    I know spaghetti straps would make me look like a linebacker so I couldn’t choose that option.  I think the off the shoulder look would look pretty especially when it is altered to you

    I like the sleeves the way they are in the original pic – do you have a pic of them like that on you.  I am not a fan of spaghetti straps!  And you’re right that is a lot of dress to just top it off with skinny straps!

    I like the spaghetti straps, but only if you try on a similar dress with spaghetti straps and like the look. Otherwise I would go with the original sleeves

    I don’t really know if this would work or if you’d be as comfortable with it but I think I’d prefer to see the dress strapless and make it into a nice sweetheart.  If you want something on your shoulders I prefer the skinny straps as in your picture.  I don’t feel like the spagetti straps would be as flattering.

    @Sunnybrook:  Can you do the alterations that would make the dress itself fit you and THEN deal with the straps?

    It might be easier to see how it will look on you with different straps if it fits to begin with.

    I like @beeberonibri:  ‘s idea of making it a sweetheart most of all the options right now 🙂

    I like the off the shoulder – I think it’s flattering to have your shoulders showing. It will also look better when altered.

    I don’t care for spaghetti straps in general on any dress.

    Don’t have 2nd thoughts – it’s a beautiful dress.

    @Sunnybrook:  Why don’t you like corsets?

    @Sunnybrook:  HAHA!  Well I can understand that!  I’m in love with my corset, altho I really like the way the buttons look to. 

    Mine has crystals all the way around and this is what it looks like at the corset (just for your consideration) 🙂
