dgwedding2015:  Have you asked the BM  what she thinks? Many larger women are also larger busted and would benefit from a dress with straps wide enough so that they can wear a good bra.

dgwedding2015:  “She keeps telling to just pick whatever I like and she will wear it, so she is making it rather hard.”

Ha ha, I think that’s technically the definition of making it rather easy.  😉

Pro tip: if you post a picture of the dress you are likely to get more responses.  But that said, most people wont know how a particular dress fits and it fits differntly on every body type.  You’ll need to get your maids to go try it on.

I agree with PP. Get them to try it on! It’ll be the only way to know for sure.

Good luck.

Is this the one?  Very elegant! 

As a bigger-busted lady, while a good bra means strapless is definitely possible, I would want to make sure there’s plenty of coverage up top. So many times I put on strapless dresses and felt like their should be another 2 inches of material up top and I kept pulling it up.  I don’t think you’re going to know unless she tries it on.  Otherwise you could add some diamonte spaghetti straps to hers just to help with the drop-down effect.  Trust me, it’s a p.i.t.a feeling like your nipples are only a few millimeters away from being on show.  Beautiful dresses thought! What colour?
