Where Can I Find A Foundation Garment That's Also Sexy Wedding Lingerie?

Q:Hey APW!

I’m in the process of designing my wedding dress with someone I’m super excited to work with. Since we’re designing the top from scratch, I figured we could benefit from figuring out the lingerie early so I know I have the right piece to go underneath the dress. Could you provide some suggestions on where to get wedding lingerie? Something practical, of course. Pretty, but practical. Especially for someone with a non-traditional “nude” skin tone and tiny breasts, picking out wedding lingerie is fraught. I was surprised how comfortable the shape-wear provided by David’s Bridal at my just-for-fun-right-after-engagement appointment was, but I want to feel not just comfortable, but appealing when my new husband (gasp) peels off my dress at the end of the night. I’ll have a one-shoulder dress so that’s its own problem. I’ve heard strapless longline bras are great, but even apart from my particular needs, is there a good spot or two online (or advice for going shopping in person locally, whether at a chain or small place) that does a particularly good job of walking the line between affordable (that can mean so many things, but how about just not nearly equivalent to the price of the dress), comfortable, pretty, and shape-friendly?

Extra credit: Colors beyond white, black, and white-person nude would be totally rad. I’m wearing a red and gold dress so it would be fun to wear a classy red corset or an actually nude longline. Maybe even blue for the something blue?

Thank you!

OKAY APW, this is a fun one! We’re experts at PRACTICAL YET SEXY right? What did you wear under your wedding dress? Did you find any skivvies that are both pretty to look at and comfortable to hang out in all day? Did you wear anything you definitely don’t recommend?
