    I like the simplicity of the current straps in the front, but the lace is really pretty in the back. Maybe you could sort of do it half and half, with the lace starting around the top of the shoulder and sort of gradually blending into the plan strap?

    Could it be strapless? I think the current straps look like the type that are there to hang the dress up.

    The way the back looks it almost looks like the dress was much, much larger and was altered down.. but they never did anything with the straps.

    I would certainly change them because it doesn’t look quite right.

    @MrsBobcat:  Could you just add some tulle/organza material underneath the current straps to thicken them up (since it matches the cummerbund fabric)? The lace straps you posted look a bit of a mess and detract from the dress.

    ETA: You can also copy Casablanca 1975 and add some lace appliques/organza lace to the straps in a graduated pattern:
