Hi, Bees! My dress is from David’s Bridal’s Galina collection, and for the most part, I love it. The only issue I have is that I feel very…exposed, with a strapless dress! Not that I’m against them at all, I just feel like I’ll be more comfortable with some kind of strap, even if it’s just for looks rather than support.
Originally I had planned to wear my hair down, which covered enough of my chest and shoulders for me to feel comfortable keeping it strapless, but now I’m thinking I’d like some kind of updo or half-updo, which means I’d like to add a strap or two. What kind of strap do you think would be best with this style?
Thank you! 🙂

That’s my dress, too! I’m thinking about having the length cut off from the hem turned into removable straps. I love the strapless for the ceremony, but I’m a little worried about the dress falling over the rest of the day. The image I have in my head has straps that are gathered in the front and spread out a little wider in the back. I don’t know if it’ll be possible; I haven’t had any fittings yet.

I tried on that dress too. IIRC, it’s pretty structured in the front, so you shouldn’t have to worry about it falling down. What about a bolero?

Loved that dress when I tried it on! Just in case you’re wondering, it’s very structured. Plus, if you got it with the bodice, it helps keeping everyhting in place. PLUS the dress is super light. So you’re right when you say it’s more about the looks.
I have the same dilemma with the strapless. For that dress I’d do spaghetti straps. Something really delicate that doesn’t outshine the dress. AND you have a beautiful neckline and shoulders, so don’t hide them!

I think cap sleeves or beaded spaghetti straps would look really nice. Definitely do two to keep things symmetrical.
