clementsbee :  You look stunning!! I’m thinking of removing straps and lowering the back as well. May I ask roughly how much it was to do these alterations? Im concerned changing the back will be a crazy price!

bie McFarlane :  Hi!  Thank you!!

So I chose a pricey seamstress which I wasn’t unaware of until the quote and just didn’t want the hassle of going somewhere else lol.  The alterations were $1,000 and it included shortening the dress ($400), removing the straps ($200), lowering the back ($250), and other minor changes like bustle and such ($150).  Good luck!!!

Here are a couple more pics (last one is not professional):

Can anyone show what their bustles looked like?

From experience, which back option would you say this dress is best in? I prefer the look of the zip and buttons personally, however, I very much have curves and love the way the lace up really hugs my curves. Is the dress still as tightly fitted with the zip up?
