Different Types of Bridal Robes
Now that you’ve decided bridal robes are a must-have for your wedding morning, it’s now time to decide on a style that works for you… a few things to consider are where you’re getting married, any themes you might be trying to incorporating into your wedding, and also your own individual style & body type. But ultimately, the best bridal robes are the ones that make you feel like you!
If you’re getting married in a warmer climate we’d definitely recommend a lighter style robe in a natural fabric to ensure breathability and comfort. So, a linen bridal robe would definitely be your go to.
If you’re getting married somewhere cooler or are just obsessed with jersey (like us) then you can NOT go past our oh-so soft jersey bridal robes. We use a premium jersey that holds it shape beautifully and flatters all body types.
And, if you have a theme for your big day, for instance, ‘European Spring’ our satin bridal robes are your go to! Available in both block colours or gorgeous floral patterns designed exclusively by us, allowing you to express your individual style!
Also, all of our bridal robes feature an adjustable tie waist so they flatter all body types!
What to Wear Under a Bridal Robe
You now might be asking yourself… what to wear under a bridal robe? Well, our linen, jersey and satin robes are all cut from premium fabrics to ensure they aren’t overly transparent, but we still think it’s important to feel as supported as possible on your big day… so, once you’ve chosen the perfect robes for you, you’ll also want to make sure you have the right undergarments too. We’d recommend investing in a few key pieces:
Firstly, a strapless bra.. This will have you feeling supported all day long without stressing about bra straps showing up in photos. Trust us, on your big day you do not want to be stressing about the smallest of things.
Next, we’d recommend shapewear. Shapewear lifts and tucks in all the right places and supports your posture so you’ll feel confident and sexy, which is so important on your big day.
And if shapewear isn’t really your thing, then we’d recommend investing in some seamless underwear so you can still feel comfortable and ensure that no pesky seams show through in your photos.
How to Style Your Bridal Robe
Now that you’ve chosen your robes and invested in some high-quality undergarments, it’s time to have some fun and show your personality!
If you’re opting for a chic, classy look we recommend pairing your robe with fine minimalist jewellery, or if you’re a total boho babe, then a flower crown is a must!
Another way of styling your robe is to think about what footwear you and your besties should wear! For instance, if you’re going full glam you might like to throw on your stilettos with your robe. Or if you’re morning is all about chill vibes… grab a pair of our ridiculously comfy slippers so you can sit back and relax.
One way of ensuring you have a cohesive look in your pre-wedding photos is to style your robes to your bridesmaids, either by choosing a lace bridal robe that pairs gorgeously with your bridesmaids robes,, or by wearing the same robe as your besties but in a different colour. It’s a little bit like when Kate Middleton was confident enough to have Pippa wear white on her wedding day and we’re very here for it..
