All MoriLee Corset Wedding Gowns are 10% off during our Trunk Show!

8285-0276 Laura back corsetMany brides love the body contouring fit of a gown with a built-in corset. Corsets can be extremely effective at smoothing and enhancing curves. The true bonus of a corset is that it can actually make you look slimmer and trimmer!

You will find many of these gorgeous gowns from MoriLee and a Preview of their 2019 Collection during our Trunk Show taking place now through June 24th.  Brides who purchase a MoriLee Wedding Gown during this event will receive 10% off their dress.  Appointments are required, so please ring us today to secure your visit.

The miraculously transformative corset obviously requires significant preparation time. Plan on spending an additional 45 minutes of time to have someone properly lace your gown according to our instructions below.  These step by step corset lacing instructions were written by one of our acclaimed seamstresses, Glenda:

How to Lace Up a Corset on a Wedding Dress

At least One hour prior to the ceremony:
1. Begin by having the bride put the dress on and holding it up in the appropriate place against her bust line as her helper(s) begin lacing.
2. Start by putting the lace though the top loop on each side of the dress. The lace should be flat, the seam on the bottom and with the lace ends coming from the inside to the outside of the loops. Adjust the lace so each end is the same length.
3. Now, take the left side lace end and put it though the top open loop on the right. Go from the inside to the outside of the loop.
4. Both laces are now on the right.

Begin the lacing process:
1. Take the top lace. Cross to the left side. Go through the top open loop, going from the inside to the outside. Using the SAME lace, cross to the right side and go through the top open loop, going from the inside to the outside.
2. Take the other lace (now the top loose lace on the right side) and cross to the left side. Go through the top open loop, going from the inside to the outside. Using the SAME lace, cross to the right side and go through the top open loop, going from the inside to the outside.
3. Repeat until you reach the bottom.
4. At the bottom, take the top lace on the right and go through the last loop on the left, from the inside to the outside of the loop and loosely secure.

Tightening:
1. Inform the bride you are going to start pulling on her dress. She may want to lean on a wall for balance.
2. Starting at the top, grasp the X that the lace forms and pull. Transfer the X to the other hand. Grasp the next X with the first hand and pull while releasing the first X. Keep the lace flat as you work.
3. Adjust the back panel, keeping it level.
4. Repeat the process until the bride is secure, but comfortable. You may start at any point in the lacing, depending on where dress needs to be tightened.
5. The sides of lace up should form a V.
6. Knot the lace ends together. Make a bow with ends or tuck them into the dress and trim excess lace.

7. Sit, stand and walk around to become comfortable for at least an hour before you walk down the aisle. Then, have a Wonderful Wedding Day!

We also suggest the bride allow the corset to become accustomed to her body for at least an hour prior to walking down the aisle. In summary, wearing a corset is time-consuming, but so very worth the extra effort.
