2019 Bridal Trends from Fantasy Lingerie
Summer always marks the beginning of wedding season! No one knows this better than lingerie market leaders like California’s Fantasy Lingerie. While every bridal collection is special, this year it’s a personal celebration for the Fantasy Lingerie team as their ultra-adorable head of inventory control, Lianna Casten is a bride-to-be! We talk with this industry expert about the bridal market as a whole and the new exciting things from Fantasy Lingerie that she’ll be adding to her wedding trousseau.
“Wear what you want to wear on your wedding night and honeymoon, because you want to wear it,” —Lianna Casten
News alert: white isn’t just for brides! “We like to keep our bridal-focused pieces part of the main collection because not everyone associates white with ‘bridal’,” says Lianna. “I believe that my outspoken generation would say that you could literally wear any color you want on your wedding day, whether it’s the lingerie you put on that night, or even your wedding dress itself!”
Another fashion trend that has made its market on Fantasy Lingerie’s new collection is the idea of lingerie being worn as ready to wear. “Mainstream lingerie has become more wearable and not limited to the bedroom,” says Lianna. “The trends in mainstream fashion include versatility, for example, our Annie-bed jacket (style FL1903) can be used not only as a robe but also as a swim cover-up or layering piece.”
What sets Fantasy Lingerie apart from the crowd is their focus on size inclusivity, as most of these nuptial-inspired styles are offered in SM – 3X. Fantasy Lingerie who has always been a champion of designing lingerie for all body types. “There is something to choose from for every body,” says Lianna.
No matter what your size, Lianna believes this trend of lingerie as outerwear may be generational. “I like to get the most out of what I purchase and I would say that’s a pretty common purchasing mentality amongst millennials,” she adds. “I have many Fantasy Lingerie pieces that I’ve worn in the bedroom, to the club, on a date, etc.”
Best for Buyers
Looking for a safe bet for your bridal customer? Lianna recommends the Elsie Embroidered Halter Cami and Panty (FL1601), Jennifer Halter Top and Panty (FL1902), the Annie Bed Jacket and Panty (FL1903), Neely Romper (FL1904), and Isla Babydoll and Panty Set (B408/P408).
“Though not the traditional white silhouette, I also find the Norah from our Tease collection Tie Front Top and Tap Pant (B415) to be a style I myself would consider wearing on our wedding night,” she adds.
The Fantasy’s Tease/Curve styles (B408/P408 + B415/P415) are offered in split sizing, S/M through 3X/4X.
Wear What Makes You Happy
Finding your bridal lingerie for your wedding night or honeymoon lingerie for your first days as a married woman can be daunting but it is definitely worth investing in and finding something you love. Ever the romantic, Lianna explains, “Your body is a sanctuary, the most precious one you’ll ever own. Wear what you want to wear on your wedding night and honeymoon, because you want to wear it, because you feel comfortable and sexy in it, because it makes you happy. Don’t forget to love your body, because that to me is the ultimate ‘look’ you could ever put on! Lingerie is made to simply enhance the beauty that you already possess. Of course, you can keep in mind what the person you’re marrying likes to see you wearing – but at this point, you probably love the lingerie you choose because that person makes you feel special when you’re wearing it!”
