I have a busty bridesmaid too and I really want sweetheart strapless dresses but I want her to feel comfortable. She requested no strapless. She’s gravitating towards V necklines

not strapless or anything low cut. V necklines, not-lowcut sweetheart, and spaghetti or thin straps work well, or the dressed with only one shoulder.

 

Also- armpit holes can be altered by a seamstress (within reason) for fairly cheap, so keep that in mind. The last wedding I was in I had to take down the armpit holes an inch each. I’m not especially busty but I am thin with broad shoulders, which for some dresses causes issues.

 

I was in a wedding recently with 2 girls with large busts, and I swear they pulled this dress off amazing (http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/2858/#.VByDDDYZ4RA), I hated wearing it, but mostly because the bride made us wear an AWFUL color. The necline may work for your bridesmaid as well.

im a sz 4 with 32GG boobs so i guess im busty. I wore a 1 shoulder dress like the one pictured. It was made for me by an etsy seller…all i had to do was provide my measurements.

 

I didnt wear a bra and it had boning.

I’m busty, and I always prefer classic v-necks with straps, but really anything with straps is a massive improvement over strapless.  I was in a wedding last Saturday, and I STILL have bruises on my ribcage from the weight of my bust pushing into the boning on my strapless bra.  It’s been a painful week wearing bras at work.

My favorite look is something like this, so I can still wear a regular bra.  But, she really just needs to try some on and see if they work.

I also tried this one on at DB, and liked it, but it was vetoed by the bride:( http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Sleeveless-Chiffon-Dress-with-Ruffled-Back-Detail-F15530_Bridal-Party-Bridesmaids-Long-Bridesmaid-Dresses

Thank you for keeping her in mind!

Alexia Designs 4148 worked well for the wedding I was in recently. We all wore the same dress and had varying cup sizes, from B – DDD (The DDD being the slimmest girl). For some reason the short version is the only one on the website, but since we just wore them in July, they should be available

But it was basically this dress with a little less ruching and way less cleavage (pic from Eden Bridesmaids).
