    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some bridal lingerie for my upcoming wedding in Novemeber, compling a wishlist of options but I'm finding it difficult to make a descion. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experiences they could share that would help me?

    For the day, I can't wear a bra because of how my dress is made, but I'd like some nice underwear. I'd also like a stocking and suspender set (particularly as it's likely to be cold) that are white and fit the bill. Perhaps this:

    with this:

    I never usually wear suspenders out of the bedroom or for long periods of time, so my question is are they comfortable for all day wear? Is it likely you'll be able to see thier outline through the dress, like VPL?

    I'd also like to hear any suggestions of a lingerie set for the wedding night, something that hides my belly and enphasises my breasts!

    I've been looking at these but niether have reviews so I'm not sure:

    I think the second chemise looks fabulous. Have you thought about a robe or so to go with it too? What size are you? I'll have a nosy around for you x

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=33864 this looks lovely and floaty and would conceal your tummy

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=34631 maybe something like this? Has something blue on it too!

    Thanks for the suggestions sugarboobies! :) I like the look of the top one!

    I also really like the idea of a lovely white robe too, I love this:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=36354

    but its a bit too pricy with everything else to buy on top.

    I should've mentioned in the post, I'm a size 14, and my thighs are pretty chunky so I sometimes have trouble with stockings really digging in and hold ups tend not to hold up so well. I just came across these beauties though:

    What about the shorter version of that robe? It's £17 pounds cheaper, but still beautiful and can definitely be classed as bridal!

    You have some lovely choices here. I have worn suspenders for a long time, and found them quite comfortable, they also make you feel really sexy too! There is also this white lace robe set which looks really pretty :) xx

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Great ideas for me to look at :)

    Sugarboobies I always find it pretty funny when size 14 is the XL size when the avarage UK dress size of a woman is size 16 (surely this means size 16 should be M, but what do I know?).

    Scorpius, do you sometimes find you can see the outline of the suspender belt through certain clothing? I really like the idea of wearing one but a bit worried about it showing.

    For my wedding I originally bought tights but then I suddenly thought what bad idea it was. I ended up purchasing suspender knickers. I was concerned the belt would just be yet another layer to add on. I had a corseted strapless dress with underskirts and a train (I only wanted a short prom dress but I went all girly in the shop ha)so it wasn't exact comfortable. Half an hour into the evening reception I was so hot and uncomfortable I ended up going to the toilets and taking off the suspenders and stockings.

    Wear something you want for the ceremony but be prepared to take them off after a few drinks and dances.

    I feel.your pain. When I buy something in a 22 it's like 4xl and makes me feel like a hippo. But it's all about what fits and makes you feel good. What about white crotchless tights for the day? Easy access to pee too!

    I don't normally wear stockings under something close fitting for the reason of being able to see the outline. I tend to wear them under a flouncy skirt or dress etc. You could always wear hold ups, as these would not have that issue or maybe suspender tights - here are some options that may be suitable :) xx

    Oh tell me about it, I'm 18, but go up sizes for nightwear.

    Thanks for the ideas everyone! Given what Rosycheek said about it being a bit much to wear with the dress I think I'm going to go for the patterned white hold ups for the day (and hope they do hold up) and some nice knickers.

    Got lots of great options to chose from for the night, thanks everyone! Hopefully I'll be able to chose something soon :)

    Hi. Congratulations on your wedding! How exciting!

    I wear stockings very regularly and occasionally hold-ups but I find that I'm far more nervous when I wear hold-ups, thinking they might fall down (past experiences haven't been great).

    What sort of dress are you wearing? Unless it's really tight and clingy, you'll not see the outline of any suspender belt. In the years I've been wearing belts, no-one has ever mentioned to me that they've been able to see a VSL (I made that up LOL). Don't forget, you can always try the undies with your wedding dress before the big day and check to see if you can see any bumps that you don't want showing through.

    If you're thinking of trying suspenders, make sure you get some with metal clasps as these will be far more secure in both gripping your stockings and keeping the length right. I'd also suggest a 6 strap belt (what I wear day to day) but these belts tend to not be as slinky and sexy as you may want for your wedding day.

    Also, can you practice wearing stockings beforehand? Perhaps try wearing them for work and see how you feel in them?

    Glad I could help. Just a wee thought, depending on the transparency of the fabric, there are blue knickers in the sale. That's if you are doing the old, new, borrowed and blue.

    Congratulations on the wedding that's so exciting 😄😄

    I love the ideas you have already they're all so stunning. Love both the robes suggested too. the first chemise is my preference from your links but there's not much in it.

    Great point about suspenders and buying the metal clasp onesas they're more secure 👍

    I wore suspenders in my wedding day but my dress is only right fitting on the top, it flows stunningly on the skirt section. Anyway the suspenders were fine because we married alone, got changed into my lingere after about two hours. As Rosy said, too long they'll get uncomfortable.

    I reckon that set of hold-ups which have the attachment to the waistband would be stunning with no fear of rolling down. I adore the set you linked 😍

    Love wedding plans 😍

    Sorry I've not helped much as I didn't feel I could offer more than what's been said but wanted to try hunni 💜xx

    Thanks guys :)

    Bexy I think you're right I could try the dress with a suspender belt and see if it works with the dress, as I have had bad experiences with hold ups in the past rolling down and really digging into my legs. I'm getting married in the morning so I'll be wearing this stuff all day so comfort is paramount.

    Slinky what do you mean by hold ups that have attachment to the waistband? Can you link me to some?

    Rosy I hadn't thought of blue knickers, but that is an interesting idea :)

    This beauty just arrived on the scene: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=36730

    Which I LOVE but it's so many pennies! I'm going to wait for a review of it I think before deciding if it's worth it. It'd be like changing into another tiny sexy wedding dress!

    Jezebella, I agree that you need to be comfortable on your wedding day so perhaps it's worth you trying stockings with a suspender belt a few times beforehand to see how they work for you. Do you have a job where you could try wearing them for the day?

    I wear them all the time as I find them to be really comfortable (certainly more so than tights or hold ups), as well as being more hygienic, practical and a bit sexier. I do however generally wear belts that have 6 straps and always with metal clasps to make sure the stockings stay up and in place. Unfortunately, I don't think you'll find those sort of belts on this website and I'd better not suggest anything publicly on here as I'll get in trouble with the mods!
