So, you finally find the perfect low or open back wedding dress but there’s one hitch: you don’t have the right shapewear to go along with it!
Don’t worry, that’s what I’m here to help you with! In this blog post, I’ll show you three solutions for what to wear under your wedding dress if it is backless or open-back in design. This way, you’ll have coverage and support without rearranging the straps, adjusting your bodysuit, or having that awful tulle rubbing against your skin all night.
Let’s get started!
Backless Shapewear for Wedding Dress
If you want a smooth foundation under your dress, choose nude undergarments for a white, ivory, or champagne-colored dress. White tends to show through (especially in photos — yikes!)
I did some digging and found really awesome shapewear that works great with a backless bridal gown. They solutions will offer fully supportive and comfortable undergarments that you’ll love to wear, even on such an important occasion as your wedding day.
It will provide you with the perfect foundation for the gown, making sure it is seamless, smooth, and won’t show any lines underneath.
GOOD TO KNOW: Wedding shapewear isn’t solely to contour or shape or flatter your figure. Undergarments provide a seamless and smoothing appearance and are ideal attire under every bride’s wedding dress, regardless of size. This is because it adds a comfortable layer that protects your skin from the materials and fabrics — like lace, tulle, taffeta, etc — that can become irritating against your skin all day. :)
Who wants uncomfortable material rubbing against their skin all day?! Not me!
Here are some of the top shapewear picks I found that are suitable for backless wedding dresses.
1. Strapless Bra + Shaper Short
This undergarment seamlessly shapes your midsection and bottom, as well as thighs. For an open back or backless wedding dress, you’ll wear this top-rated sticky bra for the top…
… and wear these shorts as the bottom shaper.
If you prefer full coverage, especially to keep warm at your winter wedding, wear these leggings that contour and shape with your long-length wedding dress. No one will even know! :)
2. Body Shaper With Low Back
