Ok, my dress is great, but it’s not as fitted as I had hoped in the top. My second fitting is tomorrow and I am considering asking them to corset the back. My family thinks I am going to ruin the dress, if it can even be done. But I worried if I don’t corset, it will be to big, as my weight has been fluctuating!!!
Any opinions?? I am a 22, but I dont have the picks of me in the dress, it’s much higher in the back on me then the model.

I really like that dress the way it is. Do you know what is causing your weight fluctuations? I would ask the seamstress if she can do alterations near your wedding if needed.

personally, i love the back and would leave it as is, and trust your seamstress to make the dress fit you. also, your wedding date is pretty close already, so i’d be really hesitant to start ripping up the back of the dress at this point.

I seriously think it’s stress!! My biggest concern is the dress will be too big and alterations woman wont take it in more for concern it will be to snug. As far as last minute alterations, I have no idea!! Hopefully I will know more tomorrow! I have to travel to get there, so it’s not as easy as popping in for a fitting, but worth it.
Thank you for your input!! (=

I have to agree with the PP and say leave it as it is. It’s a beautiful dress, you will look amazing it in, and the seamstress will handle the rest.

With the beading and the low back, I can’t see them being able to make that into a corset…plus it looks great the way it is, but I guess it can’t hurt to consult a seamstress…very pretty!

It’s unlikely that a corset would work for this dress. In order to have enough space to make it work they would have to go down into the pleating and I just think that will ruin the whole structure of the dress. I agree you should ask the seamstress what is the last possible day you can see her before the wedding to make sure the fit is right.

I would leave the back as is on the dress. I think it is beautiful. A corset would look misplaced with that style in my opinion.

Ahhh don’t mess with the design of this Lazaro dress!!! Haha sorry for my reaction but I tried on this dress this weekend and think it may be the one so I am a little protective of it =)
This dress, to me anyway, has a very modern feel to it. A corset is incongruous with the style because corsets are the opposite of modern (I also love corsets and may even get a dress with a corset if I don’t get this dress, so its not me being biased against corsets).
Have a great wedding day!!!

EEeeek, please don’t put a corset back on this beautiful Lazaro dress! It’s gorgeous the way it is, and I think a corset back would cheapen the look of the dress.
If your weight is fluctuating just try and schedule an alteration as close to the wedding as you can 🙂

Maybe there is a compromise here. Could she build a corset into the inside? That way the dress wouldn’t be changed but you’d have the corset hidden underneath it. It would be attached to the dress so it would still hold it up. Basically you’d get all the benefits of the corset without changing the look of the dress at all. It’s worth asking at least if you’re still considering this.
