    What do you prefer on a dress? Zipper, corset, zipper with button detail?
    I am looking at the dress and the back is like the picture from  http://www.inwedding...tyle-bc082.html.  I thought I wanted a corset back but now I'm second guessing it.

    i LOVED my corset back. i ended up losing some weight before the wedding and it still fit perfect because i could adjust the laces to fit all the way from the waist to the top.


    you could always have a dress altered to add a corset back, if you have time/$ to deal with it! a lot of girls have done this.

      I would prefer a zippered back and just have it altered to fit me right....thats one less thing to fight with while getting ready...

        I love the corset backs too! As Abbie said it's easy with adjusting.

        That dress is pretty & cheap!!! Great for a DW

          Zipper w/ buttons all the way! It just looks clean and neat. I think corsets look like you're hemmed up in a cage, lol. To each her own though.

          When I was searching for my dress I really didn't have a preference to either.  I ended up buying a dress with a corset back and I really love the way it looks, also, it really helps to accent my curves when It is done up properly.  Also, If I lose or gain any weight it will be good to have a corset back.  I think it also depends on the dress style you decide to go with.

            I like all sorts of backs it really just depends on the dress.

              I don't think I'm partial to any of them! I guess it just depends on the style of dress.

                I am a button and zipper girl all the way.  I just love the look of it.  Thats not to say that some dresses really suit a corset and look really good as well.
