Can't get to a shop to try it on. I am a 34GG, usually have to go up a size for non-stretch fabrics. Keep wonderinfg whether the yoke would give me double-boobage...but it's so nice.

Ooh that is nice. Good for top heavy bods - the scoop neck is flattering and the bold black blocking would even your top out.

I likey.

Cant see it on my phone sad

WarmFuzzyFun Thu 20-Dec-12 16:57:56

Nay. The neckline is too high IMO.

It is lovely, but I would look awful in that neck line.
Keep looking would be my advice.

Charliefox Thu 20-Dec-12 19:46:27

No from me too. You'd just be all boobage on the top half.

ggirl Thu 20-Dec-12 19:52:44

nah too fussy up top
I'm not keen on it

I think the dress would maybe make you look bigger? You would be better suited to a straighter style dress with maybe a cross over at the top.

waitingforgodot Thu 20-Dec-12 19:59:16

Only saying this as I have similar size boobs and do not suit that shape at all

SayMama Thu 20-Dec-12 20:06:00

Well I'm a 36GG and probably wouldn't wear it for fear of creating a 'matronly boosm' grin

But then I'm a size 16 which is part of the problem. If you're slimmer than me you might be able to pull it off.

Would look awful with my large norks. Neckline too high.

I like colours and skirt half of it though.

Whoknowswhocares Thu 20-Dec-12 20:17:31

It's beautiful but sorry no, not for the large of nork

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 20-Dec-12 20:44:38

I think no tbh (and I don't like it at all anyway, sorry).

cece Thu 20-Dec-12 23:02:30

I wouldn't be able to wear that neckline with my boobs (similar size).

toofattorun Thu 20-Dec-12 23:28:22

What a lovely dress but agree that it may be too much on top.

fridgepants Fri 21-Dec-12 10:35:29

I don;t like straight dresses - I'm an hourglass and they seem to work against my curves. I do like wiggle dresses but they never go in and out in the right places on me, because I;m also tall.

snowtunesgirl Fri 21-Dec-12 10:37:09

Well I'm currently a 34F at the moment and I wouldn't wear that. I agree that the neckline is too high. Lovely colour though!

AloeSailor Fri 21-Dec-12 12:34:09

Neckline is too high.

BunFagFreddie Fri 21-Dec-12 12:41:53

I'm also large of norks and it would deffo give me the matronly look. Even the model in the pic has a touch of the matronly uniboob look going on.

Lovely dress, but it really draws attention to the top half.

Try pepperberry (bravissimo) for clothes, much better to accommodate those of us with more generous assets (30G, me).

The shape looks OK for an hourglass but not with a substantial chest (the neck is to high and wide).

bootsycollins Fri 21-Dec-12 12:54:30

No no no step AWAY from the dress. Try either a v neck dress or halter neck, avoid high necklines you'll just look bulky up top

AngelsWithSilverWings Fri 21-Dec-12 13:06:55

Lovely dress but no. I'm also 34GG and that dress word make me look huge all over.

I made the mistake of buying a few tops in that kind of style because they tend to fit over large boobs when other things don't. Them I saw the photos of me and I looked about 3 dress sizes bigger all over.

MulledPinot Fri 21-Dec-12 14:06:32

I agree high necks are normally a nay, but this one has the boat neck shape - they are normally OK on me (G cup). The embroidery would be flattering too.

Maybe it's one of those you have to try on? No problem drawing attention to your boobs, fwiw.

I'm a 36GG and would wear that.
