This can be from the top to the waist / hips or all the way down to the hem (to reshape at the hips). Occasionally, the dresses may need to be let out also.
More often than not, the centre back usually has a zip, buttons & loops (or both), or can be a lace up.
The hem can have many layers. Often, there is a petticoat, lining and self layer. Sometimes the hem may have a lace scallop edging, crinalin edging or other details.
Sometimes, if the dress is too long in the body, lifting from the straps can help.
Straps can be added to a strapless dress. They can also be removed to make the dress strapless.

Bust cups are sometimes used when a bra isn't suitable. ie. if the dress is backless or see through.
Additionally, sometimes the dress has sleeves which may need taking in or shortening.
