@vmec:Ha, I totally have buttons and a zipper. I don’t care, I think my dress looks lovely. I seriously doubt anyone seeing me in my dress, is going to think to themselves, “Oh, how tacky, buttons AND a zipper.” I think they’re going to be thinking, “Damn, she looks gooooood!”

For those who haven’t seen the back of my dress:

My point: if you look and feel good in your dress, it doesn’t really matter what kind of closure the dress has. You’re going to look good in it.

I’m not a big fan of external corsets. I don’t say not to wear them, but they didn’t do a lot for me. I wanted bridal buttons and that’s what I’m having.

To the girls who say they want it for the shape, I’m wearing a serious tight-lacing corset underneath and will have a FABULOUS shape.

The Pronovias and San Patrick dresses I tried on also came with an internal corset for those who like the shape but not the look of corset-back.

@UpstateCait: You look TINY!!!!!  I definitely agree that corsets are amazing for that very reason.  Plus skipping alterations is awesome 🙂 

I wish my dress had a inside corest (I think I’ve heard some have them, but never actually saw one).  Would love to have that tiny, tiny waist.  Oh well!

I love my corset back dress, it does an amazing job of accentuating my waist and gives me great supprt. Plus I love that it’s not a big deal if I gain or lose a bit of weight leading up to the wedding. I certainly don’t think that makes my dress low end. Oh, and since when it Maggie Sottero low end? I wouldn’t call a dress over 1k cheap, and my seamstress herself said the lace and tulle used in it are extremely high quality.

I have always liked corset backs and my DH told me before we got married that he really liked them on wedding dresses. So while I didn’t purposely pick a gown with one, I was happy that the dress I fell in love with had one because I knew he would like it.
