Definitely strapless and mermaid styles that are snug through the hips. Ironically, neither trend is particularly friendly to most people. The difference between strapless now versus in the past is that it is difficult to find a dress WITH sleeves now, whereas in the past strapless was an option. Now it is everywhere to the extent that people have to either have straps or sleeves made and added to the gown. And long sleeves are unheard of now.
