That's not the purpose of a wedding dress at all. She tries to look beautiful for herself and for her groom to appreciate how beautiful she looks, not to show off her attributes.

I got married in 1996 and every gown had sleeves. This sleeveless wedding gown is a relatively new thing. Surely you grandmother wore sleeves! It would have been incredibly inappropriate and considered rude not to!

It is the fashion now for wedding dresses to be without straps or sleeves, neither of which I like.
Since I am already married though I don't care but if I was going to get married and did find a dress I like without sleeves I would simply have them added and pay any extra charge there would be.

Maybe it's a seasonal thing?

Most weddings I've been to have been in the summer or spring, so the bride chose to dress accordingly.

Whenever the time comes, I think I'd prefer a sleeveless dress. I'm a 5'10" beanpole and I don't think sleeves would look so good on my ridiculously long arms.

Thank you~... My daughter wedding was held outside during the summer, so sleeveless was a good choice...

No, it is not the point of a wedding dress to show off the bride's "attributes". The attributes should be revealed behind closed doors later.... kind of like unwrapping a present.
Back in the day, when people had decorum, a priest or minister would never perform a wedding unless the bride was modestly covered.
I think it is much lovelier for a bride to dress like a princess, and not like a street walker.

Thankfully men never have to worry about the sleeve length of our tuxedo. Just sweat it through like a true guy .

Ummmm, yeah, the best attributes, right. Gotta emphasize that booty and push out those breasts!

If she's looking for a divorce on grounds of adultery in few years, go get 'um.

She is an attractive woman but I'm not sure her dress was an indication of innate "class." She married into a Orthodox Jewish family so her conservative wedding dress (which was, to my taste, stunning) was appropriate for the faith to which she converted.
