    I really like it, I think it’s really flattering! I wouldn’t bother with anything you mentioned, honestly. It looks great.

    I think you could find a more flattering dress, but the one you chose is lovely.

    Dress looks great on you! I don’t think you need a bolero, although I feel you on the broad shoulders thing. Whenever I wear strapless tops and dresses, I’m afraid of looking like a gorilla in a tube top.

    @MmeSilverBullet:  I think the dress looks lovely on you! It defines your waist and gives you lovely curves! I honestly wouldn’t add a bolero…. You will be creating and drawing eyes to that area whereas now my eyes see your defined waist! I don’t think you need to cover up…. You look beautiful!

    @MmeSilverBullet:  I understand, I’m the same size as you, and also went to david’s bridal. They don’t have a whole lot for plus size women.

    I think you look beautiful and the dress hugs your body in all the right places! I love the side clinch and you really don’t need anything over unless that would  make you feel more comfy. I also have a wide back shoulders and this style dress is the best for our upper body shape.

    I think your dress is really nice! What’s better, you’ll have no problem finding a nice lace bolero to go with it since it doesnt’ have any embelishments that would fight with it for attention. 

    I absolutely agree with your idea to add a crinoline though, it will poof out the bottom of the dress and balance out your shoulders, that way it will be even more figure-flattering. 

    A few bolero options you could try:

     
    A word of caution though: I would avoid bateau/sabrina/off the shoulder necklines on boleros if I were you, they tend to visually broaden the shoulders! (Which is the exact reason why I love them on me! lol) 

    Please, no more dress regret, you’ll be a beautiful bride! Your FI loves the dress and even though he’s a man and they’re usually clueless about dresses, that still counts for something, right?

    @MmeSilverBullet:  Your dress is really pretty and I wouldn’t add a crinoline, since it falls beautifully. 

    Your FI *cried* when he saw you in it! He sounds crazy in love with you 🙂 

    I have broad shoulders too, and I actually think they’re good if you have a bit of extra weight, since they give your body structure and balance out your proportions. You look great, and don’t forget you’ll look even better once the “look” comes together (hair, makeup, jewelry, etc.)
