Ah, wedding season. While we love getting dressed for a party formal occasions in the summer can prove to be uncomfortable. When it's hot outside, clothes are much more revealing and women have to figure out those tricky straps and lines.
Whether you're a bride, bridesmaid or guest at a summer wedding you will need some small items in your search for the perfect wedding-day look -- those essentials are the unmentionables that go under the dress. Undergarments provide the foundation necessary for your outerwear to look how it's supposed to.
Here are the top 3 items to consider:
The bra is the undergarment, that leading piece of lingerie to which all others play supporting roles. You'll need a good, supportive bra to lift you up as you walk down the aisle and keep you comfortable for hours of dining, dancing, and posing for pictures. Fit is key, you don't want insufficient support or annoying wires cutting into your sides. We love the Maidenform Comfort Devotion Natural Boost Strapless Multi-Way Bra available on Maidenform.com.
While old-fashioned girdles have long been out of style, you might try one of the several contemporary slimming undergarments that use Lycra or Spandex rather than stiff stays or ancient whalebone.
A body-support garment will give a slightly different shape than just compressing your tummy. Slimmer's are a great way to give a smooth leg line and eliminate thigh chafing like the Maidenform Weightless Comfort Shortie Slimmer available on Maidenform.com.
As with the bra and slimmer, choose panties that offer comfort over sex appeal. (There's just no way to discreetly rearrange a pair of creeping panties at a wedding!) If your dress has an unusually slinky cut or is made of very thin material, you should opt for a laser cut option like a Maidenform Comfort Devotion Thong available on Maidenform.com.
