Perfect for sculpting your body into a miraculous shape, today’s styles use new technology, softer fabric and invisible fastenings so that no one, apart from your lucky, lucky groom, need know!
We love the new styles from Myla, whose stunning silk satin Meredith corset offers a flattering shape that will define your waist, lift your bust, and even look good worn with jeans after the big day. If vintage styling is your thing, try What Katy Did for some truly fabulous vintage inspired pieces that offer a blend of sexy appeal with modern cut and colour.
Lace-up bridal corsets
With an old-fashioned style lace-up corset you too can capture some of the elegance of the sassy and sexy Scarlet O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. That ultra feminine shape is more appealing and more enduring than any modern day ‘size zero’. Let your long hair down and have your groom un-lace you – it’ll add another very special memory to the night.
Over or under bust corsets
Corsets come in over bust and under bust varieties – the over bust beingmore appropriate for a bride-to-be and certainly more useful if you have any kind of bosom to support. The under bust variety are more revealing and better saved for the bedroom.
For anyone wanting a corset look without the rigid boning or lacing, a basque could be just the thing. Made from stretchy satin and lace a basque, just like a corset, should have suspenders for your stockings and may also have removable straps to make it strapless or backless as needed.
