What to Wear Under Your Wedding Dress, According to a Stylist

You’ve picked out your perfect dress, you know what shoes you’re going to wear, and you’ve even decided on hair and makeup.

Now, for something that may have slipped your mind: undergarments. It’s easy to forget about what goes under the gown, but even though no one is going to see that part of your look, it’s still incredibly important to take into consideration.

Undergarments help shape a wedding dress and can change the look in a drastic way. When selecting a gown and when going to fittings, it’s essential to keep your undergarments in mind.

For example, will you be wearing a bra with your dress, or are sewn-in cups suitable? Do you want to cinch your waist in with a corset? Is your dress so tight that you need to go commando for the night? These are all things to consider.

To ensure you feel comfortable through and through on your big day, we spoke with an expert stylist to figure out exactly what to wear under your wedding dress.

The Most Important Undergarments to Remember

There are actually no real rules on what type of undergarments brides should wear. “What a bride chooses to wear on her wedding day is a personal choice, in my opinion, and should be based on what she will be most comfortable and happy wearing,” says Lesley Brickman, wedding gown scholar and stylist.

That said, Brickman notes that most brides opt to wear, at the very least, underwear and a bra. Your wedding gown might be luxurious and fancy, but your undergarments don’t need to be. A bra that fits well and underwear that doesn’t bunch, ride up, or produce panty lines are really all that’s needed for most to look and feel their best.

Shapewear is always an option, but Brickman says it’s not necessary. “I only recommend women explore shapewear to target any areas that could make them feel less confident on their wedding day,” she says. “If you feel that your tummy needs a little ‘control,’ selecting a pair of higher-waisted underwear that doubles as shapewear is a great option. If your thighs bother you, look for a pair of shapewear shorts that can help smooth that area and allow you to focus on the fun of your big day!”

In other words, don’t wear shapewear under your dress because you think you have to. Shapewear can feel restrictive and uncomfortable, and it should only be something brides wear if that’s their preference.

As for the traditional thigh garter, that’s another personal choice. “It isn’t as popular these days as it was a decade ago, but some brides still enjoy the tradition,” Brickman says. So in short, only opt for one if you want it. And if you choose to go the garter route, it’s worth pointing out that it can be a secret item. “You can still wear a garter without having to do the whole ‘hubby removes it from your thigh in front of your whole family’ thing during the reception,” she says. “To each their own!”

What Color Undergarments Should You Wear?

The color of your undergarments is important for your big day, especially if you’re wearing pure white. While many wedding gowns have a lining, to prevent them from being see-through, you probably still shouldn’t chance it with a bright pink, lacy thong.

“Opt for undergarments that are as close to your natural skin tone as possible, especially if you’re wearing an ivory or white gown,” Brickman recommends. “Many of the common fabrics we see in bridal gowns are often rather see-through, so leave the neon-colored thongs or the white bra with hot pink flowers at home, or better yet, pack them for your honeymoon!”

You can also opt for white undergarments if you really want to go full-on bridal. In general, natural and neutral tones that are close to your skin tone and whites are your best bet. If you really need some color, opt for blush.

Should Brides Skip Underwear Altogether?
Some brides might feel more comfortable wearing no underwear at all, especially if they generally opt to go commando or skip the bra. This isn’t an inappropriate option, but Brickman warns caution. “I personally would opt for at least a pair of thong underwear, even for the sheerest of wedding gowns, to ensure there are no ‘wardrobe malfunctions’ throughout the event,” she says. “Remember, some fabrics become nearly see-through with flash photography!” That said, she notes it’s completely up to the bride.

It’s also worth noting that some wedding gowns make it easy to skip a bra. “Many wedding gowns can have built-in bras, which is a great option for women who need extra support in the bust area,” Brickman says. If your cup size is small enough, you may be able to get away without a bra, while brides with larger busts might feel more comfortable in a bra.

“Sewn-in cups or built-in corsets can be sufficient for support for larger chested brides if they’re done well,” Brickman says. “This is where spending money on quality alterations can really pay off. Ask your alterations team about this during your first appointment, so they can plan appropriately to explore all options that will make you feel supported and comfortable, regardless of your bust size or neckline!”

What to Wear Under a Revealing Gown

For classic ballgowns and more simple A-line dresses, undergarments can be easy to decide on. In many cases, a regular old bra and a pair of seamless underwear will work. But for dresses that tend to be more revealing (think plunging necklines or backless looks), things can feel more tricky.

If your gown has a very low neckline, cut-outs, or illusion netting around the bust, Brickman recommends working with an alterations team to see what they can do to offer enough support with sewn-in cups. “Adhesive bras—including those that can be unhooked and worn separately, such as Perkies or NuBra—can be a great option,” Brickman also notes. Additionally, she recommends fashion tape if you’re up for it.

For gowns that have a very low back, are backless, or feature a lot of illusion netting, wearing a bra can feel impossible. For this, Brickman again recommends adhesive bras since they don’t show on the back and still offer support for the breasts. It’s even important to keep panties in mind for a dress like this: “It’s crucial to look for underwear that dips low enough to be invisible, so be sure to look for options labeled ‘low rise,'” Brickman says.

Johnnie Hughes Condemned For Referring To A Short Immigration Officer As Kapoipoi

Johnnie Hughes Condemned For Referring To A Short Immigration Officer As Kapoipoi

A critic in the entertainment space, Fred Kyei Mensah has taken on Broadcast Journalist Johnnie Berresford Hughes for referring to a ‘short’ Immigration Officer as ‘kapoipoi’.

Johnnie Hughes in one of his exposès on the Immigration Service refered to a short officer as Kapoipoi.

He could not fathom how and why the said officer made it into the service considering the fact that several people were disqualified due to their height.

To him, it smacks of corruption since such an individual challenged with height should not have made it to the service.

But reacting to Johnnie Hughes’ rants, Fred Kyei Mensah condemned Johnnie Hughes for refering to the officer as Kapoipoi.

To him, the TV3 Morning Show host could have used a better deacription for the young man.

LET’S TREAD CAUTIOUSLY.

I chanced upon a video this morning on my nephew, Kwasi Osei-Danso Ofori-Atta Facebook page and, watched an exposé on the Ghana Immigration Service about the selection or recruitment procedures adopted by them by the indefatigable brother of mine, Johnnie Beresford Hughes of TV3 on his program, “Johnnies Bite. Ordinarily, i would have called him behind the scenes to “spank” him but since he brought it in the public domain, i need to also address it here. No malice intended anyemi.

In doing so, he described and referred to one successful applicant to the Ghana Immigration Service as “kapoepoe” that is the parlance used in describing “little people” which i find a bit demeaning looking at the body language he Johnnie used in referring to him live on TV3.

Recently, a friend of mine, Anthony Osarfo, shared his experience in the USA when he referred to the “little people” there in an interview as “diminutive”. They didn’t take it lightly and he had to apologize unreservedly.

From my little research, people of such heights, are recruited into the security service, based on certain “special and professional” occupations they have. For example, a prolific instrumentalist, a medical doctor or any other person in a specialized field, can be engaged in the security service without recourse to their height. I stand for correction.

I don’t think, this guy who didn’t recruit himself into the Immigration Service, needs not to be humiliated like this on tv. At least, his face, could have been covered to avoid such societal name calling. He didn’t chose his height when he was born.
