I have the dress that I got at a steal. The only thing that I want to change is the back closure. It is just a straight zipper with nothing to disguise it. I originally thought that I’d love a corset closure, and I was assured by the alterations dept. at the store that wouldn’t be a problem. My only concern is that there is beading that goes down the right side of the back and not the left. I was wondering if adding a corset back would be “too much” or not. I also thought about adding the button closure. Please give me some suggestions…I’m open to it all! Here’s the dress, I hope you can see the beading I’m talking about:

I think buttons would look really good on the back of that dress. It’ll probably be cheaper than a corset and you wouldn’t lose any of the beading.

Thank you! The beading is so unique that I didn’t want to take away from it. I love both buttons and corsets and I just can’t decide. Thank goodness I’ve got some time!

i agree, i think buttons would look beautiful on your dress. they would hide the zipper and you could still keep all that beautiful beading. i could see all the beading getting cut away if you did a corset.

I agree with PP’s! Keep the beading and add buttons. I think that would look stunning!
