I bought my dress second hand. It was originally a zip back, but the previous bride had put a laced corset in. I didn’t care for the style of corset they’ve used so had a zipper put back in. It looks beautiful!!!!

I actually wanted to go the other way and change the zipper to a corset. I decided against it last minute and regretted it. With a zippered dress, it has to fit you exactly. With a corset, there’s some leeway if you gain/lose weight unexpecteddy before the wedding. In my case, I had about a month between the last fitting and the wedding day and sadly gained some weight in between. My bridesmaid almost couldn’t get me into my dress the day of the wedding!! 

Not saying that will happen to you, but something to consider, that a corset allows for flexibilitY.
