    Hey ladies!

    I have a question for you. All you ladies wearing a corset style wedding dress, are you going to wear the modesty flap or not?

    I'm deciding wether I want to or not, and don't know what the norm is. I don't want to wear it.

    Thoughts?

      I'm 1/2 and 1/2 on mine, too. I might go without - the model wearing my dress went w/o and it looked good!

        Good question!! I am debating whether or not to have a corset put into my dress or leave it as a zipper. I never thought about the modesty panel!

          I left the modesty panel in for the wedding and took it out for the TTD. It was very easy to remove. Plus I had both lace up straps, so I used the thin one with the modesty panel and the thick strap without the modesty panel

            I LOVE corset dresses, you totally should beacuse they are flattering on ALL bodies! And the nice thing is, depending on how hot of a body I get before Jamaica, haha, if I go up or down I can still wear the dress w/o alterations. That was the main reason why I went with corset.

            Plus it looks hot, ha!

            Definitely check with your dress. Some dresses the corset goes basically to the butt crack. So sometimes you have to have a little bit of a modisty panel. But otherwise, I love it both ways. So beautiful!

              That is exactly what was the case with mine...if I took the panel out my whole butt would have shown -I love the look of the panel out, but I kept mine in and it still looked awesome! Talk to your seamstress if you aren't sure.

                I agree with the previous responses, it totally depends on the dress. I actually have 2 different dresses and they are both corset backs. I got 2 because I didn't want the cost of cleaning my "real" dress before our reception back home. Our photographer also really wants to do a "trash the dress" shoot and again, I didn't want to trash my "real" dress. So my fake dress will be used to change into after the ceremony and I will still be able to feel like a bride but not have to worry about what happens to it...and I'm definately not upset about getting to wear the other dress twice!

                But sorry...back to your question...the one dress the corset goes down back my butt so I am keeping the piece in; the other dress has an upper and a lower panel and I am only going to use the lower panel.

                  I love the corset look, it's more forgiving than zipper. You can let it out or tie it up more (if needed at the last minute).
                  I would take my panel out totally if I could. I have a fairly large tatoo on my back lower middle that I don't want showing. So I'm going to have it removed up till that point just to cover it up.
                  I don't think there is a norm anymore, if you've seen some of the backless dresses now adays there is nothing wrong with going without the panel.
                  Good Luck with your dress!
                  Cheers,

                    Forgot to mention, my corset did go down to my butt, but from the TTD pictures you cant even notice (main reason for using the thicker lace-ups) and wore white underwear. I would of def not done this for the wedding though
