I do not know what part of the corset you are talking about. If you are asking about adding a lace up back to a traditional zip up dress then yes, it is totally possible and easy and will make it much tighter on you if it is curently not tight. If you are asking about boneing that is a little more difficult to just add to a dress. it depends a lot on the lining an dthe thickness of the fabric etc. Any good seamstress should be able to add a lace up back to your dress no problem.

I ordered this bustier below to have sewn into my strapless dress. The lady at the designer’s shop where I bought my dress said that many of their brides do this to have that secure feel, having it sewn to the dress makes it not slip around at all. I haven’t found a seamstress, but hopefully the one I find can do it nicely! This thing was on sale for $40 w/my MAcy’s card.

I’m pretty sure you’re talking about the same “inner corset” as my dress has. I would try taking this picture of my dress (or another dress with an inner corset you prefer) to your seamstress and see if she can create one for you. I don’t know where you would purchase the “flaps”, and I think it might only be possible to create one if your dress is made with the right dress material. Here is a picture of the inside of my dress in case it helps at all.

@lauraahoughton:  I’m glad I could help. I *think* the corset flaps are attached to the boning in the dress. Does your dress have boning? Also let me know if you need other pictures, I would be happy to take them for you.

@lauraahoughton:  Its super stretchy, kind of like shapeware. It definately sucks me in, even though I’m pretty small. My Fiance is home right now, so I can’t take more photos right now, but if you want I can take a few more pics and see if I can see if the materials are listed on the tag. As far as I understand, each flap is sewn onto the dress where the boning is. Heres a pic of the other sides of the flaps. There are 3 rows of hooks, which are just like the kind you have on a bra.

@lauraahoughton:  I bet you could have the seamstress add in the boning if the corset requires it. I think its necessary because the corset pulls a lot on the spot where it is attached. I pmed you and I’ll try to email you a few more photos when I have a chance to take them. I would definately take the dress to someone who is very experienced with alterations, because if they need to add the boning it might be a major alteration. I think they would only need to add two pieces of boning though. 

My dress is La Sposa Fanal and its made out of satin for anyone that was wondering btw.
