    I love the way my body looks in a corset. I don’t have a very defined waist, and a corset turns me into a regular hourglass!

    All 3! I have an interior corset followed by a zipper and the buttons on the outside to make it look extra pretty.

    Mine is a corset, but I love the buttons.  I chose the corset to allow for weight fluctuations, and movement.  All the gowns with buttons and zips that I tried on felt really unforgiving, and I was terrified if I gained even a couple pounds, a zipper wouldnt do up or I’d pop buttons.

    I love Buttons all the way!  I think there is something so timeless and classy about them. 

    @kjgirl05 : what a cute idea to add a different color for your corset, so cute!

    The back of mine is zip-up but I’m adding lace covered buttons because I love the look and thought I needed to spice the back of the dress up just a tad bit.

    Here’s the back of the dress on the model:

    Mine is a zip up. I’m not fan of buttons, so I knew I didn’t want that option. The dress I fell in love with had a zipper.

    CORSET by FAR! I have a “ruler” body shape and only a corset gives me the illusion of a pretty hourglass shape ๐Ÿ™‚ plus it fits like a glove! If I could wear a corset everyday I would hehe

    I wanted a zip up with the faux buttons but being a bigger gal when my consultant put me in a corset and started lacing me up whooooaaaa!  My curves looked AWESOME… and I was sold!

    I love corsets and buttons, but my dress had a zipper.  I thought of getting it modified, but ultimately just went with it as it was.  The perk was that it was very quick and easy to get in and out of!

    I love love love fabric covered buttons, but they wouldn’t go with all the lace and beadwork on my dress, so I settled for a zipper.
