I have a wedding to go to on June 28 and have been looking for something to wear. I keep seeing the JCrew cotton cady dresses and think one of those might be great, but I don’t own a lot from JCrew and am worried about the fit. Ebay has a ton of the cotton cady dresses marked down to $98 and in a ton of sizes, I’m just not sure what size to get. I’m rather large on top, but wear a size 8 pant.
Has anyone worn the JCrew Janey dress in a wedding? Thats the one I really like, but I’m worried my bewbs are going to be overbearing because of the deep V. What you you ladies think? If anyone has worn any of teh cotton cady dresses, pictures would be great! Thank you.

I am also busty, and I buy a lot from J.Crew. I find their dresses to fit more comfortably a size up. I usually wear an 8 but in J.Crew, I get a 10 to fit the bust. I’m 36DD. The Janey does have a deeper V, so you may need to be careful with the bra you choose and you may be able to weare a cami under.
Since the wedding isn’t until June, I would suggest ordering a size up and if it doesn’t fit, go to a tailor and get it taken in.

I had a very busty friend of mine try that specific dress on, and it looked fine…and nothing was "popping."

They’ll often put a dress on sale just because they’re switching out the colors for the season… They may have the dress in store but in the more recent colors. you may want to stop by and check out whether this is the case and see if you can try it on. or order it online (in a different color), try it on, send it back if necessary.

All the J Crew dresses I have bought have been very close to true size. It may be just me, but I thought I would give my 2 cents!
