BRIDAL

From a simple underwear corset to a full corseted wedding gown. I can help you achieve your fantasies. A corset will give you a fabulous shape and support without crash diets or underwear searches. Just a wonderful, curvaceous shape and stunning design.

bridal gowns

A fully corseted ensemble or gown makes a fabulous wedding dress. Your figure will look at it's optimum, you won't need to worry about strapless bras slipping or ugly spanx. What's more, you'll be able to have input into the design of your dress at every stage. Which makes your dress all the more personal. Perhaps you have a piece of lace from a relative's dress you'd like incorporated, or picture of a gown you've always dreamed of. The finest silks and satins, French couture laces or local Ayrshire lace, embroidery and beading all come together to make you feel and look amazing. From simple to dramatic, as long as there's a corset at the core of it we can help.

lingerie corsets

Underwear corsets are a staple, and are designed around my regular bespoke styles but with a few extra touches, such as inner embroidered details and a hidden sky blue ribbon for your 'Something Blue'. They are designed to work with your gown. A corset under your bridal gown will allow the dress to hang perfectly with no strain. It will make full, heavy skirts more comfortable by spreading the weight away from your upper hip, just as they did in past times. It will also help you achieve that amazing silhouette seen in 40s and 50s dresses, a look that the dress alone won't recreate.

Matching knickers can be made and suspenders can be added as required. Garters can also be made to match.

Treasures

Perhaps you'd like to include part of your mum's dress, as in the photograph above. The back panel and some other elements were taken from the bride's mum's gown with enough to spare for her sister. Or, you could add some precious lace, or a piece of jewellery. So many possibilities. 

 
The corset is perfect! You can’t see it at all under the dress and it fits perfect across the bust - thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job, I’m really delighted.
Thank you for being so great and lovely to deal with, I’m really glad I found your website!
