You’ve got your dream dress; now, what are you going to wear under it? If you’re feeling lost when it comes to wedding undergarments, you’re not alone! Many brides are in the same boat. The process of choosing a bridal bra is different than that of choosing an everyday bra. Never fear—we’re here to walk you through it!
Longline bras from the Wedding Shoppe are the way to go!
When it comes to wedding undergarments, there is one thing you need to remember: Longline bras are your best option. A longline bra is like a normal strapless bra, except that it has a bodice that usually extends to or past your waist. The advantage to this design is that it provides much more support than a normal strapless bra, due to the structure provided by strategically placed boning. This means that you won’t have to be constantly pulling up your bra to keep it where it’s supposed to be and, in turn, your “ladies” will stay exactly where they’re supposed to. We sat down for a chat with our store manager, Kim, to pick her brain about choosing the correct bra for your big day. She told us about her two personal favorite longline bras, both of which are available online or in-store, and we’re excited to share them with you today! Kim has worked extensively with our alterations department, and if there were such a thing as a bridal bra expert, well, she fits the bill!

is Kim’s favorite longline bra. In addition to the above mentioned boning, it has a low v-back, so you don’t have to worry about it peeking out the back of your dress. It also has push up cups with demi coverage, perfect for smaller-chested brides.

comes in a close second. It has boning and a full coverage cup, which is better for larger-busted ladies. You can’t go wrong with either of these bras. Not only are they both made from lightweight fabric, making them nearly invisible, but they can also be sewn into your wedding dress, meaning you won’t have to worry about tugging on your dress to keep it where it should. Isn’t that awesome? One of the worst things about wearing a strapless bra is its tendency to fall down. Problem solved! Shop our entire collection of wedding undergarments
