    I think those sleeves would look absolutely gorgeous with that dress!

    You might also consider extending the sleeves a little farther down the arm though.  I think it would balance it if it went past the elbows.  But that’s just an idea.

    btw, I LOVE your dress!  It was one of my runner ups. πŸ™‚

    I’m a fan of pickups (my dress has them)! πŸ˜‰ I really like your dress, and I think it looks great with the addition of sleeves. I was actually considering this style of sleeves on my dress too (I also don’t like boleros much), but my mom nixed it. πŸ˜›

    First of all, your dress is GORGEOUS!!!! I am in the same boat with my arms. I’m gonna leave mine exposed and not worry about it. (And do lots of toning exercise in the meantime.) The only thing I would be concerned about, with the sleeves, is range of motion. Will you be able to pick your arms up to hug people? Other than that, I think it would look really good with the sleeves.

    Sleeves look great!  A really nice option if you are against a bolero.

    I LOVE your dress……

    I think that I like it without sleeves BUT I am adding sleeved to mine cause I get uncomfortable too so what do I know!

    But I still think it is SUPER pretty with the sleeves and I am not the biggest fan of bolero’s either…..

    Either way i think it will look gorgeous.

    I like the dress without the sleeves because I always feel like sleeves actually big arms that are big look even bigger!!  I don’t like my arms much either but when I tried on dresses with sleeve, I thought they looked bigger than without!

    But if you do want to cover your arms, I actually thought those sleeves look pretty cute and romantic!

    Why do you think sleeves aren’t in right now?  You couldn’t be more incorrect!  After Kate Middleton’s dress, sleeves have become all the rage!  I think sleeves look beautiful with your dress.  I am soooo sick and tired of strapless dreeses.  They are so overdone.  Go with the sleeves, girl!  You’ll look stunning.  My dress has sheer straps and I love them! Booooo strapless.
