    Strapless, I like it a tad more and have more options to style with

    One shoulder, do not touch it!

    @cherryblossomlove:  WOW! Strapless is such a great look on you! I feel it is better than the strap, which is on the largish side.

    I am not often a fan of one-shoulder dresses but I actually LOVE yours. I like it much more with the strap than strapless. It’s gorgeous!

    I prefer this dress strapless, I feel like it would also give you more leeway when it comes to accessories, hairstyles etc. I always think one-shoulder gowns are very imited in being a very specific look. But I do agree with the PP who noted that the lines/ruching of the dress may not lend itself to being altered to a sweetheart. If I were you, I’d take the dress to the seamstress and ask for a professional opinion. Beautiful gown either way!

    Definitely one-shoulder. I have loved that dress on you since I first saw it on you. It has that elegance that you don’t see in a lot of wedding dresses – if you just went strapless it would no longer be unique.

    Also I feel that the one-shoulder makes you look taller and suits the hairstyle you have at the moment (sleek, sophisicated).

    I don’t generally agree with changing the design when it’s a designer like VW. In My Humble Opinion, the dress was designed that way for a reason. It’s an asymmetrical dress with an asymmetrical skirt and asymmetrical ruching – I really think the asymmetrical neckline fits so much better with the overall vision of the dress. Ir looka more disjointed with a sweetheart (also because it’s adding a rounded edge, when the dress is all asymmetry and flowing diagonal lines).

    I do think though that you should think about lowering the neckline a bit and making the strap bit, where it hits your shoulder, a bit narrower.

    It’s gorgeous either way, but I personally like it with the strap! Gives it that little extra unique quality.
