Yesh, I’m a 38D. I know how it is trying to find SOMETHING that fits my chest!

I’m a 32Dirty Delete.. it is annoying in all clothing, not just wedding! Shirts that have what I call “designated boob areas” do not work. I have to go on a shirt hunt to find a shirt to fit correctly.. and most of the time I just settle for something that isn’t too flattering simply because I have given up the hunt 🙁

HAHA! I have a 40″ around bust and i was so sad about this! I thought “hmm, buy a gorgoeus size 18 and have the waist nipped in to a size 8….awesome. how the hell will this look good on me!”

i bought a corset dress–a maggie sottero, in a size 10, so only one pant size up. And, it toally fit my DD’s and was really supportive. I have some recaps floating around and there are lots of me in my dress. Definitely try corset dresses! They are awesome for some larger chests. Not sure what’s out there for more casual dresses…..Maggie has a destinations line, I HAVE seen some knee-length wedding gowns.

oh by the way, i just had to personally rip all the boning and padding and bodice out of a bridesmaid dress because my boobs were a-flowing out the sides. NOT okay for a Catholic wedding. Pretty sure they would not appreciate the bridesmaid having some side boobage going on. The inside of the dress looks like hell but it fits now =]

my dress is a maggie corset dress too and it makes my boobs look great! I have NO idea what size it is though.. I didn’t ask. They put it on me, it fit.. I didn’t want to feel sad about a stupid number!

The ladies at my shop even insisted I remove my bra.. and the dress shaped and lifted them perfectly.. I wish I had a picture..

i’ve got um, pretty wee boobs – i mean, they are a 34C but they look smaller but its really ridiculous the way they think women are supposed to be built straight up and down!  TP, I can tell by your posts that you have exquisite taste and I can imagine you are frustrated!!!

i do have a booty though – and i can tell you guys that a while back, i actually went into a very expensive designer store to buy something for a major work event, ready to spend more on an outfit that I have ever spent in my whole life, and the woman looked at me and said – “We may have to special order in your size as we don’t have the bigger sizes in this store”.  I wear an 6 or 8 – which last time I checked was um, not a big size!
