Any ladies out there got any tips for sitting down with a tight corset style dress? I’m scared I’m going to rip mine when i try sitting down. And when i DO sit, the boning digs into my under arms and make me look super flabby! And i’m NOT! HELP!

sua2walt: I had a corset dress and I just had to move around to sit down and move around until I found a way to sit comfortably as I was trying to make sure my bustle woukdn’t be in the way. I ended up taking out the boning in my dress (big mistake) as I was trying to make the dress make me look less pointy in the bust area (which I ended up getting a good bra and it make it look 10 times better!). To be honest, no ones gonna be looking at your arms when you are sitting (assuming you are talking about sitting through dinner). People were more focused on eating their dinner and only paid attention to the speaches and were looking at the person who is speaking. I don’t really have any tips for you to make yourself look better (because a lot of times its a personal thing that one feels about their body) but as for the digging in, maybe you can talk to your seamstress about what you might be able to use to prevent that from happening. Have you finished alterations yet? Maybe there is some sort of padding/extra material they can put over the areas of the boning thats digging in. Goodd luck, Hope all works out!

I was having the same problem with my corset, so I had my tailor completely remove all of the boning. It was SO much better afterwards. They said they could also remove the boning that started from my chest down to my stomach, but I had them remove everything. With the corset being so tight, I didn’t even need the boning. However, night of, I did need to hike up my dress a bit to sit comfortably since it was form fitting through the waist.
