I have enjoyed the recent trend of the non-strapless gown - both for the bride and her bridesmaids. I am absolutely in lust with these bridesmaids gowns - they are a gorgeous, flattering style which "stays put" all night long, even on the dance floor!
There is nothing I cringe at more than watching a lovely bride or bridesmaid hike up her strapless frock because she feels like it's falling down! I admit, I was that bride. My strapless gown, which fit like a glove, still felt like it needed to be pulled up.
I often hear that finding non-strapless gowns can be difficult, but from the look of designer's collections, I have a good feeling there will be more and more available over the coming seasons.
