What Lies Beneath The Dress

What Lies Beneath The Dress

Every gal knows the power of intimates! And the under garments you chose for your wedding day are no exception!

Often a dress can be AMAZING but with the help of the right support, nip and tuck it can be transformed into “THE ONE” in an instance.

We are often asked for suggestions for the most suitable underwear to wear under our dreamy dresses in our styling sessions and with two of  our WM team members as experienced lingerie designers in a past life, we think we can shed some light on what’s going to flatter, firm and fake your way to a “Gigi- esque” flat tummy for your big day!

As we like to say.. you can never underestimate the power of a good pair of spanks.

So without further adeau, we introduce to you the wonder that is the Nancy Ganz “Backless Sculpt Jumpsuit”. We love this sassy little number and it looks fabulous under some of our best selling dresses such as the “My love”,”Romance Revived” and “Instant Crush”.



Perfect for backless dresses, it offers the support of an underwire bra but with your sexy back revealed (you’re welcome), tummy and thigh sculpting and the added bonus of  multi conversion straps for either a halter neck, cross over straps or regular straps. This gem supports up to a DDD cup too… we’ll take 10 please!

Next up is something that should be part of every gal’s intimates arsenal and that is the multi tasking strapless bra.

We love a few and for different reasons, so lets cut to the chase and show you the styles that are working hard, for all girls, everywhere!

The first cab off the rank is the “Backless Strapless” bra by Cotton On Body. Their catch phrase for this little gem is “backless, strapless and re-usable. What more fo you want?” And we couldn’t agree more.

It works perfectly under our beloved “Under your spell top”, “The One top” and “You had me at hello top”.


Backless strapless bra



As per it’s descriptor, this bra has a supportive underwire, is strapless and has adhesive clear side wings, which allows you to have the support at the front and sides without it being visible at the back. In addition to that, it comes in a universal shade of nude that works well with most skin tones and under most laces.

The other piece that is invaluable, is the perfect fitting nude strapless bra.. Whether it is fully structured aka underwire, boning, padding or a softer alternative such as a seam free option they all have a place and work for a different type of bride depending on your bridal style and the dress or separates you chose to wear.

Here are a few we think are great and have tried and tested with some of our most celebrated styles such as the “ You’ve got the love dress”, “My Love” tank & top and the “Truly Madly Deeply” dress.


Calvin Klein Seductive Comfort strapless bra bare


If you are after something with a little extra, maybe this Calvin Klein number is your thing.

With smooth cups and lace detailing throughout the under bust and wings, it brings a little more girliness without skimping on function.




My Fit FMO Smooth Push-Up Plunge Strapless Bra



Another strapless bra we love is the the Pleasure State “My Fit FMO Smooth plunge strapless bra”.

Boy, what a mouthful, but luckily it is more streamlined than its name. This hard working bra, has a low plunge neckline ( perfect for many of our pieces), a smooth finish ( vital under tulles and soft georgettes) even gives you a little boost and as a finishing touch (a Pleasure state signature) has two little crystals at the centre front.


Many of our fabulous skirts in our separates category are worn on the waist or are more body con, so the right pair of knickers are essential.

Whether that be a high waisted tummy shaping pair, a laser cut leg for a non “VPL” finish or a thigh sculpting set we have a few styles to share that work well under some of our favourite skirts and dresses.


Calvin Klein Invisibles Hipster


First up is the is the “Invisibles Hipster brief” from Calvin Klein - $29.95

This hipster boyleg is made out of soft paper-thin microfibre for a smooth minimal finish, has a laser cut leg & waist, which means when worn under even the most body con styles it will be like you have nothing on at all.


This style is perfect with our “Alive again Skirt” and “You’ve got the love” dress.




The next two pairs are amazing for sculpting and sit on the waist, so work well with our beautiful “White Bliss” and "Under Your Spell"skirts, as well as “Daydreamer” dress.


For a tummy shaping high waisted knicker, we think you can’t go past the Nancy Ganz sweeping curves” brief - $39.95. It’s high waisted, has moderate sculpting for both tummy and love handles ( gotta love that) and comes in a nice nude.   



Another one we love that also works well with our skirts is the Nancy Ganz “body architect short”- $94.95. It does pretty much the same thing as the brief above but adds in a little thigh control too.
And as a final little something from us to you… here are a few more tricks to have up your sleeve on your wedding day and maybe even in life!
