Bridal lingerie is the jewel in the crown of any blushing bride. The piece de resistance, icing on the cake. Choosing the right wedding underwear (and indeed the lingerie that will accompany you on your blissful honeymoon) is just as important as choosing the right wedding dress. Except its the garments that will only be seen by your groom so it’s an extra special, private treat.
At Fox & Rose we’ve scoured the most wonderful designer lingerie brands in the world with an eye on those show stopping pieces that are guaranteed to excite passions, perfectly fitting for the occasion as well as being absolutely beautiful (and not to mention worthy of being worn after the wedding is over). Without further ado, here’s our top five bridal lingerie picks for 2012:
The Seduce Me Gownin ivory by Shell Belle Couture is quite simple stunning. The floor sweeping spot tulle offers a vintage look with modern styling and is a dramatic, couture sleepwear gown perfect for brides, honeymooners or just anybody who likes to retire to bed elegantly attired.
Crafted from a vintage spot tulle with exquisite appliqued leavers lace detailing this luxurious piece will transport you to the bygone era of the 1930’s.
The Snowflake Bride Playsuit by Ell & Cee
A bestseller for the last 2 years at Fox & Rose, this ivory playsuit is soft, ethereal and floaty, ideal for post wedding lounging. The heavenly silk chiffon fabric wafts seductively over the body giving a supremely feminine, yet sexy silhouette. We love the plunging neckline, which is supremely flattering on all body types.
A glorious bridal look that will send pulses racing and complement any themed wedding!
The Goddess Jewel Encrusted Maxi by Ell & Cee is a spectacular creation that is perfect for an ultra glamorous resort look. Crafted from an exquisite silk chiffon, this floaty maxi has a detachable pearl encrusted neckpiece that attaches to it creating a complete look that is both ethereal and ultra fashionable.
The high side splits lend it a supremely sensuous feel. This garment will take you from pre wedding lounging, through to wedding night/breakfast the morning after and right through to poolside glamour with a bridal twist. We LOVE this maxi dress!
Jenny Packham’s Silk Chiffon Robe is quite simply made for a princess.
Trimmed in luxurious silk-satin, this diaphanous silk-chiffon robe from the iconic british designer Jenny Packham is an elegant and inspired choice. Tie the sash in a bow over the matching chemise to create a truly exquisite look.
Not only will this robe see you elegantly clad in the bedroom, but it’s perfect attire for covering up in the most stylish way for photography pre-ceremony.
Elle Macpherson’s Obsidian range is the high end version of her spectacular lingerie collection. And there are some real gems in there for brides – from bra and brief sets, to silk playsuits and lace gowns, you’re guaranteed to find something you adore from her collection. We’ve picked out the Maria Lace Robe as it’s fashion forward yet vintage and a perfect coverup that will also become a treasured favourite at home post wedding.
Crafted from a fine French Leaver’s lace with scalloped hemline, silk tie sash that nips in the waist and finished with a seductive hood detail at the back. Perfect for brides in search of that special piece for their wedding night or honeymoon.
