Let’s be honest — most clothing is not made for large bust sizes. We see photos of a model and think, “Wow, I love that piece!” but when we finally try it on ourselves, it looks completely different. That’s no fault of our own, but it does make building out a fabulous wardrobe you genuinely love pretty difficult. We’re here to help with that.

Some dress styles that tend to look especially flattering on larger-busted people include wrap, fit-and-flare and V-necks. Bodycon dresses are great for showing off your figure, while dresses that are belted in the middle are a fab choice for accentuating an hourglass silhouette. We also like smocked styles since they’re so stretchy at the chest. That said, you might want to avoid anything with an open back or super skinny straps, as you won’t be able to wear a supportive bra with them. A dress with a built-in bra, however, could come in clutch!

Ready to see some of our top picks from each dress type? Let’s do it!
