I would try to find a seamstress in a drycleaner to do it. That’s what I did, they tend to not charge as much. See about getting it let out and the corset added…but I think I would wait at least another month just to make sure

Oh no! Damn pill! 🙁

Maybe you could exchange it instead of buying a whole new dress? I would keep calling seamstresses, too. Ask friends and family, word of mouth is always the best advertisement.

Aww, if it makes you feel any better, I promise you’ll find a solution before your wedding, and the worst case scenarios you’re imagining will not actually happen.  I don’t think there’s ever been a bride who walked down the aisle with her zipper only done halfway 🙂  Seamstresses can work miracles.  Sorry you’ve had trouble finding one so far.

Oh no!!  The mirror shows such a pretty back.  It would suck to alter that.  Maybe 2 small side corsets?

Could you put in a button with an extender or something? It seems like since you have that panel that comes down to cover the zipper anyways, if you fudged it no one would be able to see. Would that work?

@bakerella: oh, that’s a good idea! But how would you stop the zipper from coming down when bending over?

With such a pretty back, maybe you don’t need a corset?  Would you be able to just let out the seams?  That’s such a simple fix.  I’m sorry you’re having to worry about this!
