    You should do what makes you feel most beautiful, but I think you look fabulous.

    That dress makes you look like you have an hour glass figure and you do!

    In my opinion it looks fine. The dress is pretty it fits you nicely.

    But if you don’t feel comfortable and feel like it would be better to cover your arms then do it. You don’t need to but the pictures are going to be there forever and you shouldn’t feel self conscious.

    First let me say that your dress is GORGEOUS! It looks so beautiful on you. 


    I voted no, however I think you should do what makes you feel the most comfortable. If you do decide not to wear one, I think you should be prepared to bring one regardless just in case you feel uncomfortable at some point you’ll have it. Maybe even a light wrap?

    It is totally up to you. I think you look great just as is. I decided to “cover” my arms using a chiffon bolero and it worked well. Sometimes having sleeves can make your arms look larger but the chiffon really was flatting for me. Here is a pic if you are interested.

    Do whatever makes you feel most comfortable! You look beautiful in your dress without though!

    You look beautiful! The first thing I saw was how nice you looked. I don’t think you should cover them up because I think it might take away from the beauty of the dress. I am being super honest I think it looks gorgeous as is 🙂

    I second the idea for a wrap. In my opinion, the bolero would ruin the look of the dress.

    Try on different coverage options.  Some actually make arms look bigger.

    Don’t cover them, rock them!!

    A brief personal story: I wore lace sleeves ( as a personal preference of modesty not for weight) and I didn’t like the way it pictured! ( it made them appear larger than they were)
