Choosing the Perfect Wedding Day Bra

Continued (page 2 of 2)

I would also recommend Miraclesuit branded Shapewear. These styles are especially cut to fit fuller women. They offer extra firm control and select styles are available up to size 5X.

What should a bride looking to fill out her gown, in certain areas, look for?

If you are looking for a little more volume in the rear, I would recommend Flexees panty style #5164. This padded panty adds just enough volume to your bottom without looking unnatural. If you need a push up bra, I would recommend Panache's Atlantis Collection. These two gel push-up style bras come in small sizes and give the petite or small busted bride a natural enhanced look while adding a whole cup size to her bust. They're available in both a t-shirt bra (style #1044) or a strapless style (#4040.)

What garments are best with different styles of gowns (strapless, halter, off-the-shoulder, etc.)?

Strapless bras are a must for pairing back to all strapless and off-the-shoulder strap gowns. I would also recommend them for halter top, portrait-neckline and cap-sleeve gowns, so you don't have to worry about the straps peeking out or sliding off your shoulders.

If you are wearing a princess style dress, you may only need a great fitting bra and may not require any additional shapewear. The top of this dress silhouette is typically form fitting, with an emphasis on the bust, making the right bra a critical part of creating a finished, smooth shapely look.

If you are wearing an empire, mermaid style or any form fitting column gown finding and purchasing the perfect shapewear piece is very important. You want to look for a seamless high-waisted style, be it a brief or thong. By selecting this shape, a bride is guaranteed a flawless smooth look underneath her gown, while preventing and camouflaging any appearance of a muffin top.
