I just had my final dress fitting and I love my dress. Although I’m still heavy I’ve been working my butt off and have lost 40 lbs. That had left a lot of extra saggy skin especially on my arms. I’m at a loss of what to buy to cover up my arms. My wedding is a winter wedding theme . Here are some pics. Does the dress look ok on me?

A tulle shawl or short bolero/shrug would look great. I would stay away from cap sleeves or off the shoulder sleeves since they draw attention to the widest part of your arms.

you look amazing in your dress! A white fur shrug or bolero would look great at a winter wedding.

I think a fur wrap would like nice especially since your weddig is In The winter. 🙂 here are linka to some I found while googling.
you might even be able to find a fur wrap from the same place you got your dress since it’s an accessory.

megs102: first of all, congratulations on your hard work! :). Maybe something like this? I bet Etsy would be a good place to look if you’re buying online.

You look great. Try a lace bolero.

i would do a faux fur wrap like PP posted – it would look very elegant and a little Old Hollywood with that gorgeous gown!. Honestly, I feel like most shrugs and jackets end up drawing more attention to arms because now they are bright white. I think you look amaaaazing in your dress! Love that you went with a ballgown!

You look beautiful in that dress! I like the idea of a wrap, but if you want your arms to be covered all night then a bolero may be better.

Congrats on losing the weight – that is a major accomplishment! You and your dress are gorgeous. I second the idea of having a fur stole to go with the winter theme.
Hope your planning is going well! I’m slowing driving myself crazy. Can’t wait for December! 🙂

What about a jacket like this? I tried this one on the other day and it made me feel comfortable and it was even prettier in person.
