    I say leave the halter strap off, the dress is gorgeous! 🙂 I wouldn’t change the neck line either-but that’s just me.

    If you would like, I would be happy to help you visualize these changes by altering the pictures in photoshop if you have the copyright rights to them of course.  just PM me and I would love to show you what these alterations could look like.

    I’m a sucker for a lace up back (my Future Mother-In-Law is making the lace to match our wedding colors) but I honestly don’t think your dress needs it.  It fits you like a glove and is stunning on you!  So no changes imo!

    I’d keep the neckline as is! (And leave the back alone).

    Your front already looks like a slight sweetheart neckline to me (but not on the model), so I’d leave the neckline as is.  It doesn’t look straight across.

    I’d take off the halter straps.

    I’d leave the back as is.

    I would leave the neckline and the back alone.  The neckline already looks like a slight sweetheart (any more of a dip would be too much).  

    With the way the fabric drapes to the side on the back, the zipper being a clean, simple closure is best.  Adding a lace up back will make it too busy looking.

    @hanzabelle: It’s a gorgeous dress and you look great! If you wanted to modify the back, instead of a corset what about making a bit of a dip or V? Kinda like this picture.
