Hi Everyone, this is my first post but I have read loads on here oer the last few weeks.
I have narrowed my dress choices down to Blue by Enzoani Dabra or a Mark Lesley dress that was called ‘Elsa’ in the store, but I think may be 7071 (but without the lace strap). Both are gorgeous, I think Dabra is my favourite but I’m being swung by the fact that the Mark Lesley is corset back, which I love.
Does anyone know if it is possible to get Dabra with a corset back – I can’t find many pics, or if it is possible to have dresses converted to corset back?

I have the Dabra and had it altered into a corset back by a bridal alteration service (not the salon or Enzoani). I’ll try to find a good picture. I definitely don’t regret it at all…..I did it not for the look of the corset (I prefer buttons actually) but for the stress reduction of knowing that the dress would fit regardless if I lost/gained a few pounds. If I could do it again, I would still do the corset back but lower the back a little bit (this prevents “back fat” muffin top).

Thats lovely 🙂 I must admit the allowance for weight fluctuations is a big pull for me with the corset back as I am in the process of losing weight at the moment in time for the big day next year and I’d hate to not fit in my dress!
Do you mind me asking how much it cost to alter?

koneko84: It was about 250 to do the corset and another 150 for the hemming (and I also shortened the train to be a sweep instead of having a bustle made).
