I am looking for a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that has the following:
– asymmetrical gathering in the front
– corset as my Maid/Matron of Honor refuses to wear a strapless dress without one
– preferably made of satin but not critical
– price range under $200
– available in red/burgundy
Please let me know if you know of any such dresses or where I could find them – I need two.

this is a link to what my bridesmaids will be wearing. Not sure if this is what you’re looking for and it doesn’t have the corset, but she can always buy that separately if she really wants one and just wear it under the dress.
It’s from Jasmine Bridal and my dresses will be $130 ea. from where I am getting them. I’d suggest finding a retailer who has this line and look at their swatches becasue the fabrics look MUCH different in person than on their website.

Have you looked at Ann Taylor?
This is a re-enforced bodice (not a corset), that comes in your colors, is cocktail length and is A-lined (not to mention, only $59.44 ea!):
You may want to also check http://www.alfredangelo.com, they have two piece corset Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that are strapless for a good price.

Where do you live? I got something similar for my bridesmaids in downtown los angeles at a store called Trendy Too. It was a two piece and the top is not corset style but it held up well on my BM’s that tried it on. The dress was a slightly dark red (not bright candy apple red) and had the rathering on one side like you want. The bottoms were long, but you can always get them altered for cheap in downtown. I negotiated the dresses down to $75/each and I was told the alterations for length would be less than $30. The material was satin-like. I doubt it was real satin for that price, probably a cheap blend but it looked good!
Too bad I don’t get the dresses for another 3 weeks or I would post a picture for you. 🙂

hmm… Alfred Angelo’s 6129SN is close (asymmetrical gather, red, cocktail length, satin), but no corset. Check it out at alfredangelo.com.
