25 lbs since my last alterations (wedding postponed due to covid) and i’m worried i need the dress taken in again. The wedding is in just over a month! Should I rush more alterations or does it look okay?

    From the front it looks fine. Can you loosen the corset a bit? Are you wearing a veil that covers? It looks okay but from the back I see what you mean but it doesn't look like it is too close rather too tight. If you loosened it a bit would it hang on you?

    Corset looks good to me!

    I do think you may have laced it a little too tight, the dress is bunching at the front

    Great figure! Congrats on the weight loss!

    If i loosen it too much more it starts to fall down as im very small chested! I’ll try walking around with it a bit looser and see how it goes! Thank you for the advice!

    No veil, we had it looser but it started to slip down as i walked around (I’m small chested). I’ll try to loosen it a bit and find a happy medium!

    I think it looks lovely! However, if you are worried about it maybe schedule an appointment with your seamstress and see what can be done. She/he might have a trick up their sleeves that don't require a full rush of alterations.

    If the chest area is an issue for you, you can add padding or “cutlets”. Everything looks fine to me.

    Ahhhh okay that makes sense. You can try but it doesn't look to tight.

    Wow, I think the V of the corset lace-up is perfect and flattering.

    I think it looks great! I didn't even know there was such a thing as a corset being too closed. Do whatever makes you feel best!

    In addition to the chicken cutlets suggestion, maybe try adjusting how it's being laced. The corset back is great because it's so versatile - I feel like you could probably tighten it at the top without getting it so tight towards the bottom for the bunching. Looks great!

    I think the corset is beautiful regardless but it is bunching in the front. It may just be because it’s too tight? However, regardless I think it’s very impressive you lost 25 pounds, I need your ticks 😂 you look beautiful!

    This is exactly what I was thinking too. The back still looks too tight.
