- Wedding: February 2012
I had originally planned on ordering a custom gown from an online retailer to combinine a couple dresses I had found because they were out of my budget, but after reading more than a handful of horror stories, and knowing that I had already tried on and felt “the dress” I was basing most of my gown on, I had too many doubts.
I went to try the gown on again and my FH LOVED it, (and it was the only gown he’s loved other than a simple white taffeta trumpet gown I had tried on.) The boutique manager then came up as I was in the dress and said she wanted me to have it and offered us 25% off with only $100 down…so we got it.
Now my dillema…I want a corset back!
My gown is a size 6 and it’s a little too big-plus I plan on losing at least another 10 lbs before the big day. I know corsets are usually added to gain size and I don’t want to mess with the integrity of my beautiful gown, but I really want the corset back! I want to keep the open split at the top, so I’d want the corset to start only where the zipper is…
