Say Something Boudoir Photoshoot

We are thrilled and honored to be sharing such an incredible shoot  by Marcie of Maler Photography. We are in love with  this music themed boudoir shoot featuring our lingerie! The lyrics of the song and our lingerie are a perfect fit and our gorgeous models look amazing.  This is a great idea for couples looking to do a photoshoot together with an intimate but classy feel. Come visit us to help style your boudoir shoot with sophisticated and exquisite lingerie pieces. We also offer on site styling.  

Here is what Marcie said as to how the idea came to be “One day, as I (Marcie) listened to these emotional lyrics on repeat, it hit me. I had several images in my head, of a couple, letting go…trying so hard to hold on. I needed to convey this. From there, I planned an intimate photo shoot, which final images I turned into a video to sync with the song. “Say Something.” ” We hope you all enjoy the video and images just as much as us!

Spring Clean Your Lingerie

The weather is starting to warm up and we are all anxiously awaiting Springs arrival by doing some cleaning. Out with the old in with the new! Chance are we have forgotten to clean out one very important drawer, our lingerie one. Undergarments are worn daily and usually for hours, and though we may not realize it, our undergarments can make or break an outfit. So we want to make sure that the condition and fit of our pieces are always up to par.  Its time to go through all our lingerie and decide which pieces are worthy of keeping and which ones need to be tossed. Here are a few tips on how to make this tough decision.

Say goodbye to your Bra if:

  • The band or straps are stretched out
  • The cup has lost its shape or looks dimpled
  • The wire is warped or protruding
  • The appearance of the bra seems faded or rough

Say goodbye to your panties if:

  • It has a hole, no matter how small
  • Any stains
  • Is too tight or loose
  • If the stitching on the elastic is missing

If your bras passed the condition test now its time to check to see if they fit properly. A proper fitting bra means that you are not spilling out of the cups and there is not gap. The correct band size means the band is snug but not tight or loose, a bra too big in the band will ride up your back. You can test this by raising your arms straight up and if the cup doesn’t move your bra passes the test, but if your breast is visible under the wire, I’m sorry but its time to say goodbye. If you find the testing overwhelming please make an appointment with one of our personal lingerie stylists  who will be more than happy to help you test your bras from home as well as helping you find some new pieces to incorporate into your lingerie wardrobe. The perfect fitting undergarments will make  your clothes look fabulous. 

Here are a few of our favorite organizing ideas:

lingerie storage

Properly caring for your bras will make them last longer

bra organizing

Placing bras in a row keeps the bras from loosing their shape and lets you have a full view of all your pieces

bra storage

We love how this lingerie storage has a space for every panty while still keeping all bras visible

show box organization

DIY Lingerie Organizer

Now that  you have chosen which pieces you will keep remember to care for them properly. In order for your molded bra cups to keep its shape, store them in a row with similar bras, folding the cups into each other will create dimples or creases.  Wash your pieces by hand to expand its life, if you decide to toss your lingerie in the washer we suggest you use the delicate cycle and a lingerie bag and then lay flat and let air dry. Same goes for panties.

All clients are treated to a complimentary professional bra fitting by our “Certified Fit” staff. You can set up an appointment by calling us (203)433-2023 or email us:

importance of bridal undergarments

Our motto is, “A Beautiful Gown Starts with the Perfect Foundation.” Your bridal undergarments determine a great fit so that you look incredible in your wedding gown on your big day. Just like a house needs a strong solid foundation, so does your gown. Here at Beneath The Gown we ensure that you have the proper fit for your gown, body type and/or personal style. We customize and tailor not only your bridal undergarments to your exact need, we also create a customized experience. We believe that building relationships with our clients is key to our success and their comfort level.  We are dedicated in offering impeccable service and making an appointment allows us to give you the proper time and attention while creating an unforgettable experience. We will provide service through your gown fitting process and can customize your pieces at any time.  You can be sure that when you visit you will be whisked away into a spa like environment where you can relax  and enjoy a cup of tea in a private intimate fitting room. Before you head to your first gown fitting you want to make sure that your bridal undergarments are all set. We recommend scheduling your undergarment fitting at least one month prior to your first gown fitting, to ensure that your undergarments are ready in case they need to be customized or adjusted. 

From your engagement, boudoir session, rehearsal dinner, getting ready, wedding day, honeymoon and beyond here at Beneath The Gown we love to tell brides that from your engagement and beyond you always need that solid foundation. Bridal undergarments don’t have to be just for your wedding day, you can bring in your engagement session outfits, rehearsal dinner dress, day after brunch outfit, special night out dresses for your honeymoon and we can ensure that everything fits you perfectly and comfortably with the right undergarments. As well as providing the perfect foundation for brides we also work with mother of the occasion and bridesmaids. 

Here is a sample of our pieces, there is so much more and also available in different colors.
