    Offhand I’d say the first one because it has a strap that might provide some extra support

    maybe a halter top dress would work better? i’m a little busty and i would feel like i was falling out with a strapless….

    Gorgeous dresses but as a lady with big boobs I can say that they may end up looking slutty on your friend – this is what usually happens to us (I’m a UK 36GG/H. I would suggest a more “wrap” front, because one of the problems with a bigger bust is that the boob area of a dress of this type is never quite big enough, which means you either have to have the seam on the breast or too much boob out top.  Also we appreciate the support a bra with straps give us. 

    Depending on how heavy her boobs are as well a halter top could be slightly painful to wear all day, because the weight pulls at the strap and in the past I’ve had gashes and blisters on the back of my neck after wearing them.  If you do decide halter, don’t get one that you must tie, but a structured strap – the knot gets painful.  Also check with her what bra she can get, because this may effect the style of dress she can wear as well.

    Something like this would work better maybe http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/d500/#.T3GDKdkjUk8 or this http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/6513/#.T3GDxNkjUk8

    First one is okay, second one is a no-no for “curvy” figures.

    I was told to go for Sweetheart or V-nieck for larger chested bridesmaids. I guess haltar tops tend to push the “twins” up and in… Not very flattering. I’m kind of dreading going bridesmaid dress shopping because my sister is a barely A and his sister is a Dirty Delete… I have no idea how I’m going to find a dress that works for both.

    as someone who is busty and not pencil thin. . of the two I’d be more comfortable in 1.

    @GroovyHippieChick:  Same, though I’d rather avoid the almost-umpire waist that dress has.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  I’m with ya.  But I would look SO BAD in number 2… shudder.  Too short and strapless – not a good combination unless you’re Heidi Klum.  And I am not.

    I like one better. Ann Taylor is having a 40% off sale until tonight, though. They have some pretty dresses.

    I just had a look at ASOS.COM  just now and would really recommend you having a look.  I found one dress which is available in 3 different colours at 57.30 Dollars that could work for you maybe – or inspire at least.  This type of neckline would work as well.  My friend shops fro mhere all the time and loves the products.  Delivery is quick as well!

    Most really busty girls who are natural dislike or won’t wear a strapless bra. I think you should find a dress that has straps thick enough that she could wear a regular bra.
