The guest list, the bridesmaids’ shoes, the favours, the flowers, the catering, who’s going to sit next to Auntie Pat…With so much to organise in the run-up to the big day, it’s enough to give even the most zen-like brides a total bridezilla meltdown.
Luckily, we’re here to take a bit of the ‘wedmin’ off your plate - shopping for plus size bridal lingerie. We know that tracking down the underwear that makes you look perky and in proportion on your wedding day can be a total game-changer to how confident you feel as you strut down that aisle. After all, every bride wants to find lingerie that makes her feel good in her body. Why would that change just because you’re a size 16 or beyond?
Beautiful brides come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to ensure you look and feel incredible while wearing your dress (and incredibly sexy once you’ve taken it off) whether you’re a curvy hourglass or a bootylicious pear.
From insanely comfy, curve boosting bridal shapewear to jaw-droppingly gorgeous wedding night outfits, our plus size bridal wear will keep you looking sweet at the altar and saucy in the hotel room.
So read our guide to plus size wedding undergarments to find the perfect style that suits your shape, then get ready to shine by day and sizzle by night.
If you’re an hourglass bride...
Kardashian curves are crying out for a body or a basque. By day, a smoothing, shaping body will help you sculpt a gorgeous silhouette, while still offering all the support and cleavage of your favourite plunge bra. Back at your hotel room, grab the chance to model a sexy basque that will highlight all of your best bits.
By day: The Charnos Superfit Full Cup Bodyshaper comes in white or almond, and will give you a great shape under your dress. It goes up to a FF cup and a 42 back, so it makes for perfect plus size bridal wear.
By night: Pack the Amour Basque in your wedding night bag and do a quick change when you get back to your hotel room. Your partner will never know you didn’t wear it all day! Styled with a floral lace overlay, there’s underwiring to lift your bust and removable suspender straps. It fastens with hook and eyes and is available up to a 44FF.
If you’re a pear shape...
For pear shapes, the perfect bridal silhouette is all about balance. By day, the right plus size wedding lingerie will slim your hips and boost your top half. All-in-one control suits with built-in shorts offer seam-free sculpting that can take inches off your thighs, but if they make you feel like a Mexican wrestler, there is a sexier option out there - retro, high-waisted briefs. By night, lingerie sets that draw attention to that fabulous waist are a curvy pear’s best friend.
By day: The Definitions control thong will give you great shape that slims your hips without flattening your booty. After something sexier? The Eden high waisted briefs will pull in fuller hips and smooth the stomach. Plus they’re classy, vintage and gorgeous.
By night: Lingerie sets with more shoulder detail can balance out the look of bottom heavy babes. Try this set from Suspense. Sold separately it has a double strap bra, sexy suspenders and a cute thong, and the bright white colour will keep the look tantalisingly sweet and innocent.
If you’re apple shaped:
If you carry your weight around the middle, shapewear will help to enhance your curves while smoothing your silhouette, helping you feel fabulous in your dress. Then, when it’s time for some alone-time with your new husband, put on a chemise to draw attention to your bust and long legs.
By day: This Definitions control slip lets you wear your own bra, but keeps your silhouette super smooth.
By night: A chemise that fits snugly at the bust then flows out loosely over the rest of your body, like our Opulence version, is great for maximising your feminine charms, while minimising any worries about your waist. And you can sleep in it, too!
