If you're well-endowed there's a pretty good chance you stare enviously at so many backless sundresses hanging on store racks, wishing you could get away with going braless on your summer outings. But the problem isn't your bra size; it's not even a lack of options for a breast-full girl to be sexy without going over the top or showing porn star cleavage. The problem is often more a lack of strategy.
When you know the basic undergarments you need for slinky summer dressing and you know what styles of dress to look out for, you're on your way to reversing the tides. Instead of wishing they could just be half their size from May to September, you'll have the rest of us wishing we could grow a bigger set to fill out our summer frocks the way you do.
You have to start with the bra basics. A simple front closure T-back style like this will get you through many a halter top dress. And this version happens to go up to DDD.
Bra retailers have it figured out, give women molded cups and a little padding to make them look bigger so they buy more. But especially in summer, you need as little additional fabric as possible. Seamless unlined lace bras are the way to go. Love the support these have, the strong stretch that lasts and the thin straps that can be worn under thin-strapped dresses.
A Real Strapless Bra
This is the only strapless bra for a well endowed woman. Because it works. It doesn't slip, it lifts, it separates and it minimizes. Get ready to wear strapless and spaghetti strapped dresses you never thought you could before.
Layered dresses give sex appeal without looking slutty, so you need at least one go-to slip.
Demure and classic from the front.
Gorgeous and modern from the back. Cut-outs can be tricky, so be on the lookout for discrete back cut-outs like the ones on this perfect LWD. Notice how they show skin just below the bra line.
Totally cute from the front, a sweetheart neckline and thicker straps mean you can wear a bra if you choose, which we love.
And as for the back, the tie keeps it sweet while showing some back, which is a perfect way to give skin without being too revealing.
Something simple and lightweight that lets you control the coverage with a button-up style is not only chic and sexy, it's practical.
Thicker straps on a sexy red dress are definitely something to look out for. The color and fit say sexy, but the lack of too much cleavage or too much leg keeps it classy.
Try a T-shirt underneath a suspender skirt for a dress look that's simple but shows off the shape of your bod. And lets you control how much chest you show.
It's also a good way to tackle back cross straps.
This layered style needs only a slip underneath, the cut-outs are ultra sexy on your chest and your back, while key parts are being totally covered.
Ultra thin spaghetti straps are the job for your strapless bra. And if you have a good one, they're no more of an issue than a girl who can bounce around braless.
The geo-strap pattern at the back of this dress totally ups the style ante. Since it's at the top of your back, you can go strapless bra with this one too.
We love straps that are thin, but not so thin you can't wear a thin-strapped bra underneath. This is one of those dresses. It's a perfect candidate for the seamless unlined lace bra we mentioned earlier. And if a little black strap shows through, well black and navy is totally chic.
And of course, you know what to do with a strapless dress. This tunic might be the perfect coverup for the beach, but worn with nude underthings, it can be transformed into the perfect casual day look that's sexy without being too revealing.
If you're going for a classic fit and flare, read the label and search for one with a touch of spandex or Lycra like this dress. The girls will be much more comfortable, feeling less restricted.
