I am extrememly busty and was a bridesmaid who wore a J Crew dress.  It wasn’t a chiffon one, but it was one of the cotton ones.  I chose the dress that looked like it would give me the most coverage (they don’t even make it anymore) and while it was lower than I might normally wear, it wasn’t obscene.  Other than that I found the dress really comfortable, that it flattered my shape, and I felt really good in it.  I don’t know how close you live to one of their bridal stores, but if you’re really concerned you could have one of the bridesmaids stop in.  PM if you need/want any other information or pictures.  Good luck!

@GreenGarnet:  Is there a strapless option that’s not umpire? Often, that gives me the most coverage, especially when I have a dress altered. If there are straps, sometimes, you only have so much wiggle room to adjust the rise on the chest of the dress. Maybe ordering the dress in tall could help too as long as some of the extra length is in the torso, not just the skirt.
