Brides caught up with negligee and erotica expert, as well as CEO for Coco de Mer (one of the most luxurious lingerie brands in the world), Lucy Litwack. We wanted to know how women should select their underwear for the night of their wedding. We wanted advice from the expert, as well as myths busted. And what she wrote didn't let us down...
