How to Pick the Perfect Bridal Lingerie
It's hard enough to choose the perfect wedding gown, let alone the ideal wedding lingerie to go with it! Well, here are some tips on how to pick the perfect lingerie set for yourself.
Know Your Correct Size
If you’ve been shopping around for dresses, you’ve probably had yourself measured a few times. Keep your measurements handy when shopping in person or online. Know the size of your bust, hips, waist and thighs. This will ensure you get the best fit possible. If you’re shopping for a bra or bustier for your wedding dress, it is best to get fitted for the proper size.
Always decide beforehand whether you'll be wearing stockings, thigh highs, or going bare-legged. We personally think Kix’ies thigh highs are the best option for the wedding day, reception and honeymoon night! Thigh highs that stay up all day (and night) are ideal for comfort. When dressing for the occasion, what you wear on your legs can also impact the smooth line appearance of your dress, so it's something important to think about.
Seamless or Invisible Lingerie
Always think about underwear when choosing your wedding gown, and whether or not you'll be able to attain an invisible effect. Dresses are frequently smooth and sheer, so talk about this to your designer or bridal boutique during the fitting process. If desired, choose skin-toned undergarments for an invisible look.
Tips to make sure you’re comfortable in your bridal lingerie
Whether you love structured undergarments or barely-there lacy panties, good lingerie can be very powerful. Finding sassy lingerie that's also comfortable can be difficult sometimes. Here are a few tips to slay your lingerie game with comfort.
Select the perfect fit
When it comes to lingerie, the most critical factor is finding the right fit. Undergarments that are uncomfortable or too small will not fit your body to its best potential, but undergarments that are the perfect size and match your style will make you feel confident and gorgeous.
Embrace your Shape and Size
It's natural to feel pressure to be a certain size, especially with all the unrealistic expectations from fashion magazines and the media. Rest assured that all adoring eyes will be on you the day of your wedding. Most importantly, your partner won’t be able to keep their hands off you! Wear what you love and what makes you feel sexy. Remember, your partner is marrying you for you, which includes every inch of who you are.
Invest in Quality Lingerie
Fit, structure, and high-quality fabric are the features of luxury lingerie. To ensure optimum function, well-crafted underwear incorporates engineering and science. Panties and bras exist in a variety of shapes and colors, as well as different fabrics. All of these factors play a role when it comes to support and the perfect fit and shape.
Kix’ies thigh highs were engineered to stay put all day long so you don’t have to worry about pulling up your tights or sweating in uncomfortable panty hose. Lingerie is not just for bedroom wear during the honeymoon. When you invest in quality lingerie, you’ll feel confident whenever you’re wearing it. It's your honeymoon, give yourself permission to splurge a little!
What about Matching Lingerie Sets?
Feel free to mix and match your honeymoon lingerie or choose a matching set to take your lingerie game to the next level. This sexy duo may become your favorite look when you add a pair of white or black fishnet thigh highs to the look!
Matching bras and panties can help you look and feel your best. The most vital point, though, is to buy bridal or honeymoon lingerie that makes you feel special and sexy, while embracing your natural style and curves.
What to Bring for your Honeymoon
Your honeymoon, whether that's a few nights cruise or a two-week getaway, is going to be a trip you'll never forget. So, make it memorable! You can get the rose petals on your bed and champagne at the resort, or you can prepare ahead and bring a few items to make your honeymoon a little extra special.
Other than the necessities such as your swimwear, beauty products, and clothing, the following are some suggestions of items you can take along in your carry-on.
Romantic Extras on Your Honeymoon Packing List:
- Tea-light candles
- Essential oils/massage oils
- Your honeymoon lingerie
- A customized song playlist for your honeymoon saved on your iPhone
- A love letter to your new spouse — or numerous small messages to leave for him or her to discover over your honeymoon
- polaroid camera and fairy lights
- Small gifts for each other. It’s customary for the bride and groom to give each other wedding gifts.
How to pack lingerie in your suitcase
Once you’ve sorted out your honeymoon lingerie plan, there is one big concern that you might overlook when packing your suitcase: how to correctly pack your lingerie.
- Pack a few bras and panties in your carry-on. Conceal them in small, zippered cloth bags for protection and privacy.
- Roll up your clothes to save space, then use packing cubes for underwear and lingerie items
- Put all of the clothing you need for each day into one bag, so it is easy to find what you are looking for
- Wrap delicate items like lacy items and jewelry in tissue paper before putting them in luggage
- Use plastic bags with Ziplock seals to store dirty laundry while traveling
Pack What's Important
If you choose to go with one carry-on suitcase because you don’t want to risk losing luggage, or get caught up at the baggage claim, avoid cramming too much into the bag. Carry-on bags are designed to hold only the essentials, so make sure you’re OK with bringing just the essentials and packing light. Make a list of the outfits you want to wear before you start packing, and then a second list of the undergarments you'll need for those ensembles.
Consider your options and just bring what you love and what fits you well. When it comes to bras, think of styles that are adaptable and can be worn multiple times. A multi-way bra with matching panties could be a perfect option for day to honeymoon nights!
Undies, bralettes, and chemises? Roll 'em up!
When packing carry-on luggage, rolling your garments is typically the best option – and it also applies to most of your underwear. It saves on space and typically helps keep wrinkles at bay. Wireless undergarments, such as slips, chemises, bralettes, and underwear can be rolled up nicely to save space.
Protect your bras
Poor packing will most likely cause harm to molded bras. To keep your molded bra cups in form, stuff them with socks or underwear (anything that won't wrinkle) and ensure they're the very last thing you pack in your suitcase. Folding them in half crushes the cups and leaves dents and creases in the material. Socks or underwear that can be stuffed into shoes or the molded bra cups will also help conserve space.
Your lingerie should be something you're proud to show off - not just for the honeymoon or your wedding day, but every day. In fact, wearing gorgeous underwear daily will help make any busy workday a little more enjoyable. If there is one accessory that makes women feel a little more confident, it’s her favorite piece of lingerie. Whether it’s a sassy pair of thigh highs, or a black lace bra, feeling sexy and confident makes any day better.
