When we picture a bride to be on a Hen night, we see L plates, capes, angel wings, traffic cone hats and phallic accessories but believe it or not, the Hen actually starts off in a pretty normal outfit.
It’s only when meeting up with friends during the hen night that decorations are added which sometimes cover the whole get up underneath.
Bearing in mind, this is your last night of freedom, you will no doubt be active as you dance and you do want to make jaws drop (just to boost the ego before your wedding day) what outfit should you wear?
Forget the Short Skirt
You may have gorgeous legs; you may have the perfect skirt but trust us, not for your hen night. The short skirt is the worst choice for a raucous night with friends who like to hang objects from every orifice!
Not only will it reveal your underwear when you inevitably fall to the floor with a huge tipsy group girl hug, it also has the potential to drop to your ankles when net skirts and L-plates are hung from it.
Forget the Loose Top
Loose tops are brilliant for hiding a multitude of sins, but have you ever dangled a plastic willy from one, or added angel wings to the look? If you haven’t, try it out. Of course with all the accessories you’re never going to look ultra-sophisticated but a loose top will just gather, sag and crinkle, revealing the bits you wanted to hide in the first place, a hassle you don't want on a hen night.
Invest in Figure Controlling Pants
Unless you really do want a last fling (we’re not ones to judge), take advantage of the fact that a) you won’t be seeing your fiancé and b) the only one that will have access to your underwear is you. You can then streamline your figure underneath with Bridget Jones underwear that removes the need for baggy clothes.
Think about Shorts and Sensible Heels
Shorts with sensible heels are ideal. Your legs will look great in the heels and you can show off some of your best assets. They’re practical, won’t reveal your underwear and if they’re denim or linen they’ll be ideal for clipping on hen party objects. You can even add a belt. If they are also quite figure hugging you won’t feel like the marshmallow man when that net skirt is added to the mix. Your thigh will also look ultra-sexy when the garter goes on too!
What’s on Top?
An off the shoulder top will not last long, and your chest is unlikely to remain discreetly undercover. A strappy one, with a wonder bra would be fabulous or even a low cut figure hugging T-shirt. You can always accessorize with bangles, necklaces and belts, but you may find your friends have that covered!
Don't forget to also consider your surroundings, being on a hen night in Edinburgh may completely differ from a hen night in Bournemouth. You don't want to be caught out by the cold temperatures or the glorious sun down by the by the beach, so where possible plan ahead.
