    @SakuraBlossomBee:  I was in a similar situation, but didn’t have a corset back. I ended up buying the bigger size just to be on the safe side. I actually tried on my dress for the first time today and it’s great! It won’t need too many alterations and fits where it needs to. 


    Honestly though, if I’d had a corset back, I may have ordered the smaller size…

    Are you worried about having too many alterations for the cost or for losing the look of the dress?

    I would say order the bigger size b/c it’s easier to take in than it is to let out.  I’m not sure how it works w/ the corset back, but I would say if you’re worried about having to take everything in, you can take it in 2-3 sizes without losing the look of the dress.  Also, as for cost, I think it’s the same if she’s going to let it out than if she’s going to let it in.

    Hopefully someone else with a corset back will have a better answer for you though.  Good luck!

    @SakuraBlossomBee:  I was in the middle of a 6 and 8 and the store wanted me to buy the 8.  Mine was not a corset back and I decided to get the 6 and I’m glad I did. It fit great.  Any bigger and the alterations would have been very expensive since the middle is a built in beaded belt.  I would go with the 4.

    I agree with PPs, it is easier to take in then let out. On another note, we are almost the same measurements (me: 33/24/35.5)!
