Hi Bees! I am needing to alter my wedding dress from a zipper back to a corset back. I’m doing this because my dress is too small around my chest area, and I don’t want to look like I’m popping out. I was wondering if any of you either have before and after pics of your dress going from zipper to corset, or even just the after pics so that I may get an idea of what mine may look like. Also, what did you end up paying for having that alteration done? Just so I can get a price range.
Thanks so much ladies!! <3

I ordered mine with a corset back, because the fit is so much better…whether you lose a few pounds or gain it will still look great. And the other dresses did not stay up and keep my boobs covered like the corsetted backed dresses did, they tended to slip lower down with movement. My cost was factored in from the designer, but I’d bet it cost 300.00 dollars or so.

The shop where my daughter ordered her Allure Couture gown, charged $250 plus sales tax, to get a corset back. Since we later discovered they charged us 25% over the MSRP, on just the gown, I don’t know if the $250 was similarly inflated, or not. (It is being made with a corset, not a zipper being removed and replaced with a corset).

I had mine changed with the designer. $250 was the charge that they said was a charge directly from the designer to make the change.
