Sooo I found this lovely dress that fits my body type (I have very narrow hips which can sometimes lead to me looking like a line backer) however I’m unsure of how I can incorporate sleeves (my Fiance as well as my own family are very modest and require some sort of cover up).
Is there a type of bolero that will match this dress https://www-static.weddingbee.com/pics/245696/MaggieSmiley.jpg (It is Dynasty by Maggie Sottero), it’s a big poofy organza dress with a drop waist and long train.
Please helppp I’m so confused as liking this dress took me by surprise, I assumed I would have gotten a lace dress with less poof.

Qreocity: Gorgeous dress!
I found these pics:
a long sleeved bolero
I think you could wear a number of styles woth this dress. A sheer lace jaclet that you wear over the dress would be stunning.

For broad shoulders strapless is actually the best – gives you a more proportioned look. If you do go with a bolero I would stay away from an off the shoulder kind – that will only emphasize width

Really? I always feel very self conscious in strapless gowns even when I was thinner (I’ve gained maybe 15 lbs in the last year and it’s mainly showing in my upper body).
I really love the picture of the girl wearing the lace bolero, I wasn’t sure if it would go with the organza material in the skirt of the dress but it seems like it does. It’s too bad there isn’t a full on picture of her as well.
Here is what my body looks like so maybe everyone can get a better understanding with what they are working with, one shows how my body looks with a fitted skirt (horrendous) and another with a more flared skirt (much better IMO).
