Haha I completely understand where you’re coming from but will slightly GRACEFULLY disagree. As having cleavage my whole life, it can be pretty hard to hide those bad boys if you know what I’m saying Wink  When I do buy a dress I plan on showing some cleave because I find it one of my best features.  But I do agree with you that their is a very fine line, especially if it makes your guests or those around you uncomfortable.  But c’est la vie!

I see both sides of it. I’m really busty so it can be hard to find something that completely covers them up without looking like a frumpy grandmother, especially when it comes to dresses.

That being said…if it’s something like a wedding dress where you’re spending a ton of money to have it fit you perfectly, you do have more control over what you’re showing. I think ultimately it comes down to the person and what they’re comfortable with (although I do agree that there is a line between daring and trashy).

I don’t have anything against cleavage, and it’s pretty hard to avoid for the well endowed ladies, but I get what you’re saying about the dress size thing.  I think a lot of brides just don’t buy dresses in the right size.  I get planning to trim down and get in shape for the wedding, but I think it’s absurd when brides order dresses 2 or more sizes too small.  And then 1 month before the wedding there’s a panicked “I need to lose 10 (15, 20, etc) pounds!”  I think the cleavage issues aren’t always so much an issue of trying to be sexy, but stuffing yourself in a dress that isn’t truly the right fit.

@bellasperanza:  I’m agreeing 100 percent. I’m a double d and found it very hard to find something nice, that covered up a bit, without being totally covered to my neck.

I don’t have anything even approaching cleavage so I haven’t got a dog in this fight but…. isn’t it true for all ladies that an ill-fitting boulder holder is just UNCOMFORTABLE? Having your boobs smooshed up and out and spilling over your cups – how is that comfy? I don’t get it. I mean, even with little boobs I know the importance of a good bra fit. It seems like the fit of a strapless dress top should be as important, both for prevention of nip-slips and for the comfort of the lady wearing it.

I definitely have seen some poorly fitting dresses – and this is not just limited to weddings! 

But seriously, the most impoctant dress of your life, get it fitted!

I just ordered my dress today and it definitely shows some cleavage.  It’s VERY hard for me to find ANYTHING that doesn’t show cleavage.  The rest of the dress was just SO perfect I couldn’t say no.  Cleavage is cleavage.  As long as the rest of the dress isn’t sexy or your nipples aren’t on the verge of popping out, I don’t see a big deal.

Maybe you shouild stop looking! I personally think showing too much isn’t my style, but it’s none of my business what someome else chooses to wear on their wedding day.I also have double dds and sometimes despite my best efforts even wearing some thing lowkey like a tank top can make me come off looking like a porn star.

To be 100 percent honest, here, I find this view to be off-putting, especially from someone who doesn’t have to struggle with having a large chest. I tried on over 50 dresses trying to find one that covered my 38Gs. I finally found one, and then my seamstress took in my cups too much, a few weeks before the wedding. They were still covered, but there was definite cleavage. Just realize that a lot of us would like to be without cleavage, but it’s not exactly possible once they reach a certain size.

I think too you shoud be careful to judge. Many brides have to try on sample dresses and they are not in the correct size or altered.

I am a small girl, I’m a size 6/8 nz which I think is a 2/4 to most of you. I’m also very short, but, I have massive boobs. I’m a 10E so I will definitely have cleavage in my wedding dress unless I want to look like a nun. I’ll try not to be overflowing but it’s not easy to find dresses when your proportioned like this. I think you need to get over it, as long as there isn’t too much other skin showing then there’s nothing wrong with a bit of cleave!

Totally agree with op miss t rex!!! It looks horrible with the boobies coming out where you can almost see nipple?! Not how i want people to remember me at my wedding!!

Theres two stories here:

1, they look like that bc theybtihink they look good..

2, they have no idea how to alter a dress to make it fit.


I have huge boobs and i ordered a dress that would keep them covered and snug. And it it comes in and its not tight enough, i will have it altered! And i will still look hot even though u cant see my nipples! Lol

Cleavage usually doesn’t bother me, but I recently saw an episode of Randy’s Rescue or whatever it is and this girl had EVERYTHING OUT.  The only thing covered up was her nipples.  It was a little too much for me.  

And I get that it could have been a sample that was just too small, but she was raving about how well it fit.  But to each their own.

My future mother in law is making my dress, and should my girls be showy I’ll have her fix it to not show them as much as possible. My dress does have a sweetheart neckline though and I am a busty girl. lol.
