Underneath every great dirndl is a great set of underwear. Sometimes the perfect bra can make or break your Oktoberfest look. So lets start at the top and work our way down, finding out which undergarments work best for your dirndl and what to avoid.
#1 Gotta have a great bra!
There are so many different types of bras out there… probably to go along with all types of boobs! I find the key to giving yourself a great dirndl body using undergarments starts with the right bra. I have small ones, so I use the Victoria’s Secret Bombshell push-up and I love it! It really makes my dirndls fit so much better and creates the illusion of an even smaller waist. If you have big boobs, my friends use the Body by Victoria’s Secret Demi Bra. “My bra has natural support, no extra padding or push-up… it lifts them up without pushing them all out and in your face!” Now don’t think your bra has to be from Victoria’s Secret, the key is giving your bust a nice shape, fits well, and puts the ladies where they are supposed to be.
Whether you have big tatas or you are a member of the itty bitty titty committee, my number one advice is a NUDE bra! One of the biggest bra mistakes that I see women make is wearing a bright color or a print. It’s the easiest way to find yourself looking silly when your bra color shows through your blouse. Sometimes, even with a black blouse you can run into trouble. So if your going to spend the money on a dirndl bra, go nude! You won’t regret it!
#2 Nice fitting underoos!
Everyone has their panty preferences, but with a dirndl I have 2 suggestions depending on your dirndl activities. For those who are going to be primarily dancing, go with cotton! No one wants super swamp ass while your polkaing. For those who are primarily drinking beers, eating German food and enjoying company, go for some shapewear. With a shaping underwear you can enjoy more of the decadent German items like a nice Hefeweizen and Schweinshaxen without worrying about your dirndl shrinking 😉 Something like the Spanx Undie-tectable Panty is a great choice!
Either way… you may also want to consider some bloomers! The Rare Satin Bloomers, super cute, sexy little shorts that will allow you to really dance and spin on the dance floor without any unwanted wardrobe malfunction.
Although you may not always need a pair of tights or an undershirt, sometimes they can be very important. Tights can add a personal spin on a traditional dirndl or a great way to stay warm if you know that its going to be a bit chilly at the Oktoberfest. Control top tights can also give you even more slimming shape if thats something your looking for. Speaking of chilly… a simple way to give yourself more layers without changing the look of your dirndl is to wear a tight tank top. My new favorite is the nude BKE Super Long Strappy Tank Top. Its a tight slimming tank that doesn’t interfere with your blouse neckline. I love it and it’s what the model wore in the In Bloom Dirndl Video!
