Getting the right bridal underwear to go beneath your wedding dress on your all important wedding day can be quite a demanding task, especially if you’ve left it to the last few weeks, thinking you’ll just pop into town and pick something up! So I thought I’d have a quick look at wedding corsets, different styles of bridal corset, what they can do for you and a few pitfalls to look out for when choosing your wedding corset.


What does a Wedding Corset do for You?

A bridal corset is still quite popular with modern brides when it comes to choosing wedding lingerie for their big day, but sometimes it’s maybe not the most appropriate underwear to go beneath their wedding dress. A wedding corset is particularly designed to pull your figure in at the waist to assist in producing a smooth and sculpted hourglass shape to your figure.


It does this by it’s particular design and structured boning that helps to pull the waist in by anything from up to 2″ – 4″. Modern day corsets are not like the corsets of old that were quite uncomfortable and restrictive to the point of impeding breathing of the wearer! On this point of a corsets boning, it’s important to note whether your wedding gown already has a structured bodice with boning in it, because if this is the case, then a structured corset will be more than likely be far too restrictive and not required!


What Style of Bridal Corset will suit my Neckline?

Remember your bridal lingerie should remain a well covered secret, with your underwear line remain hidden well out of view of guests and cameras! So the neckline of your wedding corset must sit well below that of your gown.

Floral Tapestry Wedding Corset

A strapless wedding corset is great for off the shoulder gown styles and straight necklines, but if you’ve fallen for a sweetheart neckline with a low plunge or even a low back dress style, then again beware! The strapless wedding corset above carries another desirable feature, that of a double lace up tie back, which basically allows you, the wearer to set your own level of comfort or waist cinching effect with this personal adjustment!

Low Back Wedding Corsets for Low Back Bridal Gowns.

I touched briefly a little earlier about open back or low back wedding gowns that are very popular at the moment, which also brings along its own difficulties in finding suitable wedding lingerie to go beneath and provide the necessary support. Not all wedding dresses will accommodate, but a low back wedding corset can sometimes be a life saver for some Brides, as not everyone is comfortable with the idea of not wearing any underwear for their boobs!


What Lingerie will Suit a Close Fitting Gown or Silk Wedding Dress?

As mentioned your wedding undies need to be the unsung hero or heroine of your wedding day, by providing comfort and support all through your day as well as shaping and toning your figure to enhance your wedding dress. It has to do all of this whilst remaining hidden well out of sight. Although, a little more costly it has to be said, but, a seamless wedding corset could come into it’s own here and fit nicely beneath a silk wedding dress or indeed a close fitting gown style.


When Do I need to get My Wedding Underwear?

If a corset is not your normal choice of lingerie or underwear, even if not just for special occasions, then make sure you allow plenty of time to shop around and find the right wedding corset for you. In doing so, you’ll give yourself plenty of time to get used to wearing it, trying it on with your final dress fitting to make sure it works in harmony with both you and your wedding dress. The morning of your wedding is far too late to find out your beautiful bridal corset doesn’t work with your perfect wedding gown!
