@rangersbride:  What sort of thing do you like and where have you been looking? I’ve generally found UK lingerie to be a lot more diverse than what appears to be available over the pond!

Are you looking for lingerie to go under your dress?  If so, plain underwear is better because it won’t mess up the look of the dress.

@rangersbride:  Have you looked at Victoria’s Secret? They ship internationally and they just opened a couple stores in London. They have a few that come in patterns/lace/bling.

I wore the 3rd one (the Bombshell) under my wedding dress with a garter belt and stockings.

Actually, by comparison, I think that the UK has EVERYTHING! ๐Ÿ™‚ I live in the US and ordered not only bridal lingerie but also my lingerie for my stepdaughter’s wedding from the UK.

To me, the companies that have the best options are Bravissimo-Pepperberry and Figleaves.com. 

Below is a pic from the Bravissimo website that shows the strapless, long-line bra and underwear I ordered for my DSD’s wedding.  The pieces are absolutely gorgeous!

@Brielle:  I love that one. It also comes as a bra and I think it’s in the sale.

You’re going to be sweaty and gross under there after wearing your dress all day – it’s much better to change into something clean and pretty than to go for it wearing your gross underthings right away!

@rangersbride:  I found the pictures of your dress. The black on the lace wont show through. Dresses like your have a lot of structure and thickness in the bodice. Mine was a similar shape and I wore black lingerie and stockings underneath.
