Lingerie is integral to your wedding day and is as important as the wedding gown itself. It is vital that you look and feel beautiful all day on your special day and wearing the incorrect underwear can leave you feeling uncomfortable and anything but beautiful. Nowadays with all the different styles and shapes of wedding dresses, finding supportive lingerie that fits and flatters each individual style can be a toughie. So, when Sheer Lingerie announced it’s Lingerie 101: Bridal Solutions class, I quickly signed up and snagged one of the coveted 16 spots. Sheer stocks a wide range of wedding lingerie, all fit to offer a desirable appearance both underneath and above your dress and the class was aimed at showcasing all the possible lingerie solutions for Brides as well as sharing their expert tips on choosing the correct lingerie for your big day.
All excited, my Bride-to-be girlfriends and I rocked up to Sheer and was greeted by goodie bags and bubblies. Sexy lingerie, Oscar de la Renta gowns, models, goodies and bubblies? What a fabulous way to kickstart one’s Friday night! After settling all us giggly girls, Laura of Sheer began to show us what to wear under gowns with low back designs, form fitting gowns, strapless gowns and the like.
So, what do you wear under a structured strapless gown with a low back? Try a corset! Wearing a corset is an easy way to add a bit of va-va-voom to your bridal lingerie ensemble as well as hide away a less than perfect figure. Sheer recommends the gorgeous Cadolle Vivaldi bridal corset. Cadolle, a famous corset maker based in Paris, is the creme de la creme of the corset world. With their off the shoulder and low back designs, they’re perfect for those low back wedding gowns and the steel boning means you can say goodbye bulges when sitting down.
What about a form fitting gown? Laura showed us that an OnGossamer Strapless Mesh Bra with Wolford Velvet Control High Waist Shorts ensemble works perfectly with this kind of dress because it’s completely seamless. Granted, it’s not the most attractive ensemble to be sporting on your wedding day but you could always change into something sexier post wedding for the hubby right? The main thing is that no lines show underneath your fitted gown.
However, if you are looking for something a little prettier and also seamless but don’t require a strapless ensemble, try the Result Wear Marilyn slip. It’s gorgeously sexy, comes in both nude or black and with the uber sexy zipper at the back, if you’re game, you could wear it for a night out on the town with the girls!

And finally, what lingerie to wear for a low plunging and backless dress? Laura showed us the beautiful Kiri in the Wolford Mat de Luxe String Body. Super chic and seamless, my girlfriends and I were all dying to try it. You could even wear this out as a strapless top which I’m sure will send some male glances your way for sure.
The intimately fun and informative session ended with a showcasing of Sheer’s vast range of lingerie options suitably tasteful and beautiful for your honeymoon, which had the girls running to the changing room to try on their picks. Rather than fight for a changing room with the Brides-to-Be, I helped myself to more Hanky Panky thongs – totally converted!
