I have a strapless dress, and was 100% sure I wanted to add capped sleeves as never thought I looked too good in strapless things. I would really appreciate unbiased opinions of what looks better here! Wedding on Friday, can’t decide, quite stressed :oS Friends and family great, they tell me it all looks great but would love some input from elsewhere.
Thank you! x

Personally I like it WAY better with the sleeves.
Not only do I just like the way it looks better, but honestly, without the sleeves it kind of looks like it’s about to fall off In My Humble Opinion.

I agree it looks better with the sleeves, I would be worried about it sliding and having to pull it up all night without the sleeves

I LOVE the capped sleeves! Really, really love them on this dress and you. You should add a poll.

I like the strapless look best. If the dress was originally engineered to be strapless, and you simply added the sleeves as a non-structural, decorative element, I do not think you need to wear them.

Thanks guys, appreciate your comments.
It is designed to be strapless so it’s pretty solid and doesn’t slip down without the sleeves. They are just for the look.

I love the cap sleeves. Then again I am partial to sleeves and ordered a dress with sleeves for this reason. I feel like the strapless thing is so trendy and that in 30 years we will all look back and be like, “what were we thinking.” Plus you will be more comfortable.
