This will help make the dress look more modest, you will not have a lot of back showing on your dress just because you added the corset to it. This panel will cover up everything just like the zipper did, but give you all of the modesty that you might need for a big church wedding. There are several ways that you can add this modesty panel, but again you might need the help of a professional to make sure that you are doing it right and will not ruin your dress.


The next step is to find the ribbon that you want to use on your corset wedding dress. There are so many options that you can choose to use here. You can pick any type of fabric to use as the ribbon, and can even use different colors. If your wedding has a color scheme that you would like to incorporate into the dress, this might be a nice place to do it. You could alternate between your wedding color and the white to give the dress a unique look.
