Spaghetti straps are not meant for the big boobed.

It's not so much the dress as the boobs without a bra. I was plus sized at one point and even though I was only a c cup, unless it was a halter top, I had to have some sort of bra, but I have had a child. Someone with smaller boobs that didn't need a bra, well they could wear that.

That's certainly not a good dress for people who are bigger on top. As someone with big boobs, broad shoulders, and big arms- heck no. Wide straps work much better for me.

If you're young, sure. If you're over 35, no way.

I'm not plus-sized so disregard my comments if you want....but I would not wear that hot mess even in a size 2/4.

It looks like a cheap nightgown. And that asymmetrical hemline...ugh.

As the other posters said, halter tops and wide straps=much much more flattering on the large-busted.

These are about 100% better:

I personally wouldn't. I think it would look hideous on anyone whether petite or plus size. It looks to me like someone ripped some old fashioned curtains.

I find that if you are plus size it is better to accentuate the positives ( breasts, waist etc.. ) and try to draw the eye away from "problem areas". This just does all the negative and none of the positive.

Larger women ( and the vast majority of women) IMO tend to look better in more classic and classy clothes. Something well cut and well tailored giving a classic silhouette. Simple clothes with luxurious and sumptuous accessories are the way to go for me anyway.
