Is anyone going with an open corset? I’ve basically only seen pictures with the flap behind the ribbon, but I heard that my dress is HOT. I’m wondering how it would look if I didn’t use that flap for coversage just so I could get some air conditioning.
Anyone doing this and have pictures to share? I think it would look gorgeous but just haven’t seen it that way on any brides!

Do you have any pics of your dress?
I have David’s Bridal V9665 but it has the flap on it so I’ll be using it just how it came.

I like the open corset look! It’s sexy but not revealing a lot. Mine has the modesty panel on it but I am still debating if I want to use it or not. Not my dress but it shows an open corset on the other pic….although with that price I wish that was the price of my dress! 😛
Well both of those dresses do!
I would totally go for it if I were you, especially if it’s going to be hot!

I don’t think having the corset open would make that much difference in terms of temperature. I like how my dress looks much better with the panel.

I personally really don’t care for the look of open corsets on wedding dresses. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one that looked better without the modesty panel than with the modesty panel.
I think there is a time and place for hot and sexy and semi-revealing but a wedding should be more classy and elegent and I think that open corsets just give off the wrong feel to a wedding gown.

I prefer the look of modesty panels. I think too often the open corset looks like the gown doesn’t fit properly, but I have also seen pictures where it looks nice, so really its up to personal preferences.

I love the look of them open!

I’m using the modesty panel in mine for sure. Looks clean and pretty and doesn’t raise question of whether the dress actually fits.

It also depends on how far down your corset goes. There was a post recently where a bride’s corset went down to her bum-area and wouldn’t really be appropriate to be open. So that’s a consideration too.

I agree, it won’t make that much difference in terms of temperature. I guess it really comes down to a matter of personal preferance. I do not care for the look, personally.

mine has a lil built one that doesn’t come up all the way, but i am not using the additional modesty piece for the 3/4 of the corset. i think it’s tight enough where it doesn’t show much skin and it’s not too low cut… and i like the look better without the modesty piece…

My corset goes down my bum!! So it has two modesty panels, one above and below. So if I wanted too I could cover my bum and leave my back open. I think you just have to try it and take some pictures. Then you can decide.

My dress (Ella Rosa B86) does not have a modesty panel. I thought about having one made from the material that is hemmed off, but I prefer it without! 😀

I prefer corsets of all sorts open. That’s how they were supposed to be worn!!! Ok, technically, they were worn over a chemise, but still… If it were me, it’d be open, but I prefer that look regardless. It has a more romantic fantasy-type appearance. And besides, it’s your back, not your front and many MANY formal gowns are backless. No back down to the waist. if you can wear THAT to a formal dinner/restaurant/gathering, why not an open corset to a wedding???

my personal opinion would be to have the placket behind the lacing. i think it makes for a more finished and classy look.
