Really?  I’ve never seen a bra strap showing with a wedding dress (at an actual wedding – obviously fittings and dress shopping are different stories).

But I can say I would dislike the look.

I haven’t noticed bra straps showing during real weddings, but I have recently noticed tan lines, which I think is a little odd– but to each her own!

The only time I’ve seen bra straps at a wedding I’m pretty sure was not intentional. I didn’t know that was a thing…

ha..Mr M laughs at me when I play fashion police and make a comment about bra straps sticking out. I think its very tacky..esp when gals will wear a tank top and the straps are no where even close to covering the bra!

I cant imagine anyone being OK with it bra straps showing outside of a wedding gown!

There was an episode of Bridezillas where the bride wore a strapless gown with a regular bra. It did not look good.

I’ve never seen anyone do that before. o_o… I’d say major faux pas.

On a wedding dress?–yuck, wow!

In general–meh. It’s a little tacky, but it depends on how it’s done and what the person is wearing. I don’t think it looks good but there are so many things that are 100 times worse.

I have one sundress that has a lacey part on the back. If I wear a regular bra about 1 inch of my bra strap shows covered by the lacey/knitting part. I just wear a nude bra and I doubt it’s very noticeable.

With a regular tank top I don’t think it’s a huge deal. Maybe I care less about it because I’m from a beach area and a lot of times it’s hard to tell if you’re wearing a swimsuit under a tank top or sun dress or a regular bra.

But yea, with a wedding dress that’s pretty bad. I’ve never seen it before though.

wow. I have NEVER seen that. And I’m sure if I did, I would be some combination of disgusted and horrified! (but, hey, to each her own…)

The worse I’ve seen was a bride who hade the long strapless type bra was sticking out about two inches on both sides and about a half inch in the front and back. She never had the dress altered “because it fit perfectly” and she didn’t need it so the whole bodice slid down on her and she never pulled it back up. It looked so trashy.
