OMG! I love your dress!!! So gorgeous! Once it’s altered (and your corset is tied how you want it to be) it should make all your doubts go away. I didn’t notice your arms (I’m suuuuper self-conscious about my arms too). I think it looks AMAZING.

I think that once it is altered and cinched up, it will look more to what you are looking for. I think it looks great on you. I would not do cap sleeves though. In my opinion, they tend to make arms look bigger. Maybe a nice bolero would work for you. I am busty too, so I got a bolero. I got it at http://www.tulipbridal.com/index.php. Here is a picture of the one I got. It was on clearance and they don’t have anymore left, but they do still have some that would go great with your gown.

Awhh Tetelove, I think you look lovely!

I’m terrible with fashion so I have no useful suggestions. But I do have the same worries with a large chest. What about a different bra? Sometimes if you have better support everything feels better?

The dress is beautiful and you are gorgeous in it!

I must say, I did not even notice your arms until I read the post. I dont think you have to worry there. Now the ladies…. those I definitely noticed… but that’s because you have big ladies.

I wouldn’t worry too much about it. I think you look awesome. Some cap sleeves could look really cute on that dress, though.

I second the suggestion on a good bra. Definitely get sized and get the right support, style, etc. Lane Bryant is my favorite place to go. Really friendly people and great sales!

I think your dress is really pretty and that you look lovely in it.  Once it’s taken in a bit at the waist, your waist will be more defined. I don’t think too much of the “girls” are showing.  I think your arms look fine, but like the other poster said, there are some amazing boleros out there, if that would make you feel more comfortable.  But, seriously, your dress is gorgeous and you will be a beautiful bride!!  I kind of like the bolero idea better than cap sleeves…..I’ve seen some really pretty short sleeved boleros.

OOOooh you are going to look gorgeous on your wedding day!!!  I don’t think you have to worry about your arms.  They look totally fine.  And once you get the right bra/support and your gown laced up you will really rock that gown!!!  🙂

I love it! Stop second guessing yourself, you look absolutely lovely and perfectly like a bride. That dress is a great shape for you… but it needs to be tailored. And, like the others, I agree that a better bra will make it a million times better.

I also don’t think you really need a jacket… your arms do not look strangely big or anything like that! I never would have ever thought that about you in this gown.

 

Also, I really like your veil length. Perfect choice!

I think if you’re worried about your arms looking big (which I don’t think they do, by the way), you shouldn’t add cap sleeves.  In my experience, they sound like a good idea but usually end up making you look wider than if you’d have left them off.  I think you look wonderful!

You look beautiful and I think your dress is very figure flattering.  Alterations will do wonders as will good undergarments.  So don’t fret!  I honestly think the dress looks gorgeous as it is.  I personally don’t think the strap quite fits with the emboridery and beading of the gown.  If you had a plain dress I think the strap might go a little better.

The dress is beautiful and looks great on! I think it could look great with or without the strap!!! I know that doesn’t really help. I def agree that it needs to be cinched more, you can tell that it’s too loose in the waist and that will make a world of diffference!!! Good luck! Post pictures once you have it how you want it! Can’t wait to see 🙂
