I’m on the fence… It’s stunning, but as a fellow busty lady, I just want to caution you of it falling down and making you super self conscious. Pulling dresses up all night so the girls stay hidden makes me crazy, so i am drawn to straps. But… To each his own and it is a gorgeous dress!

Hmmm… it is a pretty dress, but I almost feel like it’s wearing you, instead of the other way around. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about how it falls across your chest.

If you do decide to go with it though, you’re going to look gorgeous no matter what. 🙂

Wow.  That dress looks awesome on you!  My only concern is that it does draw a lot of attention to your chest, which is fine as long as you are comfortable with that.  Is the sample in the size you are going to order?

I don’t like it because I think it is very “OMG THERE ARE YOUR BOOBS.” I’m not anti-strapless for busty gals, but I just think this one with the deep v and the pointy top of the strapless really over-accentuates it.

Too much cleave. If it isn’t altered JUST right, you’ll have the big gap/boob shelf/look down the dress thing going on, and if it is altered tight enough to not have that happen, it’s pushing them up and out of the dress. JMO.

You have a GREAT body and I think you can do better/classier.

I think you may be a little too busty for this particular design.

@rachelmichelle:  I also agree that the dress may be ‘wearing you’ as opposed to you wearing the dress.

I know you love it, OP, and that is what really matters on YOUR day, but as you are asking for opinions, I think you could find something more flattering.

It is kind of froofy and boobtacular. It has potential, though. It would be nice if the sweetheart weren’t quite so deep. A little more softness in the skirt, and maybe a bolero would be nice. The beading is quite lovely.

Honestly, I’m not a fan. I think it’s a bit too busy and wears you.

@whereismy:  Wear a dress that suits you, boobs and all, rather than trying to work around one that doesn’t.

It’s nice but my first thought was “holy boobs!” but then again it could be better in the chest area if fitted properly

@whereismy:  I think you’d have to order at least 2 – 3 sizes up to have enough fabric to cover the chest when fitted properly and then have the rest altered down. There’s no way one size up is going to cover to make it less boob-tastic.

And seriously, these are straight on shots. You’ll be shocked at how many of your photos the day of have you leaning forward or from somewhat above. Even with a more modest-in-the-chest-area dress, you’ll have cleavage. This one is going to be quite extreme IMO.

I’m with the others. Perhaps a different dress shape that accomodates the twins more securely! Trust me, this bee in particular would love to be in your predicament 🙂 My mosquito bites get lost in most dresses!
