Mine is sort of similar. Strapless and flowy. I’m very busty myself but I’m also a 22 so that’s sort of why lol anyway, here it is:

I am just going off what I hear from SYTTD Bridesmaids but they actually say busty women should wear strapless (as long as it is well fitted). I have heard on there that even though people tend to lean toward a one strap look for those well endowed it is less flattering.

But like I said I have just heard that. I love the first syle much better though too.

I think busty brides look best in strapless and you can find undergarments that will work wonders. I’d be nervous about these dresses on a plus-sized bride because of the lack of structure, but everyone’s body is different. You won’t know until you start trying them on.

@allyfally:  I’m not really sure how to describe it other than that… “structure” is part of dress terminology and refers to the amount of, well, strcuture in the design. These dresses are flowy and don’t have much to give them shape other than the body underneath them, which is often not flattering on many different body types.

@allyfally:  

38DDD here… and I tried on a chiffon empire strapless dress, and almost bought it! But I had to wear a full corset underneath, which was really uncomfortable and hot and stuffy…. So I went with a different dress that had a lot more built-in structure.

@TheFutureMrsNguyen:  Well seeing you with that dress sort of discourages me from buying the exact same dress! Though it looks better on you than it did on me.
