I’m torn. I have had my heart set on a tea length gown since I started seriously thinking about it, and I know I want a corset back to achieve the best fit and not have to worry about going up or down 5 lbs and ruining the appearance. I can only find one such dress, and it’s from an online retailer based in China (PlatoBridal), and the particular dress doesn’t have any reviews. There’s also essentially no real return policy unless they mess up. Here’s my beauty, for reference. The alternative would be to give up on my tea-length idea and just buy a full length corset back dress, they seem to be easier to find.
Have any brides purchased anything from PlatoBridal.com before? How about general online purchasing experiences? Or does anyone know of any other tea-length corset-back dresses? Also, I know this is a wild idea, but has anyone ever purchased a ballgown and taken a chunk off the bottom? I’m considering that alternative, but don’t know how much it would cost. I know shortening from the middle (leaving the hem intact) is very expensive, but I would just be looking to cut like 1.5 ft right off the hem. Any thoughts?
