Dallas Wedding Alterations

At Altered for the Altar, we are so excited to be able to altar your dream wedding dress! As the premier choice of Dallas wedding alterations, we have lots of tips for brides-to-be. One of the most important, and often not thought about is how important your undergarments are for your big day. Depending on the type of dress, certain choices might be necessary and others might be more comfortable. We are here to help you navigate through choosing the perfect undergarments.

  • First, make sure that you are choosing the right bra for your gown. If you have a strapless dress, you may consider wearing a strapless bra, a corset, or one of the many other options we can customize for you instead of a bra.
  • For panties, wear a pair that is “no-show.” You should especially wear nude, no-show underwear if your dress is more form fitting and would reveal panty lines. In addition to the color, in many cases, panties serve as Shapewear, helping your dress fit right and your body look the way you want it to. In many cases, our brides will come in feeling frustrated after purchasing uncomfortable (expensive) items online that aren’t the right fit for their body or dress. We always suggest coming to your first fitting, and discussing the best option before making any purchases. We carry a large selection of undergarments, made specifically for bridal wear, and can help you find the best fit for your dress and body.
  • Lastly, make sure that you are comfortable! You will be standing, walking, and dancing all day, so be sure that no matter what undergarments you choose,  you are comfortable in them and everything fits how it should. You don’t want to wear anything too loose or too tight, causing tugging or unflattering fits in your photos.

We carry a large selection of ready-to-wear intimates, as well as custom stitched luxurious undergarments that will help you feel and look your best for the big day.
