    I’m not sure which to pick because I have a dilemma,  My dress has a regular zipper which isn’t my favorite, but I can’t decide what to do with it! I go back and forth and don’t know which will look better.  I’m looking forward to the responses!

    @DaLadyA: I have all three! I have an underwear corset to suck me in, a zip to fasten the dress and buttons with loops to cover the zip. I think it’s the best of all worlds.

    @SpecialSundae: Me too! Corset on the inside, then a zipper but my buttons are only for show.

    I have a corset, it’s going to be a pain to get on, but it holds me reallynwell and gives me a great shape.

    @DaLadyA: I went for buttons on the outside because I love the look, zip underneath because I want the security and corset underneath because it just wouldn’t be me without a laced waist (and nothing does a waist like a proper steel-boned Victorian corset).

    @DaLadyA: Thank you! I love it, or I will when I’m finished.

    Because I’m having a proper crinoline (Victorian hoop skirt, think Scarlett O’Hara) with a single frilled petticoat rather than layers and layers of net, I’ll have loads of air circulating around my legs and I shouldn’t get too hot. Hoop skirts are your friend with a big dress!
