    I vote straps. For some reason I think it adds elegance.

    I think it looks better strapless in this picture, so I voted strapless.  But that said, if you will be more comfortable with the straps, then by all means wear them.  Also, you mentioned the top “puckers” when it’s strapless, and I don’t see any puckering in the picture.  I’m just basing my opinion off of the picture.  But if the people who can see the dress in real life are all unanimous that it is better with the straps, I’d probably listen to them.

    I say straps.  If you will feel the top of the dress is held down better with the straps and you will not be showing as much cleavage add the straps.

    I say that because I am rather busty myself and when I tried on my dress when it came in and both the seamstress and my mom said I needed the straps added to hold the dress better.  I am actually having 3 sets of spaghetti straps added and having them fan out across my back to attach to the dress.

    Do you have a more clear picture of how much it sticks out?  The straps do work – especially if it will take care of the issue you are having with the dress.

    the dress is beautiful, and a few small straps wont change that at all. if it makes you feel more comfortable, DEFINITELY do it, or you might be thinking (along with your nerves) on the day “why didn’t i put on the straps?”

    thats the last thing you want to worry about.

    Keep in mind, when YOU look down you see WAY more than someone who is viewing you from the front. We always think we’re showing off the gals more than we really are…

    I think it looks nice with th straps, so if wearing them will make your more comfortable, then I say go with it!

    I think it looks better without the straps, i didn’t get to vote, but it makes your shoulders look narrower. How about adding a discret piece of elastic to the inside of the top. Thats what my seamstress is trying before messing with the beading in my dress. If that doesn’t work we are going to mess with taking in the beading. But its worth a shot.
