I wrote an article about lingerie to go under wedding dresses a few weeks back, so today I thought I’d cover the next stage – honeymoon lingerie! While all white or beige lingerie is naturally appropriate under your wedding dress, honeymoon lingerie gives you lots more room to get creative. Today’s column includes pieces that are traditional and pieces that are more out of the box. Some of these are bra sets, but others are fun additions that add an extra layer of luxury to your getaway. All of them will highlight your curves and make you feel great. In addition all of these pieces can be worn after your honeymoon, giving you more value for your hard earned money. As usual, just click on the images to get to the product information!
Sunday Intimates is the newest full bust brand on the block and one of the few full bust brands taking on the luxury market. Band sizes range from 28-34 and cup sizes range from D through H. While these three pieces are technically sold separately, I think they make a great honeymoon set when put together. I love this antique/tea rose shade of pink, although I wish they hadn’t used the controversial term of “Sunday Nude” when naming things. It’s perfectly bridal without being too literal, but would also be a great set of pajamas for spring and summer once you’re back home. I know that everyone has a different preference for how much support they like at night, but I love that you can match the bra to the pajamas if you like a little more support while sleeping or chilling out in a tropical paradise.
This Maria Babydoll is part of the new occasion line by Elomi and is just gorgeous. If you’re a full busted bride who loves the traditional look, this is a flattering and beautiful piece. I’m really hoping that Elomi takes this shape and releases it in colors for another season – it’s flattering on lots of different body types and is useful enough to be worn as a slip underneath your favorite dress.
Plum Pretty Sugar makes amazing cotton robes and loungewear that look far more expensive than they really are. At $65.00, this robe is a steal. I have a pair of their pajama pants that has been washed and worn for over two years with very little wear and tear, so their stuff clearly holds up over time as well. If you like to mix and match, they also offer pants, tunics and even slippers that match their robe patterns. This Mist Upon Golden Swirls pattern is an elegant and fashion forward take on the traditional bridal robe.
Light blue is a great bridal alternative to white and this Tutti Rouge bra is the perfect spring blue set. This powder blue half cup Liliana bra will provide great support and style throughout your honeymoon, but can be used as a beautiful everyday set once you get back home. This set is perfect for brides on a budget, as the whole thing only costs $66. This bra comes in band sizes 28 though 42 and cup sizes D through J.
She and Reverie has released a collection of luxury loungewear that doubles as resortwear this season, which makes it the perfect pick if you’re looking for something truly special and really useful for your honeymoon. The silk lined ponte knit hoodie would be great for both the beach and a long plane flight, while the Holiday Skirt is sweet and easy to pack. The full skirt enhances curves while the ponte knit conforms to them without making your waist look baggy – they’re a great combination.
This Mimi Holliday set is a lovely blend of silk and lace. The shoulder bra design makes it perfect for a wide variety of necklines and the briefs are high waisted without feeling frumpy. While this set is clearly aimed at brides, it could definitely be worn after the wedding all summer long.
This robe is fantastic for curvy women – I own one in black that I just adore. I love the light blue color as well as the heart shaped cutout. The sleeves are huge and the tie is long enough to wrap around several times, which helps anchor everything and highlight your waist. If you haven’t yet tried La Lilouche, this is a great piece to start with.
Which of these would you pick to take on your honeymoon? Did I miss any of your favorites? Let me know in the comments!
