corset back dress

can anyone help?

is there a correct way to do up a corset dress, i am now worried that my bridesmaids will be unable to tie it and i will burst out of the dress (not really the entrance i was looking for.)

thanks Alex

    I've had advice about this too - make sure the ties always go under and over the same way each time. Apart from that I don't know.

    I took my bmaids to my fitting so they could have lessons - could you do that too? If you've already brought your dress home could you have practice at home or perhaps you could take it back in with your maids for lessons.

    My mum has been watching closely since I pointed out to her that she was the one who'd be tying me into the dress on the day - 'oh help!' was her reaction. But I think she'll be ok after a couple of practices.

    My corset is laced up back and front and have been advised to just loosen it and slip it over my head and then tighten the ribbons from the top downwards.
