- Wedding: October 2013
I’m small but have curves (I’m a 30F), and I could not wear a V-neck because it exposes too much of my breasts (the shape works for me if I’m going out with friends or at the beach, but I’m just not comfortable being that exposed for a formal event). However, a sweetheart neckline works wonders, plus it shows my cleavage tastefully. So, whatever shape, it really depends on how you are comfortable with the girls (and the family). 🙂
@leenh78: I have the same dress. I am definitely larger (weight) than you, but we are the same height.
I had the v-neck adjusted a teeny bit to give me a bit more coverage.
Because I’m so large in the chest, I felt more secure in a dress with straps rather than strapless. Those straps really helped in restraining the chest and making sure everything stayed where it should!
@MayaBean: I’m a 44Dear Daughter. But I went dress shopping yesterday and I finally found the right dress for me!!!
@CelticBeachBride: Mine was too tight in the tummy as well! Emma probably is my second choice but I picked out my dress yesterday so I feel like a real bride now!! Mine has sort of cap sleeve straps too, and yeah, they just make me feel more confident!
@jadlnc: Well my Fiance loves my cleavage and I wear low cut shirts just so he can see it. He’s really the only reason I’d consider it but I’m pretty sure he’ll have a hard time keeping his hands off me as it is so I vetoed the v-neck style. I think if I had the right kind of bra, though. then I would have been fine, lol.
@NauticalDisaster: Um yeah, in your case I think I would feel the same way. I mean I have a large chest but I’m a larger girl so it sort of balances out. I wish I had had larger breasts when I was a smaller size, though, haha, after having them now I really like them.
Both these dresses are on my to try list. Being an hourglass plus zize with a full 38Dear Daughter, I dont follow any rules, I walk to the beat of my own drum and am very proud of my chest. Although I dont like to flaunt it so much, I WILL be trying the Gianna Dress. PLunge looks Amazing on curvy girls…will post pics when I do!
i’m wearing one! DD+ and 5’4″.
@SeeingDaisies: i bought that dress. That’s the Allure 8634. I’m having it altered to be a little more modest.. but i love the V neck dresses. I think it really makes my large bust look smaller. I tried on a few sweetheart tops and they really looked like a “tray of boob” lol.
For Gianna up the top, how do you think it would go for a small busted bride? Say with cups sewn in and a bit of a satin tapered from the bust to the tip of the point in the shoulder? This was suggested to me today to hide the cup that would need to be sewn in.
Also, has any other bride tried it? I found that the shoulder fabric dug in a bit (I guess because the dress is so heavy). Just wondering if anyone else had this problem?
