Your wedding day’s one of the most special days in your life and every bride wants to look picture perfect on their special day. You’ve got your dream wedding gown and with the right choice of bridal lingerie to go beneath the gown, you can get that fabulous figure for the wedding day. Being such a special day many brides see it as an opportunity to treat themselves & decide upon a wedding corset to help them achieve that toned hourglass shape to their figure. Now if you’re not very familiar with wearing corsets as underwear, a little bit of insight can be very helpful when it comes to choosing the right one for your bridal underwear.

Correct Size

First priority has got to be your comfort & support throughout the whole wedding day. So have your correct size handy, so your over bust, under bust & waist size. This will help you to start narrowing down your selection. If you feel your size may alter slightly on the run up to the day itself then you may consider a corset with a double tie up fastening at the rear and a hook and eye fastening at the front or side. This will allow you to adjust the waist cinching effect to suit your own comfort.

Underwear Outline

This isn’t the outline of your figure but more the outline of your corset with respect to your dress. If your gown has an opening or a low back design then you’ll want to opt for a strapless wedding corset and or one with a low back design, the last thing you want is your guest to see your bridal underwear.

Lingerie Material

With so many styles of corsets to choose from the material it’s made from has to be a factor too. If you have gone for a dress with a smooth outline & a close fit, on a light material i.e. a satin corset with lots of lace and embellishments is more likely to show through. So a seamless corset would be more appropriate for the wedding day and leave the lace for the honeymoon.


 Upper Body Support

One of the big features of a corset is the great level of support they provide. So pay some attention to the amount of boning your corset has, as well as the shape of the boning and whether its a steel boned corset (lots of support) or a plastic boned corset (more flexible). Pay some attention also to the design and shape of the boning to see where it’s going to have its greatest effect on your figure.

Underwear Colour

This is fairly straight forward, everyone likes colours to match, So trying and pick the colour of your corset to match as close as possible to your dress. In the unlikely event that anyone does catch a glimpse, then at least it won’t be glaringly obvious. In the brides favour there is a huge choice when it comes to colour even whites, creams and ivories you can get a huge variation. So match it as close as you can to the colour and tone of your dress.

Well that’s our first lingerie post on our new blog site and I hope it’s given brides to be out there some points to think about when it comes to choosing a wedding corset for the wedding day. Future posts I’m going to look at support from strapless wedding corsets and bridal bras, as well as a few featured posts from suppliers from around the wedding industry.
