Alterations on embellished corset


I've fallen in love with a corset top and separate skirt. I've found the top for a GREAT discounted price but it is 1 size larger than what my measurements dictate. It's not a traditional corset with the lace up back, it's got a zip in the back and the entire top is embellished with Swarovski crystals and beads on bobbinet. Here is a link to the product:

Does anyone know much about alterations? Will I be ok getting this sized down? As a guidance I have previously been told wedding dresses can be sized up to two sizes down so thinking I should be ok on that basis it's just the beading that's making me nervous. And I'm pretty small in the cup size so I suspect this will need to be taken in quite a bit. I don't mind paying a bit more on alterations since I will be paying so much less for the top but don't want to risk the top not looking right. 

Appreciate any advice people have on the matter!

     I sent a photo of a dress to a seamstress via messenger to see if she could alter it. I found a local one on facebook
