    Ok, I am a 32H. I have the same problems. I thought strapless was a no no but it ended up being the best fit. If you get a dress that is made well it will scoop and hold those puppies up. I even tried one on that had a corset without a bra! Which in our world is unheard of! My breast looked GOOD in this dress believe it or not! And I didn’t end up with butt boob ( you know when your breast look like as ass on your chest. Never the goal). I ended up purchasing a classic mermaid. I embraces my small waist and wide hips. I think an hourglass shape is sexy!

    If you aren’t comfortable you could wear a halter or straps. You also have the option of wearing a little jacket with a strapless dress.

    As far as th shape I voted mermaid. But you could wear A line or a ball gown. You have a great shape, pick what you want and rock it! As far as the breast issue, not to much you can do about that. If you look on line you can find good strapless bras. Good luck.

    @Tootsietails:  That’s great to hear! I was just about to post before I read the dates on this lol. We’re a similar starting size (30GG/H for me) and was going to suggest an a-line. I’m too scared for strapless though! I bet you’ll rock it!

    @Tootsietails:  Wow! Congrats on your weight loss. Is your body still shaped the same?

    Hi I know this post has kinda been and gone but Had to tell you I am ordering that bikini now just from that pic its awesome !

    I also had no faith in strapless and spent months discounting them,  of course eventually I woke up to the wonders of a corset (Maggie Sottero apparently specialised in corsets before wedding gowns – and they really do miracles I previously thought only structual enginering could achieve)

    What dress did you end up picking? I’m nosey :p

    @Tootsietails:  I lost 20 lbs, but little off my chest. I’m about a 32E. But like you, my middle is much trimmer!
