Hi, i went for alterations today and am a bit bummed – my dressmaker wasn’t too impressed with the structure of my dress because of its lack of support up top – it’s a strapless lace mermaid with boning only to the bustline and a slightly v shaped dip at the back. My seamstress is going to add boning to the waist but i’m worried that i’m going to have to keep pulling my dress up all night. I guess what i’m wanting to know is did anyone else have a strapless similar and did the addition of boning help a great deal?
I’m clueless when it comes to dresses so just picked the one i liked – i didn’t notice any problem with the one i tried on in the store because it was a size too small and fit great up top but slightly too snug on the hips:( so i had to go the bigger, slightly heavier i guess dress.
