When in doubt, blend with your skin tone. What's the best bridal hosiery? Thigh highs are a great option for ball gowns, A-lines and other full skirts. Thigh-highs with silicone gripper bands will stay up without garters. For mermaid style gowns or other close- fitting dresses, pantyhose are probably in order.

Bring the lingerie you plan to wear to your gown fitting. Shapewear, bras and bustiers can really change the way a gown hangs on you, so get it fitted with the right underwear. Pay attention to color. There are so many shades of white that you might be better with an ivory or even natural color bra. And did we mention, bring it with you to your fitting? Buy an extra pair of whatever stockings or hosiery you're planning to wear. You know hosiery always snags or runs just when it matters most.

The will give you a chance to get used to what it feels like and to see if it's going to present any problems. If you'll be dressing at a venue away from home, use a small separate bag to pack your lingerie-- and it wouldn't hurt to have a checklist.

Uh oh-what if 1 have know..pee? Well, you could reenact the scene from 27 Dresses. But seriously, this question gets a lot of attention in wedding forums and sites. For those who just don't worry about these things consider a thong and pull it aside to pee. But the real concern is the gown, isn't it? The best advice we've seen is this: Remove panties Step forward into the stall (preferably a large stall, like the handicapped stall) Lift the front of your dress to your waist and just straddle the seat. On the other hand, you could enlist the help of your bridesmaids or maid of honor. If nothing else, it will make a great story later on. FR HerRoom Lingerie We Buy For Ourselves.. and More
