My dress doesn't call for much in the department of underthings. A simple pair of undies and that's about it. Even if it did, most supportive undergarments aren't the most desirable in the bedroom anyway.
A quick scan of Nordstrom's lingerie department led my eye to one particular rack: Elle Macpherson Intimates. Sure, they aren't full get-ups. They're bras and undies adorned with lace, see-through mesh, and all things girly and frilly. To put it more simply, they're plain old pretty.
Unfortunately, they didn't have my size in the one matching set I liked, but I once I got home, my internet search revealed so much more than what the store contained. First of all, these aren't as pricey as, say, Agent Provocateur. And, not that I need it, but these come in sizes up to E for girls with what Bruschetta would call Beefsteak-size ladies. Check out these adorable sets:
Infatuation Contour Bra ($80)
Macpherson also has a boudoir line that's even more frilly and beautiful than her regular bras and undies:
Boudoir Contour Bra (On sale from $130 to $39)
Boudoir Lace Thong (On sale from $55 to $16.50)
Dentelle Underwire Bra and Thong ($65 for bra)
Go to her website and you'll really see how gorgeous the detailing on these pieces is including pearls, lace, and ruffles.
What did I order? Her Artistry set in Jet Black. (Good thing Mr. CB never checks Weddingbee).
Artistry Jet Contour Bra and Culottes ($100 for the set)
Did you buy lingerie for the "after party"? Any suggestions?
