I think the sleeves add an extra special touch to an already lovely dress!

The straps (sleeves) are beautiful!

Also if 1 out of 2 ppl say the dress won’t hold, that’s probably enough for me to say it’s not a good idea to try.

The straps look like an overlay and not integral to the structure to the dress, but I guess that depends on how much boning and structure is in the bodice.  It looks like quite a bit from the one picture, or at the very least could be added.  The ones specializing in wedding dresses are probably correct in that.

On the other hand, removing that pretty much just makes that your average sweetheart strapless mermaid dress – there’s hundreds of them out there.  So I’d either go with this dress as is or just find yourself one of the hundreds of sweetheart mermaids out there that are already designed to be strapless and not take the chance that you’re causing yourself more hassle and potential wardrobe malfunction.

I’d keep the straps unless they actually don’t suit you

I normally am not a fan of sleeves, but they look great with this dress. Keep them for sure!

I love the sleeves, I think it adds some balance to the dress.

It hasn’t got sleeves. It’s actually even  described as sleeveless. Do you mean the straps ? If so, I’d leave them as it , it makes for a nice little difference.
