Ouch, I’m not a professional when it comes to dresses, but that just seems so painful.  Are you okay with it being that tight?

Mine’s kind of the same deal — zips up the back and a corset inside.  And, it does take one or two other people to get me into it.  I don’t think it’s uber-comfy when it’s on, but it was a custom-made dress, and the dressmaker was there for all my fittings, and showed another person how to pull it together and get it zipped.

I guess that’s just how some of them are supposed to fit!

@lil- it sounds like it will work just fine for you… As long as you know yourself and won’t feel claustrophobic, I think you’ll be fine.  My sister’s fit like that and she did fine all night.  I kept checking on her, but she had no problems.

For me, there were a couple of dresses I put on that were so uncomfortable that I wanted to pull a Carrie Bradshaw and rip it off and run out of the store. But, I know this about myself, and as a consequence I picked an exceedingly free flowing dress.  It’s way too big for me right now, but when I get it tailored, you can bet I’ll include a little wiggle room (but not too much!).

My gown fits fairly snugly, but like you I can still breathe and feel comfortable in it. I don’t like strapless gown that don’t fit properly in the bust, as I think they make it look like you’re wearing an armored breastplate that isn’t attached to your body properly.

I say if you’re comfortable and you’re not straining/damaging the dress by wearing it so tightly, go for it!

Do you have a picture you could share?
