Congratulations...Mazeltov and if you were going for "sexy" with your wedding dress, why not consider an off the shoulder gown..they're romantic, sexy and provide more safe coverage for "The Girls" I think actually off the shoulder is even more sexy than strapless, because for that style to work, "The Girls" would almost have to be fake NOT to slip out!

I don't think the strapless would be the best choice. Sorry.

I agree. I think a large bust needs more support than a strapless outfit can comfortably provide.

Do you ever watch Say yes to the Dress? They have had plus size women on there who wear strapless. I am not plus size and am not busty so don't have personal experience with this issue. In general when I watch that show I am not a fan of too much hanging out on thin or plus size women. I like toned down but that is my personality but you may have different taste and this is your day. Something that did come to mind is how sometimes those strapless dresses you have to keep pulling the top up and I don't care for that though it may not bother you.

Im still old fashioned enough to think a bride should be beautiful and demure not with boobs flashing more than the bulbs of the cameras.. no not for me and I wouldnt be comfy sorting and adjusting my dress all day especially for the first waltz..

Having been through dress shopping with a few friends, finding a non-strapless dress can be a challenge. It's counter-intuitive, but I've read that some of the dress manufactures find it easier to make strapless plus-sized dresses because sleeves are too fussy or more expensive to make--bigger girls have bigger arms which means more complex patterns and more fabric.

your probably right Fleetiebelle. that could be the reason.. no matter, surely it would be much more flattering for the bride even if a bit more work goes into it.. I was looking at some beautiful dresses with sleeves , some see thru lace or voile, some the material of the dress and to be honest they were stunning...

I actually like the second dress better because I prefer simple over frou-frou. But you need to get the dress that you like the most and that makes you feel beautiful.

Congratulations and best wishes!

Sleeves are not universally flattering at all.

I'd probably end up with a bodice something like so!
Felicia Gown - Sleeveless - Sleeve - Simply Bridal

I don't really like to go cleavage crazy.
