    What would you do with the button detail if you replaced it with a corset? I love the dress as is and I think if you are worried about it not fitting on your day, there are other ways of making sure that it does instead of completely changing the dress. I’d be afraid that it would ruin the dress.

    In my opinion the zip and buttons look is much nicer and more modern, plus corset dresses only look good if the person who laces you up does it tight enough in the right places, but with a zipper you dont have to worry about that

    I have this dress and wanted a corset, I ordered it from the shop with a corset (meaning casablanca actually did the alteration) and it’s perfect.

    i’ve heard of something where they can do a short corset (like, to the waistline, or in your case, to the edge of the detail) with a zipper continuing underneath (so there’s still a long split to make getting it on and off easier)…would something like that work?

    Are you willing to sell your dress? I think it is the most beautiful dress, but I cannot afford to purchase a brand new one. 

    Thank you so much for your help

    I prefer the zipper.  It looks cleaner.

    I think it looks better without the corset, but I can understand you want the best fit on your wedding day. I think either way, in the end, will be fine.

    What did you end up doing?  If you did the corset, please let me know how it turned out as I just did the same to an 1876 and am very curious as to how it might turn out.
