I’m petite as well (5’1″ and a 34D). I also have a strapless with a very minimal sweetheart, like barely even qualifies.

It all depends on your comfort level I suppose…

I’m also a very well endowed petite bride (5′, 34FF/G) and I haven’t purchased a dress yet, but I will probably want a modified sweetheart to avoid the uniboob effect.

i had my dress modified to just a tiny hint of a sweetheart. i don’t think us well-endowed girl look particularly good in a deep sweetheart. when your dress comes in and you go for your first fitting, ask them to pin it into a sweetheart to see what it looks like before altering it. regardless, i wouldn’t do a severe sweetheart no matter what.

38 Dirty Delete here, I chose a gown with straps and a v neck line. The straps make me feel way more secure just because I remember those prom dresses from high school and having to pull them up all night lol. I read somewhere that v necks and sweethearts are good for busty brides because they prevent the uniboob lol. You might want to post a picture of your dress so other bees can get a better idea of what the straight neck line looks like 🙂

I chose a sweetheart neckline, too. It’s sort of a deep one, but instead of going down far, the heart part of it comes up high. I’m not good at explaining, lol. Here’s the link to my original post since we can’t currently post pictures: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-found-it-2

I definitely had uniboob problems with straight necklines, but a lot of the sweethearts dipped too low for my tastes. This seems like the Goldilocks of chest coverage, lol.

I have a V-neck and then a slight sweetheart on the other. I’m 5’0″ 32G so neckline was definitely a concern.

Mine has a very subtle sweetheart. I’m 5’0 and 32dd/ddd depedning on time of the month

it looks decent, but i think a deeper sweetheart would probably been better

 

 

edit: it is strapless, but they are big enough that the dress could not physically fall down!

Plus they added some boning to attach the dress to my bustier (and also, the sweetheart is created by pulling the boning through a loop on the bustier, so it is “removable.” It’s actually pretty cool–it means the dip in the middle stays real close to my skin. I think they will pull it down 1/4 inch more and it will be perfect. Such an easy fix, too!

38DDD sweetheart with straps to hold the girls up, I didn’t even look at strapless, I am too busty for that, I would have been hiking them up all night! Wouldn’t have been classy

Hmmmmm… I’ve been thinking about this a lot.

Bustier ladies who opted for strapless styles- do you plan on dancing? And if so, are you concerned about them falling out? My mom is under the impression that I will be flashing everyone if I don’t have straps, but I don’t know that that’s ever been a problem in my experience as long as the top fit well enough.

Opinions would be greatly appreciated 🙂

@MissFish: I’ve never had issues with a strapless dress falling down (I’m a 38G). I’ve heard people say it happens to them, but they don’t even move on me, really. I think the trick is to just make sure it’s tight around your waist to keep it lifted. You can also buy dress tape that will hold things together if you don’t feel like you have enough structure.

I’m a 32-36i (depending on weight fluctuation) and I will be rocking a sweetheart.

I’m a 32F, and I went for a sweetheart with v-neck illusion straps (the Pronovias Ronda). Prevented the uniboob and any concerns about futzing with it while dancing.
