I’ve seen quite a few people complaining that this is a fad and they hope it’s over (strapless wedding dresses). But I wanted to know if you just are wearing strapless for a wedding or is this how you usually dress?
I don’t remember the last time I’ve had a strapped dress, and I wear strapless tank tops all the time, oh and my bathing suits usually have no straps too. So buying a strapless dress was just natural to me. 🙂
How about you guys?
Also sorry about the repetitiveness of my poll!

I was certain that I didn’t want a strapless dress, and I only wear strapless things 1-2 times a year, but then when I went to try on dresses I just didn’t like the way any of the straps or sleeves looked on me. It wasn’t just that there were more options without straps- I am somewhat small, and any extra fabric on top made me look like I was trying to cover up.

I can’t relate since my dress has straps. But 97% of the dresses I tried were strapless and I rarely wear strapless items and it didn’t bother me one bit to consider a strapless dress.

I definitely don’t wear strapless often… I’m what one would call “busty,” and I feel more comfortable with the support of a bra and straps. My dress is strapless, but it has a built in security strap around my back. My dress isn’t going anywhere!
As for strapless being a fad… well, since I’ve seen the poofy sleeve “fad,” it could be much worse!!

I love strapless dresses but ended up with a wedding dress with spaghetti straps (which I normally hate). I had a strapless reception dress though. There are prob. 6 strapless dresses in my closet right now. I only own 1 tube top and one strapless bikini top, bought to avoid pre-wedding tan lines.

I wear strapless a lot. I have really broad shoulders, so straps tend to just make me look broader (especially skinny straps), so strapless was a no brainer to me.

I’m busty, so I don’t wear strapless very often. I also consider strapless to be a fairly formal look, and I don’t get that dressed up very often. When I do, though, it’s almost always a strapless dress for me! It’s been that way for almost a decade, too.

I wear stapless stuff fairly often… more so in college when I was doing more of the going out on the weekends. I have several dresses and tops I still wear. My wedding dress is strapless, too… which a lot of people dislike because of it’s popularity, but it is popular for a reason…a lot of strapless dresses ( when they fit right) look great!

I’ve worn 2 strapless dresses- ever, and one I added straps to the day of because I didn’t trust it to keep from flashing everyone. So my wedding dress was the only time anyone has seen me in strapless. I’m fairly busty so we had to sew my dress to the longline to assure there would be a degree of church appropriateness.

I’ve been wearing strapless dresses since college (10 years ago), so I’m not sure why strapless wedding dresses are a ‘fad’. But I dont normally wear strapless shirts and stuff because I dont like the feeling of it slipping and strapless bras since I dont have the chest for it. I went braless in my wedding dress so no problems there with it and it was fitted well enough that I didnt have to worry about it.

I wear strapless dresses every so often, but I don’t see how they are a fad. Strapless dresses have been popular for decades.

strapless dresses have been in what you would call “fancy” dress sections of stores for years now. Most of my homecoming/semi and prom dresses were strapless and some of those were over 10 years ago- they also ranged from macys to designers on newbury st. Also most of my collection on dresses for weddings/fancy nights our are strapless, I am a little busty as well as broad sholders and I think strapless looks best on most people. I can almost go to the point of saying I dont like thin straps or halters on anyone- on wedding dresses I feel like they cheapen the dress. I agree as well, I am very happy to be in this trend rather than puffy sleaves like my mom!

I don’t think it’s a fad.
Big boobed/wide shouldered girls look good in strapless dress and it helps balance us out.
I think with the explosion of super sexified wedding dresses out there, it just seems more popular as more girls are not afraid to sport that style on their big day
Do these sweater puppies look like Dear Daughter to you in this dress?

My dress was strapless, but I don’t normally wear strapless stuff. However I bought a ton of tube tops to wear for the year before the wedding so I wouldn’t get tan lines!

I wear strapless tops and dresses all the time. My bikinis are the ones that are convertable, I can remove the straps to make it strapless, love them.
