Tips for Wedding Dresses for Big Busts


V-neck, sweetheart or scoop necklines are the best choices for busty ladies. Not only are they flattering but can also allow you to add some sex appeal, just keep it classy. When choosing the right neckline to give it a test bend over, since you will be bending over to hug or kiss many of your guests, you don’t want to give them a free show when doing so.


Wedding dresses that have a dropped waistline, like a mermaid style or trumpet skirt, are ideal for larger bust women.A-line silhouettes, princess line, and ball gowns are also great options. You want the shape of the dress to fit your body shape instead of something loose, which will again only add on the pounds.

Straps and Details

Halter tops and high necklines are two options you’ll want to steer clear of as these will only make you look bigger and unproportioned. You can go strapless, just be sure to pair it with a sweetheart neckline instead of one that just goes straight across. Wedding dresses for big busts that are strapless must be paired with the right wedding bra and should have built-in boning for additional support

You do not want to draw additional attention to your bust so you should avoid any bodices that have extra volume or sheen. You should avoid any ruching, details or beading on the bodice. Leave the details for the waistline or skirt of the dress to add balance and provide another focus point away from your chest.

The skirt has ruching or asymmetrical pleating that can add more balance and make your figure slimming. A beautiful side detail is also highly recommended to draw attention away from the bodice areas.


You want a fabric that can provide you with some structure at the bodice, so super flowy fabrics are not ideal. A plain satin fabric is one of the best options but if you want that airy effect, you can always add a tulle overlay on top of the more stiff fabric.
