Fell in love with a dress that doesn't want me to dance

You’re not going to be raising your arms above your head in a well-fitting strapless gown either, unless you want your boobs out. Minimize the bhangra or raising the roof and you can still dance the night away!

In effect, the first one with the off the shoulder straps is just fabulously timeless and classy. It’s also elongating on the body.

They may be the same dress, but they sure look different to me. I love the first one. The second one just looks like any other generic strapless dress :-/ I think I’d sacrifice and choose #1.

I think that the first one is far classier than the second. Would it be possible for them to alter the dress to be tip of the shoulder instead of off the shoulder to increase your range of motion?

Just a crazy idea, but maybe you could have an elastic section put into the straps in the back where they connect with the bodice? I bet a good seamstress could do it invisibly. Especially if you order it big so the straps are long and then you could hide the elastic in the bodice. If it was the same color and width of the straps, I bet no one would notice when you’re dancing.

I say try to make 1 work – it is so pretty! I’m a Romona Keveza bride too! If there’s an issue raising your arms high enough to dance, perhaps that can be addressed in alterations.

assuming you want to try on the other dress, could you call around and see if any other stores have it or could get it w/o charging you?
