Do I need to be skinny to wear this for a wedding?

Is it boring? It's cheap but will it flatter a big bust? www.zara.com/uk/en/woman/dresses/flared-short-sleeved-dress-c269185p2032569.html

No, I think it would look much nicer on someone with curves!

Onedropoflove Sun 24-Aug-14 14:31:40

Do you think it's boring though? It's exactly my colour

I think the high neckline could possibly not work with a larger chest

WillowWoods Sun 24-Aug-14 14:32:51

It's too big for the model,and it would look nice with curves,but you'd need a flat stomach.

It's gorgeous. Wish I'd seen it for a wedding a few weeks ago! I think you may end up with a bit of a uniboob but it depends how big big is?!

Zara stuff is small, as a general rule.

The dress could work really well, I like it a lot, but it will probably make your frontage look lower than it is - you need a damned good bra on when you try it.

I don't think it would work on a big bust, sorry.

Oldbag, sorry to go off on a tangent but if you're a size 10, it's highly unlikely you're a 34dd.

Onedropoflove Sun 24-Aug-14 14:38:27

I'm just looking at their site there's nothing with a lower front. Really hard to find these days

Fair enough old bag but there's still no way you're a 34dd - probably more like a 30f

If that's your colour then Boden has this www.boden.co.uk/en-GB/Womens-Dresses/Smart-Day-Dresses/WH722/Womens-Marilyn-Dress.html which is GREAT for a larger bust. It's jersey, but quite heavy jersey so could be ok for a wedding with the right accessories.

Also, Pepperberry is a very mixed bag but the sizing is good for big busts (obviously).. www.bravissimo.com/pepperberry/products/sale/dresses/occasion-and-party-dresses/tie-waist-jacquard-dress/coral/pd281crl/?show=all This looks nice.

There are similar styles of dress out there though, I think searching for fit and flare or skater dress would turn some up ? I bought a similarly styled one for a wedding from long tall sally and it is a bit boring and overpriced but I love the colour and with a statement necklace and a skinny belt I think it looks good here

I find if you've got big boobs, dresses with fitted waists are hard to fit.

I often find if it fits the chest it's too big on the waist, if it fits the waist it's too small on the chest. Although obviously it depends on your shape.

Twinklestein Sun 24-Aug-14 15:28:27

Wrap dresses are good for big boobage.

I don't think it would suit a large bust. Speaking from experience here, the neckline is too high, you might end up looking matronly, trying not to.

What's the rest of you like? Most of the ones linked to here would be totally gruesome on me, especially that pink patterned Boden one (sorry but I really dislike that).

Do you deffo want pink?

This is quite a high neck but the shape generally is likely to be flattering and you could break the neck up with a big necklace. Somebody posted this on another thread, and I really like the look of it.

This looks as if it could be v flattering, but it isn't pink.

Big boobs = lower cut top bits

This would make you look huge up top.

From someone who is big up top

KristinaM Sun 24-Aug-14 15:52:22

No it's not boring

Yes it's a pretty colour

No it won't suit big boobs

I'm also a size 10 and only 30" under bust ( I wear a 30ff) so I can't see how you could be 34 under bust and still fit into a 10 .

Twinklestein Sun 24-Aug-14 16:06:11

Because 34DD in conventional bra measurements is around 30" under the bust.
