    I love the look of the buttons, so romantic.  My dress is zip up with real buttons covering the zipper.  I do like the way a corest back fits, but I am not crazy about the look of a corset.  I was open to either, but ended up loving a dress that happened to have buttons.

    Same as Pengoala, mine has all 3. The buttons are what’s ultimately visible though, and this is the look I prefer, especially with the added structure the corset gives.

    I originally loved button up backs, but ended up with a zipup:

    I was in my friend’s wedding a couple weeks ago, and it took me 45 minutes to get her in her corset back dress to her liking…so for me, they’re more trouble than they’re worth, but they do look nice.  Mine is zip up which works for me!

    Mine is a zipper with buttons but I am debating having it altered to a corset back….I will decide once the dress comes in.

    My dress had a corset, which I really wanted. I just love the lace-up look of the back of the dress!

    I do love the look of buttons, too. 🙂

    Mine is a corset :). Love it and it kinda ties my dress all together in giving it that romantic feel. I love how tight it hugs my body too and makes my waist look so little.

    Here it is:

    I think it all depends on the dress!  But I prefer the covered buttons as they are so timeless.

    I love them all! My first dress had a hidden side zip, but had buttons down the back just for the look. The dress I’m walking down the aisle in has a corset back, which I love for fitting purposes. My weight has fluctuated down and it wouldn’t fit right now if I had gotten buttons or a zipper.

    I answered buttons, because that’s what is visible (and I sewed in an extra 74 so they go all the way down the drain to the hemline).

    But my dress has a hidden hook-and-eye corset, and a zipper under the buttons.

    Buttons all the way were one of the top items in my dress wishlist.
