    Personally, I love corset backs, so I vote to alter it! 😛

    I’m not sure exactly if there are any structural things to deal with when putting in a corset with this type of dress (because it looks like the zipper doesnt sit flat because of the pickups), but I would add buttons to cover the zipper.

    I voted for the corset too, I think it would look beautiful with your dress, and even if you gain or lose a little weight before the wedding your dress will still fit perfectly.

    I’m not sure how difficult it would be to add a corset, but I like the idea of adding buttons and loops! The zipper cover as-is is a little distracting.

    @Waitingbee57:  I voted to put a corset in, but I’m in LOVE with corset backs. I will be putting one in my own dress if it doesn’t already have it when I find the one….so yeah 🙂

    I think you should leave it as is, no corset,  and maybe even lower the back slightly into a dip or a V-shape, as it is really flattering on a lot of people (as long as it doesn’t mess up the structure of your dress or the fit in the front of the dress)

    @Waitingbee57:  I really like the idea of loops and buttons too! Buttons are gorgeous. But maybe if you’re currently trying to lose weight a lace-up back is a safer option. You know how weight loss goes – you try and try and try and nothing happens, you have your final fitting 2 weeks before the wedding, then all the stress hits you and you’re a little nervous. 10 pounds suddenly drop off of you and the next thing you know it’s the morning of your wedding and you’re swimming in your dress! Wouldn’t that be annoying?

    @Waitingbee57:  One of the main reasons I want a corset is so if I lose a bunch of weight then it is perfectly fine because it will still fit, and if I don’t lose much, then same reason. I don’t want to have to worry soooooooooooooooooooo much about weight that it is all I focus on from now til then. I would LOVE to lose some, but if I don’t lose a bunch then I’m ok with that. And corsets suck you in a little 🙂

    @Waitingbee57:  I love a corset for the fit, but my weight fluctuates for seemingly no reason so I like having the peace of mind of knowing that it will fit whatever weight I’m at on my wedding day.

    I don’t get why anyone would want to change to a corset back. You’d never see a couture gown with amy thing but a zip/buttons, so in my opinion I think they completely cheapen the look of dresses.
