Bra Buying 101 for Brides – Part Two


Today we present Part Two of Bra Buying 101 for Brides by guest blogger, Amie Heenan, co-owner of Toronto’s Melmira Bras & Swimsuits. Amie helps brides understand that what they wear underneath their gown can make all the difference in the gown’s fit, look and comfort. Take it away Amie:


“I have the bra, but I’m a bit sad; it isn’t as pretty as I would have liked!”

The perfect undergarments for a heavy dress sometimes won’t be the sexiest pieces you’ve every worn.  The fact is few women can get away without a control garment under such an important dress. The secret is understanding that properly fitted undergarments will ensure you look absolutely sensational in your dress on the most important day of your life.

The goal of a fitting is to tap into your needs and wants as it relates to your body and your wedding dress. The fitter will find undergarments that not only enhance your unique silhouette, but change the way you will carry yourself down the aisle  – as if an invisible string is pulling you up as you walk with a renewed sense of confidence. A glowing bride indeed.

Remember, you’ll also need something for after the wedding is over, and you are alone with your handsome new husband.  This is where we can have some fun!  Getting fitted for a bra and panty set, a negligee, or even a sexy bustier and garters, will guarantee an amazing first night of the rest of your life with your soul mate.




But I’m On a Budget!

As with most purchases investing in a good quality bra actually saves you money in the long run.  You look better (with clothes on and off ), being lifted where you should be, accentuating the waistline, and improving posture, And we all know when we look good we feel good. Treated properly, good quality undergarments can last for years; a true investment that will last long after your wedding day is but a happy memory.
