  1. My daughter has found a dress she loves with a corset back and she definately does not want that. Can a zipper be installed instead by ordering a larger size or is that too risky?

    • Nancy, the short answer to your question is yes, it may be possible, but defiantly risky! A corset is in the shape of a “V”. To put a zipper in, you need a straight seam. You could order the dress too big and make a straight seam down the back when you take it up, but then the rest of the dress would need to be take in as well, which would be very time consuming, thus expensive! There may be other structural risks to the dress as well, depending on the way it was constructed and the type of fabric used. I wouldn’t take the risk if I were you! I would ask the bridal shop if there is a corset option. Sometimes a designer will make the same dress with both options. The bridal shop may not even know that. Ask them to call the manufacturer and just ask.

      Best of luck to you,
