@lauren.dalton.12:  Its beautiful! I dont think it would work as a strapless though. Its very loose and doesnt have any boning, so I dont think it would stay up very well.

Beautiful! I think it would look great with a sweetheart neckline, though I would add lacey straps/sleeves rather than going sleeveless. But whatever you do, you look incredible!!

Love it!  Don’t take away the straps though, it would lose the 20’s vintage look;)

I absolutely love it. It’s stunning and unique.

It doesn’t seem to have the structure to make it strapless and it would definitely need boning added. I have to say, I love it with straps. You could either keep those or add a different strap (maybe a thicker lace strap would be beautiful).

I like it the way it is. It looks fantastic and I wouldn’t add the sweetheart. The neckline and dress looks sophisticated and beautiful!

Just some side hem alteration and you’re ready to dazzle! Gorgeous find! Love the 1920s vibe. I’d vote for keeping it as is and find accessories to complement it.

@allyfally:  This.

This dress is not made to be strapless.
