Gorgeous and comfortable bridal lingerie: a must for larger cup sizes

Comfortable and stylish bridal lingerie? Yes please! A comfortable fit with the right support is even more important for larger cup sizes. Below we share the ultimate tips from our lingerie stylists to find lingerie that combines style and comfort.

A comfort bra: must-have bridal lingerie

You want to enjoy every moment of your wedding day, without getting distracted by uncomfortable lingerie, like these common fit issues experienced by women with a larger cup size. When it comes to bridal lingerie, comfort should always come first. If you have a larger cup size, it's even more important for your lingerie to fit like a dream. The perfect fit and the right support are crucial for your look, your comfort, and your confidence!

What about style?

Should you avoid feminine lace and opulent embroidery when shopping for wedding lingerie? Absolutely not! A lingerie styling session can help you discover sets that combine a comfortable fit with a feminine look and feel. Our lingerie stylists will help you find the most flattering set for your body type that matches your personal style and your wedding gown.

Tip: Take your bridesmaids with you to the styling appointment and make it a fun girls’ day! This is also the perfect opportunity for them to buy their own lingerie set for the big day."

Smooth, lace, or both?

If you love lingerie with lace and embroidery, you probably chose a romantic dress with elegant draping and appliqués. As long as your lingerie doesn’t show under your gown, feel free to choose a set with lace and feminine details. The sturdy PrimaDonna fit creates incredible lift and support, and creates a lovely shape under your wedding dress. If you chose a sleek, fitted gown, a smooth and seamless bra is the best choice. A style with preformed padded cups creates the perfect rounded shape. Are you a summer bride? Choose a style with ultra-light spacer cups, which are smooth and wonderfully airy in warmer weather.

If you want to swap your smooth and comfortable wedding-day lingerie for something a little racier for your wedding night or honeymoon, buy two sets! Treat yourself and your husband-to-be to a fun surprise.

Do or don’t: shapewear under your wedding dress

If you plan on dancing until the early hours on your wedding day, shapewear probably isn’t the best option. However, if shapewear is a must under your wedding dress or wedding outfit, an elegant body or a strapless corset are great alternatives. These comfortable lingerie styles have a slight shaping effect for an ultra-feminine silhouette.

Comfortable strapless bridal lingerie

If you think having larger breasts means you can’t wear the bustier dress of your dreams, then you haven't tried the strapless bras by PrimaDonna. Our strapless bandeau bras are available up to a G cup and have a smooth, comfortable fit. They always stay put and provide the very best support for larger cup sizes.

If you prefer a dress with straps and a plunging neckline, wear a deep-plunge bra or a balcony bra underneath. These PrimaDonna styles accentuate your curves and provide irresistible lift.

Briefs, stockings, and garters

Last but not least, choose matching briefs for an elegant look that will boost your confidence. You can choose from dozens of styles: from luxurious thongs with stretch lace on the back to high-waisted briefs that are invisible under your dress for a streamlined look. Some high-waisted briefs even have a slight shaping effect, which is perfect for creating a feminine hourglass silhouette.

If you plan to wear stockings under your dress (as per tradition), try them on first to make sure they’re comfortable. Stockings can take some getting used to if you don’t wear them often.

Comfort tip: Avoid body lotion, choose high stockings with a wide silicone band, and wear garters for as short as possible. A final golden tip: In photos, garter belts are worn over the briefs. But if you wear them under your briefs, it’s more comfortable and makes it easier to use the bathroom. Even better: Fasten the garter straps directly to your briefs or corset!
