So, I have bought THE dress! Very exciting! I was not at all looking forward to the dress shopping because I am plus sized and short. I had a horrible experience at Davids Bridal, but was able to come away with the dress. (One day I’ll post the “no’s” just for a laugh!)
I do think the dress is very flattering, but I’m concerned about my wide shoulders arms. I’m considering adding sleeves or wearing a bolero with it. What do you guys think?
I’ve also noticed that this is a very popular dress (It was only $500, afterall) and I have seen it in every bridal magazine I’ve bought but one. I guess I’m kind of looking for a pick-me-up to remind me that this is THE dress and will be beautiful on my wedding day!

O wow, you look stunning. Seriously. I know that’s a common dress, but I swear each bride I’ve seen in it or something like it totally seems to make it “theirs” just like you have.
I think your arms/upper body looks good as is, but if you are concerned I would do a bolero before I added sleeves.

Dress twin! I’m wearing the same dress for my wedding in August! Don’t you just love it??
You look absolutely stunning in it. I’m also a little worried about my arms (I call my under-arm area my “bat wings” and they REALLY need to GTFO!) and a little about my booty (For a Polish girl, I have some serious booty!), but how can you not feel beautiful in this dress?!

You look beautiful! I don’t think you need any kind of covering at all. Rock that dress, girl! 🙂

That dress is PERFECT for you! I don’t think you need to do anything for your shoulders and arms… But if it will make you feel better – Maybe a nice bolero? I saw another girl who wore that dress and added a halter strap… Idk if that would make a difference for your shoulders or not? Just giving ideas 😉 haha But really – you look great!

wow, that dress is absolutely beautiful i wouldn’t have guessed it was only $500.
I think your arms look fine and i don’t think your shoulders are that wide anyways but that dress looks gorgeous on you and is very flattering, it gives you a wonderful waist

Everyone hates their arms. I know I do, but that dress looks amazing on you and doesn’t single out your arms.

That is a beautfiul dress! I’m not sure what your concern with your arms is though- there’s nothing to worry about!

BEAUTIFUL! The dress looks like it fit’s perfectly, and I would not wear a bolero if I were you – you look fantastic without one. I think it would look fab with a classic cut-edge elbow or chapel length veil.

i think the dress is gorgeous! I think you look beautiful and wouldnt worry about covering your arms there is nothing wrong with them!
However if your seriously self concious and there is no way I cant talk to you out of it; then maybe a cute little bolero! I dont think you need it but thats my 2cents haha.
