Foundation Wear -- Key to a great look in your wedding dress!

Getting married ... suffice it to say you want to look your best ... and so does your mother and mother-in-law and all those bridesmaids you asked to be in the wedding!

The right dress is key, but what's under the dress is as important as the dress. Your under garments are going to help pull the dress and your look together.

Whether you need to slim down a few sizes or you just want to hide that small (or large) tummy bulge, we suggest reshaping as an excellent solution.

Shapewear has been around for years. It's the new version of
the girdle, but more comfortable and in this case, medical grade. Shapewear, not only pulls the bulges in, but it also helps correct your posture and give you a nice smooth line in your clothes. You can take inches off your waist, enhance your breasts and even decrease your thighs.

Chances are you will have to buy all new under garments for the dress anyway, why not check into the shapewear option? The more support you have in your wedding dress, the better the dress will look which also translates into better pictures and a happier bride and groom.

Upper Part of the Body

Short fitting undergarments that extends to the ribs, pushing the breasts up and reshaping the waist are ideal for a low back dres, sleeveless and tight fitting innerwear that covers the entire torso.

Lower Part of the Body

Undergarments that provides support for your back, lifts your buttocks and totally shapes your hips is the way to go for the lower part of the body. The weight of a wedding dress can add additional stress on your back so you need an undergarment that is durable enough to provide the support you need yet comfortable enough to withstand long hours of wear. (You also want to be able to sit.)

A good bet, is to order your garment when trying on wedding dresses. It will alleviate a lot of stress! Don't wait until the week before the wedding to order your undergarments; you want to be sure they fit well with your dress and any of the alterations made to your dress. It should fit well with your gown and flatter your shape. The most important factor in purchasing your bridal undergarment is comfort. Peace of mind is an essential issue on your wedding day.

Don't forget, you can also change the shape of your body by wearing shapewear on a daily basis. The Body Magic is perfect for reducing the thighs, stomach, butt, waist, etc. Feel free to browse our products page and shop at our online store.

And don't forget ... the most important beauty secret of your big day is one that is free .... your smile!
