Hello y’all! I am new posting here but have lurked and found tons of helpful advice. I wanted to see what my fellow ladies thought about sleeves on my dress. There’s a weird area that usually doesn’t look so weird but being smushed in a dress the area between my arm pits and breast just looked funny. I picked out a pair of sleeves at my seamstress and I do like them but want to make sure it doesn’t look dated or weird. They fell down a bit in the pic but I’ll have them slightly higher on my shoulder. Let me know what your opinions?? I hope the photos look ok

Sleeves 110%! They make the dress here imo. I even like the placement. Looks beautiful!

No sleeves. I think your arms look better without to be perfectly honest. Gorgeous dress though, it really suits you 🙂

no sleeves, LOVE the simplicity of your dress, I dont love sleeves like that, I always think they are just falling off your shoulders.
But I LOVE the look with NO sleeves. Classic and timeless

You honestly cant go wrong either way, both look great on you and its a beautiful dress! I love the sleeveless for the classic strapless look but I also like the sleeves because they add something a bit different and more personal. It doesnt look dated at all so I think the decision is purely down to how you feel in the dress with and without sleeves. If youre stuck between the two I would start planning how you want your hair and what jewellery you want to wear and tie that in to the dress to see which would match best.

I’m a fan of the sleeves. I think they add something and I’m one of those folks that think the sleeveless look is overdone. My 2 cents! Either way looks beautiful, though.

I like the sleeves. But they need to be picked up onto your shoulders!

Beautiful dress, definitely sleeves, but I’d try pushing them up more as strap sleeves.

The area between your armpit and dress will look a bit strange no matter what strapless dress you wear. I’m a size 2/4 and the same thing happens. That said, I don’t think you need the sleeves, since what is happening is normal. AND, I wouldn’t have noticed it had you not said anything.
The sleeves make everything look bulky and your arms look wider and your shoulders a bit droopy. I think they take away from the style of the dress. I love the dress on you as it is, and I think the sleeves make it look old fashioned and make you look older. No sleeves!! You’ll get tired of them by the end of the night anyways. I love your dress.

VaticanCameos: I vote no sleeves as well. I think they are dated but that’s just me!
