Who Should Wear Bridal Bras and Corsets?

Who should wear strapless bridal bras?

  • Women who have firm, perky breasts
  • Women who don't need as much help with support or shaping
  • Women who don't want the feel of a longline bra
  • Women with torso lengths that aren't conducive to a longline or corset bra (short torso - these bras may be too long; long torso - the bras may not come down far enough and the bottom of the bra could show through the corset of the dress)

Who should wear longline bridal bras?

  • Women with fuller breasts who have trouble getting adequate support from a strapless bra
  • Women who want a little extra cinching and shaping, but not too much
  • Women who don't want to worry about bra slippage throughout the day

Who should wear bridal corset bras?

  • Women who want more support than a strapless bra can provide, typically due to fuller or heavy breasts
  • Women who want more substantial shaping and cinching than a longline bra can provide
  • Women who want a sexy bra they can wear as lingerie to surprise their new spouses on the wedding night
