@mandas75: I was not a fan of them at first but after going shopping i realized it was the best option for me…my weight fluctuates to much and the last thing i wanted to worry about was fitting into my dress.
This thread though, i think can be a bit hurtful and i dont really see the point in it to be honest… I have already heard someone say that corset dresses are from the “lower quality end: of wedding dresses….kind of makes me feel like i spent 1200.00 on a cheap dress…thanks.
I guess i dont see why this thread was started when we know alot…TONS, THOUSANDS of girls have a corset dress…and people would read this because the title didnt indicate it was going to bash 6 out of oevery 10 brides.
I mean really…how would you feel if i started a thread called
Does anyone else not like,…..
Gold rings with diamonds used from their grandmother??

Depends on the dress:)) I love them and thought I would eventually be wearing one. And, my dress is from DB and does not look like a lower end gown:) I dont think it does at least…Ppl thought it was over 1K because of how much dress there was and the quality when I showed them pics. HAHA yeah right! But the stye of my dress would not work with a corset back…enough detailing on it already. I personally do love them though! The zipper on mine works so well with my dress

@Jeannine @ Small Chic:
I didn’t realize gowns that typically start at $1,000 were “lower end” gowns (Maggie).
I like both the look and the fit of corsettes. I don’t like ones that don’t have a modesty panel, though.
Being able to gain or lose weight without having to alter my dress gives me one less thing to feel stressed about on our big day. <3

I was a senior 10 years ago and no one had them. I’ve only seem them on corsets and ren fair costumes.
OP: If you don’t like the corset back then don’t try any of them on. Crisis adverted. But then, show us a photo of your dress so that we can start a “I don’t get ____” thread and get others to agree. ^_^

I am also not offended by the fact that not everyone loves the back of my dress, tastes are different.
@Jeannine @ Small Chic:
You don’t have to like them, however I find it wildly unnecessary when someone refers to a gown (which includes my own) as low-end.
To clarify designers like Reem Acra, Caroline Hererra, Amsale and Oscar de la Renta may not include the corset back but the corset is in fact still there, they just cover it up. I cannot even begin to count how many of their dresses look like an obvious corset on top/in front and have the corset boning lines running down the front of the dresses. Corsets apply to all designers expensive or “low-end” it is a matter of taste and personal preference, not budget and proper construction.

Not even engaged. Well then I hope when it’s time for her to go dress shopping that she finds the dress of her dreams. Even if by then it’s a velcro back. Or snaps. Or MAGNETS! Omg magnets.
Look, it doesn’t matter how much it cost, who’s label is on it, what color it is, how long it is, how it closes on your back… this is so personal of a decision that topics and discussions like this really don’t make any sense. It’s brought out some nasty comments from others, and it’s probably offended a few people as well. Can’t we all just… get along?

i wanted a corset, mostly because Fiance likes the corset backs, and because they cinch in my pear non-waist nicely, lol. i’m probably going to go the bridesmaid route though, and they lack the boning/structure for a corset to work nicely like that. the current frontrunner is pleated down/around the zipper back and it’s SO pretty, but the buttons sewn next to the zipper kind of bug me. i wish i could get a corset put in it! maybe if i have them sew a longline bra in too…hm. things to think about. i wonder if they can match the color with a corset back if i get a blue dress.
damn. why can’t i just want a normal dress like everyone else? causing problems for myself! lol.

Haha so was I:) I did not ever see corset backs on dresses! Mine was a zip up:) Good ol’ senior prom! But to sum it up, to each their own!!

It was pretty hysterical. I did kind of feel bad for her though. I think it was more “I want to look as tiny as possible so make it as tight as possible- I don’t care if I can’t breath” over quality. I’m looking through my facebook to see if I can find a picture 😉

Sign me up for Velcro, that would keep the Fiance entertained all freaking night long. Can my whole dress be velcro? I will be my own personal guestbook.

well she isnt engaged but she bought a dress already… and it doesnt have a corset back…which i guess entitles her to bring up how no one likes corset dresses 🙂

I hear that! After buying my dress with a corset I laughed and said “hey, I could eat a freaking chicken dinner and no one would know it. This stomach isn’t pooching!” If you can’t breathe it is just tight enough.

I dont think i COULD eat once i had the dress on!! Corsets are brilliant ! :p
