This way the line of the gown will be true.
The style of the gown dictates the type of lingerie. A strapless or off-the-shoulder gown or one with a sweeping neckline will, for instance require a strapless bra or a torsolette, the latter also ideal to give a fluid, smooth line to a slim-fitting, figure-hugging gown.
Moulded bra cups or seamless bras also create an ultrasmooth line. Underwire bra styles give comfortable support to fuller figures; featherweight air pads guarantee a voluptuous cleavage for those with small busts.
Straps will stay neatly in place rather than slide off the shoulder.
For those with fitted dresses look out for the special briefs that support the tummy but do not create a panty line.
Other ingenious devices for low-cut, backless gowns are the various styles of adhesive bras that come in fabric or silicon that liberate the wearer from annoying straps and hooks.
Shape-wear has also become a huge part of the bridal industry. This provides control and shape for the figure. High-waisted garments are the most popular because of the sleek line they create from under the bust to the lower thighs. Made from lightweight fabrics and built to contour the body they are completely seamless.
Lingerie consultants with their specialist knowledge are a boon, making selection of the right garment a trouble-free procedure.
