One of the more important days in a woman's life is her wedding day. It is something that is anticipated for years and a lot of planning goes into making the day as perfect as possible. Included in the planning process is certain to be the bridal gown. You are going to be the focus of attention on that special day, but it is not only what people see that needs to be considered, it’s what they don't see as well. That is why it is important for you to choose the proper bra to go under your wedding dress. Here are a few tips that can help to guide you.

Comfort - One of the most important things to consider for your wedding day bra is comfort. Consider the fact that you are going to be in the dress and the bra for quite some time and it is likely to be somewhat of a stressful situation. The last thing that you would want is for the discomfort of a bra to draw any unnecessary attention. If you are comfortable in your bra, it will go a long way in helping to make the day a joyful one.

Functional - During the wedding day, you are going to be on your feet and in front of the camera. Although there is nothing wrong with having a feminine, sexy bra, but you should still make sure it is going to be a functional part of your wardrobe.

Fit - If you have never had a proper fitting, it is important to do so before the wedding day. Most women tend to wear the wrong size bra and although it may be close, it probably misses the mark. If you find that your bra is constantly cutting into your sides or if the straps are either too tight or too loose, it is time for you to go in for a fitting. They will also be able to give you some guidance as to the style of bra that is going to be best for your wedding gown.

Color - There is no inappropriate color for your wedding day. At one time, the traditional color of white was the only choice that was available, but today there is no problem with coloring outside the lines. Just make sure that the color of your bra complements the color of your dress. Remember though, if you have a bra of a contrasting color, it is going to take away from the beauty of the dress that you are wearing.

If you keep these tips in mind, you will find that you have a much better day as a result. In most cases, nobody is going to notice the bra that you are wearing other than you. It is an important part of your wardrobe, however, and one that is going to make a difference in your comfort and in the way that you look. Be sure that you give it the attention that it deserves.
