Ladies: listen up! Today we’re talking about what to wear under the dress. The wedding dress, to be exact. It’s important to wear the proper wedding shapewear to get that perfect fit. Today we’re tackling underwear. Bridal lingerie. Support. Proper straps. Size. Fit. Comfort. Pulling it all in. Tying it all together. Wearing something that makes you confident. Comfortable. Happy. Hugging those curves. The proper fit is the most important thing when it comes to the perfect wedding dress and, by picking the wrong undergarments, you could be getting a less-than-perfect fit. Read on to find out what to wear under your wedding dress and why it’s important. Oh, and gentlemen, if you’re reading this, head over to this post while us ladies get down to business.

We spotted this helpful wedding dress necklines guide that we thought would help you — and many other brides! — as you shop for the perfect dress.
