Dianna DiNoble, Starkers Corsetry
Tired of trying on endless gowns that aren’t exactly what you want? Frustrated about spending hundreds of extra dollars on alterations? Our bridal corsetry is custom made to your exact design specifications and measurements, so you can be sure that you are getting exactly what you want for your special day.
Our corsets are adjustable and can fit approximately a 10-pound weight fluctuation either way.
Whether you are looking for a beautiful one-of-a-kind wedding ensemble or an intimate foundation garment, we will create a corset that will reflect your unique style for your special day. We have a variety of bridal fabrics as well as many historical and modern designs to draw from to suit your needs.
If you can’t come to the studio, we can do everything through phone, email, and online.
All of our corsets gowns are two-piece for maximum flexibility but go together virtually seamlessly because the corsets and clothing use the same fabric. This also makes it very easy to wear either piece for other occasions if you wish.
A custom corset is also a perfect foundation garment for under an off-the-rack gown, giving beautiful waist and hip shaping, and excellent bust support. Add some garters and it can double as sexy honeymoon lingerie!
Prices for fully bespoke corset gowns range from $2500 CAD and up, including mock-ups and adjustments!
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
We provide a unique experience for brides, creating the gown of their dreams without compromising on fit or details. Everything is made to measure.
“I’ve been inspired by a dress I saw on Dianna’s website for years. When my wedding came up, it was the perfect chance to have my dream dress made. I reached out to her and found she was easy to work with, and understood where I wanted to go. Trying to make stained glass come to life in a dress is rather abstract, but she went with the idea and made my vision come to life. I didn’t know how long distance dress making would work, but I sent in my measurements, got a mock-up to test out and mail back, and ended up with a dress that costs the same as an average wedding dress, but this one is perfectly fitted and looks way better than anything I’ve seen elsewhere. I’ve tried cheap corsets, and more expensive corsets, and “fit” is very tricky and important. Her’s fit just as a corset should, like a hug. For the wedding I was walking up and down gravel hillsides and dancing for hours and the corset top was comfortable (and secure) and the length of the skirt was just the right length so that I didn’t worry about tripping. Best thing about a corset dress? You can still wear the corset as a top after the wedding.” - Maia O
