What do you wear under a white dress?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

When it comes to wearing a white dress, it’s important to choose the right undergarments to ensure a seamless and flattering look. Personally, I find that wearing nude or blush-colored lingerie underneath white clothes works best. These shades blend in with my skin tone and help to minimize any visible lines or shadows that may show through the fabric.

For underwear, I opt for seamless styles in nude or blush colors. This helps to prevent any panty lines from showing through the dress. I tend to avoid wearing white underwear as it can sometimes be more visible under white clothing.

In addition to underwear, light shapewear can also be a great option for wearing under a white dress. It helps to smooth out any lumps or bumps and gives a more streamlined silhouette. I recommend choosing shapewear in a nude or flesh-tone color to ensure it remains invisible under the dress.

Microfiber fabrics are another excellent choice for undergarments when wearing white clothes. They are lightweight, smooth, and often seamless, making them virtually undetectable under white fabric. I find that they provide a comfortable and secure fit without adding any bulk.

If the dress has a low-cut or backless design, a silicone bra in a flesh color can be a lifesaver. These bras adhere to the skin and provide support without any visible straps or closures. They are great for maintaining a natural look while still giving you the desired shape and lift.

To further ensure a seamless look, I sometimes opt for a white or nude slip underneath the dress. This helps to prevent the dress from clinging to my skin and provides an extra layer of coverage. It can also help with any potential transparency issues, especially if the fabric is on the thinner side.

The key is to choose undergarments that match your skin tone or the color of the dress to create a seamless and invisible foundation. Experimenting with different styles and fabrics can help you find the best option that works for you and your white dress.
