So I was at a fitting at David’s bridal a few weeks ago and they fitted me into a size 12, and a size 14 for corset dress.
Now I found a dress on their website that they don’t have in the stores, and it is only available in a size 10 but it is really the dress that I want and it has a corset back.
Will it look awful in the lacing seeing it is probably at least one dress size too small?
In street clothes I am a size 8-10 but I guess bridal dresses run small? Because I normally wear a size M. And size 12/14 is huge, but they did fit me into other size 14 dresses that were way too big so I guess I am a size 12 in Davids bridal.
Will a corset dress size 10 look way too weird in the corset lacing when one dress size too small?

Corset dresses are made to fit different sizes. I think that you should go try on a size 10 corset at David’s bridal to see if it looks good and then if you do like it, buy the dress.

I think that yes, anything too small will not look good and will not be comfortable either. Sometimes wearing clothes that are too small can make a person look bigger from what I’ve observed.

Corset dresses are amazing because you can adjust the size, for the most part. You can do what I did, the dress should have a fabric panel that goes underneath the corset part so your skin isn’t exposed. Those panels are easy to pop the stitching off of and you can move the panel over, that’s what I did with my dress because I unfortunately gained a bit of weight before our wedding.

I wanted a corset so badly as well. I’m an 8/10 as well and they had me try on 14 at DB’s because of my chest. The sales lady grabbed half the dress back to fit my waste.
Corsets are flattering and can be let out to allow for more room more so than other dresses. Can you order it, or is it off the rack?

Just remember a dress that is too small on you wont look the same as it does on the model
You dont want to have gaps throughout the corsett. Yes there is wiggle room with a corsett back, but you dont want it to look like you are clearly wearing a dress that is too small

If you order a dress online from Davids you can return it. I would get it and try it on, if it doesn’t work return it.
