Full bands would be nice to see, but I think that's just a fantasy these days.  I consider myself lucky to have had a girlfriend who had them in the 90's.  She wasn't too pleased about it I don't think as it seemed quite unusual.  At that point, I don't think I'd seen anyone with bands since the mid 80's.  Anyway, she wore them well and used to get hit on all the time.

Fixed top and bottom METAL braces with thickest wire and bright colorful neon doubled up powerchains. Also every bracket is laced with thick metal wire to keep everything very tight. At least 8 molar bands if not more. Top and bottom fixed metal expanders to be screwed open twice a day. Top and bottom fixed tongue spurs (not tongue crib). Fixed BULKY herbst appliance. Large VERY PAINFUL closing loops on the top and bottom on each side. Multiloop Edgewise Archwire (MEAW) on every tooth. Combination high-pull and cervical-pull WIRED headgear on the top to be worn 24/7. Fixed reverse-pull headgear metal mask screwed into sides of skull (same concept as a HALO brace). HEAVY reverse-pull elastics will be worn 24/7 and attached to LOWER molar bands to further help move the LOWER jaw forward. Hooks on every bracket including the front teeth. Zig-zag elastics starting from back molar all the way to the front teeth (every tooth included). These zig-zag elastics will pull the teeth together while trapping the tongue inside to constantly feel all that metal. Chapstick should be applied as zig-zag elastics will make it impossible to lick your lips. All of these appliances are to be installed and worn on the first day of bracing.

Fundamentally, it has to be fixed, on which removable things can be built. I like the fact that even in your "most natural state", the braces are still attached to you as something you can't remove. I do quite like the "social awkwardness" of the fixed appliance, and not something that can be skilfully removed into a napkin when the opportunity arises.

When talking about "embraced" ladies, i definetely prefer fixed braces. No exterior appliances.
I also like "more prominent" braces more than these "camouflage" teeth-color-type brackets (ceramic?)

Definitely fixed braces, a Herbst and expander and a tongue crib. Headgear would also be great. This would be dream treatment for me or have my wife wear it.

I prefer fixed. The idea of getting out of the orthodontist chair and being at the mercy of the orthodontist is pretty hot. The only time I'd choose removable was if there was a lady who made sure I wore them.

And only fixed for someone else.

anything that is shiny, metallic and noticeable. the facebow of a headgear, brackets from fixed braces, hawley retainer. the only think I don't like them to be is discreet.

Really obvious "invisible" clear brackets are quite cool, they are so bulky and if someone already has buck  teeth it pushes their lips out so much!
