Some say nothing reveals a woman better than the innerwear she chooses for herself .
And when the occasion is your wedding night, you owe it to yourself to bring out that side of you that’s deeply personal and romantic. There are various kinds of lingerie in the market today – bras and panties, teddies, g-strings as well as elaborate two-piece nightwear sets. From demure elegance to erotic appeal, you can pick whatever you feel the sexiest in. Before you head out to get the perfect set for you, here’s a look at the most stylish options that adorns the wardrobes of New Age brides, who aren’t shying away from getting experimental.
Comfort comes first : If you’re confused as to whether you should opt for something sensuous or stick to the comfort factor, blindly go for the latter. Sex appeal can wait as you have the entire evening to impress your partner.
Material and texture : For summer weddings, natural fibres like cotton and silk would be the ideal choice, as it can absorb sweat and keep you cool throughout. Winter weddings will give you better options like satin and velour.
The right colour : Colour of your lingerie should be something that matches your skin tone, eye colour and hair. Women with lighter skin can choose pastel colours, while those with darker skin, can go in for brighter colours. Black suits just about every woman. Plain or printed lingerie send out different messages. While passion is best emphasized with fluffy cloud prints, plain colours speak volumes about your sophistication and sexuality.
Go to specialist shops : For wedding lingerie, you will always need a fitting session. Look for specialist shops that have enough choice to cater to your needs.
The bottom line is : Your bridal lingerie must be something that primarily appeals to you. Do not go by what others like, as you may feel uncomfortable and not-so-confident on the wedding day.
Turn on the heat with edible lingerie: Indulge in some naughty fun by using edible lingerie as a dessert. Even though the idea of edible lingerie is more than 30 years old, it has taken couples a while to mix their pleasures with something to do with food. Thongs as well as bras come in edible varieties. The most popular and favoured are the candy ones in bright colours made of fruit flavoured candy pieces. What’s more, these come with add-ons of chocolate or maple syrup! So, if red is your colour, go for a strawberryflavoured red or if black turns you on, you can pick blackberry jelly.
Bra and panty with sexy prints: There are bridal versions of nearly every type of lingerie. Something as simple as a bridal thong and a matching lacy bra can make you look more appealing and add a sense of allure that will drive your man crazy.

Corset: A corset or a bustier is the most structured lingerie garment. It pulls in the waist, flattens the tummy area and increases the appearance of the bust, giving a pleasing silhouette, the classic ‘hourglass’ figure. Most corsets lace up the front or the back, or both and can be sported by women of all sizes,from petites to pluses.

They are often trimmed with bows, ribbons, lace and ruffles and sometimes come with matching panties.

Also, gowns help you strike any mood, from modest and comfy to hot and dramatic. They are often sold as a set with matching robes, which greatly enhance their lovely effect.

Slip your legs into lovely net stockings to instantly spice up your appearance
Add ons: After you choose that perfect honeymoon lingerie, you may also want to consider buying a few accessories. The accessories need not be anything sleezy. Maybe you could buy a suspender belt, a wedding garter or fishnet stockings. Try to find something that you will love to wear and look good in.
Stylish bra accessories: Just detach your old straps and slip the new decorative or clear straps in place. Pick from glamorous beaded, jewelled or glitter embellished bra straps in stunning designs.
Garter and suspender belts: A garter belt is worn around the thigh, and has four or more clips on short to keep stockings up properly. Some garter belts are just for fun whereas others are designed for actual support of stockings throughout a busy day. Garter belts, of course, are colour matched to the panties and stockings.
Stockings: Stockings are leg-wear that cover from your toes to your thighs; each leg is separate and they are held up either by a garter belt or, in the case of stay-ups, by the elastic band in the thigh area. Lace stockings are also elegant and exciting; you could think of them as a style midway between fishnets and patterned stockings.
Stylish bra straps are functional, attractive and interchangeable between your outfits
