Hello lovely brides!
I am having a dilemma. I am a bit self-conscious about my shoulders, (I feel that they are too bony) but all I’m really finding out there are strapless dresses. I think I’ve narrowed my favorites to these 2:
(I don’t like the bolero that comes with the Maggie Sottero.)
I’d prefer something lacy or more vintage-y. Does anyone have any suggestions for shrugs or boleros that would go with either one of these dresses?
Thanks so much!

Etsy is a great place for boleros. Just go there and do a search for lace bolero. You’ll get lots.

I agree Etsy has some very cute/ nice ones. But I got mine form http://www.tulipbridal.com/ and I LOVE it, and it was much more cost effective 🙂

I wore a lace shrug from etsy seller Alex Bridal with my dress (my shrug was short sleeved, like this one– I love the lace in person), and it was lovely! The quality is excellent for the price, and it looked great with my dress. This seller appears to be the same as the Tulip Bridal link given by pinkb.
Etsy seller MaryandAngelika has many good shrugs and boleros, too (check out Wearing Clouds and Radar for lace). I also considered this (knit with lace- I’m a knitter, so I really liked it) and this (an inexpensive tulle wrap) when I was choosing mine.

I wore a shrug from MaryandAngelika! I loved it! I could really picture it with the second dress you posted, but not so much for the first (both are GORGEOUS btw).

I got an amazing long sleeved Pronovias lace Bolero at a sample sale for £100. They are beautifully made, and I took the lining out to give it more of a sheer look as this is what I was after. Look out for sample sales at local bridal salons, especially the ones that stock Pronovias. I think the first dress would look AMAZING with a lace bolero!
