As if shopping for your dream wedding dress wasn’t stressful enough, you also have to pick out the perfect lingerie for your wedding night! There are so many things to consider when shopping for the perfect outfit to wear on your first night as a married woman so we thought we would relieve some of the pressure with our top picks of wedding lingerie and tips on how to choose the best wedding lingerie for you.

1. Consider your body shape

It’s important to think about your shape when buying wedding lingerie. After dressing yourself for many years, you have no doubt figured out what shapes already flatter your body. When shopping for wedding lingerie don’t throw all those lessons out the window – use them! Choose something that you love but that is also flattering to your shape.

 2. It’s all in the details

Choose lingerie that has a sexy or sassy detail to it. Whether it be fur trim detail, satin ribbons or bows, or diamantes a little sexy detail will go a long way.

4. Don’t Skimp on quality

Your wedding night is a special occasion and you should invest in good quality lingerie. We’re not saying you should break your budget but rather make sure that you invest in the best you can afford. You might think that you will only wear it once, but there are still anniversaries, birthdays, and date nights to celebrate after your wedding night!

We love this Lace Camisole (R150) from Woolworths. It’s simple but oh-so-beautiful and is a great choice for ladies on a budget. Pair it with a pair of pretty panties and knee-high stockings and you’ll feel like a million bucks.

Your wedding night is definitely a great time to play with lingerie but make sure you also pick something that suits your personality or you won’t feel comfortable. You want to feel super sexy when revealing your outfit to your new husband, you don’t want to be nervous or anxious about whether or not it’s too crazy or too much.
