While you're in no way required to don shapewear on your wedding day, shaping undergarments can help you look and feel your best as you walk down the aisle.
Bridal underpinnings, such as waist cinchers and bodysuits, can offer support and comfort in while remaining virtually invisible to the eyes of your guests and your spouse-to-be.
Depending on your style of wedding dress, you may require shapewear with a thigh-high slit, plunging neckline, or all-over compression. Additionally, to guarantee your shapewear remains undetectable, it's important to shop from a brand that can match your body shape and skin tone.
To help you check off at least one thing from your wedding to-do list, we've rounded up 25 wedding dress-friendly shapewear pieces, starting at just $24.
From slips to shaping underwear, waist cinchers to thigh shapers, and ultra-flattering bodysuits, scroll down to shop the best shapewear pieces for brides in 2021.
