Ok so I did a POST a few weeks back abotu my dress dilema. Long story short, the original dress is a no go and the new dress had to be ordered super rush and in a size 10 instead of a size 12 (explanation is in the post). I just received an email from david’s bridal saying that the dress is in. I haven’t been able to work out because of my invitations (also a long story) & am just kicking it into gear. I’m going to try and ask if they can make a corset closure, instead of the zipped closure taht it has, becasue I’m too afraid that they won’t be able to take out the dress enough. I was wondering if any david’s bridal brides out there has done and how much did it cost?
Because of this whole predicament, I’m sooo excited but nervous at the same time. Like I need more time, they originally gave me June 8th as the time it would come in. It’s awesome that it came in so fast, but I feel like I got gypped or something, my time is up.

If you did the conversion from a zippered closure to a corset closure how much did it cost you?

Do you have to pick up the dress if you go in, or can you leave it there? Looks like you’re cutting it close for alterations as well so you’ll need to get it worked on soon. May be best to pick it up, or get them started on alterations if they need to.
I had a June delivery date as well, and I found out my dress came in like 2 weeks ago. I was so not prepared, nor had I been working out very much. Somehow I lost a lot more inches than I knew cause the scale said about the same as it has been reading! Maybe you’ve dropped some cause of the stress and not known?
Mine is a corset back, but I was still worried that my bottom half would need the panel extended because when they took my hip measurements it was dancing on the line of a 12 and 10 and I went for the 10.
Anyhow – I was very surprised when I went in – they had to close the corset all the way up!
The point – I guess – is that I think you should go and try it on, find out how it fits you (looking at pics from the other post, if that’s a 10 you look great in it!) then make the decision regarding the back. You may not have to change it all.

Thanks I though it looked great too but it was a 12, so that’s why I’m a little worried about a 10 fitting me.
I’m already going to have to leave it ther for bustling and they did say that they would comp. me the alterations because they only had that size for rush in my length, but I’m not sure if the corset backing would qualify.
