I’m quite large in the chest area, and the sales associate recommended that I try the full size dress on. So while the size 10 fit me everywhere else, I needed a 16 to fit my chest. I bought the larger size and am having it tailored down everywhere else. I felt WAY too uncomfortable with my chest on display like that.

I think they are both fantastic! I’m a 38G, so I get the busty worry. #1 it is way way making you pop out due to the dress not being the right size. I think when it is closer to your size, it will fit like #2 on top. You could order more material and appliques from the same maker and have them add some appliques or detail to narrow the V (if necessary) or make it just higher on the bust and widen the straps a bit.

Kinda like this….http://www.favorideas.com/learn-about/wedding-attire/how-to-choose-the-right-wedding-dress-style-for-your-body-type/attachment/1b240f4201e121e912a5220718426bcb/ OR http://www.plussizebridal.co.uk/plus-size-gown-gallery/allure-bridals.html

You could also try on dresses with a corset and raised neckline. Like these

Order the dress for your largest part (chest) and have the rest altered down. That’s what I did for my 32DDDs and it worked out perfectly.

I loved the Essence of Australia dress 2109 but I didn’t buy it as it was very low cut. A little like the Stella York you posted. The dress was so beautiful though, I regret not getting it and maybe just putting some extra fabric across the cleavage as a modesty panel.

Stephanie Beranek :  I have DD’s and my Romona Keveza dress was able to be ordered with DD’s. The sales associate told me standard cup sizes in gowns are a B (totally a joke for big boob broads). I ended up going bra-less and was totally fine with my DD size dress! See if they can do that for you!

30G here! My dress has a low V neck that just splits in the middle all the way down my torso, but has built in cups and illusion mesh up to my collar. I don’t mind showing some cleavage as long as it’s contained and I don’t feel like my boobs are falling out everywhere – the built in cups and mesh help with that.

I’m a 30HH and bring it ups silicone breast lifts in size XL were a godsend for me on my wedding day. They cost about $20 on Amazon–I would recommend them to all busy ladies before you stress about strapless bras or internal corsets.

That first dress looks amazing on you!  Such an awesome shape and style for a larger bust (I refused to go near strapless or sweethearts, however much other people tried to convince me it would flatter my 30G self, I know me and I would NOT have been comfortable.)

 

My advice… get the dress you’re most confident in and one that is fairly supportive (I fell in love with a low back sheath dress and I have spent nearly £300 on undergarments that still have to be modified for me to be able to wear it!

Stephanie Beranek :  I’m not having anything built in, my dress is quite unstructured with a silk sheath/slip underneath.  The boutique said that the seamstress can add cups – to which I call BS (no one knows my boobs like I do and sewn in cups will not cut it!)

 

So far I have bought this:

http://www.enderlegard.com/collections/backless/products/holly-backless-lace-bodice-with-underwired-soft-cups-ivory

the didn’t do a 30G but I ordered the 36D and its pretty close.  With a few alterations it will be fine, I’m going to talk to my seamstress about adding extra support to this instead of the dress, just to make sure everything is held in throughout the day.

 

I also have one of these, I bought it to go dress shopping and it’s the most comfortable thing ever!  I found it gave a little extra support for the ol’ girls so I might ask about it being modified at the back and a new bra sewn in to see if it works better than the Ender Leggard.

I don’t know about anyone else but I’m prepared to loose some money searching for the right solution to the bust just because of the amount of grief I’ve had over the years.  I refuse to have it on my wedding day (probably should have just picked a more supportive dress, lol).

Stephanie Beranek :  The lady at the dress shop convinced me there is no way a panel like that would work, which is why I didnt buy the dress. But when I was getting alterations for the dress I did buy, the seamstress said that it totally would have worked!

Stephanie Beranek : 

Just to say I think the shape of the SY 6245 ‘s bodice is the nicest  on you . The EOA first dress is hard to tell because obviously too small in the  in the boobage, but is a beautiful dress .

 The last you just  posted isn’t (sorry) very flattering   at all imho, but that may be because you are standing a  bit hunched over? ?
