What’s the best dress shape for large breasted women? What dresses worked for you? Are you going with strapless? Adding straps or built in cups?
I’m a 32F and the idea of not wearing a bra is absolutely horrific to me, but all the bridal consultants keep telling me that a good dress with boning and built in cups should do the trick. I have my doubts.

@murfed13: HAHA! I don’t know why, but “Chesty” cracks me up.
I am “chesty” too, and my alteratiions woman sewed a strapless bra right into my dress. Some women can carry off going without a bra on their big day, but the alterations woman wanted to give me support, but also the bra actually gave the dress more structure than it would have had without it, if that makes sense.
Tip: Don’t have your alterations people make your dress as tight as they possibly can, otherwise your cleavage is going to be up to your chin, which is really not attractive. I had to have her loosen it up, because it didn’t look natural to have the dress as tight as a small chested woman can.

I am a “chesty” bride as well. I was concerned about finding a dress to a)fit my chest and b)not shove them up to my chin or create the dreaded boob shelf. I found a Robin Jillian dress that I could wear without a bra! With the correct alterations I think I can make it all day like this. The fabric and boning in the dress support my chest really well, keeping them in the right place….something I thought would never happen! The shop owner told me I would be able to tell the difference as soon as I put it on, and by golly she was right.
