    Tough call but I vote for the cap sleeves.

    I vote to go with the cap sleeve. The bolero is beautiful, but it’s too loose and makes your whole look a bit messy.

    I love the cap sleeves and think that they will complement your dress beautifully.

    I like the cap sleeves better than the bolero and for more reasons than the fit.  I just don’t think it goes as well

    @jessyrez:  Ah I see. I still prefer the cap the sleeves with the overall look (since it doesn’t detract from your dress), but the bolero would definitely look better in your size. 🙂

    Cap sleeves! The bolero covers up too much- a bit distracting. The cap sleeves add the perfect amount of coverage and look very dainty:)

    @MlleFabuleux:  +1 

    I find the bolero distracting and just a bit fussy, even taking into account that it’s too big. There’s already so much detail in your dress, I would go for the cap sleeves.

    Agreed, the cap sleeves look so much classier 🙂

    @jessyrez:  Where is the bolero from?  I’ve been looking for one just like it.  I want it! 

    I think the cap sleeves are better for your dress.

    I tried on that dress.  It looks lovely on you.

     

    I agree with the majority that cap sleeves are a better option.  I think the sleeves on the bolero are just a bit too much for your dainty dress.

    I voted bolero – if you can cut the sleeves off.

    I actually really like the lace on the shoulders of the bolero – the scalloped edge and pattern actally match your dress – but I think the sleeves are too much. Make it sleeveless l and it would be perfect.

    I’m not a fan of the cap sleeves as they are a different fabric/style to the rest of the dress. Therefore I would be concerned that they will look like straps that have been added  on, rather than an integral part of the dress.

    I couldn’t vote for either of them because I think that you look gorgeous as it is now, and I am not even a fan of strapless dresses in general.
