Most summer dresses usually have narrow straps or thin spaghetti straps that finish on or above the knee with an a-line shape.

Strapless dress is an adorable and feminine choice of summer dress that helps to show off your sexy shoulders. While this style may make you look stunning, there are also many potential pitfalls that come with this one. To go well with strapless, you should ideally have a swan’s neck and a pair of graceful arms. You may need a low-key chest that can run for a bus without causing a stir. You should have slight shoulders and not those of ice-hockey players, and elegant wrists. If you decide to go for a strapless dress, please be advised to wear a good strapless bra. A convertible bra should work well under a strapless dress and will give you enough support. Strapless formal dresses are usually fitted from the bust to the waist, thus you can consider wearing a body skimmer or any other shape-wear to make your body look slim. And, to further ensure that your bra can always stay in place, consider pinning the bra to your dress to tie it up a bit more.
