A strapless bra is a fashion staple. But you will want to make sure you choose a support level that is perfect for your wedding day, so you will most likely have to stray from your run of the mill strapless undergarment.

If your gown has a low back and low front, you will not only need a plunge on your undergarment, but a low enough back for your dress as well. Search for a backless undergarment or convertible straps.

You might have even picked a wedding dress that would cover any bra you normally wear, but what if there are no embellishments like lace or beading on the bodice? You are going to need to look for something seamless or invisible that perfectly fits you. Gaping cups or thick straps will be visible under smooth fabrics like Satin or Crêpe.

This is in no way a full list. There are as many undergarment options as there are gowns! We ultimately recommend speaking to your bridal consultant for their advice, as they will have a good idea what kind of underwear, bra, or shapewear will work best with your figure and your dress, and where to get it.
