Brava's Top Tips

The Dressmaker

The dressmaker - Your dressmaker will ensure the gown is the right size, colour and design for you. A good dressmaker will insist you get the bra before the dress is made and that you must wear the bra for each fitting. It saves a lot of heartache.  At the first fitting she will check the way the material falls around the waist, how the bust area fits, whether there is any puckering, bunching or bulging. Look in the three-way mirrors to view all angles. 

Get Fitted

The bra must fit properly and be both comfortable and supportive. The cup must fit well without spillage. If the cup is too big, it will wrinkle under the dress, too small and you will see bulging. If the back strap is too loose it will rise up the back, however straps too tight will dig in and cause unsightly ridges.

The Smooth Effect

The Smooth Effect - The right bra or basque is integral to how the dress will sit. If the dress material is silky, you will need a bra or basque that has seamfree cups with smooth fabric - possibly satin and lacefree. Shapewearis a must have for some dresses.


Whats it going to be? Sexy or Smooth? If youre choosing sexy, lacy lingerie nsure the fabric of your wedding dress is thick enough to cover up any lumps and bumps. Consider a smooth bra with a quick change into your honeymoon set later.
