What Shapewear to Wear Under a Wedding Dress?

You have picked out the perfect dress for your wedding day, but now you are concerned with what you will wear underneath it. It is important to do a little research and become knowledgeable of all the different types/styles of wedding shapewear on the shelves. The style of your dress plays a major factor in what shapewear you will need to purchase for your perfect day. Discussed below are some tips on what shapewear is perfect for you, depending on your style of dress.

Strapless Dress

If your wedding dress is strapless then your number one concern is having a good support, so that you won’t be tugging and pulling up your dress all day. For strapless dresses, a bustier is the perfect choice of shapewear. It helps to support most breast sizes due to their built in bra, and also clinches to your waist. Another option for a good support is a bandeau style strapless bra.

Mermaid Style Dress

Mermaid style dresses are usually very tight fitting and close to the body. Choosing shapewear for this style can therefore be quite challenging. A good choice here would be a seamless bustier or even a bodysuit. These will help to support and slim the waist and shape the hips. You could also wear a strapless bra with a pair of high waist control shorts, to keep everything in order.

Ball Gown Style Dress

Choosing shapewear for a ball gown style dress is quite easy. You have the option of choosing whatever you would like because they are very loose fitting. Most ball gown styles tend to flare out at the hips so shapewear focusing on shaping the waist and support for the bust is the best choice. Bustiers are usually a suitable choice.
