Choosing a wedding gown is hard enough and when it comes to bridal shapewear, there is a plethora of choices so it can be pretty intimidating trying to navigate this process.

Although shapewear is not mandatory under your bridal gown, but if if you are looking for a little extra contouring, support and coverage, it may be the perfect solution for you. Choose the wrong shapewear and you may find yourself having to deal with wardrobe malfunction like visible panty lines.

A good bridal shapewear is all about enhancing curves and ensuring that your wedding dress fits like a glove. The days of constricting and crushing body shapers that leaves everyone breathless are gone. Wedding dress shapewear have come a long way and today, thanks to innovative fabrics and modern designs, shapewear have become functional, breathable and comfortable to wear all day.

How To Find The Right Wedding Shapewear

If you are going to wear shapewear on your wedding day, you would be wearing it all day long. Do not let uncomfortable foundation garment ruin your wedding experience. There are many high quality and comfortable wedding shapewear out there to choose from. Below are some useful tips to make finding the right wedding shapewear a breeze.


When picking out wedding shapewear, it is important to consider the structure and compression level you prefer.

No one wants a body shaper that will roll up or down, making you uncomfortable and that you would be constantly fidgeting trying to adjust the shapewear.

For gentle smoothing, light to medium compression shapewear is a great option if you prefer something that offers the desired coverage and minimal shaping.

For firm control and sculpting, shapewear with higher compression are the best option.


There are many shapewear pieces that are designed to complement different necklines and style of the wedding dress. For example, if you are going to wear a dress with plunging neckline, then a bodysuit with plunge neck will be able to offer the support you need while appearing seamless.


In order to avoid any visible lines, you would need to focus on overall silhouette of your dress. If you wedding dress is form-fitting, a thong style bodysuit or shaping panty is necessary to achieve a seamless appearance.


It is recommended to choose wedding shapewear in nude or light-colored tones to blend seamlessly underneath your wedding gown. If you want to wear a white or black shapewear, then go for it. Just make sure that it does no show through with your wedding dress.
