AMEN! Like I said, they’re not my taste, but my Future Sister-In-Law had one, loved it, and she looked beautiful! I never would take away her joy from her dress just because it wasn’t the dress of MY dreams.
We are never going to all agree on dress styles, so we should give up on that idea. I just don’t think people need to be so mean about their opinions.
(For the record, I hope my first post didn’t offend anyone!!)

I realize that plenty of folks don’t share my opinion (FWIW, I used the words “I associate”). That’s cool…we’re sharing opinions and I don’t think we’re trying to come to a consensus, right?
I participated in a thread where someone said she was fed up with one-shoulder gowns. I happen to have a one-shoulder gown that I love, but I didn’t feel offended by her comment.
There’s so much variety in bridal fashion these days that there are apt to be differences in opinion about styles and elements. This is why I find fashion so fun to talk about.

@Jeannine @ Small Chic:
While I agree with what you just said and i do think people are entitled to their opionon, its one thing to say “I dont have a thing for one shouldered dresses” and another to say “One shoulder dresses just make me think they are from the lower end of bridal gowns” aka cheap!

Now some of you bees are being very rude about the OP. I didn’t see anything she said as being rude. She said ‘I don’t know what it is about them but I’m not a big fan’ What’s bad about saying that? And for the bee who asked what’s the use of this thread, I could pull up at least 5 threads on the front page that are so pointless it’s weepworthy but hey, it’s wedding related so there you are. Anyhow, I see people asking about things on the bee that they don’t like and they are things I like. I don’t find it rude or snarky. I think you could read her first post anyhow you want to. I personally didn’t find her question rude. She’s not into them, she’s not. Some folks don’t like lace, satin, pick ups, mermaids, one shoulders, strapless, corsets, beadings, sashes, colored crinolines etc. These are going to affect one or more aspects of someone’s dress. Let’s be nice.
I usually love your posts, but you are being mean to the OP. It’s not necessary to make fun of her for not being engaged NOR did she say that no one loves corset backed dresses.

We can analyze this to bits. I don’t think anyone here should get picked on for sharing an opinion and why she has it.

Im pretty sure her thread is
Does anyone else NOT LIKE corset dresses
And you are probably right to like most of my posts…im usualyl in a better mood…boviously not today. I guess im just tired of people starting threads like this..i never usually get offended but it just seems non ending, why do we always have to point out something we dont like on other peoples dresses…whats the point…and i was doing okay with this thread until @Jeannine @ Small Chic:
dumped on about how “corsets remind of her of low quality dresses like maggie etc:….
Seriosuly…put yourself in someones shoes who just got to read a post about how cheap her dress is an how no one likes it…
Oh and i wasnt making fun of her for being engaged…someone just made the comment about her finding a dress and i pointed out that this person…who started a thread,, who must have known that it would cause some heat, isnt even engaged…has never gone through thte process of picking a perfect dress…only to come to a place that she usually finds sfety in to see a thread where someone talks about how cheap her dress is….

i was more concerned with how the front of my dress looked and how it fit me overall. whether it had a corset or not was no issue. it actually added more stress since i had no one with me at my fittings that was coming to my wedding. i ended up getting another friend to come to a fitting and videotape the seamstress tying it up and explaining so i could show my BMs in Jamaica.
although i do the like the look of corsets, so it never turned me off any dresses. and i also tried on a ton without corsets.

I just don’t lke when they end with a big bow on the butt. Otherwise I think they can be nice with some dresses.
Post # 69
LOL. That’s why they’re so long..so you can tuck them in the opening!

Agreed. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, however I think it comes down to wording. Clearly the words used were a bit inflammatory.
In the end the argument was irrelevant as I clearly pointed out in my previous post. Some of the most expensive designers have corsets (including those listed) and often leave them exposed and obvious so I’m not sure how the association comes about. While you don’t have to enjoy or like the appearance of corset backs it has nothing to do with the quality of the dress.

Before I started dress shopping I didn’t really have much of an opinion on the matter. I had heard that corsets would do a better job of sucking me in so I definitely had planned to try some but it wasn’t something that I set out specifically to buy. After trying on various different styles I soon discovered that corsets are fucking amazing.
A corset made size 24 me look like this…
Not to toot my own horn or anything but when I look at this picture, it doesn’t even look like me. THAT’S how much of an impact a simple corset had made.
For the record, there are tooooooooons of things that I’m totally sick of or simply don’t like but I don’t feel the need to start a thread about them. Everyone has their own style so I don’t see why others have to criticize it.

i wasn’t a fan of the bow on butt either, and i was pleasantly happy when my seamstress showed me how to tuck it in. looked so much better for my dress.
and woah, i just went back up and read Jeannine @ Small Chic
‘s comment too and i find it pretty harsh and unneccessary, my jaw dropped a bit when i saw she called Maggie and David’s Bridal dresses “low end”….um, i haven’t done a study, but i would guess that about 85% of the bee have dresse by those two designers combined!

i remember seeing that pic before – you look awesome!
Post # 74
For the record everyone, I totally didn’t post my picture just so I could get attention, I posted it to show what a corset can really do. It really does work miracles!
