I’m all for dressing for your shape and buying a dress that fits properly.

I ordered my dress 4 sizes too big to fit my boobs.  I’m going to have some major alterations done to make it fit everywhere else, but I wanted to be sure my boobs were as covered as possible.  There will still be cleavage, as it’s a sweetheart neckline, but my boobs will fit in the cup area of the dress at least.  There’s a little side boob/armpit fat but I have that even with nothing on.  It has nothing to do with ill-fitting attire.

My DH wanted cleavage and I gave him all I could without feeling immodest. I have a size D cup and even for me there were some dresses that were just not going to work, I can’t imagine what larger chested women go through.

I think everyone is different in their views of what is and isn’t appropriate. If the dress fits correctly and the bride is comfortable and feels amazing it is not my place to say whether or not there is too much cleavage. What is too much to some isn’t always too much to others (just ask my DH). 🙂

I don’t mind cleavage so much but it’s the spillover/boob-muffin top that bugs me. I don’t know if their alterations were just bad or they’re trying to make it tighter to add more cleavage, but it’s just not a good look. I wish there were more strapped dress options because strapless is just really hard to fit properly & stay up for a lot of body types.

I see where you’re coming from, those pictures posted by a PP are on the extreme side, but as a big chested girl myself, I found you’re original post rather rude and judgemental.  It’s hard to cover it up the girls completely and not have something up to our chins.  Especially as a PP said, strapless rules the wedding dress world. And even for those people who do cross the “line”, who are we to judge? As my mum always told me, if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all

The grass is always greener, right? If you don’t know what it’s like to have bigger ta-ta’s…don’t be so quick to judge the ladies who do! 😉

I had to buy a new dress with only 3 weeks left until my wedding (long story short, my alterations guy ruined my first dress). With that said, the options in that timeframe were very limited. I had to buy a sample. I found a dress that was pretty and everyone I showed pictures to absolutely loved it. I was really uncomfortable with how low-cut it was, but even my grandmother was insisting that I get it. So, I bought that dress and have received nothing but enthusiastic compliments on it…

@jo.lee:  I agree 100% with you, I too have G cup breasts and i am a tiny size 8 AU (not sure what the US equivalent is).

To the original poster – I didn’t ask for these huge boobs and have trouble finding clothes that fit and finding a wedding dress to cover my boobs was sometimes humiliating and embarrassing so I am quite offended someone would start a post like this. Some of us can’t help but show a bit of cleavage so maybe you could keep your comments to yourself.

@MrsVandykins:  Yup also agreed. 

When I read the original post I thought if you don’t have cleavage then how could you possibly understand what its like?  Of couse that means I interpretted it to mean that you have smaller breasts and so cleavage its not an issue I suppose you could have also meant you will not be showing any off in your dress which is your personal preference and that is fine too. 

I don’t have G’s but I do have D’s.  I have had breasts since I was 10 years old.  It was awkward. 

Here’s how I feel about it I have breasts, there’s no hiding them.  All women have boobs, small, large whatever.  No matter what most women wear people can see your breast size, they are just there.  And when you have breasts of a certain size it is hard for people not to notice them, and often it is really difficult to find clothes that fit right.  If I have clevage in a shirt then so be it.  It’s hard enough to find shirts that have enough material to allow my breasts to fit in there never mind worrying about how much is showing.  I can’t fathom what it must be like to have breasts larger than mine. 

Even in shirts that don’t have cleavage when I bend over to get something bam there is clevage.  Oh well I have breasts the world will just have to deal with it.  I’m not going to hide them.  No one would ever say, hey you flat chested girl you need a little more omph up there why don’t you go get a push up bra?  So its equally not okay to say hey you with the cleavage you need to cover those bad boys up.

It works both ways.

@doobie: wow! You would think this would be common sense, a bride with A cup boobs wouldn’t have D cups on her dress, so I don’t know why these D (or more) cup brides tried to pull of A cups on their dresses…

I think its very offensive to be judgmental…

I am very self-conscious about by DDs. And reading about how cleavage is inappropriate when you simply can’t help it, does not help the matter. I say if your small chested – just deem yourself lucky and don’t judge woman that are larger.

And its not about buying the dress in the wrong size – I would think any girl buying a wedding dress relies on the consultant to measure you. And in probably 80% of the cases they recommend it bigger.

The OP stated that she didn’t find cleavage offensive, just not excessive amounts on display and explained that the bride in question when she hugged her that everything showed.  If I’m understanding correctly, she was referring to the bride’s nipples showing when she bent over.

Cleavage is fine, but nipples showing when someone bends over, not so great in my book.  I’m a Dear Daughter, a little cleavage is pretty much a given, but I can see the OP’s point about so much that bending over results in everything showing.
