- Wedding: May 2012
i was never a huge fan of corset backs but i think my seamstress just talked me into one. i heard that it gives you more of an hourglass shape and that it’s better if you think you will lose or gain a few pounds close to the wedding date.
my current measurements are:
as you can see, i don’t have much of defined waist and I heard that a corset can pull my waist in a few inches and give me the illusion of an hourglass. i also plan on losing a few more pounds in the next two months. i see how terrible an ill-fitting dress looked when i put on a dress that i purchased last year and the hips are now over 6 inches too big.
does anyone have pictures showing the shape difference in a zip back and a corset back wedding dress?
the price for the corset back would be able the same as altering the sides of the gown. the most expensive alteration is hemming up the silk organza swirls.
