Ok I have to say that a lot of busty ladies tend to stay away from strapless but strapless sometimes works BETTER. We think that V-Neck is good, or halter top, but really, do you want to be hanging out on your wedding day? lol. Strapless keeps things tight and lifted, and if you get a corset and a sewn-in bra, they aren’t going anywhere!! If you get sleeves of some sort, get corset too, extra support.

I am Big Chested, Size 16 and going with a  Strapless, corset back! It holds me all in!! Try some on before you boot the idea! =) And in my personal experience until you try on styles on YOUR body you wont know what you like, we all got curves in different spots. For example I was DEAD SET on a Strapless ball Gown with a Bejeweled belt. I got to try it on, and bawled my eyes out, it was the most horrible looking thing ON ME! So dont be afraid! And try some different styles on and see what you like and dont like. Same goes for the Fabric! I said no Taffeta, my dress is Bordeaux Taffeta. lol. BEST OF LUCK!

I’m a 34 Dirty Delete and a street sized 2 everywhere else.  I personally find any formal dresses or even club tops that have straps to be way too heavy around my neck/shoulders, so I don’t imagine a W.D will be any different.  I LOVE bustier styles and plan on getting one.  With the right undergarnments, I bet a strapless would be more comfty for you for a night of dancing 🙂

36 Dirty Delete – DDD (depends on the bra) I bought a strapless dress first, and just felt so uncomfrotable every time I tried it on that I ended up going with a halter. I love how it makes my shape look and hides some of the boob/armpit flab. Also I definitely suggest a corset back!

I’m a 34G and a size 4 everywhere else and was absolutely DREADING wedding shopping because of my figure.  Everyday shopping blows hard enough, but to go spend hundreds -possibly thousands- on a dress that wouldn’t look right was enough to make me sick.  I found that corsets/lace up gowns are the way to go.  Of course, you then order the size that fits the largest part of your body and alter down from there.  Which, by the way, is a whole ‘nother source of anxiety because oh my gosh what if they screw it up?!
