I would wear the body shaper under your dress and change into a corset for your Fiance on the wedding night!

how much cinch does your current corset give you? you said you’ve worn proper ones before, there should be a good 3 to 4 inches of cinch, otherwise it’s too big. your corset should not close completely the first time you put it on.

@marie_sutton: it’s been over an hour, she can’t.

OP, i understand your post. I have a “real” corset as well that I might be wearing, depends on how they look together. i was worried about it showing through a bit too, but the boning on mine seems encased enough that it shouldn’t be a problem. if you want a smaller waist, go with the corset, if you’re looking for a smoother silhouette, go for the bodyshaper.

man i want a real corset! i suggest saving the real thing for after the wedding or for the wedding night and maybe going with a body shaper to wear under the dress. but thats completely up to you. one thing i noticed was that i was just so nasty after that night from dancing and sweating – i was really glad i saved the pretty stuff for the honeymoon.

yeah, since it’s closed, you’re not really going to be getting any cinching benefit – it may be pretty but that means it’s too large. but, if what you’re really interested in is posture and your current ones does that for you, then stick with it! personally, i can’t stand wearing spanx! they seem to make me look heavier not skinnier, so unless for some reason i look awesome with one in my dress, i’ll either go corset or without either. where are you looking at for real corsets? at the place i ordered mine from, i would have been able to do an exchange if i ordered too large – i would think that would hold true for most shops unless you’re getting it custom ordered. i don’t think you would have to worry anyway, you just take your waist measurement and subtract 3-4 inches and then that’s the size they build it for.
