@echopkb: Have you thought about having an illusion top (Google Ivanka Trump’s) or consulting with a seamstress and doing a build up (a’la Princess Diaries II)?

  @Mrs.Darling: Illusion tops are so amazing!

@echopkb: Can we see a pic of you in the dress? It might be easier to make a suggestion if we can see what you have going on 🙂 Cap sleeves vs. illusion top would totally depend on the style of the dress as it currently is.

A seamstress can add cap sleeves to most strapless wedding dresses.

Whoops! I just re-read your post and saw that you wanted something with more coverage. Maybe you could ask the seamstress about wrapping those cap sleeves around the back a little? How low does your dress dip in the back?

you could definately add some satin straps, and ask the seamstress to replicate the lovely beading trim that lines the bust.

Any good seamstress can add an illusion top in a sheer fabric over the satin dress. Most pics online are in lace but you can do the same thing with a plain sheer fabric and add some beading detail to match your dress.
