Oooh gorgeous dress!!! Corsets are always very flattering too. I am thinking of having my zip-up back made into a corset back. Congrats!

Your gown is adorable!  Sorry your Mom hurt your feelings.  I definitely think that the corsett will pull you in a bit.  However, I noticed your wedding date, you’ve got some time to trim your tummy a bit.  I’m a plus-sized bride and followed Weight Watchers “rules” pretty closely before my wedding.  But, the greatest thing ever was Jilian Michael’s 30 day shred!  It’s a short workout that gets you sweating!  I’m sure you’ll see results…IF that is what you desire!  Much luck to you and enjoy the planning!  Wink

Congratulations on finding your dress! 

I went to the dressmaker last week for a dress alteration and I had a tummy buldge so I wanted to know if there was anything she could do, or should I take the dress back [it wasn’t final sale but I had 24 hours to return it if I wanted to]. and she whipped out this long line bra for me to try that flattened my tummy!  I couldn’t believe it.  She also recommended spanks.  Not Victoria Secret brand of Spanks, but the real mccoy spanks.  She was right.

I went in thinking corset!

So try the dress on with the proper underwear.

Ask the corset question of a tailor/dress maker/alterations lady.  I don’t think the corset will pull in the tummy.

You have a lovely bust line and waist!  I would forgo the corset and try the underwear.  The dress is lovely from the back and it fits you so nicely!  I wouldn’t mess with perfection!!

Dress looks gorgeous on you! A corset back definitely does suck some things in an flatten. That would be helpful if you feel like you need it, but I think you look beautiful without it!

 I love that dress! I know a corset back would help if you don’t want to wear a bra, you can tighten it enough to hold the girls in. I don’t know ifi t helps with the tummy (although I didn’t even notice it you look so good). If you’re sensitive about it I’d go with spanx. They make all the difference in the world!
