This is so cool! I’d never heard of this before

My ceremony dress is made exactly like this. It is a Maggie Sottero Shelby, for reference. From the outside, you can see only the zipper. From the inside, there is a corset back with a pretty thick ribbon, and boning. The corset back is quite small, and built in the plunging deep V of the back of the dress, but I feel it does a lot to not only keep the dress in place, since it’s completely backless, but also to cinch the waist a bit. 

Interestingly enough though the zippered layer seems to be a little smaller than the corset layer. A month ago, before losing more weight, I could completely close the corset until the two sides touched, but not fully zip the dres up – maybe 1/2 -3/4 of an inch was missing. Wedding’s in 17 days and my dress is already in Italy, but I will post pics when I get there  🙂
