Mori Lee came out with a dress that is almost exactly like mine but with a corset back. I am wondering if I should buy the dress with a corset back or if I should go to a new seamstress and pay for the corset back to be put on my current dress. My current seamstress that I have been using (and who is a friend of mine’s mother) doesn’t want to put a corset in my current dress because of the amount of work it would take. It is all beaded.

Personally, I am not a fan of corset backs. They make me think of barmaids. I think you should keep your dress as it is. It is gorgeous!!

@stephanie63087: My sentiments exactly!
@Willow1991: Girl, you KNOW I am in love with you in this dress, and don’t want you to change one thing about it! It’s gorgeous, and so are you. 🙂 Don’t worry about getting a corset put in.

that dress is beautiful!!!! I did a few major alterations to my dress and was a little dissapointed. The dress was amazing as it was I just wanted to make it a little better. But now I think it was best as it was.
However, I have a corset back and I love it because I have lost some weight and the dress still fits me really well because I can just tighten that sucker up =) I wouldnt think you would want to buy an entirely new dress (especially since that one is amazing)
My advice would be to go with what you already have. But, if your heart is set on a corset make sure you add it with a great well reveiwed alterations person.
Remeber it is already amazing looking!!!!!!!!!!

My main reason for wanting to do the corset is so I can be more confident that it will fit well. When I get stressed out I lose weight so I am worried I might lose a couple lbs in that last week and my dress won’t be fitted anymore. Let me see if I can find the current back. It is buttons down the back of the bodice… no buttons on the skirt.

Don’t put a corset in. It’s lovely as it is.

I like the button back better, but the only thing that counts is what you like.

The Mori Lee dress does not have the stunning scalloped lace trim at the bottom of the skirt. That is one of the most stunning parts of your dress.
My dress has a hidden corset in the back with the buttons on the outside. Maybe this would be an option to discuss with your seamstress?

I like the button back better too. Maybe you could go to the seamstress a few weeks before the wedding and have her make sure it fits perfectly? Also, the hem on your dress is beautiful!
