[Custom wedding gown by Starkers!, as seen on OBB here. More details about this particular wedding here.]

wedding1Sure, Starkers! Corsetry does traditional wedding gowns … but they definitely specialize in offbeat corset-based wedding attire: black & white, red, vinyl, stripes, Gothic wedding gowns, and oooh so much more.

Starkers! corsets and gowns can be created for any size, from teeny petite-y to plus sized, and are almost always two piece, so you actually can wear your corset after your wedding. Because the corsets and gowns are exactly to your measurements, they're relatively comfortable to wear all day. Despite the 26 steel bones, they're still flexible enough to dine, dance, and celebrate in.

Founded by Diana DiNoble, Starkers! has been creating custom corsets for 17 years — 11 years of that online. This is all to say, holy shit ladies: Diana knows what she's doing.

Each corset is custom made using the measurements and information you provide to create a garment that will fit your individual body and style. Whether you are a woman, man, plus size or petite, they take the time to draft your pattern and construct your one of a kind corset using the quality fabrics and leathers. All of Starkers! corsets are constructed for strength and durability and can provide a moderate, natural curve, but are also suitable for tight lacing and every day wear.

  6. I love that dress, the first one! I'm due to wed'n I would totally LOVE to marry in that dress. Its fantastically, stunningly beautiful! But I live in Camborne, UK so where can I get sucha stunning dress made like that? I don't want my partner to think its a normal, white wedding! I really want him to think that he's married the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. But being in that dress, I feel it'll probably work! <3
