I went strapless because my shoulders are the thinnest part of my body!  I should show ’em off.  Lol.  Ok, well that and the fact that my Fiance always says he loves them.  I have no idea why but whatev 🙂

I tried on a bunch of different styles and realized that strapless was the most flattering on me.  I had gone in thinking that I would end up with something halter or even boatneck, but strapless dresses just looked the best.

My dress wasn’t strapless. I don’t think I’ve ever worn anything strapless, really. Just not my style. I did try on some strapless dresses, and there were a handful of them that I actually liked, but if I’d gone with a strapless dress I would have added straps to it to make me feel more comfortable. I ended up buying a dress that was a v-neck halter top, which I had altered into a v-neck tank top (changing the halter strap to two straps).

I went with straps Laughing

I knew I wanted straps or cap sleeves or something to kind of add a little ‘somethin somethin’  to my shoulders.  My clavicle bones don’t show and as a result I have always been very self cautious in anything strapless – it always makes me feel very bulky and or broad.  That didn’t stop me from trying on a butt load of strapless gowns; I kept a very open mind. It just so happened that the gown I feel in love with and will be wearing has strap  Laughing

i would just try on tons of different styles to find the one that you like best on!  I knew I wanted strapless because I love wearing strapless dresses, but trying on is the best way to know if you’re unsure

I say straps!  My dress is a skinny strap V-neck.  I did not want to deal with having to pull up a strapless dress the night of my wedding.  I think vneck is more flattering than halter if you have broad shoulders.

I went with strapless because I have wide shoulders, and I found anything with straps just emphasized that!
