So, today I feel like every part of my wedding is going against conventional wisdom. If you followed the drama of my cash bar thread, you’d catch my drift. LORD! But, now I am laughing at myself AGAIN… This time the magazine I picked up said D+ cups should stay away from 2 things. 1) Sweetheart Necklines and 2) Halter Dresses. LMBO… See attached, which is my wedding dress and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and I’m gonna wear it, DD’s and all baby!!! Why does everyone think we want to minimize the girls, I heart my Barbie doll look…

Nice dress 🙂
I am also going against what the articles say. I am a D cup and I am short. I will be wearing a full ballgown with a sweetheart neckline. The people that have seen me in think it is the perfect dress for me and I do too. I don’t care what the articles say. I am going to wear what I want. I think everyone should wear what the want as long as they feel comfortable in it.

I have actually read that halter tops are good for women with large chests, so go figure! Glad you found a dress that you love!

Mine is also a halter and I am a D-cup. Personally I think the halter is much more flattering to a bigger bust.

Oh Jeez I’ve tried a halter and sweetheart. I feel a little like I’m popping out of the sweetheart, but it was also 2 sizes too small. lol.

I’d have to disagree about sweetheart being bad. My go-to formal dress is sweetheart and when I’m wearing a correctly sized bra it looks rather flattering.
However, I have seen some halters that reminded me of Wonder Woman’s chest piece once on (so unflattering but really funny!) I think it depends more on the design of the cups then being a halter.

D cup with a sweetheart dress here. I don’t see what the problem is unless you’re showing way too much clevage. Not all sweethearts are really that “low cut.” I think the sweetheart is flattering because it breaks up the uni-boob look. With a straight across neckline on a large chest, it just looks like a wall of boob.

I think the halter is a great choice for supporting the girls. The straight across strapless is the one that shold be avoided, not only because of uniboob but wonky-boobs in photos as well. Drives me crazy to see one boob higher or off to the side in a photo…..or the folds near the armpits from not being properly supported.

I think it totally depends on the shape and design of both the dress and the girls. I look awful in most halters, but sweethearts are fantastic on me.

I’m a 32DDD and I’m wearing a sweetheart neckline- go for it, who cares!

I agree with afbacher. There is no one “across the board” rule. Every woman has a unique shape, and two women with the exact size bra may look dramatically different in the same style dress. Heck, I never thought I would look good in a mermaid style (plus size gal here), but when I tried it on, I was blown away with how flattering it was on me.
Forget the rules, and choose what makes you feel beautiful .

please!, I’m a Dirty Delete and my dress is a halter. Sweetheart and halter look the best on us. I hate caplet sleeves and though I love the thought of a strapless, I look like I’ve got a shelf once the corset is on. Go for it.
