Bust a Move

Super Bras and Swimsuits by Panache

A good bra is hard to find. Especially if you’re larger than a C, built-in cups may not be enough for you to feel comfortable dancing around in your wedding gown.

Avoid a bridal wardrobe malfunction: To fit those blessed with a fuller bust, Panache recently launched its Evie Bridal collection for cup sizes D to H. Pretty, feminine ivory strapless and basque bras will keep you contained during the big day, but are delicate enough to show off afterward (goodbye, grandma bras!). And no more struggling with a flimsy triangle top on your honeymoon: Panache also introduced a genius line of adorable bikinis and tankinis available according to bra size.

Now that’s a good support system.


The New Romantic

Anthropologie Launches BHLDN Bridal Collection

Your wedding day is no time to be a demure wallflower. BHLDN plays up to the fashionably fearless with bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses that infuse color, daring silhouettes and inventive embellishments.

Inspired by the Dutch word “to keep,” BHLDN (pronounced beholden), offers all the romance, whimsy and subtle boho touches that Anthropologie is known for. Ranging from a flirty silk dupioni tea dress to a flowing pleated gown in a whisper grey, no two gowns are alike and feature unique details like crocheted lace bits, embroidered fronds and fluttering appliqued butterflies. Adding a modern touch, BHLDN infuses color into its bridal collection with rich palettes of buttercream, taupe and florals with hints of coral. Brides-to-be can shop BHLDN’s treasure trove of jewelry, hair accessories, lingerie, shoes and cover-ups. For guests or bridesmaids, the collection offers a variety of colorful frocks to fit any nuptial from black tie to beach. Currently, the collection is only available online.

Dare to be different.


Sweet Indulgence

Brulee’s Simple & Sexy Loungewear Collection

When it comes to personal style, you live by the philosophy that less is more–a mantra that fittingly applies to your honeymoon “sleepwear.” Jump start your first days (and nights) of matrimony with sexy but simple pieces from Brulee.

Designed by Kristian Giambi, the chic silk and jersey collection of boy shorts, body suits, tap pants and teddies artfully blends comfort and versatility for a practical yet playful look that is anything but sweet. Back in the honeymoon suite, slip into a slinky pair of silk boy shorts with a mesh back or a sheer paneled body suit with lattice trim and black crystal buttons. In the morning, have breakfast in bed in their classic boyfriend nightshirt.

Just make sure he saves room for dessert.


Shape Shifters

Cynthia Rowley’s Slim Shapewear Line

Your honeymoon calls for lots of wining and dining, making control top accoutrements a necessity. While your faithful shapewear smooths away the lumps and bumps, it’s too soon to sport the beige binding in front of the new hubby. New York designer Cynthia Rowley’s new Slim line melds lingerie and shapewear for a sleek collection of underthings that you won’t feel like hiding.

Keeping you slim and stylish, the modern collection of sexy separates and bodycon slips features color blocking, cut outs, geometric patterns and sheer panels. Steering clear of the skin-tone shades, the line comes in a pretty palette of eggshell blue/lilac/nude or black/violet/nude.

You’ll never have to suck in again.


Trousseau Religion

Honeymoon Lingerie from Zinke

Burn the baggy pajama pants. Honeymoons are meant to be sexy, and what better time to show off your sultry new identity than in a paradise for two.

The barely there summer lingerie collection from Zinke isn’t exactly made for public appearances, but you’ll never leave the hotel room, anyway. Get intimate with these intimates, designed by two fashion-loving sisters. A sheer chemise, a coquettish jumper or a slinky babydoll all announce the new Mrs. is a little minx. After the first sleepless night, he’ll beg you never to take them off – wait, of course he will.

Pretty, please.
