Allyg:  Underbust corset. They don’t come up so high and it keeps your options open re bra (so your girls aren’t flattened and can be boosted with a push up or sewn in cups etc). Tight lace in the middle to give a stronger contrast but be careful if your dress is clingy/flowy, you don’t want a reverse muffin top so make sure you get a ‘long line’ or wear smoothing shape wear for you hips/thighs.

I’m actually going to not recommend a corset, particularly if you’ve never worn one before.  I wouldn’t recommend buying any corset that’s not custom made, and there would be a very slim chance you’d be able to get a custom made corset in 3 weeks.  I agree with this post regarding corsets at weddings: 

The post recommends a few shapewear brands.  I’d also suggest Rago.

Typical shapewear like Spanx just pulls you in all over, so you have the same shape as you did before, just a little smaller.  You’ll need something with targeted slimming at the waist to get what you’re looking for!
