When I tried the dress on, I fell in love with the idea of having straps but trying it on again at the fitting, I liked it without them & i know my fiance would like it strapless as well. Problem is I have a 32A chest and wasn’t thinking about the gap or even wearing strapless but the sales rep did her job & said that when it’s altered, it’ll fit perfect.

It looks lovely on you without the straps. If you are comfortable with it that way, I would keep it. It’s the way the dress was designed and meant to be worn!

I normally go for strapless, but I do like those straps!

It looks lovely on you without the straps. They’ll be able to put padded cups into the dress to fill that area – I had it with mine and it worked perfectly, so you wont need a bra or anything like that. It looks very serene on you! I see it’s your first post, welcome to Weddingbee, good luck with the other elements of your preparations.

A strapless dress stays up with proper tailoring around your waist- think “can’t fall down,” not “can’t stay up.” When you get it altered, between adding cups if you want them and fitting the waist to your dimensions, your seamstress will prevent a wardrobe malfunction. If you wanted straps because you were worried about unscheduled entertainment at your wedding, you can rest assured. 🙂
I think it looks great strapless but the straps are pretty too. If you like them for their own sake, go for it! If you decide you hate them once they’re attached you can always take them back out.

My dress has similar straps and I love them. I thought it would give my dress more support, but in fact the seamstress said the support like others have mentioned comes from the bodice, cups, boning etc. I think shape of the neckline in your dress is perfect for straps. I think they add a beautiful finishing touch and make your dress unique. That being said, I think the strapless look works great as well.

Can you wait for it to arrive, see how it fits, and then add straps? Once it’s altered and has cups inserted there shouldn’t be a gap either way.

I think your seamstress should be able to fit it to your chest. I am 32A as well, so I know how it goes. I think when you add straps to a dress designed to be strapless, it always looks like it. In other words, the straps always look added on.

with the way the cups are pointed at the ends, I think the straps complement this! I vote yes on straps!
