Corset Wedding Dress

Corset wedding dresses have been back on the wedding scene in a big way since 2018 - and we don’t meant the stiff Victorian undergarments of yesteryear. Instead corsets have been brought bang up-to-date, replaced with refreshed and feminine styles that can be both delicate and sexy.

Some of the corset’s renewed popularity can undoubtedly be attributed to its figure-flattering ingenuity that suits most body shapes and can have a slimming effect thanks to a cinched-in waist.

While the term may immediately conjure thoughts of provocative boudoir numbers, à la Moulin Rouge, the corset is not necessarily a risqué option. Rebecca Ingram’s pretty ‘Darlene’ dropped-waist wedding gown features a lovely lace bodice atop a ballgown skirt, finished with corset closure. Opt for the additional off-the-shoulder lace jacket with elbow-length sleeves for some seriously sophisticated coverage.

Of course, more delicate lingerie-inspired corset wedding dresses are available too, such as Sophia Tolli’s lace A-line wedding gown, which is simultaneously angelic and sensual.

While many brides may immediately think of A-line gowns solely featuring corsets, they do in fact feature across myriad wedding dress silhouettes. This crepe sheath bridal gown from Blush by Hayley Paige features a sculpted Marrakesh beaded bodice with an open corset detail back, that challenges the perception of a traditional corset.

The main thing to remember when choosing a corset wedding dress is to ensure you feel comfortable and the corset isn’t too tight or restricting in movement - the last thing you want is to spend your big day feeling uncomfortable.
