How to get the Best Fit for Wedding Day Underwear
Nudea Underwear believe a good day starts with good underwear, and for one of the most important days of your life you want to make sure you have great underwear with a great fit! Read on for the expert advice for wedding day lingerie shopping…
How you look in your aisle style and how you feel on your wedding day work hand in hand, and one of the best ways to ensure you feel confident in your dress is to get the right underwear! Around 80% of British women are reported to be wearing the wrong bra size, so we spoke to the experts at Nudea Underwear, a sustainable brand that merges comfort with function, to get you all the top tips on how to find underwear that fits your body and makes you look your best.
Well-fitting underwear is the foundation of a great outfit and there is nothing worse than tugging at straps under your dress on your wedding day, so the experts at Nudea recommend a bra that is smoothing and feels as though you have nothing on. This type of bra is perfect for all the layering that comes with wearing a wedding dress and means unsightly seams and straps don't show through your wedding dress.
Wedding outfits can put all sorts of demands on our underwear drawers as we’re looking for smooth, bump-free styles with sheer fabrics while above all, we want to be comfortable and stay the right temperature all at the same time! It may seem like an ambitious list, but, Nudea’s range of lightweight bras has the answer to all sorts of wardrobe dilemmas.
Their collection offer the brand's iconic 4 hook & eyes for all day comfort, support and longevity as well as three-way straps allowing for cross back and halter neck style dresses with no unsightly straps, meaning you can personalise your bra to your chosen dress style.

For April 2023, Nudea has re-imagined their underwired bras with improved style and comfort and we think The Boss Full Coverage Bra would be a great option for many brides. This super-soft, moulded bra in new lightweight Stretch fabric - a recycled buttery soft-microfibre - gives double the support, whilst maintaining an invisible finish. Meaning you get all day comfort and ultimate support with no lines peeking through your wedding dress!
Here's why we love this bra:
- Double-moulded cups improve shape and 360 degree comfort for a seam free look under clothing
- Inner sling adds support for larger busts and the leotard-back wings provide all-round ribcage firmness
Top Tips for Buying a Bra Online
We also spoke with Nudea Founder and CEO, Priya Downes, for her top tips on navigating the minefield that is online bra shopping!
- First, make sure you look at what sizing tools you have to support an online purchase. Nudea has been leading the way by providing tools for self-measurement at home, all geared to ensure the best fit every time. Nudea’s Fit Tape and Online Fit Finder have been designed for simple, accurate self-measurement at home eliminating the need to visit a physical store. What’s more, Nudea’s newly launched, free Virtual Fitting Sessions, with the bra fit expert team, help to find the right fit and recommend styles to suit different bust shapes and body heights as well as being able to address any concerns.
- Make sure there’s hassle free delivery and returns, self-measurement is just one step in finding your fit so it makes sense to ensure returning items is as easy as possible.
When you finally get your bra, make sure you try adjusting the straps and jiggling your boobs. Nudea provides all customers with instructions on how to wear and adjust bras that come with added features such as cross back and halter neck options. For the jiggle, as you’re putting the bra on, lean forward and ‘jiggle’ your boobs into the cups to get the best fit. This can be a real game changer for some who’ve been wearing ill-fitting bras for years.
If you’re still struggling to find your fit, speak to the brand. Nudea offers Virtual Fittings with the in-house team of bra fit experts to all customers to not only find your size but to check fit once you try on as part of the brand’s aftercare service.
