a corset may be possible but how much more are you willing to pay for alterations?

In my oppinion if your going authentic edwardian and if your comfortable wearing the corset go for it! It’ll help the dress look how its supose to, but id suggest wearing it a little before under your normal cloths to get your body use to it. Id also suggest getting a real one ordered form the uk thats make the the metal boning. It’s just not the same when its made with the hard plastic boning, cus it bends out of shape so easily! And yes lets see some pics!!

I’d definitely go for a corset and, if possible, find a corsetiere who can make an authentic Edwardian-style corset with steel boning. Ideally, have one made-to-measure rather than buying off-the-rack, they’re so much more comfortable that way!
