First off, let me start by saying, I know I’m difficult! Lol.
I’m trying to find bridesmaid dresses with the following criteria:
- has to be long
- has to have a corset
- no ruffles, no lace, no bows, no flowers
- beaking and rhinestones okay
- sweetheart neckline
- no assymetry at the waist.. some fear it will make one side look bigger than the other.
- purple or teal
- with or without a train
- trumpet, fit and flare, or mermaid would be nice.
I haven’t found one dress that meets all those criteria just yet.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

This one is long, slight train, fit ‘n flare, corsett back, no frills, no a-symmetry – everything but the neckline matches up.
The dress is only $80, for that price they can get it altered to include the sweatheart neckline.
ETA: Sorry about the BAM! I was excited. lol!

@kir1011: I would look on prom dress websites where you can filter by:corset, sweetheart, color etc.

I imagine the corset part would make finding this dress hard, but all you have to do is ask to have a corest back put in to it.

I’m not too confident in getting them made because I’m afraid they will all look different.
I haven’t thought about changing a zipper back to a corset back. Do you know how much that costs (approximate)?
I haven’t read too many good reviews about ordering from China… so I’m apprehensive about that route.
Is Etsy like Darling Husband gate or Ali Express where the dresses are replicas or knockoffs?

@kir1011: Getting them made by a seamstress will not make them look different. Seamstresses use patterns, the same as big-box retailers do.
Dresses on Etsy might be replicas, or they might be original designs. Etsy is a website where independent crafters can sell their products. You support small businesses when you buy items from Etsy.
