    I think a zipper button back looks much prettier, but man the corset sure does make your figure look great.  I’m sad that the dress I’m considering right now has the corset, but it looks sooo good on!

    Corsets or built ins are a great way to lift up areas where you may pull up during the night due to discomfort and shifting when dancing with a strapless gown!

    I say if you don’t like the look of a corset (I personally LOVE them) then go for a built in!

    Mine has a zipper and buttons, but there is a corset underneath. It stays up fine without the corset done, but when it is done my waist looks super tiny. I would leave the zipper.

    If you’re not worried about weight fluctuations, I’d say just leave it as a zipper. I’m personally not a huge fan of the corset look, but that’s just a matter of taste. If you’re concerned about it staying up, once the dress is properly fitted, it should stay up no matter what kind of closure it has.

    I love the look AND feel of a corset. My dress was secure and gave me amazing curves once it was all laced up. Plus I had very minimal alterations fees because of the corset.

    I tried on several zipper only dresses and didn’t feel comfortable. I didn’t mind the hidden corset because it allowed for the shaping and fitting benefits of a corset but I really like the look of it when it shows.

    I love corsets.  However, I chose other.  You could always have a bra sewn in and you won’t have to worry about the dress falling down

    Mine is a Zipper with buttons. I swore I would never buy anything but a corseted dress but this one was perfect and would not have looked good converted. Personally I would never wear a wedding dress however with an exposed zipper so add buttons or get a corset. Can we see a pic of the dress?
