    It might be because the photos are taken at different angles, but I think adding the straps balances out the dress.

    Beautiful dress choice! Congrats! 🙂

    Beautiful dress! I agree with the PP, straps balance out the dress.

    Let me start with Beautiful Dress!!!  Love it on you!  Call me crazy but I like it more with out the straps…. I actually thought it was 2 different dresses at first.  Both look good just my opinion but your the one who has to love it either way it looks great!

    Beautiful either way! Really!

    I love the look without straps, and voted that way. I noticed you were “adorned” in the bust area, as am I. I will be wearing straps to feel safer, but if you feel comfortable, you look lovely both ways!

    Beautiful! I like it both ways, honestly. Whichever one you’re more comfortable in.

    Typically I prefer dresses with straps, especially on bigger-busted women, but I actually LOVE your dress in the 1st picture. I think it’s extremely flattering and very pretty and even though you say the sample was small in the chest, I think it looks great the way it is!

    Then again, if you feel more comfortable with the straps, the ones you would be getting look good too.

    Congrats on the dress!

    I vote for straps – we were just talking about straps vs. sleeveless at my shower yesterday and multiple girls said they lost some weight in the stressful weeks before the wedding and their strapless dress were a huge pain in the A. They had to keep pulling their dresses up all night – and they were even corset dresses, which are alleged to be more adjustable! I am wearing a dress with straps because I think it’ll be way more comfy, which is important to me for a dress I’ll be wearing at least 10 hours. But I honestly think you look fab in both pics so whichever your gut tells you!
