Check out this video for some style ideas on 2 piece, midi, satin, and classy corset dresses in a variety of colors. Plus, what occasions you should wear them and how you can style them.
🤔 Why take it from me? 🤔
Corset dresses are SO stylish, flattering, and feminine! I own more than I can fit on a 1 minute video and I’m always in the market for one more! 👗🛒
🧪🤓How did I test these? 🤓🧪
For the purposes of this collection and styling video, I chose not to wear a brassiere, shape wear, or pantyhose. I paired this with normal cotton VS panties to detective potential panty lines instead of my go-to seamless blend. 🕵🏻♀️. Typically, I wear the black corset top with a strapless bra and rhinestone bling straps to intentionally sprinkle in some glamour and added support.

5/5 👗👗👗👗👗 gone forever?! 😭
🏷🤑 Price: $18 top + skirt (belt included)
📏 Length: Midi, hits above the knee
🗝 Is it comfortable to move around in?
😂 “Beauty is pain.” This features a pencil skirt. GOOD LUCK! It’ll leave you with ugly lines on your legs where the ruching elastic is. You can try pairing it with a different bottom, that’s the beauty of having 2 pieces and merging them into a single dress illusion.
🪞 Versatile? YES! This two piece corset dress is classy, sophisticated and I’ve worn it many times both professionally and socially. I wore it a Motorola MotoArcade Facebook Launch Party event in SoHo and got so many compliments. I wore it at ShowcaseLive! Patriot’s Place Gillette Stadium to manage an FX Teen Night “Little Black Dress Party theme” and everyone thought it was a solid piece. I’ve also worn each of the 2 articles with other tops and bottoms for the ultimate capsule wardrobe staple.
ℹ️ 2Cute [was?] a retailer in Massapequa, NY’s Westfield Sunrise Mall. They also had an online store but it seems like they don’t have a presence online or in person anymore. I bought another all-in-one studded bodice dress from them that I got so much use of as a teen and now can only wear as a tunic top. Thanks, adulthood! They specialized in unique stylish finds at extremely affordable prices.

GUESS Women's Dancer Dress
5/5 👗👗👗👗👗 retired style #bringthisback
🏷🤑 Price: $50 because I had a special occasion and needed it, then the 2nd color I bought on sale during Black Friday for $19.99 🙌
📏 Length: Midi, hits above the knee
🗝 Is it comfortable to move around in?
EXTREMELY! Don’t be fooled by the structured boning. GUESS makes QUALITY clothing, and “you get what you pay for.” Unless you’re Lexi, and you wait for ultra sales because style is personal, and timeless and when “bodice and bustier” dress trends were on the decline, I inadvertently planned in advance for this hot trend of satin, lace, classy corset dresses to make a rightful comeback 🥳
🪞 Versatility: Ultimate flexibility for multiple occasions!! This elegant lace corset dress comes in 3 colors, pink, red, and black. I’ve worn the pink with pink pearls to attend bridal showers, brunch, and for numerous effortless vintage pin-up lingerie photoshoots. The black I’ve paired with red heels and a red Bebe trench coat for Carmen Sandiego CosPlay and salsa dancing. 💃🏻
ℹ️ GUESS was formed in 1981 by the Marciano brothers who left France to pursue “the American Dream.” Bloomingdale’s was the first big-box retailer that placed an order which sold out instantly. I personally love the brand because they have always featured real women’s bodies. Hips and curves, hourglass feminine silhouettes and models. The brand has aspirational fashion that actually fits! They go a little overboard on denim but it’s what they specialize in so I can’t fault them for that.

Faux-Leather Bustier Dress
3/5 👗👗👗 inconsistent batches
🏷🤑 Price: $19.60, I think it was originally $29.99 but Macy’s had a great Thanksgiving 🦃 game that gave away gift cards 🎁
📏 Length: short, mini, club dress
🗝 Comfort? 🤣
Ya got jokes! Plan on pulling this down constantly and “sucking it in” for selfies.
🪞 Versatile? Worn for occasion? Not really. I’ve worn this for a few liquor tastings if the product was a spirit usually served at bottle service VIP sections, hibachi teppanyaki dinner dates, casino bachelorette parties, and nightclubs but the pleather leaves much to be desired for daytime adventures.
ℹ️ Material Girl is named after a famous Madonna song and the clothing line is a collaboration with her daughter Lola. It’s been sold and featured at Macy’s and now has plans for a Target collaboration by the looks of their Instagram and Pinterest page.

Cream lace overlay corset dress
5/5 👗👗👗👗👗 come back soon!
🏷🤑 Price: $20, it could have been more, this was a grief purchase when my Grandmother passed away so my A’GACI haul is a bit of a blur
📏 Length: Midi, with slits on either side in the front that exposes the upper legs 🦵🏻
🪞 Versatile? Nope, but that’s what makes it an ultra sexy, celebration corset dress. I wore this for my 29th birthday and I had an awful migraine that night and had to change my dinner reservation to a dimly lit restaurant where I discovered one of Florida’s hidden tourist gems; Corky the Bathtub!
ℹ️ A’GACI is a staple in American shopping malls and used to have an online presence. I think they hit some financial turmoil but seem to be restructuring and will come back soon. (Hopefully with the same large variety of casual and sexy clothing we know and love!)

$85?!?!! That’s ridiculous! Would you believe me if I told you this was the most 2nd expensive item in this video? (try to guess what the most expensive is below)
Mine was on sale years ago, always price-compare when shopping for Melissa & Doug or other children’s toys. Brands know that parents are willing pay more for products because we only want the best for our kids. :1-star-struck:

lighter, therefore more portable, that’s the only benefit to plastic, IMHO
perfect for a #[Target](748) Run

(Or am I just salty AF that even as a Red Card Holder, I have not been able to secure one *YET* because JAKKS Pacific can’t crank them out fast enough for Target to keep them restocked? Bullseye! 🎯) :1-grinning-face-with-sweat:

💭🧐 Final Thoughts 🧐💭
Some of these I have owned since 2014, based on my e-mail receipts, others, even earlier!! It’s safe to say that it’s worth going with a more quality gown which ends up being less expensive in the long run. The Material Girl dresses are just too delicate for normal wear and tear. I hate when a dress or swimsuit padding gets loose and curls up or WORSE, lost in the laundry! GUESS Dancer dress is the best corset dress that I *currently* own.
Frequently Asked Questions, at your service!
❔❓ How do you make a mini corset dress? ❓❔
😜 I prefer a no-sew option of mixing and matching your favorite corset with a variety of skirts. Restroom trips are much less complex, too!
❓❔How do you put a corset dress on by yourself? ❔❓
1. Find options that have zippers with clasp closures.
2. Step in to the gown and carefully pull up over your hips. Others may require you place over your head. (YMMV)
3. Secure the clasp from behind your back.
4. Pull the base of the zipper down with one hand as you zip upwards with your dominant hand.
5. This doesn’t exclude you from traditional lace-up corsets, in fact, CorsetStory sells several costume corsets (I LOVE them for Pirate and Steampunk costumes), that have hidden zippers on the side.
❔❓ Can you make a dress from a corset? ❓❔
:4-woman-raising-hand::0-money-with-wings::0-money-bag: YES! See my tutorial and tips above! 🥰 OR you can add fabric skirting around an *existing* corset if you have the materials (sewing kit or sewing machine, fabric, lining, closures, decorative embroidered patches) and skill set. I have shopping for deals skills instead. 😅
❓❔How do you tie a corset dress? ❔❓
:4-woman-raising-hand: Similar to sneakers or as some call them tennis shoes, use a criss-cross weaving pattern with satin ribbon. Leave enough wiggle room so that you can slide into it, then tighten each X section and tie a standard bow. I usually tuck it in if pairing with a separate bottom unless the midriff gap is too large, then I make a cuter bow and leave it exposed.
❔❓How can I make my corset dress bigger? ❓❔
:4-woman-raising-hand: Most traditional lace up corsets allow for flexible sizing due to an added panel of fabric that overlaps as well as adjustable lacing. Simply loosen each X, or re-thread the ribbon to achieve your desired fit. For a simpler method that can grow and age with you, try a smocked back like the one pictured above.
