Adding corset back to beaded dress

I’ve been looking at dresses online and found two sample dresses ones a Mori Lee andthe other an Ellis. They both have heavily beaded tops and I’m wondering if it would be possible to add a corset back to something like this if I order one and it doesn’t fit properly with the zipper?

    Of course, it just might cost more if they have to rebead the back.

    That is going to be a really expensive alteration. I'd try to find a beaded dress with a corset back already

    My friend added a corset to her gown. Her seamstress said it was much harder to add one than to remove a corset. It’s also much more expensive. But it’s definitely possible. Just make sure you have the time and room in the budget for it.
