"I'm so tiny that lingerie fits me weird. That is until my friend, Ann, got a referral to a fitter from you for herself. It made all the difference in how I looked in my gown and how I felt about how I looked. Plus it was all totally comfortable and I looked beautiful!" Dottie and John, Dowagiac, MI
Foundation garments enhance your figure by improving your posture, and cinching. They provide exceptional support for smoothing the bodice of your gown.
Whatever style you choose, if your gown or dress fabric is clingy or lightweight, look for foundation garments that are absolutely smooth.
Embellished, embroidered and more ornate foundation garments are for gowns and dresses in fabrics with more weight and texture as the ornamentation won't show through.
Underneath the foundation garments, it's still you, only better. No matter how you feel about your form on your wedding day, when you present it in a way you think is beautiful, you're a stunner.
Comfort wearing foundation garments is essential as you'll be wearing it all day under your wedding gown or dress.
A foundation garment is often a strapless, fitted one-piece bodice that extends from under the shoulders over the torso. You wear it to support and maintain a given shape. Usually, a foundation garment is stiffened with flexible plastic boning and closes in the front or back with hooks-and-eyes or lacing.
If you're form is spilling out of the top or side of the foundation garment it looks vulgar and haphazard. Just go up a bodice size or try a different style for the proper fit and lift.
When you go questing for this foundation garment, be prepared to spend some time shopping. Most likely, you'll need to try on several styles. If there's a lingerie store near you, make an appointment with an experienced salesperson for help with styles, sizes and fitting.
If you go to a department store lingerie department it's not likely you'll get the essential help you need.
After you have the bride lingerie, then take ALL of it -- that is, every foundation garment you will be wearing under your gown or dress, and your bridal shoes -- with you to your wedding gown fitting.
During the fitting is the time to see if any bride lingerie is showing through or riding up and out of your gown or dress. Failing to do this leads to an uncomfortable bride who is not at her best on her big day. This discomfort shows in the pictures forever. And it's so easily avoidable.
