Okay sooo… I really like this tight lace crop as seen on Maggie Sottero Symphony. I know it’s separate, because I’ve seen many pictures of the dress without the lace part. I saw the back and see that it buttons up.
Would this be called a bolero?? Does it have a proper name? I can’t seem to find one or figure out what it’s called… know where I can get this or one really similiar? I want it to stop at the boobage area (not below it) and ideally kind of stretchy, so it would be snug. Either of the ones below would do.
Thank you! =)
Ends right at/below bustline

Yup, this is a bolero. I don’t recognize the designer/know where to buy it myself, but I know there are a lot of other Bees who have worn something similar. “Stargurl” something is one who springs to mind, and there’s another whose picture I can envision but I can’t remember her username …
I’d say you could probably find some excellent leads if you do a couple of WeddingBee searches with search terms like “bolero,” “sleeves,” etc., go through a bunch of those threads, look for pictures of Bees wearing something like what you want, and PM them asking for info on where there bolero came from. I know a lot of people get them custom-made from various Etsy sellers who will create pretty much whatever you are looking for.
ETA: You might also have some luck over in the Catholic and Christian boards. Many (though not all) Catholic churches as well as Mormons and some other Christian denominations have rules about no strapless/no bare shoulders/no cleavage, etc., for church weddings, so there are a number of threads with pics of boleros in those boards.

@yanamari: They come under a few different names, bolero/shrug/bridal jacket. Have a look on Etsy. I found these when looking for something similar. Last seller takes custom orders too…
