With so much to plan around your wedding day, sometimes choosing that perfect lingerie set is overlooked, but we believe that gorgeous, sensual and luxurious lingerie can add another really special element to your day, not forgetting into the evening and honeymoon!
Bridal lingerie (and indulging in beautiful lingerie at any time!) is about more than looking hot for your partner - it’s about feeling comfortable, empowered and confident in what's underneath - although making their jaw drop as you step out of your dress is always going to be an added bonus!
How fabulous to strut down the aisle knowing that you’ve got a killer lingerie set on under your dress (or ready for later) - a sexy little secret for just you and your new spouse to know about.
In this blog post, we will delve into the art of selecting the perfect wedding lingerie that will make you feel unstoppable, romantic and sexy from morning to honeymoon.
Don't dismiss your personal style & comfort levels.
When choosing lingerie, it’s essential to feel comfortable in yourself and the pieces. Think about what you like wearing, what you feel naturally sexy in, and where your comfort levels lie. Are you quite traditional? Do you want to go bold and bright? Are you going to be comfortable in suspenders all day, or do you want to save them for some playful dress-up on the honeymoon?
Explore options, shapes, styles, and materials to find a style that works for you.
Consider getting professionally fitted for your lingerie to ensure the perfect fit, we offer a fitting service free of charge at our Brighton boutique. It’s a good idea to call ahead so we can ensure our full attention, and feel free to bring along your dress to try on over the top.

- Speaking of your dress...
If you are planning on wearing something special under your dress, you will want to ensure it doesn't show or distract from your bridal look. Take into account the neckline, backline, and silhouette of your dress when selecting your lingerie.
A well-fitted strapless bra or corset could work well for a strapless gown. You could be more creative with some naughty knickers, or a statement suspender belt and stockings on your bottom half. Sheer and delicate fabrics work well under lightweight and ethereal wedding dresses, while seamless and nude-coloured options are ideal for form-fitting gowns.
If you are forced by your dress into simple shapewear, then don’t panic! Feel indulged in a silk robe whilst getting ready, pack something playful to change into for your wedding night, or treat your hubby to trussed-up lingerie on a special night of your honeymoon.
- Embrace Bridal Colours & Details
While traditional white or ivory lingerie remains a classic choice, don’t be scared to explore other colours with your bridal lingerie, popular colours include softer tones like blush, mints, and of course ‘something blue’.
Use your lingerie to pick out one of your wedding colours, or match your flowers or accessories. Whatever makes you feel amazing.
Look no further than sainted sisters, for stunning robes, pyjamas & slips that are ideal for getting ready and honeymoon lounging. You could even treat your bridesmaids to some beautiful matching silk for your morning photos.
- Beyond the Ceremony
Remember that wedding lingerie is not limited to just the ceremony. Choosing a variety of pieces that can be mixed and matched throughout your celebrations ensures you’ll feel gorgeous and treated from the morning with your bridesmaids to a hot honeymoon night out.
- Don't forget to accessories!
Additional accessories will keep you with options throughout your celebrations, making it easy to change up your look and have a special something for each night. A decorative garter is a traditional lingerie accessory and something you won't get many opportunities to wear - embrace it!
Some stunning decorative stockings never fail to add to the glamour of a set or a decorative body chain will dress up a honeymoon look, keeping you feeling sensual and bridal for as long as you please!
- A little something naughty.
A sexy surprise for your lucky partner, naughty crotchless knickers or some playful silky cuff add a fun twist and will provide plenty of fun in your honeymoon hotel.
