I tried on the Casablanca 1975 and loved it. My bridal consultant knew I wanted a strapless dress and informed me immediately that it could be ordered with a strapless top for $150 extra (which is totally fine by me!).
I have seen some Bees on her with it, but they bought the dress with straps and had them removed. While the dresses looked gorgeous on the brides, simply taking off the straps didn’t seem to look right (to me…only an opinion!). Especially since the back has such a deep V and the front has lace applique that was just left poking out.
If anyone ORDERED the dress with the dress strapless, can you please post pictures? I’d like to see the craftsmanship of it before I order (if possible).

I went on the hunt for this dress pre-owned earlier today for another bee looking desperately for this dress and noticed that one of the photos of it was strapless!
The last thumbnail photo is a strapless one. Hope this helps!

I ordered it strapless but I haven’t gotten it yet. Casablanca is really flexible in terms of adjustments you can make to the dress. I ordered mine strapless with a 1/4″ of scalloped lace around the edge and I kept the deep-V in the back. Some brides choose to leave the “points” leading up to where the straps attach but you’d have to put boning or something underneath to keep it up. My consultant (and other brides on here) say going strapless on the dress is no problem. Sorry I dont have pics but check out the Casablanca thread, you’ll see some pics there.

@laceandpearls10: Yes, those pointy parts on the front of the strapless is DEF not the look I’m going for. Good to know they are flexible with the top! Thanks!
@pengoala: Thank you! 🙂

@MusicBee76: the pic you saw of me was the dress WITH straps but I tucked them down to get a visual which is probably what the other bees were doing too. That applicay poking up won’t be there if you order it in strapless. It is specially made. Also, I’d look at different places to order it and compare costs, it only costed me $80 to order it in strapless through my place. Just a heads up 🙂

Here is me in the Casablanca 1975….it is my dress! 🙂 I ordered it this weekend in strapless. They were also able to measure me and for $70 extra I will have a custom cut gown to fit my body. Not a bad deal! 🙂 So excited! I can’t wait for it to come in!!!
