As long as there is boning holding it up, the girls (and their girls) will be fine. A good strapless bra is necessary though.

And yes, I’m a busty one at 36F.

ETA: They also need to make sure it fits them properly. They’ll most likely have it tailored anyway, so this shouldn’t be an issue.

@ClassicLady:  I’ve worn strapless dresses that didn’t have boning in them and it wasn’t the biggest issue but it does help a lot. It’s not a dealbreaker for me as long as it fits well. Not sure how you’d find out but chances are there’s something probably on the sides to keep the structure.

I’m a 36DDD and strapless is far more flattering than with straps on me. If the dress fits them properly, they should be fine. They can also use double sided fashion tape for extra security, if they like.

Also, a LOT of strapless dresses come with optional spaghetti straps they could have added if they want. I hate them because I feel like they’ll break, but others prefer them!

I just want to add, that i would show Major cleavage in that dress.  I’m a 36E/F.  I ordered my dress to fit my bust (which was 3 sizes larger than my normal size) and had it taken in majorly in the waist & hips.  After the ceremony, I put in the clip in straps and felt a lot more comfortable.  Maybe give your girls the option of putting spaghetti straps on the dress?  But as long as you are okay with yours bridesmaids showing cleavage, go for it, its a pretty dress!!
