    Your dress is gorgeous!  Really!  Adding straps won’t add anything spectacular, in my opinion, and will only hide your nice shoulders.  I was intending for my dress to be something else than what I bought, and I go back and forth on it, but when it works, it works!  Maybe add a statement necklace or something?  You look beautiful!

    I think it could look good either way.  My only suggestion would be that if you stay strapless, then I recommend a statement necklace.

    i’m in the same boat as you I wanted straps I knew that if i got a strapless dress id add cap sleeves or something.

    I  find “the one” and its strapless and  i love the dress better with out straps. I had the consultant add the straps to see how it would look a nd i was like no way i bought the dress with out straps because it was the dress for me the way it is.

    pearls will be beautiful with that (and can classify as a statement piece because they’ll pop unlike a thin chain).  yay for you!

    Is that a Paloma? I love it strapless. I would say if the straps make you more comfortable then go for it but I love the look of it the way it is

    I almost bought that dress, that was my runner up! I love it the way it is, and the belt is a great addition. If you feel more comfortable in straps, then add them.. but I think it’s gorgeous the way it is!

    I think it looks good strapless.  You look amazing in it.

    I added straps to my dress.  I loved the dress and then when we held up the straps to it, it was like oh yes, this is my dress!

    The strapless looks MUCH better, otherwise it just looks like a strapless dress with straps added, kind of an after thought look going on, in my opinion.

    You look beautiful in the strapless its perfect for you.

    Personally, I’m terrified of strapless dresses… but then again I’ve got a lot going on up stairs if you know what I mean.  

    If it were mine, I would add straps– in fact that’s what I’m doing tonight with my own strapless dress. I was in a similar position, I never wanted a strapless dress, but I fell in love with the rest of it, so I figured it would be easy enough to add them later.
