    That dress looks amazing on you. I think it is beautiful as is. Honestly I would leave it as is.

    I really love the dress on you, but I think the back is just begging for a corset.  πŸ™‚  I could be biased (my dress has a corset too!) but I think it would definitely just give it a little extra.

    First of all you are NOT fat!, the dress looks beautiful on you πŸ™‚ But I understand envisioning something a certian way, and the real deal not livng up! With that being said… I think a corset would look amazing on this dress!

    Turn it into a V!  It really fixes the back.  I changed mine, and it made a world of difference.  I would suggest bringing the V down to the crystal part (if that makes sense)

    I would change it into a V and add buttons.

    I think it looks great! 


    I don’t think it needs any changes, but if you do anything, I’d go for the v.  The corset would require removal of a lot of the embellishment/beading on the back…a good amount to get the loops attached.  I wouldn’t want to mess with all that bling.  It’s so pretty. πŸ™‚

    I’d ask a seamstress abou the V … the corset would be great, but like pp said, “all that bling!!”  I have seen some Maggie’s with bling and corset, though, so it’s possible!  I had a straight across back and we let it out and left it alone.  I hate my wedding pics from the back!! (I wanted to do the V on mine)
