Satin sometime can make certain areas look bigger. It would depend on the design of the dress a cow neck design would minimize breast size. A dress that has ruching in the breast area would help too.

I hope this helps…Smile

I’m 36Dirty Delete. I wear a lot of vneck wrap dresses (but ones that aren’t low enough that you see cleavage)I’m very proportionate, hourglass shape. Not sure about your mom. Can you take her shopping to try on dresses?

I love wrap dresses too but the only problem with them is keeping them close in the bust area and not showing to much cleveage. I have full breast and it a pain when I bend over sometimes. You can also try to find a dress that has a wrap knot because of the ruching the bust and hips will look curvy and it will stay closed. 

I dont have a picture to show but think of a knot and it is pull from both ends the ruching covers the tummy, hips, and breast.

Best bet for sure is to just go shopping with her.

V-Necks and Wrap Dresses are great on big busted women (of which I am one)… IF they aren’t super-self conscious about their “ample feature”

Flowy fabric is better than anything that is stretchy or too rigid.  Satin wouldn’t be my first choice… as it can accentuate the bad bits (not forgiving)… and it also creases like crazy.

For inspiration use GOOGLE and look for Red Carpet pics of Celebrity Big Breasted Actresses… with their “Stylists” for The Oscars and such, a good lot of them will look quite decent (vs sassy or trashy)

Hope this helps,

If you’re looking for dresses for a busty woman, please don’t be afraid to mail order from the UK or Europe – it’s where all the best stuff is made!

Dirty Delete Atelier has a fuschia knee-length dress that you could easily add bling to. Also, Pepperberry has this, this, this and this.

These are all made specifically to fit and flatter women who are DD+. If all else fails go for a wrap dress but make sure she has a lovely matching/complimentary camisole to wear underneath.

If you join Pepperberry’s Facebook page you can see lots of photos of their clothes on real customers – it might give you an idea of what will suit your mum’s shape the best.

As a large busted girl,  I like 50’s style dresses that show off my figure, but have plenty of coverage (I really like the free hips as well) and they’re not too short. A matching / contrasting cardi looks great with them as well!

I have huge boobs, but I am almost 6 feet tall… so what would look good on me… might not on her!  She will just have to try things on!
