I had a corset dress, and it was HEAVY so yes there was boning in it. Sorry, I don’t think I’m much help. You should take it to a good tailor and ask them.

The corset keeps it tight, and in place perfectly with boning… boning keeps your chest up, lifted and acts together with corest to give support. If you arent large chested, boning isnt as necessary…. it always comes in handy when you want a flatter belly. You will usually find boning in heavier gowns as well because it acts as more support,

If you have a flat stomach and smaller chest, I would get rid of it soooo quickly. Boning annoys the heck out of me in normal clothing, so having it in my dress would make my skin crawl lol. It’s so uncomfortable. To be sure, consult a seamstress. I don’t think it will impact your dress too much.
