I am blessed in the chest as well, and I have found that designs like that dress make me look a lot bigger than I really am. It is a beautiful dress, but it might not work for you 🙁

@laekna:  that would help a lot. as long as it is more fitted in the waist I think it would be much more flattering. I guess you are like me….tiny waist and huge tatas. I love the “flowy” style that is in now, but I can never wear any of that stuff bc it adds about ten pounds!!

I absolutely love art deco style dresses like Keira Knightley wore in Atonement. I was a late bloomer and when I had smaller boobs these dresses looked awesome, but even with a C this style looks awkward on me now. 🙁

I’m a DD and I personally do the whole “rock whatever I want” attitude.  I don’t let nature hold me down.

I’m a DD, too.  That dress would not be too flattering on me.

A real vintage beauty.
I recieved my Aiguille dress a couple of days ago and I am thrilled with it. As mentioned in other reviews it has a real vintage feel and it more creamy/nude toned than depicted in the photography.
I am a UK 12 (US 10) with curves and the dress is a perfect fit. It’s a really flattering shape and surprisingly comfortable too which always helps! The only critisism I have is that the slip underneath is a tiny bit too short on me (I’m 5’7) but this is easily sorted and doesn’t detract from how much I love this dress.
I was a bit concerned that the dress would be overly low cut showing a bit too much cleavage but it really isn’t, the images are deceptive as the model has a more boyish frame.
One thing to keep in mind if you’re ordering outside the USA is to factor the tax/duty fee into the price when making your decision to order.
If you have any questions I’d strongly advise contacting a BHLDN stylist, I was in contact with the lovely Angela and she was endlessly patient and helpful.

I just love this era of fashion but it was definitely made to flatter more “boyish” figures. I don’t think my ample bosom would be flattered by the combination of the shininess and blousiness of that top. I do think it’s important, if you have a large chest on a small torso and/or with a small waist, to have a dress that hugs you right underneath the chest (around your rib cage) to clearly delineate things so it doesn’t look like a solid wall of boob.

I think something like the dress jen 42713 posted would be better because a v-neck usually helps minimize the “bosomy” look and because of the more defined waist.

I feel your pain… I really like the dress, but I have 32DD’s and it would not flatter me. Blousy tops definitely make me look bigger than I am. Go for something fitted up top and flowy on the bottom to balance your shape.

Agree w/PPs that the top isn’t flattering on anyone with boobs.  

The dress jen 42713 posted, though, would be a lot more flattering.

I have some DDs of my own, and those types of dresses are NEVER flattering on me.
