    Is this the Davids Bridal Melissa Sweet? You look great in it!! Its very classic and romantic. Personally, I like without sleeves, and don’t think you need to cover anything! Can you try on some clip on sleeves in the store? It might help you decide.

    adding my sleeve to my dress got rid of my dress regret.

    i think this dress would look pretty with flowy caps


    I saw something on pinterest- an excersize to target that area of your arm for the big day.

    I, personally, prefer sleeves over strapless almost all the time. But I think you look great as is, so it’s really just a personal preference.

    I am never in favour of adding sleeves to a strapless dress. I love sleeves if the dress is originally designed that way. I think adding sleeves to a dress that is intended to be strapless only brings MORE attention to the area that you want to cover up. For me, it’s obvious when a dress has been altered to have sleeves, which I personally think cheapens it. Plus, your body looks beautiful in that dress, without straps!

    Beautiful as is!  What a lovely gown!


    How about a bolero so you can go sleeves and no sleeves when you want?

    SLEEVES. Your upper body looks naked. I hardly ever like sleeveless dresses though. I really don’t understand why they’re so popular.


    I think you would look better with a nice cap sleeve.

    I vote no sleeves! I’m partial to sleeveless gowns though. It’s hard for me to imagine what it will look like with sleeves, but if you would be more comfortable I say go for it! I’m sure it will be a stunning gown either way 🙂 A bolero could be a great idea if you want to mix it up and have the option to go back to strapless if you them tone up the way you want.

    I definitely vote sleeves. But not because you’re “fat.” I just think a cap sleeve (or whatever sleeve design you prefer) would look elegant and lovely and I can really visualize the top with that added detail. I would definitely go for it.

    You look great. No way should you add sleeves.
