    Love covered buttons and zip-up is just fine too.

    Corsets just….I don’t know.  They don’t look good to me.  I feel like they take so much away from the dress.

    BurlapnLace:  I like the back of your dress the best. Zipper or buttons, really. I don’t like the way corset looks, it’s just not my thing …

    I used to love corsets, but now as I’ve gotten older (a whole whopping 21) I really prefer buttons over lace ups. But oddly enough my wedding dress simply has a hidden zipper 🙂 I have like a little “flap” of beading that snaps over top of the zipper where the band of beading is. When it’s on, you can’t see it at all and the tulle on the skirt covers the rest of it well. I love it!

    I’m a fan of buttons. I had them on both of my dresses. They went all the way down the train on my ball gown and I loved it!

    Not a big fan of corsets but I’ve seen them done tastefully. It’s really up to your personal preference.

    Corset for me, I love the feeling of being held in. Breathing? Eating? Not important lol, lace me up tight!!

    Mine started as a zipper. I really wanted a corset because the ladies needed the snugness to stay in place. I REALLY didnt want to wear a bra. The designer changed it from zipper to corset for me 🙂

    Buttons! They are just so bridal. Mine has buttons too.

    I like the logistics of the corset because my weight fluctuates, but I like the look of the buttons a lot more!

    Covered buttons all the way!!  A wedding dress shouldn’t look like lingerie!
