    I wore something that was similar to a corset. It’s called Body Magic.

    @engleman10513:  My dress had an INCREDIBLE built-in corset.

    That being said, I was a waist-training steel-boned corseter for years, so I feel pretty comfortable talking about the idea!

    Unless you’re wearing an ultra form-fitting dress (like a mermaid), I wouldn’t bother with a corset (plastic boned or steel)

    If your dress is extremely light (chiffon or light silk or something that shows Every. Little. Flaw), you might want to consider high-top Spanx (the kind that goes right up to your boobs)

    Or if you have ENORMOUS breasts, you might want a corset for the support.

    But they’re uncomfortable, inhibit your movement, and I wouldn’t reccommend one!

    @engleman10513:  My wedding hasn’t happened yet, bought I did buy one from Nordstrom that I will wear. I didn’t vote because I don’t know how it will turn out yet 🙂

    @engleman10513:  I’m not going to wear one.  Fortunately I don’t find the need for a corset.

    steel bones corsets are awesome, but you do need practice before donning one for the whole day of your wedding! They do constrict your movement somewhat and you do breathe differently with one on. I’d recommend using one a few months before your wedding for a few hours and see how you feel in them.

    @engleman10513:  I tried it on with the dress for the 1st fitting, but the dress needs to be taken in, so it’s tough to tell exactly what it’ll be like. I have this awesome problem where my bra size is one above my waist, so while I normally wear a 4, I had to get a dress in 6 in order to be able to breathe when it zipped. Of course, now it’s too big, even in the chest. I’m doing a 2nd fitting on Saturday, but the only thing that’s been altered thus far is the length.

    Forgot to mention, the corset I got at Nordstrom was $55. They had some pricier ones, but the salesperson told me I really don’t need one of those. I definitely recommend walking around a bit at home with it on if you buy it, the bones take some getting used to.
