The Best Nude Underwear to Wear Under Your White Bridal Wardrobe

Not the sexiest, but undetectable skivvies are a bride-to-be’s saving grace.

Nude underwear: Not the sexiest item in a woman’s wardrobe, nor as fun to shop for as cute bra-and-panty sets, romantic lingerie, and sexy sleepwear. But for most brides-to-be, it’s one of the most crucial underpinnings for every outfit in your bridal wardrobe from your engagement party to your bachelorette and, of course, your wedding dress. Sure, pure-white outfits may not be your bridal style—modern trends run the gamut from bold colors to playful prints and frothier shades of blush, cream, and oyster—but even if you choose to wear a hue other than white for any one of your bridal moments, an undetectable pair of panties makes all the difference under a body-skimming silhouette, light-colored fabric, or slinkier material like silk and satin (we all know everything shows from beneath those luxe-but-unforgiving textiles!).

Nude underwear just simplifies the getting-ready process by eliminating the stress of a color showing through or a panty line becoming too visible. That being said, there are so many styles of nude underwear out there, so just because a style is uncolored, doesn’t mean it won't show. Uncomfortable or too-tight styles can create unnecessary bunching while lace, silk, or bedecked versions, although super pretty, will usually be seen from beneath thinner fabrics. Of course, if you’re wearing a voluminous silhouette or big ball gown, your underwear probably won't be visible, meaning you can get away with a more playful and elaborate style. But in the case of fitted gowns, slinky slip dresses, and drapey, fluid designs, a nude, seamless style is key—plain and simple.

From undetectable thongs to seamless bikinis and tummy-controlling briefs, scroll through for our top-rated edit of nude underwear to ground every outfit in your bridal wardrobe. With options for every skin tone, ranging from $5 to luxurious takes in lace, satin, and silk, we’re certain you’ll find a style you’ll want to buy in bulk. And after you say ‘I do’, we promise you’ll get plenty of wear out of these practical panties. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get nude (we had to).
