For some brides, their dreams include nothing less than strapless wedding dresses. This look is a classic look for a wedding dress, but is not always easy to pull off. Almost any woman can wear a strapless dress, but there are a few that can not. It all depends on the type of dress you want, the size of your chest, and the rest of the design. Some dresses are simply designed better than others. If you want to go strapless, don’t be discouraged if you try one on and it doesn’t work for you. There may just be another that will look amazing on you and will be just what you have dreamed of wearing.
Most women think that they can not wear strapless wedding dresses because they have a very large chest or because they feel they do not have enough of a chest. The truth is that there is no perfect chest size for strapless. You just have to find the right size and style of dress for your chest measurements. Those with small chests need something that lifts a bit, and those with a larger chest need something with support that is sewn right in. Ask for a dress made just for your chest size. A good wedding shop will have plenty of options for you.
When you go to try on strapless dresses of any type, you have to decide if you want to wear a bra or not. This can change your options. Most women who want to wear strapless wedding dresses do not want to have to bother with finding a strapless bra that stays up, fits well, and that will not show under the dress. If you choose to go without a bra, don’t worry, most of the good strapless wedding gowns out there are made for the woman who does not want to wear both. They should have extra support.
Some dresses will not stay up without being very stiff and tight along the top of your chest. This is not the best look for many women. This type of strapless wedding dresses often lack any type of support under the chest. What happens is that the top line of the dress has to be so tight that the skin bulges above the dress near the armpits. This is not a flattering look. This happens even with the thinnest of women. If the dress in question does this for you, ask to try on something else. There are enough options out there to help you avoid this problem.
Once you have weeded through your options, remember that there is one final touch that goes with almost all strapless wedding dresses. This type of dress leaves the neck and shoulders bare, and that often looks under dressed for a wedding. Look for a necklace that compliments your dress. If you have a lot of beading on your dress, a simple necklace will do. If you have a very plain dress, you may want something more dramatic. You don’t have to wear anything around your neck, but try a few things to see if you don’t agree that this is the perfect finishing touch for a strapless wedding gown.
