I need some help in the bridal underwear/hoisery department.
I am a pretty simple, not overly girly girl.
On a regular basis, I wear simple cotton bras and panties – NO underwires (OMG they are the devil lol) and just simple, cute cotton bikini panties.
Sometimes I try to wear sexier things for my fiance, but I always feel stupid and awkward in them and they are usually so uncomfortable I can’t even stand wearing the stuff in the dressing room.
So I am kind of at a loss over what to wear under my wedding dress.
I have relatively small breasts (36B), and I was just planning on wearing my Victoria’s Secret strapless underwire bra. It’s seriously, like, the only strapless underwire that doesn’t make me want to kill people. It’s nude colored and plain.
(there is no WAY I’m wearing the apparently “neccessary” corset. Nope. Never, ever ever. I am a curvy girl, size 12, and my stomach isn’t perfectly flat but it’s not huge either. I bought a dress that flatters my figure so I don’t feel the need to wear something that makes me unable to breathe or “sucks me in.” I’ve never worn Spanx and I tried control top panty hose once and I thought I was going to vomit. Just not my thing at all. I wear clothes that fit). lol
But what kind of underwear should I wear? I refuse to wear thongs. Again, they make me want to vomit. SO uncomfortable.
And I LOATHE pantyhose. I tend to wear thigh-highs, which is probably what I’ll go with on the wedding day.
So does anyone have any suggestions on comfortable, relatively affordable, underwear that are a little more fancy than plain cotton white, beige, or pale pink? lol
Am I the only woman who doesn’t get all gussied up with garters, underwires, lace, teddies, nighties, etc???
