Strapless Gown- Age Inappropriate?
Posted 25 November 2009 - 08:32 PM
Yesterday, a friend of my mother's commented that I needed to forget about a strapless gown as it would emphasize my breasts (kind of the point.) She insisted that a portrait collar would be best for me. She is a very fashionable woman and I must say, I felt a bit insulted.
Is there an age where wearing a strapless gown is just not done? LOL Am I too old to show some cleavage!! I don't want to look like a frump going down the aisle!!

I agree with the others -buy what you like and what looks GREAT on you.
That being said - some things to keep in mind. Us larger girls with bigger busts don't always look as nice in strapless gowns because of how they make us bulge out in the armpits or around the back. However, there are LOTS of girls on here that are in strapless gowns and are plus size that still look great. It will depend on the dress and what you wear under it.
If the point is to accent your breasts - why not try something with a plunging neckline in a halter style or similar? But anyway - I suggest trying on all kinds of different styles - sometimes what looks the best on you is something you normally wouldn't consider!

I know lots of 40-something ladies who look like a knockout in strapless gowns/dresses:-)
That said, I also agree you should try on different styles -- even ones you don't think you'll like, b/c if there's one thing I learned wedidng dress shopping is, YOU JUST NEVER KNOW! :-)
