    I prefer the look of buttons (though, oddly enough, I have a corset).   I think they look more classic and elegant

    An advantage to having a corset is that you don’t really have to worry as much about fitting into your dress – is it laced to fit your exact body no worries.

    I love the look of buttons – something so old fashioned about them. But … corsets can make a heck of a difference to the overall shape of the dress.

    @MissBananaBread: I went in shopping for button button button…and walked out with a corset back. 😉 So, if I may suggest, don’t corner yourself ahead of time. Allow yourself to see it in the moment. It depends on the overall design of the dress sometimes. Good luck! 🙂

    I love the buttons!  Most of the dresses I tried on were that way, not a whole lot of corsets.  Something about the look is so appealing.

    I like the look of buttons but I LOVE the shape that a corset gives you. There are some dresses with an inner corset and button closure. You can have the best of both worlds.Smile

    My mind is completely un-made-up about this. I was liking the idea of a corset back kind of for the utility of it in accomodating slight size shifts or maybe avoiding some alterations, not necessarily for the look. Then Fiance offhandedly mentioned that he thought a corset back would be odd on me, I think he feels they’re sort of traditional, maybe princess-y, which I am certainly not. So I’m just a big ball of whatever on dress fastening options!
