where to buy wedding lingerie

While the dress may be your top priority when it comes to wedding shopping, don’t underestimate the power of bridal lingerie. Having the right foundation pieces can ensure you remain comfortable and confident on the big day — not to mention make your dress look as flattering as possible. Many brides even opt to get some unmentionables for the ceremony in addition to some special pieces for their wedding night. But the question remains: Where do you buy wedding lingerie?

There are many options when it comes to shopping for these extra special pieces. Follow this guide to find your ideal underthings for tying the knot.

Your local lingerie boutique

For something as special as bridal lingerie, you may want to do your shopping in person. If that’s the case, be sure to check out your local lingerie boutique. The inventory may be smaller, however, you’ll be getting personalized advice from a store associate. A professional fitter can ensure you’re buying items in the right size, while also making useful recommendations on specific products that are well suited to your body type and personal tastes. Consider bringing in your wedding dress to try on with any underthings you’re considering.

Nordstrom

With hundreds of options in the bridal lingerie category, you’re bound to find something that strikes your fancy at Nordstrom. This department store carries a range of options, from strapless bustiers and lightweight lacy bralettes and underwire bodysuits. You can search by color, price, or brand, and even filter out items that are available at your local Nordstrom store. That feature is particularly helpful if you want to try things on in person (perhaps even under your gown).

Lord & Taylor

Whether you’re looking for a slip, bodysuit, romper, or bra and panty set for the big day, you may very well find it at Lord & Taylor. This department store has a variety of pieces to choose from under its bridal lingerie category, and you can filter the category by brand, price, color, size, and type. Moreover, you can organize the results by best sellers. Need a little assistance in deciding on particular pieces? Try chatting online with a store associate, who may be able to offer some helpful tips on the sizing or fit of a particular brand or garment.

David’s Bridal

It goes without saying that when it comes to wedding day garments, David’s Bridal is an excellent shopping source. But this online retailer carries a whole lot more than just bridesmaid dresses and bridal shoes — you’ll also find a slew of underthings that are well suited to saying “I do.” There is a multitude of ultra-practical pieces, like backless plunge bras and seamless convertible bras, which can be a lifesaver under tricky gowns. Additionally, the store boasts a ton of striking bras and bustiers that can easily transition into your honeymoon. Don’t forget to scope out the bridal shapewear, which may make a big difference depending on the cut and fit of your wedding dress.

Her Room

While this online retailer may have a somewhat smaller selection than the aforementioned stores, it’s still certainly worth checking out. Like the others, Her Room has an entire category dedicated to bridal lingerie, which includes bras, panties, sleepwear, garters and garter belts. Moreover, this retailer has a category of plus size bridal lingerie. Not only can you filter the results by size and color, but also by style (such as sets, chemises, and babydolls) and taste (such as sexy, luxury, and contemporary). You can also live chat with someone from Her Room if you need a little guidance while you’re online shopping.

Remember:

Shopping for bridal lingerie shouldn’t be a stressful experience — in fact, you should be able to get some excitement out of choosing the unmentionables your groom will get to see once you’ve tied the knot. So if you’re not sure where to start hunting for undergarments, start by perusing the options above. And remember: wearing the right lingerie underneath can make your wedding dress look even more stunning.
