@FutureMrsHarless, I know showering, etc. doesn’t sound as romantic, but you can make it so! My Fiance wants to get me out of the dress as well… so here is what I kind of picture… Maybe coming back, him helping me out of the dress (in a soft romantic way of course) and us go into the bathroom and either rinse off together or seperate and then have him wait in the bed while I come out wearing something nice. I want the wedding night to be slow and relaxing and savor every minute of it, so I don’t think taking a 5 minute shower will interupt anything 🙂
@Starbit, I can’t wait to find some nice pieces. It sounds like you are all set!
I want to look for a lacy vintage inspired set, if anyone knows of some good places definitely post them!

A long time ago when I had just graduated college, I worked at Victoria’s Secret and got a discount of 30-40% off everything. So it kills me to pay full price and I still have tons of lingerie from when I used to work there, but I wanted to get something special and bridal looking.
I bought this little number: http://www2.victoriassecret.com/commerce/onlineProductDisplay.vs?namespace=productDisplay&origin=onlineProductDisplay.jsp&event=display&prnbr=GJ-235301&cgname=OSSLPWEDZZZ&rfnbr=6962′ defer=’defer
For the rest of the honeymoon, I will probably just bring stuff I already own.
@futuremrs.harless: I also love TJ Maxx for stocking up on cute cheap sets!
I customized my own panties with my new last name in rhinestones and a pair that says “i do”, but ended up also buying the set at Victoria’s Secret so I could get free shipping on my order.

I bought a ton of stuff from vicky’s. For the wedding night I wore a lacy ivory thing. I don’t know what the proper term is for it. It was like a tight spaghetti strap shirt but it was longer in length.
I recieved a sexy red and black set from some friends at my bachelorette party. I brought that with on the honeymoon. I also had a cute pink babydoll set from VS that I brought with. And another floral flowy top from Kohls that I brought too.

anyone have any idea where to get bridal looking lingerie for girls with over a 34C? i can’t buy anything from victoria’s secret because they only go up to that size. 🙁

@iggies- I am a 38D and I still bought from Vicky’s. I’m pretty sure they go up to D cup in some of the styles. I know for a fact the red and black set my friends bought me was a D cup.
Check out Frederick’s of Hollywood too. Their website might have larger sizes.

I’m a 34D and I’m still able to squeeze into some of their lingerie stuff. Most sets seem to go to a 36C at least with them. A rule of thumb with bras is that you can go down a cup size if you go up a band size (hence my 34D = 36C). It doesn’t always work but you can try it. If you get something less fitted like a slip or babydoll top instead of a corset or bra top, you will have more flexibility in sizing.

thanks for the help! unfortunately, i’m a 34Dear Daughter and i’ve tried on some vicky’s lingerie sets (like the one @bananafishfever posted) and they are so small on me, even going up a band size. 🙁 i actually buy my everyday wear bra’s from vs and i love them!
i’ve seen some places online that have lingerie in larger sizes, but i can never remember the names of the places! lol.

I use the figleaves website, which has loads of different brands and you can just input your size. I’m in the uk but they might have a us version?

@bananafishfever – Love that VS set! Did you order the customized panties or did you actually make them yourself? It is a super cute idea!

@iggies- I work for VS, so I feel like a traitor (lol), but Frederick’s carries the larger sizes in their lingerie.
I actually got lucky. Like I said, I work for VS. A girl returned a black silk peignoir and robe set that she had gotten as a gift for her wedding that she never wore. It’s full-length with a low back and a very vintage, “Old Hollywood” type robe. It looks like something out of an old movie. Anyway, by the time she returned it it was on clearance and I managed to pick it up the first day that the clearance stuff went on sale for an extra 50% off. I ended up paying $60 ($30 per piece) for a set that was originally $300 ($150 per piece).

Starbit: have you noticed that in the past few years, figleaves has changed dramatically? not only do they now carry ‘regular’ clothes, they carry lot less ‘specialty’ lingerie brands and a lot more of their house brand. i used to get expensive, beautiful lingerie for cheap there because they had such great sales (yes, they do have a US site), but i don’t even visit anymore because it’s changed so much 🙁
i am going to be on the quest for the perfect lingerie for my wedding day for a long time because i’m 100% committed to wearing something really sexy under my dress, haha. this may be weird but i’m really cognizant of the underpinnings i’ve got on all day and wearing a sexy bra and underwear can change my mood, so i want to be in the best mood possible that day! ha.

I’m not sure, yet. I want to go shopping soonish, but I’m hoping to lose a few lbs first!

@veganglam, I’ve only been using it for a year, so I haven’t noticed! I did once buy their own brand basic 5 pack of briefs and found them really uncomfy.

@artsprout – Probably not. Knowing us, we’ll probably end up passing out from fatigue before doing anything romantic. We’ll save the romance for the next day, I think.
