    Personally, I love the buttons on my dress, but I don’t know that I love them *enough* that I’d pay extra for them if they weren’t standard.  I feel like they’re kind of an easy-to-overlook detail outside of getting-ready pics, you know?  I also hadn’t thought about the sitting on them part…yikes! πŸ˜›


    Anyway, you look amazing in that dress without adding a single thing to it.

    My dress is also a trumpet all lace gown that doesnt have any crystal or beading accents. I paid the extra money to have it made with buttons that wll start all the way from the top and will go alll they way down.. I LOVE button accents and purposly stayed away from the corset style dresses so that I could have my buttons.


    So, to answer your question, DO IT Laughing



    Gorgeous dress and amazing figure, btw!

    Yes! I will be adding buttons down my lace mermaid…I think all the way to the tip of the train. It already has some to the end of the zipper but that’s not enough for me! Do it!

    You look awesome in that dress. I don’t think it needs buttons (it is already beautiful), but if you want them go for it!

    Just a thought – are you planning to have your seamstress alter your dress so that you can still shimmy it up to pee or do you want it very fitted (necessitating removal if you need to use the bathroom)? 

    It’s something that’s playing on my mind with my mermaid dress but mine has a corset back so removal is definitely not convenient – nor would it be with buttons!
