    Whatever you feel comfortable in! If you like the wrap you can always wear it for the ceremony and then take it off when your ready to dance.

    Needed?  No, absolutely not.  The dress is beautiful and it looks wonderful on you!  Sometimes I think wraps or boleros can make things more noticeable because you are trying to hide them. That being said some people, like me, loooooove the look of boleros.  So if that’s you and you want one, then go for it.  It sounds to me though like you’re just worried that one is needed and I say no way.  You look wonderful!

    I honestly think you look just gorgeous and that you dont NEED a bolero/wrap. 

    Do what you think will make you feel the most beautiful though!

    You could wear one if you wanted, but you definitely don’t need one.

    (Personally, I love love love boleros, but I know not everyone shares the love… or is getting married somewhere that’s a tad bit warmer than here!)

    I would wear one if you feel uncomfortable but don’t think of it as a need. Def consider it another fun wedding accessory. I’m a big bolero/wrap fan for girls from a 0 on up, I just think it’s an elegant look.

    I agree with everyone else… the dress looks beautiful on you AS IS.

    However, you need to feel 110% beautiful and confident. If the bolero will help you achieve this, then go for it. The dress is beautiful and would look just as killer accented with a bolero.

    Go with which ever way makes you feel inside as beautiful as you look on the outside.

    @stressedbride2be:

    You don’t need a bolero.

     

    I am a similar size to you and admittedly I bought one = but it had nothing to do with my size and was actually to do with my torso shape.

     

    I have an extremely short torso and a very long gap between my bust and my neck. As a result with my strapless wedding dress -all you can focus on without a bolero is my scary fluoro pale wide expanse of skin between my bust and neck.

    The friend doing my alterations was so-so about my dress – until I said – check it out with the bolero that I bought and then she was like – oh well that is so much better.

    But the reason it was so much better was only because it hid the freakish expanse of skin between my bust and neck.

     

    Your dress however totally flatters your neckline and bust and I don’t think you need a bolero.

    Your arms are nice and firm… wear it if you want it, but don’t think you need to cover up.  You look lovely.

    Not NEEDED, but you’d be surprised sometimes at how adding the right bolero can actually add to the beauty of your dress. 🙂

    @stressedbride2be:

     

    If it were ME, i would choose whatever made me feel more comfortable. Knowing myself, i would be self concious of it all day. The wrap would help.

    But i am not you…You pick what you like the best. You look great without it and i am sure you would look great with it.

    Not needed, but if you want to have something just in case you feel like it- I think a wrap would be more elegant.  You look nice though!  The neckline is very attractive.
