Well, if you’re wanting to slim your waist down and get a more hourglass shape to your natural outline then a wedding corset is a good starting point. Corsets are designed to comfortably pull you in at the waist while providing good upper body support. Be mindful of the boning in the corset and any in your dress, you don’t want to restrict your movement too much!

Your bridal lingerie needs to work in harmony with your gown and your body to get the best overall result, so as well as comfort and support, think about where your underwear will sit in relation to your dress line. So an open neck or off the shoulder dress will need a strapless wedding underwear solution, an open or low back dress will need a low back wedding bustier or corset.
