hmmm, i can’t say what is cheaper, but i am inclined to say go with a corset. what if you lose weight before the wedding too? a corset can adjust to anything!

I 2nd @dynamic_duo:    I loved having the corsett option for my dress because it kept the dress fitting me despite gaining weight and eventually losing some.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  OMG I totally remember you and your amazing dress! 

Sadly, I have no advise for the corset back. As you know from reading my thread I’m not a fan of mine but I just wanted to say you look freaking gorgeous!

Hey fellow June bride. It seems really early for your first fitting. If your planning on losing some more weight can you push back your appointment for end of April? It will also be best to talk with your alterations lady about the price options and the best way to go about altering your dress.

2 months before my wedding I had the corset back put in…. it almost fit, i only needed to get rid of a pound or two, but I wanted to be able to breathe….so I went with corset. She told me it would cost around the same, and I had TONS of beading in the back of my dress and they were still able to do it…… it was worth it.

I am opting to lose weight and not have a corset put in bescapes I spent SO much money on the dress! But everyone isadvising me to do the corset thing. I like my buttons though!

I think putting a corsette put in will be somewhere between 120-200 dollars?  I’m not sure.  But I like the idea of a corsette cause it will fit you perfectly.  You won’t have to worry about any last minute weight gain.  Having a dress let out sounds like it could be a nightmare because it’s more difficult than taking it in and it might alter the shape of the dress if not done properly.  I have trouble trusting a seamstress to do anything other than hemming, haha.  I think your dress looks absolutely beautifult the way it is right now, and i think a corsette will preserve that look.  I’m actually afraid having it let out will look different on you.

I took a pic just for you…. hehe. I’ll include the one I just took and one from the wedding day. The alteration cost was as follows (btw, props to me for keeping receiptsWink): $135.00 for corset, including the alteration and addition of ties + a $25.00 rush fee…. so my final payment was $160.00. That was at David’s bridal, so I’m sure the price was a tad inflated….
