Go to a tailor?

Idk but I wouldn’t think there is much you can do with the flimsy fabric of  that bodice. It appears to be completely  see-through, so anything  you did would show . (As would  a bra.)     I think a corset back is for a different sort of fabric.  

ETA I see you say the illusion part fits but if you cant zip  past the waist , are you sure of that?

I think altering it would be a lot of work because you’d have to change the whole waistline and top of skirt.

I would scrap the dress and look for something that fits, TBH.

I think you can completely remove the waistband and rework it since the waistband looks like it has several layers of fabric. This depends on the skill of the tailor. However, I would just get a new dress and suck up the $35 you paid for this one, as anything a tailor will do will probably cost more than it is worth. Whenever you buy a dress that can’t be tried on, ask for all of the measurements – bust, waist, length from shoulder to waistband, and length of skirt.
