I am debating on whether or not to wear a lace bolero with my dress. I am a proportional size 18 and am uncomfortable with my tattoo on my back. My gown is strapless with an empire waste, with organza flowing down from there–not a hint of lace either. Most of the pictures I see have gowns, like the one below, that are more form-fitting. What do you think?

I think it would look fine. You should do what you need to do to feel comfortable on your wedding day.

I usually LOVE bolero’s, but I’m not sure if I’d choose a lace one with your dress. Have you checked into any other kind (I bought my on Etsy and the gal custom made it to my measurements)?

Your dress is lovely and you look beautiful in it. I think a bolero would look fine. Perhaps sheer lace and you could put just a bit on smug free coverup makeup on the tattoo????

I think your dress looks perfect! I dont know if i see it in a lace bolero… I love it how it is in your pic!

I think the girl in this pic has a similar style to your dress with a lace bolero. Personally, I think a ruffeled bolero would look better, b/c like yours there isn’t any other lace. But, at least this pic can give you an idea of how a dress that is more flowy looks with a bolero.

I have a dress that is very similar to yours and I am getting a chiffon “tube” it’s like a chiffon donut that you can put on over your shoulders and it looks like a bolero

I tried on that dress (loved it too, by the way) and I don’t think I’d wear a bolero with it because of the back detail (not visible in this picture, but it’s got a beautifully detailed back leading into a train). I think a bolero would be too busy with that. The one might be a perfectly plain, sheer chiffon but I’d have to see it on you before registering a vote. I’ve heard of good tattoo cover-up makeup options…maybe you could post for advice on that.
P.S. You look absolutely gorgeous, BTW!

You look beautiful! I think a short sleeve lace bolero would look cute, especially like the one in the first picture.

We’re dress twins! I think a lace bolero would look okay, or you could always get tattoo cover-up makeup.
