Survive the Wedding Season with Our Plus-Size Undergarments

Being plus-sized doesn’t mean you can’t have a great wedding day

We’re letting you in on the secrets to wedding fashion and beauty so you can put your best foot forward.

  1. Get your frock collection sorted. Whether you’re shopping the closet or buying new pieces, one of the first things to sort out when you get the invitation is your outfit. We all know how stressful it can be trying to find the perfect dress when you’re cutting it close!

  1. The perfect base layer. Once you’ve chosen your outfit, plan your underwear. Your undergarments and shapewear can make or break your dress; you don’t want any VPLs or lumps and bumps – and you definitely don’t want to feel restricted on the dancefloor! One sure-fire piece that works with every outfit are our plus-size shapewear shorts. And before you say shapewear isn’t for you, this new evolution of shapewear is so comfortable, you’ll forget you have them on! Depending on your dress, a singlet slip is also an excellent choice, or you could pair one of our bodysuits with a glamorous skirt and fabulous heels for a day-to-night look.

  1. Amp up the skincare. You don’t need to have a facial every month but taking good care of your skin in the lead up to the big day can help undo any wrongdoings of time gone by. Drink plenty of water (try the good old lemon in water trick), be diligent about sunscreen and make sure you take off your makeup each night! Also invest in a good at-home mask and exfoliator that you can use the night before. (Just be sure you have tried it before so you don’t break out or have a reaction.)

  1. Don’t forget your body. Body brush each morning and exfoliate once a week to get rid of those dead skin cells and keep you feeling fresh. While the weather is heating up, don’t forgo moisturiser! A lightweight moisturising cream or oil leaves your limbs feeling smooth and supple with a gorgeous glow.

  1. Book in your beauty appointments. Beauty appointments can be hard to squeeze in, so be sure to book them in advance – whether it’s a haircut, eyebrow or body wax, or mani/pedi.

  1. Stay comfortable. Comfy heels so you can dance all night long are the way to go. Choose a height that works for you, and if you are attending multiple weddings, go for a heel that can make an appearance on more than one occasion. Wedges are a great option for garden weddings. Plus-size undergarments, such as our anti-chafing shorts, shapewear and bras will ensure your whole body survives the night unscathed.

  1. On the day. Keep hydrated with plenty of water (especially if it is an outdoor wedding). It will help keep you sensible (within reason!) and is also the best thing to ward off the harsher side effects of a night filled with bubbly and wine.

With our shapewear as your secret weapon, we have no doubt you’ll feel fabulous and confident, so strut your stuff and party the day and night away!
