Well, I think you look fabulous in the dress!  It looks great everywhere and doesn’t reveal too much bosom, but if you still feel a little uncomfortable maybe you can add one beaded strap?  They make some gorgeous lace jackets and boleros, but honestly you look perfect now.  Good luck with your decision!

I think you look really good in your dress.  I don’t think there’s anything you need to cover. Maybe have a seamstress help to give you ideas. The dress looks like it has light tulle or chiffon – maybe somehow the seamstress could find a way to use one of those materials to make a pretty bolero or sleeves.

First of you look gorgeous and I don’t think you need a thing!  And don’t worry about tugging on the dress to keep it up – if it’s been tailored properly and fitted to you, it won’t go anywhere!

If you do want so more coverage, I’d look at some kind of bolero.  Another Bee, Bakerella, had one in red that went with her shoes so maybe you could get one in a color that coordinates with your wedding.

I think it looks beautiful on you as is! I do like the idea of adding a pretty bolero if you’re self-conscious about being too bare. That way you can cover up a bit without making any alterations to the dress itself.

What about adding a flowery one shoulder strap?

@Adriana.Niva: A seamstress should be able to just pin it on or baste it on so you can get an idea of how it will look, but not have it be permanent right away.

And FutureKMM is right – a properly fitted dress (especially a boned dress) will not go ANYWHERE on you because the boning will not come down over your hips.

@Adriana.Niva: One other thought about the asymmetrical look. If you have broad shoulders, I would advise you away from something that draws attention to them. I have to do this all the time and can never wear something asymmetrical.

However, your mileage may vary!
