My dress is too big, and the corset closes almost all the way. I’m considering removing part of the corset (changing the bottom half into a zipper) or removing the whole thing if I can lose enough weight to get the top to close all the way.
Has anyone done this? I would love to see some before and after pics of corsets that were changed into zippers or partial zippers.
Thanks in advance!!

@cestvrai: Some corsets are designed to close all the way when they fit properly, so there’s that. But if you would prefer a half zipper, go for it!
I think closed (or almost closed) corsets make for a better fit than zippers, generally speaking, but it’s definitely possible to convert it to a zipper if that’s the style you’d prefer!
Ask your seamstress and she what she thinks, though!

Thanks for the input! My seamstress seemed to think it would be fine to change it to a zipper. I am a little concerned about how it would affect the fit though, like you mentioned.
Still would love to see any before and after pics of girls who had corsets changed to zippers!!
