    Ok, now that I’ve seen the front of the dress in your other thread… I’m even more in favor of keeping the dress as-is.   if you changed the back what would you do with the lace panels (darts?) in the front of the dress?  Would you replace them with sheer panels or what?

    I much prefer the dress as is and the lace is stunning.

    Hands down, #2. I don’t like the look of #1 at all.

    Low back or original! Illusion back looks off to me.

    I do love your dress as it is and the lace back is the first thing that draws me to this dress. Sorry for not helping =)

    Another one for leaving  the original back , it looks  lovely as -is . Neither of the suggested options is anywhere   near as nice imho.

    Not a fan of either, honestly. With this style of dress, the original lace back is much better than any of the other options, so definitely keep it as is.

    The illusion back looks a little creepy to me, kind of like a skeleton/spine. The low back looks lovely though, I prefer it over the original.

    wwmei :  Honestly bee, I love your dress and I love the original back the best.

    I get that with the high neck you might want to be more showy. The low back would be my second pick, but I feel that it could change the fit of the dress too much, and that wouldn’t be worth it IMO as the dress fits you amazingly and is such a classic, timeless style.

    Sorry, I know my post isn’t of much help, but I just really love your dress and how it fits you now.

    The dress is perfect as is. I wouldn’t change it.

    Yes, perfect as is. But if you are dead set on changing it, my vote goes to the low back.

    I find the dress to be the most appealing as it is. I really can’t pick between the other 2 options as I am not keen on either of them.
