Weddings are like buses, one day you’re patiently waiting for the first to arrive and the next you’re busier than the top deck of the 38 to Hackney Central. All friendship groups have that one year when it seems like you’re at a wedding every other weekend, too. If that’s approaching and you’re blessed with a bust that is on the bigger or smaller size, we’re here to help you find all the wedding guest dresses you need.
Meet SilkFred’s very own Abbey and our customer Francesca, who can relate. Abbey has a smaller bust and is around average height and Francesca has a 28GG bust and is 5’1. Here are the dresses that have got them covered for wedding guest season.
PSA: The Bigger The Bust, The Bolder The Style
Prints and bright colours used to be considered no-nos for those blessed with bigger boobs. Now you can ditch the black (if you want to) in favour of everyone’s favourite leopard print in this maxi wrap dress or a statement-making shade like this royal blue dress. The trick is to find a silhouette that flatters those curves and then the rest takes care of itself.
For big boob struggles, look to a wrap dress then cinches you in at the highest part of your waist and draws the eyes down with a V-neckline to even out your proportions. Then opt for all the prints and all the colours, like this green wrap maxi dress.
With a sexy shrug of an off-the-shoulder dress you can get the same result. This Bardot midi dress has the added help of an asymmetric frill detail to draw attention to your bottom half and can also hide a strapless bra for a bit of extra support.
Good Things Really Do Come In Small Packages
As we all know the grass isn’t always greener, those with smaller boobs need just as much help as their busty mates. Weddings don’t care if you’ve got an A cup or an E cup!
Whereas those with bigger boobs may struggle with certain styles appearing too sexy for a church wedding, smaller boobs can get away with even the raciest neckline. You won’t have to worry about the priest’s blushes with this pretty plunge wrap dress.
High necklines can also show off your slender shoulders and chest to get you all the compliments. This black midi dress proves wearing black and this season’s love of OTT sleeves is totally acceptable for a wedding.
Lightweight and silky fabrics are great for clinging to you in just the right places, too. Break out this sexy satin dress for summer weddings and expect all the flamenco dancer emoji captions.
When it comes to backless styles, smaller boobs are at a major advantage. Forget trying to find some kind of harness contraption or a stick-on bra, if you can go without you’re on to a winner in this cowl neck satin dress.
