We wouldn’t blame you for wanting to wear cute, lacy underwear (something perhaps with a little blue bow?) on your big day. But let’s face it, while that kind of underpinning is sexy and sweet, it’s never really practical when it comes to staying incognito under your clothes. And really, what could be worse than a bride with a visible panty line?
A seamless thong might seem like the next best option, but when has a thong ever been considered comfortable? But you’re up at the altar, you definitely don’t want to have to worry about wedgies or unsightly seams. For those who want nothing less than perfection when it comes to their panty line, we suggest you go Commando—and no, we don’t mean forgoing underwear à la Paris Hilton in the early aughts. We mean choosing Commando, the brand of undetectable underwear loved by celebrities and fashion stylists.
Vogue Market Editor Anny Choi swears by them. “No matter if you’re just starting out or have been in the industry for 10 years, Commandos are the one thing you will find in any fashion person’s kit,” she says. “I wear them underneath the most naked slip dresses, the sheerest white pants, and there is never a visible panty line. No nothing!” They’re conveniently available in a variety of shapes and silhouettes, including high-waisted, briefs, thongs, and girl shorts.
With more and more brides choosing form-fitting gowns, slip dresses, and even the occasional sheer, embellished design, nailing the right undergarment is of the utmost importance. So take our advice, leave the sexy underwear for the honeymoon, and go with these elastic-free, seamless undies instead. You can thank us later.
