    @golfergirl:  I am going to be doing this. What I plan to do is get a strong, real corset (Probably the Mae underbust from What Katie Did) and then marking the place on my laces where I laced to. Then I am going to put on my dress, and have the seamstress alter it to my corseted waist size. I plan to wear the corset several times before the wedding to get accustomed to the reduction.

    @golfergirl:  my dress was an Anjolique dress, and it was built exactly this way. I loved it because I got the best of both worlds- the tightening of the corset, but the button look that I loved. 🙂

    @golfergirl:  It all worked out just great – there was no gap.  it wasn’t a full corset however, so it didn’t cover my whole tummy – so i can’t comment on that much, sadly.

    If your dress has boning, the boning in the corset would conflict with the boning in the dress and be very uncomfortable.  I recommend spanx instead.  It will suck you in without being hard and constricting like a steel-boned corset.

    @Christy42213:  + I’m wondering the same thing, you say your dress already has boning in the construction – I would imagine an additional corset would be both uncomfortable and bulky? Have you tried really heavy-duty shapewear, Spanx etc? I like Nancy Ganz too.
