“Do not binge eat before or after putting on the corset and avoid carbonated beverages and large amounts of carbs”

 

I don’t have advice to add, but… the above is all I plan to do on my wedding day. :  Good luck!

Lace your corset gradually on the day, starting with it comfortable then tightening by half an inch at a time.

Make sure the lacings are straight and parallel no matter how tight it is. (It shouldn’t bulge at the waist or at the top and bottom.)

Sip drinks slowly and eat small bites. I managed to drink most of a bottle of champagne at a 6″ reduction last week with no ill effects by pacing myself.

@Evie19: lol, sorry, I meant eating a lot and drinking carbonated beverages. I wasn’t planning on wearing a corset, I’m hoping spanx will do the job.

Where did you get your corsets from?

@boycesgirl: I get mine from Heavenly Corsets usually (my latest one is there below). I’m having my wedding corset made by my wedding dressmaker, Emmeline Couture.
