The tulle is beautiful! I think it compliments the dress beautifully, where the lace looks heavy and a bit dated. I’d go with the tulle for sure!

Kula:  I like the shape of the lace with the look of the tulle. The tulle gets wider toward the bottom whereas the lace is wider at the top. I think the lace takes away from your dress, but the shape of the tulle straps isn’t as flattering. Would tulle straps that are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom be possible?

If you’re looking for something to draw attention away from your bust, I think you should go with the lace straps. They draw the eye towards your shoulders.

Lace! It’s beautiful and it looks like it belongs with the dress. The tulle looks like an after thought.

If you do tulle, what about a one shoulder like this one:

Tulle.  It’s classic and beautiful. IMHO, the lace is distracting (changes the shape, but if that’s the shape you like, more power to you!).

I actually like the lace better. The tulle seems out of place (in terms of material).

I like the lace and feel like it gives the desired effect.

LOVE the tulle! The lace is a pretty common look, while the tulle is unique and really dreamy!

The lace looks way better. The tulle makes it look off balanced, very bottom heavy. I think the lace keeps it balanced and actually makes you look taller and thinner.  What about lace but not as wide if that is an issue?

I prefer the lace, it looks like it shoudl actually be part of the dress, to me the tulle doesn’t fit your dress.  To each their own!
