So, I’m looking for a pair of control underpants for my wedding day (suuuuuper sexy, I know!). I had originally planned on nude, but my long-line bra is white, and I guess it’d be nice if they matched. But I keep thinking back to ages ago when I used to wear white bras, and the white-bra-under-white-shirt effect is burned into my mind. I’d iike to avoid that on my wedding day! My dress’s bodice is thick and the white bra definitely didn’t show through during my fitting (plus, the bra is the same length as the bodice anyway), but the black underpants I was wearing during my fitting did show through the skirt (a flowy tulle skirt). Do you think white underpants will show through on the big day, or should I just forget about matching and play it safe with nude undies?

Nude all the way. I had a tulle skirt too, and was also paranoid about it.

Can you try them on before the wedding to see if they show through?
I’m wearing white I think, but with the thickness of my dress and the crinoline I’m sure I could get away with any colour.

I’m wearing a nude Rago with no bra!

I wore white lace underwear, and no bra as my dress had built in cups

@orchidaloha: yeah, I can, but I’m going to order a Rago online I think, and I don’t want to buy 2 and have to send one back…
Maybe I’ll go with nude. Afterall, the undies I’m probably going to end up wearing aren’t sexy, my bra is likely going to be tacked into the dress, so if I want to look sexy on my wedding night I’m going to be changing into something else anyway! Plus, my fiance isn’t super into sexy lingerie anyway…

@misschickpea: can I ask which Rago you’re getting? I’ve heard good things, but they’re not sold here as far as I know, so I can’t try on different styles beforehand

I wore white panties with “I Do” written in rhinestones in cursive (One classy biotch!)
But my skirt was also silk taffetta with the world’s heaviest silk-satin-God-know’s-what liner (the dress weighed 53 pounds) So no see-though risk!

@ferdie224: I got the high waist long leg shaper! It’s fabulous! I love that it doesnt roll down from the top!

Nude, I think – although I don’t think you would be able to tell either way with the zillion layers of silk and tulle going on.

I would play it safe with nude especially if you could see the black through the dress. I wore bright neon underwear though (wanted them to be fun lol) and you couldn’t see them at all under all my layers.
Can you try on a white pair with your dress before the big day? Maybe even walk outside to see if it makes a difference in the sunlight?

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
I wore the white lace panties with little blue rhinestones that spell out “bride” that Victoria’s Secret sells.
I don’t think anything would have shown through my dress even if they were rainbow and had flashing lights attached. I just liked the bridal white, soft lace, cute shape, and included an easy “something blue”
Edit: When in doubt, always alway always do nude! White shapewear isn’t any sexier than nude shapewear, so you might as well do your best to not let anything peek through. Cameras might be less forgiving than normal lighting, too! That would be awful!
