I would suggest getting a strapless bra for her, they come in quite large sizes

How big is she? I have double d’s and worn a one shoulder without any issues. I got sized and buy a really great strapless bra even though it’s a little bit expensive.

However if she is getting a breast reduction I’m guessing her boobs must be really big. If that is case, strapless bra may not give the support she needs. I think the easy solution would be to just order her a dress with two straps.

If you like a uniform look, then order two straps for everyone else as well. This seem like something she doesn’t have control over, so I think it’s just easier to do that.

I have never found a one shoulder dress that doesn’t make my large bust like like I have one giant uniboob. That said, I can wear a strapless and everything stays up, but it’s just not very flattering. I would definitely look for another option for your bridesmaid because if her chest is large enough to need a reduction, I can’t imagine that dress will flatter her at all.

I have a large chest and one shoulder is flattering on me.  More than strapless for sure.

She may do better with a longline bra that a regular strapless bra if her girls need some extra support. Likely, the dress won’t be that flattering on her though.

All my girls had one shoulder dresses, 2 of the 3 were busty, (DD or E cups) as theirs were a sweetheart neckline it got rid of the uniboob look. Also I am an F cup and with a decent bra (ordered offline is way cheaper – I do it through measurements) I feel supported enough in one shoulder dresses. Try on the dress and see, another strap CAN be added easy enough if that would make her more comfortable.

EDIT to add a pic from my file (I can’t upload few ones from my iPad) (this Bridesmaid or Best Man is approx a DD)

I did wear a long line bra.
