Do you have a picture of the dress so we can get a better idea? Maybe a seamstress can sew together the sides of the sweetheart or something?

I gotta say, anything larger than a B cup and sweetheart necklines are going to be a problem… 

Rather having the dress altered, could they wear strapless minimizer bras?

Well, I’m a DD/E and I prefer sweetheart b/c i actually find them to be the most flattering/LESS boobylicious thing I could be wearing. If they wear the dress with the appropriate bra underneath, there shouldn’t really be a problem. My last strapless was something that would show me off more, but I recently got a longline bra and i find that it shows off my breasts less and holds them in place versus pushing them up more.

I think good undergarments are the way to go.

And, sometimes, you can’t just hide big boobs–you can make the problem worse by making her look so unflattering all you notice is “wow that dress looks bad!” so if you can support them properly and cover her enough, she’ll be ok. She may have to wear the dress up a little higher than she’d prefer–which i’ve done before. Which looks silly because the sash/waist part is up higher, but oh well, what can you do?!

maybe you could have them alter it with some cloth or lace to hide the boobs a little.

artbee beat to what I was going to say. I think that if you talked to a seamstress they should be able to put a privacy panel and/or build up some lace or other fabric behind the sweetheart where the cleavage is. Also, the gown may not be fitting her right. Have her talk to a seamstress to see if the top is too small for her. The gown may just need to be altered to fit better.

Maybe they could add some kind of modesty panel to the dresses to help cover up the cleavage.  Good undergarments could really help too.

as a fellow big boobied girl, i second and third and fourth GOOD UNDERGARMENTS. usually if someone is wearing a crappy bra with strapless stuff, they will get that “hooker trashy” look. get a good bra/corset and they will be able to rock it without looking like streetwalkers 🙂

sweetheart is usually the MOST flattering for big boobies though. so im guessing either the size is wrong or they arent wearing the wrong undergarments. 🙂 good luck!!!

Isn’t it annoying that these things never look risque on the models?!   I think it’s because the models usually have no boobage because they are so skinny!  I like the idea of a lae modesty piece!

Oh My, as a very large breasted woman, I can tell that dress would show mine to the world!  I am sorry this is happening.  Is it too late to return them?  I don’t mean to be discouraging.  As others said, sometimes you just can’t hide big ones.  At my sisters wedding, she had straps added so at least the strapless dresses were held up as high as possible for the large-breasted ladies.

Hum.  Maybe it has to do with the plunge of the “v”?  My opinion is taken from my MOH, who tends to be rather unequivocal about these things.  So perhaps I should’ve qualified my answer.  Embarassed

this would bother me too. No bride wants the attention on the boobs. I’m a DD and i dont like to show mine. I would recomend buying a shall in that same material and adding material to the front of the chest area. or you could even have someone make the dresses knee length and take the bottom material to the top part. And maybe even add some straps to the dress. I think a think halter strap would probably cover the sides a little. I recommend no bra also(if possible) When i wear a bra they look up and huge. When i dont..they look smaller. So maybe you can try that.

Heres an example…i tried a dress on that showed major boobs so i added this cloth material to cover a little. Im sure you can find different types of cloth. This cloth is from DB
