Adding a corset is going to change the size pretty dramatically; you will have to not only pay to have the corset added, but you’ll have to have the dress taken in so that there is some distance between the lacing.  I like it as-is.

Oh no! It’s so pretty and delicate; I would not change it to a lace-up back. I don’t think it would look right at all. If it’s squeezing your back in a weird place, see if your seamstress can let it out a tiny bit at the top.

I’m not sure what the cost would be, but some brides make the back a deeper v. This way it won’t hit around your shoulder blades and will show your back for what it is; lean and sexy.

I think you should keep the dress as is.. it’s lovely!  So long as the bust area isn’t too tight, you won’t have to worry about any back muffin tops ๐Ÿ™‚

Would you be willing to share any photos of yourself in the dress? It might make our decision easier.

Making changes to a dress like that would be costly, I think. Any time there is heavy bead work to be done, they charge an arm and a leg.

@hanulies:  Seriously- your back fat is not bad at all! I would not have noticed it if you hadnt pointed it. But if its really bothering you, what about a veil? That will give you coverage?

Also, you look gorgeous in your dress ๐Ÿ™‚

I vote finding a good seamstress too!  I thought my only option would be to alter my dress into a lace up to get it to fit…nope seamstress was able to give me plenty of room…actually she’s now taking some back ๐Ÿ™‚  But just getting a little alteration when you feel uncomfortable will make a world of difference.  No need to change the whole dress…it’s gorgeous!

I changed my dress from a zipper to a corset and it was the best thing I could have possibly done because I was so much happier and more comfortable on my wedding day. I vote to do what will make you happy and feel the best!

I have a few photos from before and after…

That last photo was my drunk mom attempting to tie me up lol. She did fix the ribbon and modesty panel to be flat once she got it all laced up hahahaha. I just don’t really have any photos of the back besides these that aren’t from far away. Because of all the beading the corset was done straight instead of in a V to keep it symmetrical as possible.
