There is a lot more options than I thought. My sister is a bridesmaid and she is bigger bust, so this helps in the decision process. Not sure how I feel about the Samantha for big bust.

Thanks for providing a guide for bigger-busted bridesmaids. 2 of my 3 girls are a bit on the chestier side, so this will be great advice for them! I am letting each girl choose their own style, but requesting they all wear the same color. This guide will be super helpful to them!
