Bridal Outfits and Corsets
Corsets are perfect for weddings, they are adjustable, so you can be loosened or tightened a small amount in order to accommodate a little weight lost or gained in between choosing your outfit and your wedding day without the need for costly alterations.Traditional brides will love the ivory silk dupion and satin from which these summer wedding outfits are created. The large bow on the Papillon corset bustier is very flattering on the bust, whilst the concealed zip allows the corset to be fastened easily before the lacing is tightened at the back. The Papillon outfit is completed by a matching floor-length skirt which is fitted at the hips, flares out at the knee into a fishtail shape, and has a small train as a finishing bridal touch. Our ruched-front corset bustier is simple and elegant, also with a concealed zip and a matching shorter, summery pleated skirt which flares to an a-line at the waist, flattering the hips. The sweetheart neckline is always a popular choice, shown here in ivory satin with a pretty bow at the empire line, which can be made in a contrasting colour if required. The flared skirt sits just below the knee, so you can keep cool without worrying about upsetting any prudish relatives, and the skirt can be worn with or without a petticoat underneath depending on whether you prefer a more traditional or 50s look.
You may want to both keep with traditional bridal colours such as ivory or white and add a touch of personality to your special outfit, so how about adding a splash of colour? A long, ivory silk, fishtail skirt would be perfect with our deep red overbust corset with a covered front busk and halter straps. The covered busk means that the silver clips at the front of the corset are hidden, which is ideal if your jewellery is made of gold or pearls. Adding a matching ivory silk halter tie brings the outfit together perfectly, as well as providing a little cover above the arms. For a more fun take on the ruched corset bustier, choose a white tulle skirt and the corset in a deep red, which can come laced at the back with white ribbon to match the skirt. It doesnt just have to be deep red or silk - we have a large selection of satins, prints, brocades and taffetas in many colours, so please do pop in to see us or send us an email if you would like any of these outfits in a different colour or fabric. If you are an experienced corset wearer and would like a dramatic waist reduction along with the most amazingly smooth, curvaceous silhouette, then the absolutely stunning Swarovski-encrusted overbust corset is the one for you. With a traditional straight push-up bust line, this corset has a longer body and highly accentuates the curve between the waist and the hip. The corset is shown here with our fishtail skirt which is available in black or white, and satin opera gloves, which are for the moment only online in black, but can be ordered over the telephone in several different lengths and colours.
We have met so many disheartened brides whove found their dream wedding dress but however much they breathe in just cant get the zip to do up that last couple of inches! Never fear - although the beautiful and detailed corsets above wouldnt be very helpful under a dress, we have a selection of cheat corsets and shaping girdles to give you a gorgeous, smooth hourglass figure under your outfit. Chosen with care, nobody need ever know that its the steel bones doing all the work! These corsets have been chosen especially for their strength yet slenderness, as bulky fabrics and trims would be much more difficult to hide underneath a dress. Underbust corsets are great for dresses with low backs or structured cups, or if you would feel more comfortable wearing a bra underneath the dress. Our longline underbust sits just under the bust and curves over the hips, pulling in the waist and covering any unsightly bulges, or if youd prefer just to have the waist reduction try our ever-popular shorter underbust instead. There are several shapes of overbust corset which would be suitable - our bestseller sweetheart neckline corset shown above, our version for larger busts, or the deep plunge overbust for very daring dresses! Of course, all these corsets are available in underwear colours of plain ivory, white and peach as well. The Vargas dress by Kiss Me Deadly completely destroys any preconceptions of shapewear being unsexy. Featuring a structured bra and powermesh instead of bones, this garter dress will hold you in and keep you comfortable all day. For more ideas, see our selection of shapewear and girdles.
We hope this has given you some new and exciting ideas for your perfect wedding outfit. Our staff are enthusiastic about corsets and always happy to discuss any ideas you may have, as well as being able to suggest suitable outfits. If you already have a firm picture of your ideal wedding outfit in your head and would like us to make it for you from scratch, please get in touch with our designer, who will be able to take you through the design and custom creation process from start to finish. And dont forget, we dont only showcase bridal corsets in our Spitalfields boutique, but also many outfits your bridesmaids will adore.
