Why Are Strapless Wedding Dresses So Popular?

Recommended Posts

@@ReneeSpenser  - everyone is entitled to their opinion. if strapless dresses aren't for you, then don't buy one. but kindly refrain from bashing other bride's choices or styles just because they don't fit with your vision. that's just unnecessary and mean.

I agree, while everyone has their own opinion on what best suits them, there are a lot of women who wear strapless and wouldn't want to feel their dresses were considered 'ugly'.  That's the beauty of choice!  You can wear what you want and what you feel best in.   Also, any strapless can be made to have sleeves, so win win!  When I set out to get my dress I said I didn't want strapless whatsoever, and oddly they are the only ones I felt I looked good in!

When I started shopping I actually wanted something with straps or cap sleeves. I don't think strapless are ugly but I just wanted something a bit different. I thought straps were gorgeous but as I started to try on dresses I realized strapless was more my thing. Being petite meant adding another alteration to the straps because they were too long for me or too wide, taking over 3/4 of my chest. I ended up with a strapless dress. What I'm saying is keep an open mind because you might end up with a dress that you wouldn't have thought you would have liked. I guess if you really hate them then you probably won't get a strapless but please don't bash other people's choices. I'm sure you wouldn't like people saying your choice of reception decor or whatever was ugly.

This is why there are tons of designers and tons of options out there. If strapless doesn't work for you then you don't have to wear it but they obviously work for some women. I personally do not care for lace but it works for another bride I wouldn't knock it.

To each their own for sure! And they're definitely not for every body type. On the other hand, destination weddings are often hot and humid, so the less fabric the better! ;)

I DO think if you look at the entire universe of wedding dresses a majority of them are strapless. But the neck and shoulders happen to be a beautiful thing to show off! You could just as easily say "why are white dresses so popular" (white isn't the most flattering color on every skin tone) or "why are long dresses so popular" (some women should show off their rockin' legs).

 

The point is - we should all wear whatever the heck we feel beautiful in no matter if it has straps, lace, or polka dots. That is my 2 cents :)

lace anything looks beautiful IMO, whether it's a dress or a towel LOL. I'm wearing strapless because i love my shoulders and I've finally got some muscles to show off!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
