if she’s comfortable….. Then let it go!   If she pops out that’s her problem/embarrassment but at this point there’s nothing you can really do or say because you gave them the reigns.

i let my girls pick their dresses because they are all different shapes and sizes and wanted them to be comfortable.   They ended up picking a dress, although nice, I would have never picked, but I just had to deal with it

If i were in her position, I would want to be told if something looked bad on me.  Sounds like she chose a dress that doesn’t work for her body type.  Can the seamstress add coverage to the top?

Your her friend! Let her know that her cups runneth over!

If I were you, I’d try to be a little more tactful about it than that..lol.

Can you say something about it, and then suggest that she wear a bra with a coordinating lace bandeau to cover her up a little?

One of my bridesmaids is a Dirty Delete and another other is a J (my other two are C’s I believe) so I think we will be looking for some supportive dresses as well! I think my reaction would depend on HOW MUCH she was spilling over. My J bridesmaid just can’t help a lot of clevage. Its just happens. 🙂

As a bride with a 34Dirty Delete bust, I asked for opinions from EVERYONE who has seen me in my dress if they think I’ll be okay without a bra. And honestly, I’m not worried about it. However, I asked for honesty from each of them. I would rather someone tell me what they think to save me the embarassment of flashing all of the guests at the wedding. 

Just let her know your concerns. She’s in your bridal party, chances are you are close enough to talk about avoiding potential wardrobe malfunctions by doing a few modifications or wearing some extra support. I wouldn’t see that as offending anyone. Heck, I think you’ll be doing her a favor!

@occhimusicali:  Tell her EXACTLY what you just told us! Honestly, if it’s as bad as you say it is, she’ll be thanking you for not having a Janet Jackson moment at the reception.

Don’t feel obligated to pay for extra alterations that are required to keep her girls in. It’s her body, you’re just saving her from having a wardrobe malfunction. I say it is still her responsibility, though some people may disagree on that. 

Have the seamstress add some cups with wire on them for support. That should help a lot 🙂 I’m lucky in that my dress has an amazing corset on it. That’s the only reason I don’t have to get anything done, but I do know that wire cups help us more “blessed” ladies.

As a hefty DD+ girl myself, I’m surprised she picked this one out of all the dresses there. I’d never go with a backless dress myself but to each their own!  can she get one of those low back bra’s?

Can you suggest she add straps to the dress?

Maybe she just love the shoes. Or she happen to have no shoes to wear. So i suggest that you can ask her that every thing is ok?
