What is a Corset Wedding Dress? 

A corset wedding dress features a structured bodice consisting of boning that slims the waist and supports the bust. While wedding gowns today may have a corset that closes with a zipper, they often feature a lace-up back with grommets or loops and a ribbon. While lace is a standard fabric used on corset bodices, a variety of wedding dress fabrics, including sheer illusion tulle and satin, may be used. Here are a few benefits of wearing a corset wedding dress on your big day! 

  • They offer fantastic support. The boning in a corset provides amazing support for those brides with a bigger bust or who simply want to feel more secure in their wedding dress. Think of a corset as built-in shapewear! This style of gown can work with any body type. 
  • The fit is adjustable. If you opt for a gown with a lace-up corset, you can adjust the fit of your gown throughout the wedding day to be tighter or looser. Corset wedding dresses are also ideal if you think you may fluctuate in weight before your wedding day. Unlike a zipper, there is more wiggle room! 
  • Corsets work for any bridal style. Want the structure of the corset but not the look? There are so many wedding gowns with an inner corset! For the bride who wants to show off their shape, many designers now feature sheer corsets with exposed boning for a sexy and fashion-forward look. From Victorian to super modern, corsets work with every bridal style.

What Accessories Can You Wear with a Corset Wedding Dress? 

Corset wedding dresses are wonderfully versatile and can be worn with various accessories depending on the style of the gown. Two accessories we particularly love with corset wedding gowns are detachable sleeves and overskirts! Wearing detachable sleeves are a beautiful way to add additional coverage or take your corset dress from sexy to traditional for the ceremony. An overskirt is an excellent choice for the bride who wants a princess moment with a full skirt for the ceremony and a sexy fitted look for the reception.
