I think the first one would work really well for a busty girl! It looks like it has some support and the rouching makes your boobs look like they are nice and tucked in lol. The second one though I’m not so sure. I hated wearing anything like that top when I was busty casue it just looked weird on me. But if they can have the option to wear the first one I think that would be great!

Also, forgot to add that the straps on the first one look a lot more supportive and the straps on the second one will dig into your neck if you’ve got bigger boobs. Seriously, those kind of necklines can be painful lol.

I agree with natbug21.  The first one would be great, I think.  The second one… not so much.  I’m busty, and I think I would look pregnant in it.

@techie: ok now that you said the straps are optional on the one, I think they both could work. Although with the straps and the bra clips and everything, I think the first one is the best bet! And honestly I think I like the first one better anyways πŸ™‚

I would definitely vote for the first one.  Have you tried doing a google image search?  Usually you can find wedding pictures of people wearing the dress and you can see how it looks on real people.

I am a busty girl like your Bridesmaid or Best Man (F) and I can tell you that the first one is going to be way more flattering. The attention falls to the neckline whereas, the second one goes straight to the bust. Also, with the halter, your bustier BM’s dress may have a different look than the rest due to gravity. πŸ˜‰

I have some very busty BMs as well. when i took them in to get measured and such, the alterations lady told me that when you look at the side of the dress where the bust ends (if that makes sense) if there’s a decent amount of fabric, it generally means that it will hold the girls in of most sizes without spillage πŸ™‚

I’m busty and I think the first one would be way more flattering. That’s the kind of neckline I go for in my everyday dresses. Both are really pretty though (:

I am having the same issue with 2 of my brides maids. The material you choose is key. chiffon and chameause have had the best fit on my girls so far. I like the first dress the most the straps will give them more support and be most flattering. Where is that dress from btw πŸ™‚

The second one wouldn’t be bad, but the first one would be amazing. Love the dresses!
