    Yes to the sleeve, just not that sleeve, see if you can get one in satin to match the dress fabric. : (2 votes)

    I had the same dilemma at at DB. It is hard to give an opinion with out seeing it, but I thought those sleves were made to go on strapless dresses? 


    Regarding the darkening of your underarms, have you ever tried to address that? There are many reasons for having hyperpigmentation and sometimes it is easily resolved with exfoliation (using something like Glycolic acid, not just a loofa in the shower).  Just a thought….

    Just because you buy your dress at DB doesn’t mean you have to get alterations done there. Any seamstress could add sleeves to your liking (plus other alterations will be way cheaper than at davids bridal). Just look at Yelp for your city.

    I dont think adding that sleeve to that dress would work.

    have you considered a cute bolero?

    I added a bolero to my dress and that worked out well for me.  I don’t think that sleeve will give you the look you want.
