Do you mean you just want the corset tighter or the corset doesn’t actually fit?

Im having a hard time understanding what you mean. But if you take your dress to an experienced bridal seamstress, they can alter anything!

It sounds to me like you’re saying the corset closes as tightly as possible so that if you lost 10 more lbs, the dress would be loose on you, am I right?  Seamstresses have altered all sorts of dresses – I’m sure a bit of ruching and even a built in belt won’t be too bad.  You should post a pic of you in the dress so we can understand.

@miss narwhal:  Ah ok. This is actually a pretty easy* fix. What the seamstress does is take the dress in at the sides (where the seams are). That way, the corset can tighten a lot more, and you can get more of the shape you want!

 

From the looks of it, she’d take in about 2″+!

Oh yes easy fix!! When I bought my dress it was too small and I had back daft popping out over the corset! I lost the weight, more than I expected but the seamstress was able to take it in so there is a beautiful v in the corset now 🙂

@miss narwhal:  I totally get what you’re saying about the V-back of the corset, but I just wanted to say that I think it looks awesome the way it is. It reminds me of a spine. Which, I understand, is not necessarily what you’re going for. 😀
