist Skirt Slip is the perfect option for a short, fitted bridal dress. Its 2-ply bonded shaping panel at the tummy provides extra control while non-slip grip tape keeps the waistband and hemline of the skirt in place.
Lastly, for a sexy look after you've said your "I do's," our Mariet Smoothing High
Leg Bodysuit with Lace is stunning with its elegant lace, high leg, and plunging neckline. The Jacqulyn Unlined Bralette with Lace and Catiana Smoothing Thong with Lace also share the same lace detail, and for a bit more coverage, try the Colette Smoothing Brief with Lace.
