Strapless Wedding Dresses FAQs (Answered)
Who can wear a strapless wedding dress?
Due to its strapless nature, attention will naturally be to your arms, shoulders, neckline and décolletage.
One of the best things about a strapless wedding gown is that they come in all dress shapes – mermaid, ball gown, a line etc.
PS – Emerald Bridal has a number of styles that have detachable dress straps.
In more recent times the strapless wedding dress has copped a fair bit of flak. Some describe them as accentuating broad shoulders, others say they can make them feel flat chested. Certain people think that strapless weddings are inappropriate for church weddings. And there will be plenty of magazine editors who will throw in the words ‘armpit fat’ when commenting on celebrities.
None of this matters.
What matters is that you feel comfortable and confident in your wedding dress. And this is why a personalised fitting appointment is so important. Anyone can order a dress online but you really have to try it on before you buy.

Which wedding dress will suit my body shape?
In all honesty, there is no way of knowing until you try a dress on and look in the mirror. There are all sorts of online advice on what wedding dress style suits what type of body shape. Ignore these! The best wedding dress is the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
Can I order by phone?
We insist our customers to come in for a personalised fitting. For this reason, we do not have an online shopping cart because we want each bride to experience what it feels like to try on a wedding dress and to find ‘the one’.
You can, however, make an appointment by phone or email to view and try on multiple dresses.
Our appointments run for 60-minutes.
Will I need an appointment?
Yes, an appointment is required for a fitting at our Sydney bridal showroom.
When should I start shopping for a wedding dress?
To ensure that your dress fits you perfectly, we recommend leaving a 6-month buffer. Whilst we can rush in certain orders, this will restrict the number of designs you may choose from.
What sizes are your sample gowns?
Bridal sizing is very different to normal clothing sizes. That is, wedding dresses tend to run smaller than your regular size.
We use the US standard sizing system and most wedding gowns can be ordered in size 0 through 16. Our in-store sample ranges from size 8 – 12.
We do not usually have plus size sample gowns in-store.
