If you’re going super sheer

Sheer dresses are an ongoing major trend both on the red carpet and for weddings. For the brides who dare to bare, your best bet would be nipple tape or covers. Alternatively, you can go for a body suit that matches your skin tone, like Felicia Chin wore to go with a Paolo Sebastian dress for the Star Awards in 2016

#2 If you’re going for a curve-hugging number 

Enhance those curves with shapewear that smooths all the lumps and bumps, or if you require a little tummy control (we’re all going to need it after a fabulous wedding dinner, after all). A slip is great for streamlining your siilhouette, but if yours is a strapless number, try high waist briefs or shorts so the straps don’t show. And for slinky, drapey fabrics, opt for seamless styles – you don’t want any lines or your VPL showing!

#3 If you’re taking the dive

Deep necklines are fabulous for creating a sexy appeal as well creating the illusion of a longer neck and elongated torso – and a plunge bra is perfect for this look. Get one with a push-up effect if you’re gunning for a more lifted look. If yours have sheer straps or a neckline that dives right to the navel, consider getting your cups sewn in instead.

#4 If you’re flaunting a sexy back

Whether you’re going for a fully open back or delicate portrait details, adhesive or stick-on bras are your best friends. We love this thoughtful Bridal Essentials Bundle by Nu Bra which also includes padded panties for a perkier derriere, as well as Skin Prep sachets to help your stick-ons adhere (as well as come off) easily. One thing to note about stick-on bras: They might not provide adequate support if you’re on the bustier side. If your open back isn’t that low, a low back bra might be a better option.
