I need a little bit of advice ladies:
I’ve bought my dress online for a very low price, tried it on and it fit perfectly (a friend took measurements for me). The only thing is, it has a zip closure – I’m worried if I lose (or put on) weight before the big day that it wont fit, or will slip down.
Should I re-order it in a corset back so it can be tightened/loosened? I also love the visual impact of a corset back – so romantic!
The cost of doing so really wont worry me – I could buy five of these dresses for the price of one in the nearest bridal salon.
Also I’ve never seen a dress like this one anywhere on the boards, so I’ve never seen a simple sheath chiffon dress bustled… can anyone show me what a chiffon dress bustled looks like? (mine has a sweep train plus the ribbons, so I really can’t picture what it will look like!)

When ordering online i would think it is best to go with the corset back just so you have a bit of give take, but since you already recieved your dress and it fits perfect i wouldnt order it again – as long as your happy with it and dont intend on your weight fluctuating too much.
Im actually considering getting my dress online too, but am not sure about the quality – where you happy with your beading and stiching?

@Miss G: the beading, stitching and workmanship of my gown was AMAZING! Honestly, I think its almost as if these places make the dresses for the stores, and then the stores mark them up in price!
Definitely give these guys a go: http://www.inweddingdress.com
The only thing is you have to know what suits you.

maybe take it somewhere to see if they can put a corset in it… if not i would keep it, it looks great the way it is

Wow Love that dress! Thats exaclty the kind of style I’ve been looking for, for my destination wedding! What style is that?
I’ve heard its quite easy to get a corset back put in, I’d check that out before ordering another. Their dresses are cheap but it might be easier and cheaper still to get it alter at home 🙂

Oh that dress is gorgeous! I think having a corset back would be a good thing whether you order another or have it put in by a seamstress. Although if you buy another one you may be able to sell the one you have now.

@Miss Cappuccino: do you have a pic of the actual dress?
