I would just be carefule when you lace it to not do it too tight. I also have a corset back on my dress and during my fittings my seamstress was careful and warned me that overlacing to try to get the middle tighter would create some more spillage on top… so she sewed in a little elastic belt inside the dress in the waist area (that way I could cinch it without pulling too tightly on the corset) and voila no back cleavage!

This may sound a little strange in writing, but once you have the dress on and tightened, have one of your bridesmaids basically smooth out your back by placing a her hands (or fingers) into your dress at the middle of your back, where the top of the dress is, and then pushing your skin outwards toward your arms.  This distributes the skin back to where it was (and is supposed to be!) before you gathered it all into one place.  Sounds a bit crude – but it helps!

Back cleavage means your dress is laced too tight. The weight of the dress should be carried on the hips, as in, there should be enough structure around the waist and hips to keep the dress up regardless of how tight the top is laced. So just make sure you’re laced up properly on the lower section, and keep the top loose enough to avoid back cleavage. (also helps avoid armpit fat spilling over the top)

Ditto jcabc. That’s how the people at the bridal shop fixed mine when I was trying dresses on.
