What underwear should I wear with my bridesmaids dress?

Skims shapewear underwear for bridesmaids dresses

Finding the right underwear to wear under your bridesmaid or bridal dress can sometimes be a difficult task. The main thing you want to make sure is that no seams or straps are showing - which can be tricky if you're wearing a dress with thin straps or a low back. We get asked a lot what underwear we recommend to wear with Rewritten dresses so we've brought to you our favourites.

The Brooklyn dress gets the most underwear questions - "I want to wear a bra but it has a low back, what do I do?!" Well, here are a few solutions -

Nipple covers

Nipple covers are perfect if you're comfortable not wearing a bra. We recommend both silicone nipple covers which are reusable, and the fabric petal covers which are great for one wear.

Silicone Nipple Covers

These really affordable silicone nipple covers give a skin feel and smooth finish under the Brooklyn dress.

Fabric Nipple Covers

These fabric nipple covers are slightly thinner than the silicone covers. These covers aren't reusable but come in a 3 pack.

Stick On Bra

Stick on bras have recently become more available in different styles which are much more supportive than the traditional cup stick on bras. One of our favourites is the U-plunge stick on bra from M&S. Backless with a U front shape means this bra will be completely hidden under your Brooklyn dress.

Low Back Bra Converters

If you would prefer to wear a regular bra with your Brooklyn, then a low back converter will be your best friend. Attach it to any strapless bra and the low back converter will pull the strap down enough so it's not seen. 

Marks & Spencer is home to the SOFTEST strapless bra you will ever find - they leave no seam lines or lumps and bumps under your dress. A strapless bra is also perfect when worn with the Mykonos or Pollenca dresses so your straps don't show under the spaghetti strap.

Looking for options for a bigger bust?

Curvy Kate offer lots of different styles and go up to a J cup which is perfect for a bigger bust. Multiway and strapless options are great under all of our styles, but for ultimate support, our favourite is the Luxe Strapless Bra. As they say "the strapless one that actually stays up!"

Our Roma dress has a slight racer style back meaning you can wear a regular bra with straps, but you will need to pull the straps in so they don't show. You can do this with our bra clips. They are super easy to use and pinch in your bra straps so they are hidden under the racer back on the dress. 


Shapewear is great under any style dress and there are many different styles to choose from. You can find different varieties of shapewear in most high street stores such as; John Lewis, M&S, ASOS or lingerie shops like Bravissimo. One of our favourite brands for shapewear is Skims. Skims offer different styles of body suits, thongs/briefs/shorts and bra solutions. The fabric is super sculpting and seam free so it doesn't show under our styles. 

If you are going for a bra and knickers underwear solution, and are looking for seam free knickers, you can buy our favourite seam free thong or seam free knickers here.
