With each fitting, our lucky bride-to-be is getting closer to her dream dress. Last time we caught up with her, Lauren had designed her dress with Phillipa Lepley herself and had undergone a rigorous measuring session. Next up on the couture agenda: the corset.

MEASURING UP

One of the many reasons Phillipa Lepley's designs are so adored by brides is not only the detail and care that goes into each and every one of her gowns (as we are seeing firsthand), but also her hidden corsetry that can cinch you in perfectly.

That perfection doesn't come easily though, as Lauren discovered...

During the corset fitting, which lasted an hour, Lauren and Lepley's team determined the neckline and back neckline of her gown - all designs and heights considered with the detailing, buttons and final look of the gown in mind. 

LET THE COUTURE PROCESS BEGIN

Another important decision taken at this stage: padding. "For those who are not blessed in the breast department, this is completely brilliant," explains Lauren.

"All in all, it's been completely amazing. I still cannot believe how lucky I am.  The whole experience so far as been beyond my wildest expectations and I cannot wait to see how the dress unfolds!"

Neither can we!
