That is a tough one… I would say that since it is a corset you could go either way.  I think you should go with the smaller size personally… I also have a corset back and I fit the sample, but my consultant (also friend), told me that it would be a good idea to go a size smaller because that will make the let the corset tie without bunching it and it will be pretty… if that makes sense… Also, corset dresses come with that panel on the back that doesnt have to be buttoned up, allowing for a little wiggle room. Also, it gives you that wiggle room if you continue to shead the weight off and not ruin the look of the corset by needing to pull the larger size tighter.

I would order the larger size.  The smaller size is 3 inches smaller than your current waist measurement, so I would be scared to order it, with such a short time for alterations.  The larger size seems like it’s a much closer fit to your measurements.  Plus, they can always take fabric away, but it’s difficult to add fabric, especially if you only have 12 days to fix any problems.  Good luck!

definitely larger size. much easier to fix.

losing 3 inches in the waist in 6 weeks would be REALLY hard. 1-2 inches maybe, but a full 3 would be tough IMO.

if it’s too small, you’re up the creek without a paddle. much safer to order the larger size and play it safe!
