Whether or not you are having one of our fabulous bridal outfits, then your thoughts have to focus on what you are going to wear under your dress. Do you want to wear a corset, a basque, bustier, torsolette or just a longline bra? You do want to look good all day for your partner!
Perhaps a basque like the one shown above left, which nips in the waist and lifts up the bosom and comes complete with detachable, multi-way straps should you need that extra support. Or alternatively, a longline strapless bra like the one shown above right. The most cleavage without straps. Featuring concealed boning, for a smooth look, and detachable push-up pads. Just perfect for gowns with lower bustlines and lower backs.
Corsets of course, are what FairyGothMother is famous for, and we have a great collection of beautiful corsets like the one above left, to suit you. If you want a slightly lower back, or perhaps the extra support of a halter or straps, we have a style that is probably perfect for you.
And finally, if you are on a tight budget, we also have some bridal corsets, bustiers, basques and long line strapless bras in the Bridal section of the FairyGothMother Last Chance to Buy sale.
Whenever the big day is, we’re always happy to answer any questions you may have in your planning. Just call or email us. Alternatively, if you’d like to visit us in person at our London boutique to discuss an outfit or corset for the big day, we would ask that you contact us to arrange an appointment. Thank you.

This outfit is easily recognisable as a Dior-esque, New Look silhouette – always a classic for a glamorous event, or anything with a retro theme. The bold florals on the corset (above) bring the seasonal element but are strongly hued enough to manage being paired with black without losing their impact. A halter neck gives the impression of modesty, whilst the full circle skirt over a petticoat will have you twirling with enthusiasm!
If you are going to an event with fans of the 40′s and 50′s, wear the above with seamed hosiery and classic heels. For a more contemporary look – perhaps for a daytime wedding – try bare legs or sheer, skin toned hosiery, and perhapsa more modern heel that picks up on a colour in the corset.
This is the same skirt, this time styled for Ascot! This outfit means you can enter the Royal Enclosure – here in the UK there are some interesting rule about being near royalty, and the end result is modest necklines and big hats. For the Royal Enclosure, you must be wearing shoulder straps of not less than one inch, and you must have a hat, or a “substantial fascinator”. We’re not entirely sure which this is – somewhere in between perhaps!
This outfit (above)is very classic, almost red carpet with the hair down, with a trained skirt and bold contrast panelling, but with the red and black colourway would be bit much for the average daytime Summer Wedding. For the evening though, its a fairly simple and stylish option. Again, if the bare shoulders would upset a more conservative audience, a cover up is always a useful option. One of our ex-staff members is addressing a large group of bankers next week, and will be adding a fairly extensive shrug to her corset outfit!
Alternatively, for a more cocktail party look, pair a pencil skirt with a paler colour of corset. If you wanted to make this more daytime, lose the black hosiery, and add a hair flower. In this case, we kept the skirt in a nice quality of cotton, which is great for warmer times, and tones down the overall level of formality.
Last, but not least, two outfits that are great if you’re off to an evening party and really love your lingerie! A high waisted skirt is a fantastic addition to your wardrobe if you have a slight addiction to lingerie that’s so good you want to show it off. On the left, we’ve paired a Cadolle high waisted satin shapewear skirt (which has a beautiful corset-laced effect back) with an Ayten Gasson silk teddy. Ayten’s styles are perfect for a fun, flirty show and are perfectly respectable over a bra and under a skirt. Her laid back frills both complement and contrast with the sleeker skirt that would look more formal with other styles, and she often shoots her styles in a Summer garden setting.
On the right, we’ve put a Kiss Me Deadly bra with a high waisted cotton skirt and a waterfall style chiffon shrug – as you can see, a shrug really does make an outfit look very different, and with a detailed midi or longline bra and no skin showing, it simply looks like an unusual dress. With the feathers ( is this substantial enough?) and the black and red colour scheme, this would be great for a glamorous evening party – or perhaps a show or dinner club.
Of course, many of you have no doubt done this better than us by now – so why not send in your pictures? Just send them in to us…corsets @ luluandlush.com

Playful and exquisite, Lulu and Lush’s Alice collection captures the essence of the elegant and curious little girl, who finds herself drawn down a rabbit hole and into her own Wonderland. The sumptuous powder blue satin, delicate spotted mesh, luxuriously soft tulle and twinkling charms delight the eye whilst spiral steel boning and powermesh provide structure and shape.
With padded heart-shaped satin cups, the underwired plunge bra is both flattering and functional. The ruched white straps are adjustable and elasticated, guaranteeing a perfect fit. The bra features sheer sides in baby blue spotted mesh, and closes at the back with a hook-and-eye fastening. Complete the set with either the matching soft mesh and satin heart knickers, or sheer frilled brief.
In floaty, spotted mesh, the collared bed jacket with gathered frill detailing is as perfect on the beach as it is in the boudoir, and adds extra glamour to the lingerie set.
The corset in powder blue satin is fully steel boned to comfortably reduce the waist by 4″ whilst shaping the hips and emphasising the bust. With a front metal busk closure and fully adjustable back lacing over a modesty panel, the corset is available in sizes 20″-30″ (suitable for 24″-34″ natural waists) and is trimmed with matching blue spotted mesh and tiny heart-shaped charms which catch the light beautifully.
Designed with curves in mind, the Alice girdle sits just under the bust and comes down over the hips to create a smooth hourglass silhouette. Created from powermesh and stretch satin, the girdle features a spotted mesh overlay and satin inserts on either side of the centre pannel to draw the eye to the narrowest part of the waist. Four detachable white suspender straps are provided to keep stockings in place, and the girdle is finished off with a satin ruffle and adorable ribbon bows.
L-R: Alice powermesh girdle, S-XL, £49. Girdle worn over plunge bra, as above. Alice overbust corset with heart trim, 20″-30″, £210, suitable for natural waists from 24″-36″.
The powder blue prom skirt reaches just below the knee whilst the pure white ballet skirt flares out to the ankle, emphasising the waist and picking out the satin bow detail of the corset. Both skirts feature layers of soft tulle netting lined with satin, a hidden zip and a satin waistband which enable the skirts to sit perfectly when worn with the matching corset.
The full bustle gives Alice a burlesque twist, featuring lashings of hand-draped, beautifully soft satin and mesh. With front ribbon ties, the bustle can either be worn around the waist or lower on the hip and tucked underneath the corset.
The collection was exclusively previewed on the catwalk during Old Spitalfields Market Fashion Week and at the Corset & Diamonds party in May where classically trained pianist and international burlesque starlet Chrys Columbine debuted the collection with a piano-playing striptease act.
