Try Jasmine.  They will alter any design and offer a “temple-ready” collection.

Would you consider a strapless dress with a bolero over it? That would look so cute!

there are dresses out there.  you could modify a strapless dress to have cap sleeves.  just start going to some boutiques and tell them what you want.

Hi!  I found some websites I think you might like:






I have never bought from any of those websites, but I do think that they will give you an idea of what options you do have.  And if you do find a dress that you love at a bridal store but doesn’t quite fit your needs one of these websites could give you an idea of alterations that you could do to them.  Good luck!!!

David’s Bridal has a couple of dresses right now that I’d consider quite modest.  I posted about them on another post here on the hive recently (although that bride was trying to cover tattoos).  Some of the dresses other bees posted there might be helpful for you too!  They were beautiful!

I think you have the most options if you look and find a dress you like, so you can see them on in person, and then figure out how to alter them.  Like adding a little panel or wearing a wrap or bolero.

I think adding a bolero to a strapless dress is probably your best option 🙂

What about something like what Ivanka Trump did?  If you’re worried about being hot with a bolero, then a lace top like this should be cooler and still give you coverage.  I’m no seamstress, but it seems like it shouldn’t be impossible to add something like this to most strapless dresses?
