Thanks for all the advice guys, so much appreciated, I’m going to keep hunting for a laceup-lace gown with V neck, but maybe it just doesn’t really exist, one of those things in a time of strapless huh?
@Sweetrose, good idea but I really don’t think the seamstress around here is that skilled, plus it’d be so hard to find matching colours etc….thanks though!
@Huckleberry, such a good idea but my problem is that my size is a really strange one, my bust is a 32Dirty Delete but my waist is 26-27inch, and my hips are, well let’s not even get into how big they are! But my point is I have a really strange ratio and as a result it’s really hard getting dresses to fit me without a lace up or big alterations, and I’m getting married just after Christmas so no one will be able to alter it around that time, therefore I have to pick a dress and get it altered around 3 months before the wedding….tricky.
@Melly, I love La sposa and pronovias in general but they never seem to marry lace up to the look I’m after.
@Bells, I think you’re right I just don’t trust myself to get it spot on, my body seems to have a mind of its own. Also, I’m thinking of the Essence of Australia style lace up backs which are authentic lace ups and do allow for room to move.
@Missskinner, thanks for the advice, and that dress is really cute, I’m totally going to hunt it down to try it on.
@Ryna, great idea but seamstresses over here are crazy expensive, like way more than the price of a pronovias all up for example.
@Snuggly, seriously? I didn’t know that, I thought Astra carried Sottero? Although last time I was in there the samples were so so so dated.
