Beautiful Bridal Lingerie To Suit Your Body Shape

Whether you have an hourglass shape or athletic build, the experts over at Ultimo have revealed the best underwear for your big day.

We love lingerie, and deciding what to wear on your special day is kind of a big deal. Second to slipping into your dream wedding dress, the ideal lingerie will help you feel confident and beautiful, as well as smoothing and supporting you to your perfect proportions and beyond!


We asked the team at Ultimo for their top tips on finding the dream underwear to rock under your gown. 

Ultimo Bridal Basque, £68

Hourglass shape:

If you have Kardashian-like curves this is the ultimate opportunity to wear a beautiful basque. If you are flaunting a fishtail dress, the Ultimo Basque smooths, sculpts and supports your silhouette as well as offering the support and cleavage of your favourite plunge bra. 

If you are modelling a sweetheart neckline, try the lace detailed strapless basque from Elomi. If you have slightly smaller curves, the Wonderbra Glamour Basque is your new best friend. 

Boux Avenue Angelina Satin High Waisted Briefs, £28

Pear shape:

High-waisted underwear works well with this shape as it pulls in fuller hips and smooths the stomach. As well as the fact that they are classy, vintage and altogether gorgeous. The Ultimo Eternità High Waist Brief cinches the waist and works well under A – line dresses. If you are wearing a tight fitted skirt, the satin Boux Avenue High Waisted Briefs are seductively silky and you can’t see the line!

Ultimo Bridal French Knickers, £22

Athletic shape:

Lingerie with intricate details such as ruffles, bows and frills accentuate the hips and work really well under bigger skirts. Feel flirtatious in Ultimo’s French Knickers or invest in the embroidered french knickers from Les Trois Sours

Bigger bust:

Thankfully, there is a way to look gloriously busty and avoid unfortunate mishaps all at the same time. The Glamour Ultimate Strapless Bra by Wonderbra looks amazing under one-shoulder dresses and  Ultimo Fuller Bust Low Back Strapless Bra looks clean and classy.

Boux Avenue Tori Lace Plunge Bra, £26

Smaller bust: 

The removable gel pads in the Ultimo Multiway Plunge are a great way to show-off your curves in any off the shoulder dress. Boux Avenue’s Tori Lace Plunge Bra celebrates your cleavage as well as detailing traditional, pure and pretty lace.
