I spoke with Mette from Freja Design - Wedding Dress Designer in Edinburgh and she highlighted a common problem many brides face: Here are her words:
We get a lot of brides contacting us with wedding dresses they have bought in shops without consideration for what underwear will work with the design.
There is absolutely not a one size fits all, but underwear can make or break an outfit, there are lots of options and they need to suit your dress and your requirements.
I am speaking generally, and your personal choice will come into it too.
But generally speaking, be realistic, if you have really big boobs and want to throw some crazy shapes all night, then perhaps you should consider a dress which will give you support to do just that.
In terms of your legs: you need to have a think about if you would like to go bare legs, if so, you need to break your shoes in extra much! shoes rub more with no stockings or tights. Perhaps a blister plaster pack on standby.
If you go for stockings, make sure you try them on with your wedding dress, you may be able to see the suspenders through the dress, also, make sure you test ride them with another dress, and make sure you are comfortable with them, if you are prone to chaffing, they might not be the best option,
You could also try hold-ups, again, make sure you “test-ride” them on a night out. So you are sure you have the right size, so you don’t get them falling down at the alter. Both hold-ups and stockings are definitely cooler to wear than tights. If you wear hold ups, you need to not wear talc and body lotion on the rubber belt. You also need to wear them for some hours to make sure you don’t take an allergic reaction to the rubber, its more common than you think.
Lastly, you can obviously go for tights, perhaps have a look at the ones which has build in knickers, so you don’t get too many layering.
