How to create the perfect Bridal Trousseau

Dear Brides to be  💕

Struggling with your bridal trousseau? 
Let Tallulah help you!

We know weddings, big or small, are a lot of work.
Found the perfect venue? The perfect flowers? Most of all the perfect dress?
Then you need the perfect lingerie!

Think of it as the foundations. 
Trust us, you don't want to get the wrong foundations for your perfect dress. It's a common mistake to skip the practical underwear and go straight to the honeymoon lingerie.

Not to worry, we've got you covered for both!

Here at Tallulah's we love Bridal fitting and will make sure this day is a treat!
You can also book an appointment to make sure you have our full attention. We recommend coming in at least 6 weeks before the big day so we are able to order things in for you.
Don't forget to bring a picture of the dress and even a swatch of fabric if you have it.

Now let's talk about the essentials.

First things first, the dress!

Is it A-line, mermaid cut, sleeves, no sleeves, halter, sweetheart neckline?
Once we know the shape of your dress and the material, we will find you the perfect solutions for seamless lingerie. If you need a bit of structure, the Dominique basques are a delight.
They come in different lengths depending on the waistline of your dress. Smooth or with lace, and all low back. We also make alterations, so it's perfectly tailored to your needs!
Strapless bras are also a very good option for empress lines or bustier.
This set here from Ivette is a top seller with it's delicate lace appliqué and body contouring knickers.
(suspenders come off on all styles by the way!)


Then comes the knickers. You will be able to chose from a wide selection of brands for seamless, smooth underwear to the more body contouring options. They come in all shapes and styles. 


If you are taking pictures before the big event, you will want a pretty silk slip and delicate robe to get ready in. Nothing prettier than a blush or ivory negligee paired with a lace robe and boudoir mules!

For something new and old, get your pick from one of our vintage lace garters. 
We hand make them and can add a charm of your choosing. 

And now, the Honeymoon lingerie, where all the fun is!
Choose from our wide selection of lush silks and lace items to create a look to remember.
We can also help you select your signature scent with hand bottled perfumes from France.


Ivory is always a beautiful choice for your honeymoon lingerie.
And if you don't own one of our pearl thongs already, now is the perfect occasion!
Ivory silk and pearls is always a good idea, trust us.

If you prefer a bit of colour, add a splash of pink and aqua to your trousseau with this jaw dropping silk slip from Marjolaine's 2018 summer collection. 
Pair it with this cheeky ouvert satin set from Loveday London for maximum effect!


Pop by the Boudoir for inspiration, plenty more in stock!

Lot's of lingerie love.
