It’s so pretty without straps! May I aks why you want to add them?

I wouldn’t add straps. It is gorgeous without them.

Are you sure the built in straps aren’t just for hanging it on a hanger?

I wouldn’t add straps.

I would guess the straps that are there are to hang it on the hanger.

Loose off the shoulder lace straps. That’s what I did for my dress. The alterations people used fabric they had to take off the bottom since my dress was so long!

I’d do beaded “spaghetti straps’- most Martina Liana look amazing with thin staps imo. That’s what I have on my dress as I also look better in a dress with straps vs. without.

I think thin straps would work, but I’d wear it strapless for the ceremony and then button, snap, or pull out the straps for the reception for extra support while your dancing and partying. With or without straps it’s a beautiful dress!!

Shoulder straps depend on your body type.  If you are broad shouldered with narrow hips (v-shaped), then thin straps will look out of proportion and call attention to the broadness of your shoulders.  Same with cap sleeves. If you’re narrow-shouldered, thin straps or cap sleeves would be more proportionate than thick sleeves.  If you’re hour glass then it could go either way.
