I read on a photographers website to “beware of the strapless dress: strapless dresses only flatter a very small percentage of REAL people…” and that got me thinking, I wonder what style dress everyone went with. I personally got a strapless dress & I love it!
Which neckline style did you go with?

I had a Sweetheart neckline (still strapless). Looked completely fine on me. One way to avoid the back fat is to have the dress fitted properly and stand up straight.

Mine is V-neck. I’m a big fan of straps.

Mine is V neck, I’m pretty small up top and needed some help to create the illusion of cleavage

I went with the sweetheart neckline for this reason. I didn’t seem to give me that under arm fat like the straight across neckline did. But since 98% of the dresses out there are strapless I do have a strapless gown.

Mine was sweetheart AND strapless…but I put sweetheart because I think that’s more of a neckline style and strapless is a dress style.

Mine is strapless. I agree that some strapless dresses don’t suit some people but I think that also has a lot to do with the fabric and the cut and the physical shape of the person wearing it.

is this off the shoulder or sweetheart?

I’m not sure what mine is, it’s like a combination between sweetheart and v-neck. It is strapless, but the neckline isn’t rounded like a sweetheart, but more triangular like a v-neck.
Yeah, I don’t really like straight cut across strapless dresses either, they aren’t flattering on many people. I like sweetheart a lot.

@coffeekitty: I think it’s both! Mine is two different things as well.

@coffeekitty, I’d say off the shoulder and v neck, it’s not as round as a sweetheart. But in the poll I’d classify it as off the shoulder. (very pretty by the way!)

I tend to agree that the strapless trend isn’t flattering on a lot of people, but it’s just so freakin’ popular that it’s a style that most brides end up with b/c of inventory. My dress was V-neck, though I didn’t love the cut, it looked pretty good and was comfortable – no adjusting all night 🙂
