    @honeybee111:  I liked the corset because I didn’t really have to watch what I ate/my weight (within reason).  However, it was incredibly uncomfortable, but I’m a t-shirt and yoga pants type of girl so most dresses are uncomfortable to me.

    Before dress shopping, I preferred the look of zip backs.  I ended up with a corset back dress, though, and I LOVE IT.  The alterations have been so ridiculously easy – it only needs a bustle and bra cups sewn in.  I also like that I have a little bit of a safety net if my weight fluctuates and I don’t have to stress out too much about whether it will fit right before the wedding.

    My dress zips in the back. I like both styles and can certainly see the benefit of a corset back but the dress I fell in love with just happens to zip and I think a corset would be just too much going on in back for me. Thankfully my dress fits and I know my body enough to know that even if I lost 20 lbs or gained a little, my dress size tends to stay exactly the same. So I shouldn’t need any major alterations, probably just the hem.

    I don’t like the way that corsets look in a wedding dress, but I understand that they’re easier to fit.

    My dress has a zip back, I specifically didn’t want a corset. Not for fit reasons, I just personally don’t like the look on me.

    I love the back of my dress, but sometimes I wish mine had a corset…only because I’m losing weight, and I’m REALLY worried about the fit. :/

    Zipper, covered with buttons.

    I don’t like the way corsets look, unless you’re tiny they never seem to look right.

    I like corsets because of the flexibility regarding size, but I don’t always love the way they look.  I really prefer zippers, especially with buttons.  Mine has a zip with little crystal buttons which are really pretty.  I am a sucker for a long row of fabric buttons, though.

    Corsets…they’re so feminine and sexy without being overtly lewd :0)
