Happy Friday beautiful bees!
I’ve noticed several posts about an “inner corset” in many wedding gowns and I’m wondering if anyone as a picture of one and/or can explain the whole deal to me? I’m not mentally ready to do any “in person” gown shopping yet. To be very blunt, I’m going to need some serious structural support on my wedding day and was just planning to wear a Victorian style corset under my gown. I do historical reenacting so an honest to goodness corset doesn’t bother me. Frankly, I consider it a good investment. How much “suck it in” power does an inner corset usually have?
Just for the sake of discussion, I’m leaning towards these gowns so far:

Some dresses have corsets built right into them. They can be laced up or zipped or buttoned up and then the outside layer of the dress is zipped.
They are similar to how some shirts have built in “shelf” bras or built in support… do you know what I mean?
I tried on a dress with an inner corset and basically, it replaced the need for any undergarment support or structure. Since the dress is made for your size, it eliminates having to find a corset that works with it. Even though it’s technically an extra layer, the dress should feel like 1 piece (which it is).

My Dress is BONNY 916 and it has a inner corset. It has little metal loops, like on a regular bra. And what it does is FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!! When the corset is closed, it can hold my dress up and in place all on it’s own. I don’t even have to zip up the zipper. Not to mention that it makes me look super skinny (I’m a size 16, but my dress is a size 14) Because the corset holds everything in and it just makes me look great! Also, it elminated the need for a bra. Which is a plus, besides who wants to wear all that extra junk under your dress on your wedding day. I love my BONNY dress and would deff. recommend the brand to anyone, especially full0figured girls! Best of LUCK!!!

This is my dress, so my back is pretty close to the dresses your looking at. I would really recommend you trying on those dresses. The inner-corset is great!!

@mkropidlowski: Thanks for the recommendation! Your gown is absolutely stunning – honestly, my first thought was “Wow, how did I miss that one?!” I love the softness of the skirt and the draping. I’m slowing starting to look forward to actually trying some dresses on. Thanks again!
