FABRICS - COLOUR IS KEY
Satins are the most common fabric selected for use under bridal wear, avoiding decorative lace trims and/or ruffles. While they add elegance and are fanciful, such trimmings are usually bulky and create a lumpy, un-smooth appearance. Lighter brocades can be used, keeping in mind this is a heavier fabric, adding slight bulk to the corset. Additionally, patterned material may be visible, if the gown is not comprised of a heavy fabric or lining.
Rule of thumb: White is visible through White and darker colors should be selected, unless the gown is a heavy fabric, or heavily lined. Champagne, Cashmere, Beige, Nude and even Black satin's are suitable colours. White on White brocades and Coutil's are commonly used as outer or under wear. However, it may be difficult to find off White or Ivory brocades and Coutils
