Have you checked out the Uptight-Clothing website? She mostly does dresses for plus size brides.

This lady is probably around your size:

Corsets look best on slightly bigger girls, to be honest. The more you’ve got to squish the more exaggerated the shape you can make comfortably.

Make absolutely sure it’s steel-boned, though. Plastic boning in a corset is a plus-size girl’s worst enemy.

It really depends on how your weight is distributed. I think, most of the time, corsets look great on women size 14 and above if fitted properly.

I am not a plus-sized bride but I just wanted to say I think this can be a very flattering look on a plus-sized figure. Very old-school goddess. I actually find very thin frames in corsets a bit off, I think it is garment meant to show off a lady with some curves. I bet you can rock it!

@allyfally:  Yeah, back lacing gives you a much better cinch but front lacing isn’t bad.

i didnt think i could pull my dress that i bought off so i didnt add it to the list of contenders, but my consultant brought it to me because she thought it would be great on me and she was right!  but i guess mine would be corset, as it has boning. i should add, it is classified as a drop waist.

@cemetree:  They do. I seriously considered going down to her to get my dress made, but I loved the dressmaker I ended up with and she’s now a good friend!

@allyfally:  I love Fairy Goth Mother.  I own a corset from there and while they are very, very expensive, their product is fantastic!  I’d splurge on one. =]

Mine is a Maggie Sottero corset. I’m a comfortable size 12. It brought me in quite a bit.
