Wedding Day Undergarment Essentials

Whether you are the bride-to-be or a guest, the right undergarments are essential to feel comfortable and beautiful on your wedding day. The wrong undergarments can ruin your look or create a visible panty line, so it is important to be prepared.

Undergarments aren't just about looking good and feeling comfortable; they also help you maintain a healthy body. This includes a well-fitted, supportive bra and shapewear to smooth out any lines and give you the body shape you want.

Strapless Bra:

For most brides, a strapless bra is an important part of their undergarments arsenal. It should provide support, be comfortable to wear and stay in place without sliding or showing under the dress. You should look for a bra that offers deep cups, side boning and wide bands that won't slide.

Undersummers Classic Shortlettes:

The high waist of these slip shorts provides a panty-line free rash guard, which can be worn under any dress or skirt to prevent your thighs from chafing. They are available in a range of sizes and feature a variety of colors.


While at Undersummers, we aren't about shaping and squeezing, sometimes a bride wants just this so we kept it on our list!  Depending on your preference, shapewear can be a great way to slim and smooth any unwanted lines under your gown. It can also help you to feel more confident and comfortable in your dress. It can be a little difficult to find the perfect shapewear that fits your body and style, so if you're unsure of what to buy, check with a lingerie store for tips on finding the best fit.  This is recommended for a fitted gown.

Slip Shorts:

If you are wearing a ballgown, A-line, or sheath dress, then a slip short is a must! They are designed to stop inner thigh chaffing and add comfort from inner thigh chafe, making you feel even more stunning.

They are available in a variety of colors and styles to suit any body type and style. You should always try them on to make sure they are comfortable and that the fit is correct.

Seamless Underwear:

If you are wearing a form-fitting wedding gown, then seamless underwear is a must. This will avoid the possibility of a VPL (visible panty line) under your dress, says Dionne Morrison, a bra fit expert at Baba's Lingerie in Kingston, Jamaica.

These undergarments are made with a silky-smooth fabric that helps to prevent any visible seams and creases, as well as a silicone strip that deters digging at the waistline. They are also incredibly lightweight and easy to put on.



Meet our founder: CarrieRae

Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution.  Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses.  Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable.  The idea of wearing a breezy dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem:  The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wear that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.
