Would you rather have a dress with some type of sleeve (off-the-shoulder, cap, 3/4, illusion, etc.)? Or go completely strapless? Which style has you vote, sleeves or strapless?

    Sleeves! My dress only has straps, but I love the look of 3/4 or long sleeves (even considered adding some). I also prefer sleeves/straps for practicality, strapless would not do me any favors personally as a busty woman Smiley xd

    Definitely sleeves. I can't stand strapless dresses and definitely wouldn't choose to wear one for my wedding day.

    I love my strapless dress. All the dresses I tried on with sleeves were itchy and uncomfortable.

    Sleeves or cap sleeves look better on me

    This is a body type question. I have tried on both. I have toned arms, but I look better in sleeveless than in strapless. I like both styles though.

    Sleeves over strapless. I chose spaghetti straps.

    I knew I wanted some type of sleeve! I have a really small chest, so I would've been worried about a strapless falling down

    That's a tricky one. It's harder to find gowns with sleeves, and even harder to find ones with sleeves that don't look frumpy. Often the lace sleeves end up kind of crinkled and bunched if not tailored just right. On the other hand, not everyone wants to show off their arms. I guess I'd say sleeves, but only with the right material and cut.

    Sleeves for me! I hate my arms, but I like either sleeves or sleeveless. Both have their charm.

    My dress is strapless. I personally am not a fan of sleeves, at best off shoulder sleeves. Esp where I live it is almost always hot.
