On your wedding day you will want to look your best and a great way of achieving a perfect shape is to wear a bridal corset. A good, well fitted corset will draw attention to your figure by emphasising your bust and hips while, at the same time, drawing-in your waist.
It’s a good idea to choose your corset either before or at the same time as your wedding dress so that the style and shape will work together to create the perfect form.
Bear in mind that you will be wearing your corset for most of the day so make sure that you don’t have it laced over-tight. Try to wear your corset a few times before the big day so that you can get used to the feel and judge how tight you need it to be laced.
