thanx a million for everything Ann...Now I can't wait to get a
cinch corset next!!!!" -- Love Elyse, San Francisco,
"Hello Ann, hope all is well with you...The Wedding was a true
fairy tale!! Did Ken send you pic's? I was surprised that I had
held my Bouquet the whole time hence not getting the greatest
picture's of my waist in corset. I would be happy to come over
sometime after honeymoon with the corset and have you take
pictures if you'd like, or you may have enough already--just a
thought. I got so many compliment's on the corset Ann, I can't
wait to wear it again!" --

It our pleasure to help you answer the question we most often
hear from Brides:
"How can I achieve the most trim and curvaceous figure with the
best possible presentation in my wedding gown using a foundation
corset, or incorporating one of your corsets as outwear in my
wedding corset ensemble?"
It is also our pleasure to help Brides address the ubiquitous
concern of how to trim a few inches off their waistline
figure with a suitable waist-training corset!
ROMANTASY has specialized in custom corsetry since 1990. We're
advised hundreds, if not thousands, of brides and their Bridal
Party members, who appreciate the figure-enhancing qualities of
custom corsetry. We delight in assisting you to design a simple
and sexy corset as the most effective possible foundation
garment to improve the fit of your wedding gown, or as elegant
or ornate outwear and part of your visible wedding ensemble.
An added benefit is the fact that a corset provides everyone
maximum long-term value for the often substantial wedding
wardrobe investment. Specifically, after the wedding, a wedding
corset, or even a simple foundation corset, can be paired as
outerwear with a skirt or even slacks, or you may continue to
wear your corset for undergarment figure-shaping for many, many
years to come. We do hope, however, that you only wear your
wedding dress once, and that it be a very happy occasion for you
and your lucky Sweetie!
Corsets as Foundation Wear
Today, one often sees readymade gowns that simulate corsets in
their boned bodices. At ROMANTASY, we amusedly refer to these
gowns as "wannabe corsets." However and too often, readymade
gowns--even some expensive designer gowns we've seen which were
purchased in high-end boutiques and bridal salons--typically
provide no, or inconsequential, figure-shaping. A substantial,
figure-enhancing foundation garment is required.
However, the proper foundation garment is often not discussed by
bridal salons more interested in promoting a fantasy and making
an expensive dress sale, than in helping a bride bring her
fantasy to the most beautiful reality possible. Some salons
simply don't bother to mention a foundation garment at all.
This question leads to our assurance that a fine, haute courture
made-to-measure corset, may be the perfect solution for you! It
will readily and comfortably enhance your figure, reduce your
waistline instantaneously and comfortably by from one to three
inches, smooth out curves, improve the shape of and support
for your bosom, and result in an immediate, oftimes dramatic,
improvement of posture, including the best possible fit of your
wedding gown and
Corsets as Outerwear
As many of our brides do, you may choose almost any
ROMANTASY corsetieres produce, and team it
with a coordinating skirt, sleeves, stole, or jacket to create a
dazzling corset ensemble for your special wedding day. Even a
simple waist-cincher corset can be worn over the midriff of a
full wedding gown for proper waistline reduction and shaping.
The very same instantaneous waist-reduction and figure-shaping
results from wearing a corset as the bodice of your ensemble, as
it does from a foundation corset.
imagine any of the more vibrantly-colored corsets shown on our
website, executed in traditional ivory, white, or a more
adventurous color satin or brocade.
Even mothers-of-the-bride, maids of honor, and bride's maids
will appear elegant and stylish with a corset-dress, or corset
bodice underneath a jacket.
Corsets for Pre-Wedding Waist-Trimming and Training
You may also wish to purchase a comfortable, underbust Victorian
Training Corset (or
Waist-Training Belt) to be delivered from
one to three months before your wedding date. This garment or
belt can be worn daily and combined with ROMANTASY's specific,
simple, written Nutrition and Movement Program to enhance a
pre-wedding exercise program you have implemented, or boost your
progress in trimming off a few waistline inches or even pounds.
This unique process with which ROMANTASY has achieved remarkable
success and recognition, is called "Waist Training," and you may
read about it in our book, "Corset Magic: A Fun Guide to Trim
Your Waist and Figure".
