I bought a lace bolero on Etsy to go over my strapless lace dress. I just received it but I’m not sure if I want to wear it. The lace matches beautifully and I feel more comfortable with the lace covering my bust and arms, because I just felt like I was falling out of the dress before.
The biggest area of concern is that the back of the bolero has buttons, but my dress is a corset back. Does it look okay? I’ve lost a bit of weight so the corset is as tight as it can go on that part of the dress. What do you think?

First of all, I looooove your dress.
Secondly, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. People probably won’t notice. The ribbon breaking it up definitely helps differentiate between the buttons and corset areas.

I have to steal from @AmeliaBedelia: “I loooooove your dress.”
I really, really do! And actually I love the button, then satin wrap, and then corset, it is very edgy and works well with each other.
You should wear the bolero! Go for it!

I think you look absolutely stunning! The sleeve length on the bolero is perfect and the buttons at the back are gorgeous – for me, the transition works especially with the way the sash breaks it up.

Good job on picking that one out!! It looks like a perfect fit and with the difference in corset/button I honestly don’t think it’s a ‘stand out’ difference!

yep I thought it was part of the dress until I read your post. It is stunning.
When you described the back of the dress as buttons over the corset I thought that would look a bit odd but with the sash it doesn’t look weird or out of place at all.
