@afake79:  If your dress is boned, you should be fine. I wouldn’t buy anything until after your first fitting!

While you COULD wear a steel-boned corset, I can tell you as a former every-day steel-boned corset wearer that they are INCREDIBLY uncomfortable and are VERY hard to move in.

You will prolly need a corset because normal shapewear doesn’t normally come that small, and shapewear usually just compresses/moves around fat. You probably don’t have much fat if you have a 23″ waist. Check out a corset story: http://www.corset-story.com/steel-boned-corsets.html

PS Anyone else think this is a troll post? Why would you have your handle/name be ‘Afake’

Does your dress have a corset back? If so you should be able to just get it altered to cinch in at the waist, rather than having to wear TWO corsets.

I’m pretty sure it’s the strings on a corset that allow that super cinched waist look so zips might not work, and hooks would be harder to do up than strings I’d think. But I’m not a corset expert!

At that size, I suspect that any shapewear will add bulk you’re not going to like, as a trade off for waist-cinching. Sorry!

@afake79:  Corsets are not comfortable . . .period. Most corsets are hard to put on and i would suggest having someone help you. Especially if you are wanting to cinch your waist it will have to be tight.

 

I find several corsets on Amazon and ebay. You just have to look arounf. But here is a basic waist training corset without the bustier.
