Sew it up!  I always machine-baste my seam closed before laying in (and hand-basting) my zipper flat against my seam allow.

So, do that, and then just don't put in the zipper.  See?  Easy!  I wriggled my way into my green st. patty's day dress last week, but when I looked in the mirror, I found out that the reason I'd been able to slink (and I do mean slink, as in, heave my boobs in one girl at a time, breathing deeply and then releasing all the oxygen I could before I wriggled) was because there was a 1" gap between my back and the fabric.  So, I wriggled my way back out, sewed the seam up tighter and now have to put in the zipper.  There's just no way.  I think the more full-figure one is, the less likely to pass the Mena-test.
