So, this is sort of GIS-related in that it's my getting in shape and weight loss efforts that are making me ask this. I know that when you order your dress, you're supposed to order the size that fits your largest measurement, and then size down. Generally, a corset-back is supposed to make a custom-fit even easier to achieve without having to get major alterations, too.My question comes in because I tried on a sample and they said it basically fit perfectly except it was a little snug in the hips [even though I couldn't see it], and that thus I should go one size up and have the rest altered down. The thing is, the bodice fit really well, if not a tiny bit looser than I'd like. It's a corset back so I know I can just pull the laces tighter if I lose weight, but I don't want to end up with like, an inch of lacing. So my question is - if I get the size larger, which will already be too big on the upper part of the bodice, and I lose weight so that the lacing is really small/skinny/however you want to word it...is it really difficult to take in a bodice with that kind of back? It's a corset-style bodice through and through, so there's boning, I believe. It's the Maggie Sottero Lavina Royale.I'd love to order the current sample size rather than size up, but I'm afraid I won't be able to lose the weight. Any insight would really be awesome; thanks in advance!
