Corset lacing

I'm rethinking the corset lacing. I think the bridal loops that i got (which are actually intended for buttons) are too close together for a corset (1cm wide loops right next to each other) and so the ribbons are touching, and you don't get the full effect of the lacing - from a distance it just looks like a block of white down the middle. I've already sewn the lining and don't feel like unpicking it all, so i think what i'll do is tack down every second loop to the outside of the lining (ie the inside of the dress). The loops won't bother me when wearing it as i'll have a modesty panel in (which is something i still have to make and figure out how it's attached).

Got the bra inserts on the weekend too so sometime this week i'll unpick some of the lining and position them, tack them in place and see if that corrects the wrinkling effect.
