I have a dress, but I’m prone to breakouts on my back, espeically when I’m stressed. I want to find a bolero that would cover up my back if need be. I just don’t know where to start. I’m thinking probably not lace since the dress material is satin.
that’s me in the dress, and from the designer below
Any ideas at all? I’m lost.
It won’t post my pics, so there’s links instead.

Have you googled images for “satin bolero”? or checked out etsy? I have a taffeta gown that looks very similar to yours. I went with a lace bolero from “CanadaSunfashions”, and I received it a week after I ordered it, and I love it!
A couple questions for you: 1. do you want cap sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves, or long sleeves? and 2. What color (ivory, white, colored)?

Davids Bridal has satin boleros for reasonable prices.

Yes very true. I actually really liked a satin one at DB and almost bought it, but didnt want to wait 12 weeks to get it in the mail. But the OP has time, so great suggestion.
OP-you should just go to DB, try on a few with a dress that is similar to yours, and go from there. Then youll get an idea about size, color, style, etc. Good luck.

Thank you for your responses!
I’m just worried #1 it’s going to look stupid with my dress, or #2 the colours won’t match since I ordered my dress in “bright white” I guess I’ll have to wait till it comes in to guage that though.

I truly think lace would look lovely with that dress. I had a friend who wore a lace bolero over her satin dress and it was stunning. 🙂

I was worried about the same thing. Re: color, you really have nothing to worry about. Just order “white”, and you’ll be fine. My bolero is white, and my dress is “pearl”, so I have a bit of a color mismatch, but Im going with it. I also think the lace would look lovely. I think the satin may appear to be too much fabric–like you ARE trying to cover up verse trying to accessorize. Just go try some boleros on. Itll all work out.
