Do I add straps or keep strapless?

Straps would do nothing to support you since the dress is built to be strapless. The straps you would add would merely be decorative. I’d keep it strapless. You just need awesome foundation garments.

As far as I can tell (since the picture is sideways), you looks great.

If the dress is fitted to you, there’s no way it will fall. One thing you can do, though, is have your seamstress put velcro to attach the dress to the longline bra. Then it won’t spin even a 1/4 inch or anything.

@nikkit722: I added straps on mine, which is similar to yours (BEAUTIFUL dress, btw! You look stunning!). I knew the dress was made to be strapless and probably would’ve been fine, so it was really more psychological. I had so many other things to worry about that adding straps was a super easy (and pretty!) way to not even have to think about the dress slipping down.

I think it looks awesome strapless.  I’m a DD cup and have the same worries of falling out- my dressmaker assured me i’d be fine with the cups sewn in.

By the way, I was a 38DD when I got married.

@nikkit722:  you would only need to add straps if you prefer them for the confidence factor, or if you want to look taller. As the PP said, so long as the dress is well boned and reasonably high at the back, it should support you without straps.
