Flattering Dresses for Larger Busts: Our 21 Top Picks

Us Weekly is an affiliate partner, so we may get compensation for certain links to products and/or services.

Let’s be honest: A lot of clothes are not made for large bust sizes. We see photos of models 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 at times.

Wrap, fit-and flare, and V-neck dresses are some of the most flattering styles for larger-busted women. While bodycon dresses can show off your figure well, dresses with a belt in the middle are great for accentuating your hourglass silhouette. We also like smocked styles since they’re so stretchy at the chest. You might want to avoid anything with an open back or super skinny straps since you won’t be able to wear a supportive bra with them, but a dress with a built-in bra is the way to go in that case!

Are you ready for some of our top picks in each dress type? Let’s do it!
