Corset-styled dresses are in vogue and you should definitely consider them while picking your wedding dress. These dresses have that sexy and easy-fit element which spice up the bridal attire. Many go for these due to the classic-figure correcting ease it gives, ensuring that you look like the perfect bride.
The variety available in this style is very extensive and there is something for everyone. From summery to rich and elegant to a regal look, you can work your way around this kind of pattern in a number of styles.

Modern or Modest

Firstly, you need to decide the look you want to don and accordingly go for modern or modest patterns. If you want to look truly stunning, opt for the strapless pieces.
This style, with a deep 'V' neckline, is sure to give you a modish look. You can also opt for those having a higher waistline. A high waistline with a single shoulder is another amazing style. Off-shoulder corset top dresses also look classy.
The long, flowing gowns with semi-transparent, off-shoulder tops will make for an elegant-looking bridal apparel. For those who want to keep it decent, can opt for strapped or cap-sleeved corset gowns.
Long sleeve dresses with a corset bodice gives a modest look. Apart from the shoulder and neckline, the embellishments and length can be worked on to give a desired look.

Figure-Correcting Styles

These dresses are ultimate pieces of fashion clothing which highlight the best features of your body. Moreover, these often come in figure-correcting styles.
For example, a thin bride who wants to wear a perfect figure look on her wedding, can easily do so with a corset dress. These dresses come with inner padding which will smartly enhance your existing figure.
The long tops extending below the regular waistline which make the torso appear longer are best for petite brides. Also, those clinched waistlines are perfect for creating an illusion of a smaller tummy for those wishing so. Fuller figures can check out the plus size dresses which offer great fitting, helping to create an illusion of an hourglass figure.
Apart from the lacing pattern, which is the prime characteristic of a corset top, these dresses also have an option of an invisible zipper. It helps you get ready faster instead of adjusting the lacing. You can also have the lacing on a base fabric or without one up to the waist for a modish look.


The basic patterns include one-piece or two-piece dresses. Usually, those looking for body correcting pieces, will have to go for the one piece pattern. Two-piece pattern with an ideal-sized top and skirt is best for those perfect figures. Next, you can go for a full length gown or a tea length dress.
The tea length dresses will give a classy, young, and fresh look. This style, in colors like white, yellow, and baby pink are best for a casual wedding attire. You can go for horizontal layers from the waist till the hemline to make it more funkier.
The full length dresses are best for a grand look. You can have cascading layers for the bottom, straight-fit bottom, slits, or an extra-colorful, embellished and semi-transparent layer over the plain bottom part. White is not an essential when you think of the colors. Hot reds, feminine pinks, cool blues and sunny yellows, all can go well for such dresses.
You can have dual-colored dresses as well. A popular pattern is that the lacing and backing fabric is in a color contrast with the rest of the dress. The use of semi-transparent material with shimmer for the bodice is also much popular.
If you are opting for a corset-styled wedding dress, you can experiment with the patterns before finally deciding on a unique and ultimate piece. Check out the various styles and options, pick the right material and colors, and get ready to look charming as ever.
