My dress has delicate detailed straps. Whats the fabirc of your dress, do you have a pic you can post?  I tried several strapless dresses on – I wanted straps or cap sleeves no matter if I had to add them or not.  When I tried on strapless dresses the gals at the bridal store always made a faux cap sleeve or faux strap – when they did that, all the dresses changed for the better….

You could go with a ruched cap sleeve… to mimic the ruching in your dress

I added ruched cap sleeves to my dress and they turned out wonderful… you can wear them either scruched up or spread out father

I am attaching cap sleeves to my dress.  At first I wanted sleeves not only to hold up my dress (I am busty and strapless can be a pain), but also because I don’t feel comfortable being so exposed.  When I actually picked a dress, I was thrilled because it has boning that keeps it up exactly where it should be.  However, I am still going with the cap sleeves to cover up armpit fat cleavage.

Do you need sleeves? I think the dress is so pretty as is but if you want them i think a nice bolero would do.
