Finding plus size bridal underwear can seem daunting - but that doesn't have to be the case. Your bridal lingerie is the base to your wedding dress that'll not only make a huge difference to the look of your outfit, but will also keep you feeling comfortable and confident all day (and night!). 

Katie Weir from plus size lingerie brand Curvy Kate advises: "Take your plus size bridal lingerie with you to every fitting, as a great bra is only going to enhance the fit of each dress. If you need help with finding the right bra, seek professional help and ensure you have images of the dress to show the fitters as they can fully help find the perfect solution."

It is also important to be aware of your wedding dress silhouette, what you want to emphasis and above all what makes you feel good. "Your wedding night is all about you, so wearing something that makes you feel confident and sexy is everything you need," says Playful Promises brand director Anna Sampson.

Top Tips For Plus Size Wedding & Honeymoon Lingerie 

  • Getting the correct fit of lingerie is very important - believe it or not, over 80% of women in the UK are wearing the wrong size. Katie Weir from Curvy Kate recommends, "Always seek professional advice and opt for a lingerie brand or professional which has a wide range of back and cup sizes,  A-D cup just isn’t going to be a positive experience for you. But, also if you are currently for example a 38C don’t shy away from brands which start at a D cup as once you have been professionally fitted, you might just find yourself within that size range!"
  • Comfort is crucial, whether you're choosing lingerie for under your wedding dress or the honeymoon. "The key is the fit and also knowing the styles which are best suited to your bust," says Katie. If you don’t have time for a virtual bra fitting, Curvy Kate have a bra fit finder quiz.
  • "Take your bridal lingerie with you to every fitting as a great bra is only going to enhance the fit of each dress," recommends Katie. "Remember to bring all of the options (a strapless, plunge, and a balcony bra) so that you aren’t left feeling negative about your boobs ruining a dress."
  • Your wedding night is the perfect opportunity to wear a seriously sexy set of lingerie but Katie emphasises that you should, "Wear what makes you feel the sexiest, don’t worry about impressing your partner – you already have as they are marrying you. Wear something that makes you feel incredibly confident, comfortable, and uplifted. The sexiest thing a woman can wear is confidence."
  • Anna Sampson from Playful Promises suggests considering suspenders and stockings, explaining, "They are a fun addition to a luxurious lingerie set. If you struggle with the clasps, try attaching them to the stockings before you put them on, then pull everything on like tights/pantyhose. For extra spice, consider a quarter cup bra with nipple pasties, these peek-a-boo styles are perfect for channelling your inner burlesque diva, without losing bra support."
  • Heading somewhere hot for your honeymoon? "If you are going away to a tropical destination then opt for bralettes, mesh bras and even swimwear which can double up as a bra. The mesh bras are perfect for hot locations and the bralettes are great for lounging and travelling as they are super comfy when in reclining positions without the underwires," says Katie. 

Do You Have to Wear White Lingerie For Your Wedding Day?

There's no rule book to say you have to wear a specific style or colour of lingerie on your wedding day although it's important to note you might not want your underwear showing underneath your wedding outfit. Katie suggests, "Wear what you love, but the best option is skin tone or neutral lingerie as this will be more invisible under a white or ivory dress!"

Where to Buy Wedding Lingerie?

You might be wary of buying wedding lingerie online, but many of the brands above have remote bra fitting services so you can find the right set for your body. Curvy Kate, Pour Moi and Panache are just some of our favourites for giving support and keeping you comfortable. 

If you're after some sexy plus size bridal lingerie, look to sex toy favourite Ann Summers. Playful Promises also offer stunning sets and designs that you won't find anywhere else. 

Do You Wear Lingerie Under Wedding Dress?

Emma Woodrow, Lingerie and Hoisery Buyer at Pour Moi, says that, " Some dresses may be so fitted you may not require underwear underneath, and some may require you to get some shapewear depending on how comfortable you feel."

There are no rules for your big day. If you want more support during the day, opt for some shapewear or a strapless bra with control pants under your dress during the day. For the evening if you fancy wearing something more sexier then go for a sizzling set with garter and suspenders!"

She always advices buying your wedding dress first as this is key to deciding which type of underwear you need!
