Beautiful bridal lingerie

(35 Posts)

I'm looking for something that I can wear under my wedding dress but also that I can wear, um, on my wedding night smile

It needs to be strapless and sturdy enough to hold my F cups- yet still be pretty.

I LOVE Rigby and Peller, but my budget won't stretch to that!

Any ideas, lovely S&B people?

Ta in advance

This collection is pretty

Or if you'd prefer a basque

fuzzywuzzy Tue 23-Apr-13 18:47:45

not sure if straps can be removed

StarlightMcKenzie Tue 23-Apr-13 18:48:42

I didn't wear anything. Couldn't afford it. Would that be an option?

And honestly, forget the wedding night.

strapless but not as pretty

fuzzywuzzy Tue 23-Apr-13 18:50:11

removeable straps

I had nightmares with this on my wedding. I have to say...I passionately hate Ann Summers but they have a collection at the moment called Anastasia Pearl & when you actually see it it's beautiful - nude with just a tiny hint of shimmer

Sidge- I would like a basque, I think. Forgot to mention dress is white so would like a white one, I think

Fuzzy- I like the Gok one, but it looks like a 'onesie'- not keen on a popper crotch!

Starlight- I've never gone braless and don't think I'd be comfortable. To add, we're getting married at 10am (and eloping, so no big 'do) so want something that'll stay put and still look nice at 10pm!

Unfortunately the range of nice basques in F cups (or bigger) is pretty pathetic!

this one is older stock but might still be available
not a basque but very reliable and would stay put all day

In your position I had a steel boned corset custom made (not cheap but fabulous!)

I went with hot pink on my wedding night and just happened to get a FF cup something in the sale in La Senza just before the wedding. Was a tenner! Wore hot pink for wedding night and kept the little white la Senza number for the honeymoon. DH loved it! grin

Oh and by the way I would recommend something 'nice' for during the day and then sexy for night. You may want a quick wash or shower in between! It's hot and can be a bit uncomfy in a dress.

Yoghurty Tue 23-Apr-13 20:18:38

Statistically- I love that figleaves bustier! That's pretty and probably the closest to what I was thinking

Yoghurty Tue 23-Apr-13 20:21:14

OrangeLily- I like the idea of hot pink! The top of my dress is lace thou, so not sure it'd stay hidden!

We'll be going back to change for dinner so I'll have chance to have freshen up wink

Buy yourself something nice to change into for 'later' - you will probably need more sensible (boring) type undies under your dress.

Yoghurty Tue 23-Apr-13 20:36:49

I've just found this website and this basque- a bit more than I wanted to spend. What do you think?

Yoghurty Tue 23-Apr-13 20:39:38

Link didn't work

Yoghurty Tue 23-Apr-13 20:45:54

Can anyone lend me £500?

StatisticallyChallenged Tue 23-Apr-13 21:04:24

The first one is the same as the figleaves one I think.

Can't help noticing the obvious fail on the 2nd "model wears a 34B"

jennylindinha Tue 23-Apr-13 21:07:37

You could try ebay, plenty here just doing a search for "34F basque" and some bargains! smile

StatisticallyChallenged Tue 23-Apr-13 21:08:44

30 and 32F

fuzzywuzzy Tue 23-Apr-13 21:10:38

the agent provocateur one is beautiful, but not available in an F.


Gingersnap88 Tue 23-Apr-13 21:13:12

How about the Gossard Oh La La range?
Can't link on my ipad but:

Very pretty and not too bad, £59 for the corsalette smile

fuzzywuzzy Tue 23-Apr-13 21:14:51

not sure if this is a lace up corset

tipp2chicago Tue 23-Apr-13 21:23:13

I've had that Hestia Masquerade Basque. It is beautiful. I didn't realise it was still available.
