TOP TIPS: The bridal lingerie edit by Tallulah
Being above Isliington's first and finest, luxury lingerie boutique, certainly has lots of advantages for our brides and myself. Well, and truly Tallulah'ed, I can personally vouch for how amazing this lingerie is, it makes you feel incredibly special, and feels so good you don't even know you're wearing any undies! That's how it should feel on your day, feel the best you can and be the best version of yourself. Once you've found the perfect gown, it can be tricky to find just the right undies. To help demystify the process, inspired by over 15 years of fittings of luxury lingerie, Tallulah Lingerie's latest blog is all about their all important seven top tips on finding the best bridal lingerie... read the full article here, with a summary of their tips below.
1. Don't skip the foundations
What we call foundations here at Tallulah's is the magic that will make your dress fall on your body like it was sewn on! Bridal gowns can be tricky, even if custom made, the fabrics are delicate and the details to make it so special will need the proper lingerie to do her justice. Think low cut basques for open back gowns, smoothing high knickers for barely there satin slip dresses, or simply a smooth strapless bra for your bustier look. Foundations are essential. There is a wide selection of basques available which can be altered to be just perfect for your dress.
2. Timing is key
Try not to leave your lingerie fitting to the last minute. First off, it goes hand in hand with your dress fitting for the foundations. Make sure you have your lingerie in mind when selecting a style. We can make magic happen but always better to know what we are working with. To create the perfect trousseau items, may need to be ordered or even made with our bespoke service. We will make sure to get in the right fit or size for you, so it is recommended to book your appointment early on. Your lingerie will be an important part of your wedding as it is the only thing from the very start to way after the big day and honeymoon that you will wear day after day.
3. Your 'getting ready' outfit
We've found over the years that many of our brides will have pictures taken while getting ready in the morning. Those are beautiful memories to catch on film with the bridesmaids, friends and family around you, prepping for the big event.
Even if it is just a few snaps on your iPhone, you will want to cherish that memory forever. 💖
To make these moments perfect, we can help you create a beautiful 'morning of the wedding' look. Whether you want to be a showstopper in a beautiful antique kimono or prefer the ultimate understated glamour of a delicate silk ans lace slip with matching robe, we pretty much have it all!
4. Start with your colour palette
As we've said before, the bridal trend is confirming to be more than just ivory! We recommend working from a colour palette rather than just an outfit you had in mind. This way you might stumble upon a few key pieces you would never have thought of trying, and the results are always stunning!
Pastels are hot hot hot and we've got lots to offer from decadent blush, almond green to candy pink and tiffany blues. But maybe darker tones are more your vibe? Think deep navy and magenta silk with delicate black lace for your wedding night...
5. Don't forget your pearls!
We cannot say it enough, the Pearl thong is a must. One of our best selling items here at the boudoir, the pearl thong ticks all the boxes. It is delicate and pretty in its ivory (or black) lace, has the cheeky factor of massaging pearls AND will complement any lingerie outfit to perfection! Surprise your future husband with this cheeky item while having dinner on your Honeymoon. A simple whisper under the table that you are wearing your pearls and just let them do the rest... we guarantee you will not be having the dessert trolley in the restaurant, instead YOU will be the dessert!
6. Be prepared
Make sure you stock up on a few things. Being prepared means less stress on the big day. Always get extra pairs of hosiery just in case and fresh knickers for the rest of the evening. Wedding dresses are not always the most comfortable to dance the night away in. If that's the case, maybe ask us about different lingerie options for the second part of the event. Yes, just as dress change is now a thing, lingerie change can sometimes be essential to have a good time at your reception!
7. Have fun
Remember, this is the fun part! So don't hesitate to try different looks, we are here to help you do just that and are more than happy to show you all the beautiful things we have in the Boudoir. We'll make sure to give you the full Tallulah Experience 😉
Building your lingerie trousseau doesn't need to be only smooth and shaping. Think about all the dreamy lingerie you will get to wear on your honeymoon. And how oh so sexy it will be for your partner to see you in your cheeky belt set or glamorous silk gown you've picked out just for the two of you.
