    It’s hard to tell without seeing it on you.  Can you wear it and post a pic?

    I think it looks like it belongs to the dress!  Would be easier to know with it on, like Cariad said.

    I think it would look much nicer without the sleeves! Embrace your body, scars and all 🙂

    @mamasey:  I think it looks great with the sleeves you had put on and if it makes you feel better, I totally understand why you wanted them.

    But, I thought I’d mention that I honest to goodness can barely see the part of the scar that’s exposed.  If you never pointed it out, I wouldn’t have known.


    I think all laced up, it will look beautiful!

    I think it definitely looks better than the one sleeve before!  You look gorgeous!  I’m so glad you found a way to feel comfortable with it!

    I have scars myself, all along my shoulders and back and even my face (scarring disorder similar to lupus that affected me as a child). I grew up soo self-conscious and uncomfortable because of it… but my fiance made me feel beautiful even in spite of the scarring. He helped me gain confidence and love me for me, scars and all.

    I am actually wearing a strapless dress. One of my aunts tried to suggest I go get a chemical peel or treatment for my back and shoulders to try to help with the scars (that’s how obvious they are…), but I honestly don’t mind them anymore.. They’re part of me, and my fiance loves me regardless!

    However, I TOTALLY understand how you feel, I was there myself once!! But I think the sleeves will bring more attention to the scar (it kind of looks like you are trying to cover it up, which to me makes it stand out more). PLUS, you’re going to be beautiful and beaming on your wedding day, and ALL ATTENTION will be on your face! It looks like (from the tiny bit of your face showing in one picture) that you have a beautiful complexion and lips, so I’m 100% sure your smile and the happiness on your face will be the star of the show!
