You could ask a seamstress if it’s possible. The main issue with removing the boning is “what will hold the dress up?”

From the photo – you don’t look too “breast plate-like” – looks like a regular strapless dress to me.

I’d personally keep the dress as-is to avoid any unanticipated problems from messing with the structure of the gown (kind of like removing a load bearing wall from a house!). Or keep looking! You’ve got time and there’s tons of dresses out there (and more being designed every day!).

it probably NEEDS the boning. That dress looks heavily structured. You definitely don’t look like you have a big plate strapped on! The dress would probably sag and stretch at the waist if it didn’t have the structure in there, holding up what looks to be like a heavy skirt!

Also, talk to the designer of the dress–or the shop, whatever. A lot of places can do some sort of customization for a fee.

to me, it looks like the dress in the first picture has the same level of structure in the bodice – it just is a little smaller / skirt starts higher.  I agree w/ the other posters to say leave it in there b/c the dress probably needs it! very lovely dress by the way 🙂

I don’t know anything about sewing and dresses, but is it possible to remove some but not all of the boning?  A good seamstress should be able to answer these types of questions for you though.  By The Way, you look freaking awesome!! So no matter what you end up doing, it looks fab!
