I have done some dress shopping in the past couple months and have left the two shops I went to feeling dejected and bad about myself. However, I recently had breast reduction surgery and am so excited to try on dresses in the next month or so! I do not want a strapless dress, that is just a criteria that is non-negotiable. I love the detailing you can get with sleeves: lace, ruffles, rhinestones….and I just feel more comfortable “covered up.” I’d love to see pics of other brides non-strapless dresses….please post pics if you’d be so inclined 🙂 Thanks ladies!!

Mine had small straps. I cut them off for the reception for fun. Good luck on your search!! There are some AMAZING dress with straps out there!

Ok, so I wasn’t entirely comfortable strapless either. But dresses with straps/sleeves are hard to come by. So I ordered a lace bolero and I also had a cozier sweater for the cold.

Tagging this so I can follow it. I need to get pics of my dress, it has long lace sleeves which Im thinking of having altered to elbow length. I think non-fluffy sleeves are so timeless.

I’m at work so I can’t post pictures but I wore an Allure dress with straps. Just wanted to say that I also was looking for only non-strapless dresses and had a lot of options with Allure.

I must have posted my dress on here 100 times but I will never pass up an opportunity to do it again because I love it so much lol
I was adamant about having straps on my dress, even though I am small busted. I’ve never been comfortable in strapless dresses, shirts, etc, so straps were a must. I was also becoming frustrated while shopping because SO many dresses are strapless and everyone just kept saying, “well you can add straps!” But I wanted to see it WITH the straps!
Finally I found one that was perfect!

I had a one shoulder dress and LOVED it. The strapless were uncomfortable to me, and just didn’t suit me. Here’s a pic 🙂

@lechevalnoir: I just asked the same thing in another thread! Love that sweater.
I added straps to my dress. Can’t wait to wear it in 8 days!

Straps were also a must for me, and I do have with straps, just no pictures of me in my actual dress yet (first fitting is in a few weeks)
But the real reason I wanted to post- Congrats on your reduction! I had one 6 years ago and it was the best decision I ever made in my life.

My dress was strapless when I bought it, because I got tired of the limited selection of dresses with straps– so I just had my seamstress add them to it.

Mine had a removable long-sleeved overdress, spaghetti straps underneath. I loved the versatility!
