When I first tried on my dress (also strapless, with a hidden zip) the seamstress said I could add that lace mesh stuff and lower the back too if I wanted. Decided to leave it as it was in the end, but seeing as straps would be more supportive than mesh, I’m sure the back could be lowered.

Some of it will likely depend on the top of your dress. If there is boning and structure in place, it may be more difficult to open the back without loosing the shape. In your first picture it looks like there is boning in the top, to help with the structure of the dress since it is strapless. In the second one, its clear there is no boning and the shape it held mainly togther by the way the straps are designed.

Also keep in mind if you have a great deal of lace or beading on the top, it will be more costly to alter it. Lots of beading or fancy lace means more work, so a bigger charge!

My best advice is to talk to a reputable seamstress. They know much better what will work and what wont based on fabric, design, etc etc.
