Strapless Wedding Dress

Is a strapless wedding dress the right option for you? For many women, showing off the shoulders is the ideal choice. It is not too revealing and the straight neckline that often accompanies these types of dresses is often very flattering. For those who are looking at a wedding gown that is without straps, there are a few things to keep in mind. Of course, you should always try on these dresses to ensure they are just what you are looking for.

Strapless Or Not?

Should you go strapless with your wedding dress? In some cases, this is a great option since it allows the shoulders and arms to be free. Yet, not all women like to have their upper arms or their shoulders so exposed. Also, keep in mind that this may keep you a bit cooler than other types of dresses. That is fine during the summer months, but during the winter; you may wish to purchase a shawl to wear over the top of the dress. Many women select to wear a shawl during the church service, too.

Finding Flattering Dresses

No matter what shape your body is in, you can draw a lot of attention away from the bottom of your body if you select a strapless dress. Many strapless dresses will come in towards the waist or right under the waistline. This helps to take the attention off the thighs, midsection and backside of the dress. It can be a unique look for many women.

Also, keep in mind that your dress still has plenty of room for embellishments. You can select those dresses that have very intricate beading and sequence work on them or go with the dresses that offer a more detailed lace work over the top of the shoulders.

There are many options to consider for those looking for a strapless wedding dress. Be sure to compare a variety of designs until you find one that fits your body just the way you would like to. The good news is that many very beautiful dresses are available without any sleeves or shoulders to them.
