I bought this dress at David’s Bridal which I love because it has straps so I can wear a bra (gotta love the DDs). Unfortunately, I’m not too thrilled with my arms so I was thinking of getting a bolero. I’m getting married in August so it’s going to be very hot so I don’t want something really thick. My problem is that most pictures of boleros are worn with strapless dresses. I’m not sure if my dress would look awkward with a bolero or not. Also, there are just so many to choose from that I don’t know where to begin. Any suggestions are appreciated!! The main color at my wedding is purple so I am not opposed to wearing something that isn’t white.

I think if the bolero wasn’t really open-necked it would be fine

I think, with this cut of dress, IF you felt the need to cover your arms, I might go with a flutter sleeve added on to the dress in a lace or organza. Sort of like this:

I really like the above suggestion…I would pick a bolero like that but just keep it as an option. I’m sure you will look fantastic without it..such a pretty dress! I’m not a huge fan of my upper arms right now either….they aren’t huge or anything,…let’s just say the death of my 20’s is starting to show. I’ve been lifting weights..so hopefully they will look better by my wedding day. Good luck! your dress is fabulous!

I’m looking at one on Light in the box, and she has a v-neck dress on, and it looks nice. I haven’t ordered yet, but the price looks good. They have several. I think I’m going to get this simple organza one. My dress is the rosette chiffon wedding dress from JC Penny.
and here’s the bolero.

What do the bees think about the top dress with the bolero jacket (2nd photo)?

Thanks for the suggestions! I have a while still (we’re not getting married until August) so I could try lifting weights but I would like to have another option just in case that doesn’t work.
