Let her change. No harm in that if the formal pics are already taken.

1. Can we see the dress? I am a busty girl and am curious how bad it is.

2. Did she bring up this horrible discomfort when you were picking the dresses the first place?

I’m torn on this one. I would be annoyed that she wanted to change so late in the day, I mean if she is wearing it for the first 12 hours of the day what’s the big deal to wear it for a couple more… If it is really that awful on her why did you even pick it in the first place? She said others have told her they don’t like it which means she has been trying it on or showing pics to others to bitch about it and that is super annoying in and of itself. I don’t think it is reasonable to ask someone to be uncomfortable all day, but at the same time if she didn’t bring it up before it was purchased then… too bad….

MissLibra :  in my case that I described above, I got measured and because of my bust, had to order a size 16 even though I was an 8 in street clothes at the time.  The store only had sample sizes to try on, but the shop assured me the size I ordered would fit and be enough coverage on top to wear a bra.  Did not turn out to be the case.  She probably showed her family for an honest opinion if it was too much cleavage.

lisa8 :  It’s funny because I had the opposite opinion on the other thread, but in this case, your bridesmaid doesn’t feel comfortable. I would never want anyone so close to me to feel that way.  If she thinks they’re going to pop out, she’s not going to dance and not going to enjoy herself.  This is totally a situation where you should just let it go.  She’s doing you the favor of wearing something that makes her feel uncomfortable for hours, only changing once the photographer is gone – I think it’s a good compromise.

OP, I’m shocked that you’d think this was a problem and I think you are being very insensitive.

Yes, you’re being unreasonable.  Speaking as a rather busty girl myself, I’m amazed she’s being gracious enough to wear the more revealing dress until 9 pm.  

Why on earth would you make a dear friend wear a dress that risks wardrobe malfunction?
