While bridal lingerie – as well as bridal pajamas and dressing gown – is often low on a bride-to-be’s to-do list, it’s not to be overlooked. Women have a relationship of complicity with intimate lingerie as it reflects their inner self, delicate femininity, self-esteem, charm and sensuality.
Even if functional and not-so-sexy nude bridal lingerie is often worn with a wedding dress, it’s a good idea to have a selection of panties, shapewear, silicone cups and double-sided adhesive tape. From your wedding night to your honeymoon and beyond, you want to dare and surprise.
Whether you prefer traditional white or soft pastel shades, whether you want a classic and elegant look, fun and girly, sensual and daring, or simply unusual, we have rounded up the best international bridal lingerie brands for you.

Fleur Du Mal
Loved by fashionable women all around the world, New York-based brand Fleur Du Mal takes its name from a famous collection of poems by Baudelaire. Founder Jennifer Zuccarini dresses women ‘from the inside’ out. Sensual designs, cheerful patterns and bright colors make women feel special, confident and enthusiastic. The ample bridal collection includes her iconic sets embroidered with beautiful white lilies.

For Love & Lemons
With a loyal Instagram following, For Love & Lemons creates young and lighthearted collections, featuring Lolita-style prints, flirtatious details, floral motifs and quirky vintage touches for women who don’t take themselves too seriously. Cascades of white lace, broderie anglaise corsets, and suspenders are a great choice for the wedding night, while embroidered outfits in pastel tones are perfect for a romantic honeymoon.
With a French name that evokes a house with a ‘bad reputation’ and a sumptuous and niche image that’s a tad controversial and provocative, Bordelle subverts gender roles, offering instantly recognizable luxurious bondage and S&M inspired lingerie for dominant women. Intricate, ambitiously structured pieces made with satin and elastic straps and a selection of 24-carat gold-plated accessories are more of a luxury than everyday pieces.
