There are various styles of wedding corsets to choose from. In the main, they come in either one piece or two pieces dresses. Each style has its own advantages.
The two-piece corset wedding dress is ideal for women who are different sizes above and below the waist line. With a traditional wedding gown, you have to compromise and go for one dress size. But with a corset wedding dress, you can choose two different sizes. So you can have a skirt in the size that fits you below the waist and then have a corset bodice in the exact size that will fit your upper body perfectly. That way the entire bridal wear is a perfect fit and a lot of brides with differing proportions find corset wedding dresses the ideal choice for them.
Another advantage of the two-piece corset bridal gown is that you can choose a bridal dress with two color combination. For example, you can have your skirt in traditional white and one corset bodice in white to match, which would be ideal for the formal church service and the formal photographs. Then you can have a second corset bodice in a different color which allows you to quickly and easily change your look for the evening reception. Only corset wedding dresses allow for such easy and cost effective flexibility for the bride.
On the other hand, a one-piece corset wedding dress has the advantage of being simple and without the fuss of having a separate skirt to adjust and fiddle with. Some of the wedding corsets even allow for more ease of use by having a hidden zip at the back. This allows the bride to wear and remove the corset without having to re-lace the whole corset top.
In terms of cost, a one-piece corset wedding dress is often cheaper than a two-piece one. But in my opinion, a two-piece bridal corset is well worth the extra cost in terms of the additional advantages and flexibility it offers. Firstly, the cost of a one-piece corset may quickly go up with potentially multiple alterations to get to the perfect fit, whereas a two-piece corset can be fitted to separate dimensions meaning less alterations. And as discussed previously, a two-piece bridal corset flatters unusual body shapes better and allows for a two color look if so
