A lot of attention and thought are put into the wedding dress, no doubt about it. But many brides don't put as much attention on the wedding lingerie beneath that elegant gown. Wedding lingerie can enhance the appearance of the dress and can add an extraordinary touch to that special moment at the end of the wedding day, so choosing that lingerie carefully is incredibly important.

Bras, girdles and hosiery all contribute to the overall effect by smoothing out everything underneath to make your dress appear flawless. Why wear run-of-the-mill underwear when you could wear sexy bridal lingerie? Don't worry about comfort, either. Sexy doesn't mean itchy or tight-fitting. If you choose a bridal lingerie set that fits right, you'll be comfortable all day long.

Let's take a look at a few of the key components for your wedding lingerie:

The Bra its a fact: Most women don't have a bra that fits properly or even know the proper way to be fitted for a bra. We've all suffered through bras that are too tight or too loose, or the cups are too big or way too small. The straps slip and the under wires are uncomfortable. In general, an ill-fitting bra has the potential to be as much of a torture device as anything the Spanish Inquisition could dream up.

Start by going to a good lingerie store. The saleswomen helps guide you in finding a bra that fits properly. They teach you how to take the proper measurements and find the styles of bras that flatter your particular form. Designers are well aware that women want decorative bras and want comfort too. You'll have many styles to choose from.

Girdles: A girdle, while behind the times, can be unbelievably comfy and becoming to wear under the wedding dress. It can tense up all of the right places and improve the general look of the bride in the dress, as long as it fits correctly of course. With the right girdle fit to perfection, the wedding dress will look even more astounding.

Panties, Panty Hose, and Hosiery We can't say it enough: Fit is everything. When choosing hosiery, you have several choices: panties with thigh-high stockings and a garter belt, pantyhose with the panty and stockings as one piece, or thigh-highs that stay up on their own.

If you choose pantyhose, make sure the waistband isn't so tight that it shows through the dress. This is where the girdle helps smooth out a sharp division at your waist. If you go the garter belt route, don't go cheap. Clips on the cheap garter belts might slip. You don't want your stockings bagging around your ankles during that all-important first dance as husband and wife.

Before closing the sale on the wedding dress, take some time to put together well-fitted wedding lingerie. Make sure everything is snug and relaxed. It should fit with the wedding dress and should be discrete enough that it saves some of the surprise for later. The right bridal lingerie can make all of the difference in terms of the overall comfort and style of the special day.
