So I finally got my dress in (alfred angelo #869)…when I ordered it, I tried on the store sample, which had a zippered back. Due to the fact that all of my bridesmaids, my mother, and my future mother in law were in love with the idea of a corset back, I ordered my dress with that feature. I do like the look of the corset back (would have prefered buttons, but that’s not an option at AA), but I HATE the ribbon it comes with. Its huge and bulky and looks terrible on me. I tried to get the least bulky dress I could find, since pretty much anything overwhelms my frame and I feel like this ribbon looks out of place. Has anyone had any experience with replacing the ribbon on a corset back dress? I’m worried that if I buy a slimmer ribbon, it won’t perform its duty of holding me in. Any advice?
