What underwear should I wear under my dress?

What underwear should I wear under my dress?

A lot of you ask us the same questions at your appointments, what underwear can I wear with this style dress? Do I have to go braless? Big knickers or little knickers? The truth is, our dresses are designed to be worn with all sorts of underwear so we decided to stock some of our favourite's to match each of our styles.

Style: Brooklyn 

The Brooklyn seems to get the most underwear questions. "I want to wear a bra but its a low back, what do I do?!" Well, we have a few solutions for you. 

Nipple covers

Nipple covers are perfect if you're comfortable not wearing a bra, but just want a little something to cover you up. We recommend both silicone nipple covers which are reusable, and the fabric petal covers which are great for one wear.

Option 1: 

Silicone Nipple Covers

These really affordable beauties give a sleek look under the Brooklyn style dress, both in the crepe styles and satins!

Option 2: 

Fabric Nipple Covers

These fabric nipple covers are slightly thinner than the silicone covers which might be better suited for you. These covers aren't reusable but come with 3 in a pack.

Low Back Converters

If you would prefer to wear a bra with your Brooklyn, then a low back converter will be your best friend. Pop it on to any strapless bra and pull it down a little bit more at the back than in the image here, and you should be able to hide the strap in the back V of the dress, or just under the waist sash. If you are worried about it showing during the big day you can even loosely stitch the back of the bra to the dress using a tack stitch. Just remember it's there when you are taking your dress off at the end of the day!

Seam free

These seam free thongs are perfect to be worn under the Brooklyn for a slick look. If you prefer to wear a bigger knicker, we also have a Brazilian style fit. These both come in nude which means they will work well under any colour dress!

Styles: Mykonos, Ibiza & Berlin

Spaghetti strap styles like the Mykonos and Ibiza look their best when wearing a strapless bra. You don't have to worry about trying to hide the straps, or not having enough support with a strapless bra, because we have found some perfect options for you! 


Marks & Spencers is home to the SOFTEST strapless bra you will ever find. We always recommend this in our appointments and we know a lot of you love what M&S offer because they are so soft and slick, and leave no seam lines or lumps and bumps under your dress. This bra is also perfect worn with the Berlin dress, even if you keep the straps on like a normal bra, it will just give you a really soft seam free finish.
