    The corset is too close together. Alter the side seams to pull it open wider. : (57 votes)

    The corset is too close together. It should be between 4-6 inches apart at the top. It is your preference, but think of it this way. The corset is supposed to “Work”, not look “pretty”. Corsets are designed to help shape the body into an hour glass shape. Yours is not “working” for you. The wider the corset, the more “work” it is doing, like a shoe lace on a shoe. The wider the laces, the tigher the shoe can get on your foot. Its the same with the dress.

    Plus when you lace it up completely the way it is, it will look like a braided rope on the bottom and cause the dress to ripple/stick out funny in most cases.

    Talk to your seamstress again. they can pin and lace it for you until it is how you like it, but make sure they lace it all the way down so you can see how it will look the day of.

    hope this helps

    I think it’s just what you prefer. Some people like the look of reaslly wide corsets and others would rather have a little sliver. Here’s the back of my gown:)

    I like the more open corsets on a heavier looking dress. I think because your dress is so delicate, it would look better the way it is. You are rocking that dress as is!
