Honestly, I think the train makes up a large part of the glamor of the dress..and isn’t too much at all. However, if you’re set then you would want to tell them you want to change the train to a sweeping train which is the length of the evening gown’s train.

 

Also I personally don’t care for corset backs, at least not compared to buttons! Plus, if you’re going to get the corset because the dress will be too big on you, that’s not going to fix it. It will still be too big in other areas and look off, so your best bet IMO is to take the back it has and you will need to get it altered.

What if you sent them the picture of the black dress and say you want the train that length ? and I would get a corset back if you plan on changing sizes dramatically 🙂

I would order the dress as is and decide then if you want the train.  You can always take it to a local tailor to get the train removed, I doubt it will be that expensive.  Go to a bridal store that carries Allure and find out what size you are.  Order the size you are NOW and you can always get it taken in.   I don’t think a corset back will look that good on this dress, the buttons are fantastic!!

Okay I’m confused are you ordering a replica?

I agree with M123456.  I would order the dress as is and search for a tailor you respect and trust.  They should be able to make adjustments in time.  I can’t imagine ordering a wedding gown and getting it to fit as is.  If you lose 20 pounds, even a corset won’t gurantee a perfect fit.  Your hourglass shape is STUNNING by the way!

I am “in talks” with Dressilyme. When you go to their FAQ section you can contact them through their customer info email address. They were very upfront about what could and could not be done on the dress (and after a few back and forth emails, I finally gave up trying to convince them they COULD do a French Bustle on a lace dress and will just get someone here to do it).

Because the dresses are made, processed and shipped so quickly I am ordering my dress end of Feb for my July wedding. Realistically, from ordering to your door it should be 6-8 weeks, so waiting a few months to order for your Sept wedding shouldn’t be an issue. Personally, I would start talking to them now to see what is possible, and then order once you have lost the 20 lbs– no worries about major alterations or dress sizing!

I love that dress! I think you should definitely get a corset back — it will make alterations easier (and possibly cheaper). I’m having a corset back and my seamstress mentioned that sometimes brides loosen the corset ties after dinner so they can dance more comfortably, which I really liked the idea of! 

And regarding the train, I think you should have them make it the way the dress is originally, and then just bustle it before the wedding even starts if you think it’s too big.

I absolutely love the allure the way it is. I dont think you should change a thing on it. The train makes the dress to me. i love how it flows but that is just my opinion

@amazonbunny: good plan.  The replica sites are so fast, so you can wait a little longer.
