@stillme Letting the OP know she isn’t crazy for not having a corset back??

I had about a billion and five people ask me if I was going to convert my dress to a corset back. I started to feel like I was the only one in the world that didn’t want one. Maybe thats where OP is coming from? Or…maybe she is a horrible terrible bride that wants to bash corsets?? I think its probably closer to the first option though.

@MrsPinkPeony haha, yes, you’re probably right! I had never even seen a corset back, or been asked if I was going to have one, till well after I was already married. I guess I didn’t realize they were such a big trend.

Well maybe I’m “cheap” because I don’t want to wear a dress that costs as much as my car loan 😛 I like my corsetted back because like some other poster’s said I like the cinched-in feeling it gives me. it makes my waist look tiny. And I’m one of those girls whose weight goes up and down a few pounds regularly. I don’t think it looks cheap/trashy. And mrscheetos, I’ve never seen a prom dress with a corset back. In fact, just to double check myself I just went to three different prom dress sites and couldn’t find one with a corset.

I’m still wondering why the OP needs to feel like she’s not alone in disliking something.   These kinds of threads just kind of alienate half of the hive, you know?

I wore a corset dress and this post doesn’ t offend me at all. We all like different styles, I’m not a fan of pickups or mermaid gowns. I however only like corsets with the modesty panel and if goes with the style of dress. I do think they’re very romantic and somewhat old fashioned looking so I don’t think they look right on every dress out there, I notice 90% of Maggie gowns have them. I loved mine cuz it went perfectly with the rouching and the entire corset was surrounded by beautiful beading. It was my favorite thing about my dress by far.

@swanks4tw I agree with you but I thought I’d add that my prom dress had a corset back (but I never made it to prom- lol) A few of my friends did as well. Type in corset prom dress in google search and some amazing dresses pop up… I want half of these just to have lol.

I could take or leave them, they can be pretty and like everything else can be not so pretty. Don’t have my dress yet so I’ll see have to wait and see what I decide!

@KristenGotMarried Hmm…I feel like I see posts like this a lot. It may have been better if OP had phrased it a little different like…”anyone else going with a dress w/o a corset” or something like that but I don’t think she meant it nasty just like I didn’t think your post about “plain dresses” came off bad either. To each their own.

I have but but I don’t really care what I think is silly is buttons on the back of a zippered dress. Yes, you can tell.

@vmec funny story about that….went to a wedding about a year ago, the bride had buttons down the back of her dress. During the reception she was dancing and popped like 6 of them off and almost lost her dress!!! I remember thinking, “THATS WHY YOU HAVE A ZIPPER!” but like you she was so against the zipper/button look. LOL.

@JustLove Off topic. Your avatars are similar and I was very confused for a minute. I was asking myself why Just Love had Vmec’s avatar as hers.

I stand corrected 🙂 I *personally* have never seen one with a corset. The store I got my wedding gown at does a lot of prom dresses as well and I didn’t see any with corsets there. Also maybe it was just random that none of the prom dress sites I went to had them or maybe it is something that is less popular in prom dresses these days than it was a few years ago.

Do you really think anyone buys their gown based on the BACK of it more than the front? I seriously doubt anyone shops thinking they MUST have a corset back,or buttons,or a zipper….because of a few pictures of you walking down the aisle?

I had 100 real covered buttons down my back and it was a bear to get them all done, but when I got married I had 2 choices. Zipper or buttons. I like that brides now have another choice in having a corset. (and I agree about the zipper and buttons not fooling anybody)
