Calling all DDs, FFFs and anybody else who identifies as “well-endowed”: While the smaller-chested among us can often just throw on a frock and call it a day, we bustier ladies don’t have it quite as easy. Between uni-boobs and strapless bras, there’s a long list of occupational hazards that come with the chesty territory. That said, there are some styles that work phenomenally well on those with an ample bosom, both for those who want to minimize their girls and those who prefer to show them off. Here you’ll find the best dresses for big boobs, no matter your personal style. Now all you need is the right bra and you might find getting dressed in the morning to suddenly be a much breezier affair...

Contrary to popular belief, large-chested women absolutely can—and should—rock a wrap style dress. Wrap dresses help to pull everything inward to create the illusion of a more streamlined silhouette. That means they have the power to make your waist look itty bitty and, when worn correctly, glide over your bust and hips without creating any unflattering bulging or bumps. The key here is to size according to your bust, not your waist. These dresses are typically more flexible in terms of fit since you wrap and tie them yourself (unlike a dress you zip up, which can only stretch so much before it rips). Sizing according to your widest part—in this case your chest–ensures little to no gaping or pulling in that area.
Best Classic Wrap Dress
You can’t talk about wrap dresses without bringing up the woman who perfected the silhouette and made it into the must-have item it is today, Diane von Furstenberg. Although she and other designers have continued to play around with the silhouette for years, it’s proven near impossible to improve on her OG mid-length, jersey design, especially in a geometric pattern. This particular version further helps create the illusion of a nipped-in waist and doesn’t outline your form in the same way as stripes (vertical or horizontal) to actually down play your chest rather than emphasize it.
Best Plus-Size Wrap Dress
This gorgeous orange frock can be easily dressed up for cocktail parties and wedding receptions (just add some statement earrings, a bold clutch and strappy heels) or dressed down for casual brunch or a day at the office (simply layer on some white or brown ankle booties and a denim jacket). It also comes in a deep bluish-gray and a springy brown-and-green floral print.
Best Wrap Dress Under $100
This Amazon bestseller comes in 22 gorgeous boho prints in a wide range of colors, all for under $35. But the best part about the Zesica Ruffle Wrap is that it is a true wrap, meaning the belted waist is entirely adjustable, which is tough to find for under 100 bucks. There is also plenty of fabric to ensure your gals are as covered as you want them to be. As one reviewer says, “I have never been more excited to write a review—I am 5 foot 3 and my breast size is a triple D sometimes an E. Being short and curvy it’s really hard to find something that fits in all the right areas but this dress fit like a glove and made me look absolutely beautiful.” (P.S. The brand recommends those with larger chests go one size up to ensure a better fit.)
Belted High Neck
We love the comfort factor associated with high-neck tent dresses, but they can quickly turn your gorgeous silhouette into something that resembles a pumpkin with four toothpicks for arms and legs. Crew and turtlenecks have the same tendency to turn us into amorphous blobs, offering no defining peeks at our clavicle. But there is an easy fix to turn both these styles into something both comfortable and flattering: Add a waist belt. It doesn't even need to be cinched in tight, but this easy addition helps bring some much-needed shape and definition to your torso.
Best Belted High-Neck Dress Under $100
This simple white frock checks all our boxes—adjustable matching belt, flattering midi length, roomy bust area, the list goes on and on. But seriously, we adore this Nordstrom dress for its easy silhouette that can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion. And the white cotton serves as the ultimate base layer for just about any belt style, whether you prefer classic brown leather, hot-pink vinyl or a boho stitched number. Our only caveat? Reviews suggest the material is a tad sheer, so be sure to wear nude undergarments or invest in a matching slip.
Best Plus-Size Belted High-Neck Dress
The belt feature is actually built right into this best-selling Eloquii frock, but don’t fret, it’s still fully adjustable and can be tied in multiple ways to best flatter your figure. We also love the subtle draping effect the belt has on the bust to help de-emphasize your chest further. And if you prefer the look of a contrasting or leather belt, you can simply wrap the belt around your waist and tuck or pin the ends before covering it with your preferred belt of choice. It also comes in five bright, cheerful hues, but our fingers are crossed Eloquii releases some neutrals, like black or white, as well.
Best Belted High-Neck Mini Dress
This easy mini comes in a ton of fun prints and solid-hues, and has becoming something of a cult hit among fashion influencers and editors. Each one comes with a matching rope belt, but they look equally cute with a contrasting ribbon or leather style if you want to switch things up. And no, it’s not as short as it may seem. One 5-foot-9 PureWow editor says it hits in just the right spot to feel breezy but not overly mini. “I actually own this beauty in three different colors, I love it so much. And if you’re wary about the length, try going up a size—the biggest difference between the sizes is length rather than the fit at the waist or shoulders, so you can adjust a little more easily to find your perfect fit.”
A deep V is sexy on just about everyone, but this is especially true for gals with big boobs. On the other hand, a more shallow plunge can be equally flattering, and still feels appropriate for work or dinner with the in-laws. If you plan to go the va-va-voom route, look for styles that go no lower than that mid-point of your breasts. Any deeper and you risk your girls looking saggy. For shorter Vs we prefer narrower styles, as opposed to those that start out near your shoulders, to really pull the eye inward for a narrower silhouette.
Best Plus-Size V-Neck Dress
We present to you, proof that a V-neck doesn’t have to look overtly sexy on someone with big boobs. The knotted waistband on this midi dress draws the eye in toward your middle, cinching your waist without actually, well, cinching anything. And while the V may be a little low for some folks, you can easily pin it to close at a higher point without ruining the silhouette of the dress. Add to that the fact that this dress is made from soft (fully-lined) linen and you’ve got yourself a new summertime go-to.
Most Splurge-Worthy V-Neck Dress
Doên makes a number of dresses that work well for women with big boobs, but this dress in particular caught our eye for two reasons. First, the V-neck hits just the right spot to feel sexy but not too sexy, showing just enough cleavage without giving away the whole farm. And second is the shirred panel at the waist. That shirring will stretch to best fit your frame so you don’t have to worry about any under-bust bands feeling too tight or hitting the wrong spot. Comfort and style, our favorite combination.
Best Everyday V-Neck Dress
Boden has a fabulous selection of more modest dresses that don’t also feel dowdy—case in point, this jersey maxi dress. The V-neck is just low enough to offer all the figure-flattering effects without actually showing any cleavage. And we love that the coordinating belt is entirely adjustable. And while you may end up feeling more comfortable going up one size, this dress is made from stretchy jersey that is oh-so soft to hug your curves without pulling or feeling constricting. (P.S. It also comes in petite lengths for those under 5-foot-3.
Fit & Flare
Similar to the belted crewneck styles, these cinched-at-the-waist dresses create an hourglass figure no matter your nature silhouette, but they’re particularly flattering on ladies with big boobs. And while they work with just about any neckline, we especially love shallow V-necks and square neck options most of all for showing off your collarbone without getting too risqué.
Most Splurge-Worthy Fit & Flare Dress
This gorgeous cotton mini (which also comes in black) is constructed to perfection with a pleated waist that helps create an hourglass figure while still allowing for plenty of wiggle room thanks in part to the stretch cotton fabric. The material plus the pleating should allow for plenty of room for the gals, and the flared skirt will glide beautifully over your hips. Basically this is our dream summer dress, for everything and anything from picnics in the park to rooftop drinks.
Best Party-Ready Fit & Flare Dress
Wedding receptions and baby showers and bridal showers, oh my! This year is shaping up to be one of our busiest yet, making it essential to stock up on cute yet affordable occasion dresses we can accessorize to fit anything. This Lulus mini comes in three colors (the navy above plus cream-and-gold combo and light blue), and is as comfortable as it is cute. Reviews suggest it may run a little big, but for those of us with ample bosom that just means there’s virtually no chance of tugging at the bust. Loathe the idea of wearing a strapless bra? Just pull the shoulders up a bit for a gorgeous boho neckline that’s also bra strap-friendly.
Best Fit & Flare Dress Under $100
We are getting major French girl vibes from this adorable floral dress (which also comes in three other prints), but our favorite thing about this Boden number is probably the skirt silhouette. It flares out enough to accentuate your waist but doesn’t look quite as juvenile as a skater dress. And it is made from the same comfy jersey material as the V-neck maxi above, meaning it will hug your curves without smashing them down. Don’t let the button front scare you either. The combination of a roomier fit plus that stretchy material should have everything laying the way it’s supposed to. (Although you can also size up if you prefer.)
A sheath dress is defined by its straight, fitted cut with a nipped in waist (not to be confused with a shift dress which falls straight from the shoulders with darts in the bust to add shape). They work very well for women with larger boobs but an otherwise fairly straight figure. Unlike a bodycon dress, which puts it all on display, a sheath isn’t skin tight so you don’t have to worry about showing off every lump or bump even as you show off your curves.
Best Black Sheath Dress
Every gal needs a chic little black dress she can pull on for anything and everything—important meetings, dinners with friends, memorial services, cocktail parties—and this M.M.LaFleur sheath is exactly the Jack of all trades we’ve been looking for. The length hits that Cinderella point between being short enough to make you feel foxy when out on a date but long enough that you won’t be left tugging at your hem at the office. And the material has some stretch (to best accommodate your bosom and/or hips or belly) while also offering some smoothing support. That said, reviews suggest sizing up to fit your widest part, in this case your breasts, to avoid any weird bunching or pulling. (It’s also worth noting the belt is not included.)
Best Sheath Dress Under $100
We have to admit, we’re mighty tempted to pick up this Maggy London sheath in every color (eight to be exact), and not just because of the phenomenal price point. Much like the dress above, the material is a combination of stretchy and supportive, hugging curves in all the right ways and smoothing when necessary. But we also adore the pleating at the neckline, which virtually eliminates the need for a necklace, which can often be tough to figure out when to comes to minimizing bigger boobs. All you need are some fabulous statement earrings and a pair of classic pumps and you’ll be all set for whatever the evening has in store.
Best Wedding Guest Sheath Dress
When Shoshanna Gruss started her namesake company it was because she struggled to find cute clothing that also allowed for larger cup size. Twenty-four years later and she has essentially perfected the art dressing both chicly and modestly without looking dowdy. And her best pieces are her eveningwear, like this lace midi which could be made to work for basically any season. Just add a colorful handbag and some vibrant statement earrings for summer, pastels for spring, complimentary navy accessories for fall or pearls and black pumps for winter. Trust us, this one is well worth the investment.
