I can’t comment on putting a corset in as I’m not sure how that would change the shape / look of the back of the dress.

I like the ribbon on the dress but I don’t like the bow at the back so only imo, I’d go for something smaller.

Beautiful dress 🙂

@mimimargarita:  That is a beautiful dress!  Is it a Casablanca?

I would bustle, just so the train is not getting stepped on, etc.  A wrist strap seems like sort of a hassle to carry around, but that’s just me.  I like the corset idea, since they do give leeway for sizing and can create such a nice shape. If you are going with the ribbon, I say to have it sewn in.

Wow, what a beautiful dress! Looks absolutely stunning on you!

I think your dress would work okay with a corset back..  I’d get the opinion of the dressmaker or the sales girls.. they might have seen someone do it before.

I think the ribbon looks great but my preference would be to have it sewn in as the bodice of the dress is such a lovely tight fitting contrast to the skirt.. I think a bow at the back might detract from this.

I’d presume a bustle would leave you more comfortable and carefree at your reception, and I think it’ll look great!
