Gold Satin Bridesmaid Dresses

Finding bridesmaid dresses for big busts is a lot easier than most think. There are multiple ways to highlight, cover, and support a big bust. It’s best to have open communication with your bridesmaids and find out what they are most comfortable in. 

Here are some great dress options and helpful tips for styling bridesmaids with bigger busts. Whether you are looking for more coverage, support, or to highlight the girls, there's a style for everyone!

Best Bridesmaid Dresses for Big Busts: Supportive, Flattering, & Accentuating

The key to finding the perfect bridesmaid dress is nailing down exactly what you want! Determine your goals: are you seeking to accentuate, support, cover, or find the most comfortable bridesmaid dress style for your bigger bust? 

Questions bridesmaids should ask themselves when choosing a dress:

  • Are you looking for modesty and coverage?
  • Do you want to accentuate your bust?
  • How much support do you need?
  • Are you wearing a bra or looking for a dress you can go braless in?
  • Will you have to keep adjusting your top/straps in certain types of dress?

When the girls are happy, we’re happy! As a bridesmaid, the last thing you want to be worried about is making sure every asset is perfectly in place and having no slip-ups. We're here to help! We are going to give you some great examples of bridesmaid dresses here at Kennedy Blue broken down by style so it is easy to select the best dress for your bridal squad.

For Bust Coverage: High Neck Bridesmaid Dresses

Necklines that have a little more coverage can be a great style option for your bridesmaids with bigger busts. Some bridesmaids feel most beautiful when they let the dress do the talking. This requires less effort and stress on their end knowing that the girls are in place and there is no chance of them stealing the show. These are some of our favorite picks of bridesmaid dresses that are perfect for a bridesmaid looking for a little more coverage.

Faye by Kennedy Blue is a gorgeous modest yet modern bridesmaid dress. We love the sleek design and the back tie to accentuate everybody’s waist perfectly. This is perfect for bridesmaids who want bust coverage without sacrificing style.

Dorothy Bridesmaid Dress

Kennedy Blue Dorothy in Cinnamon Rose

Dorothy is a romantic and modest bridesmaids dress with just a touch of sheerness. This dress features a high neckline, cap sleeves, and a delicate hand embroidered lace bodice. 

Elena Bridesmaid Dress

Kennedy Blue Elena in Bordeaux

Our Elena dress is a classic style that will look flattering on every bridesmaid including those with a larger bust. There is a crisscross neckline that includes built-in cups that add structure and will make every bridesmaid feel stunning.

For Bust Support: Structure & Comfort

Another considerable style option of bridesmaid dresses for big busts is a bodice that offers support. It is important for bridesmaids who have a larger bust to feel comfortable in their dress and that comes from the dress having good support of the girls. 

When your priority is support, it is important to look for dresses that have these features built in. That can include built in-cups, boning, or thick fabric to help keep the girls in place and add great structure and shape. These dresses are gorgeous options of bridesmaid dresses for big busts.

Jay Bridesmaid Dress

We love the contemporary look of Jay’s square neckline and flattering figure-hugging shape. This dress features full support and coverage for a big bust without being overly modest.


Kennedy Blue Uma in Burnt Orange

With a v-neck, leg slit, and a keyhole back, the Uma shows just the right amount of skin. This dress will accentuate your breasts without being too revealing. It also provides plenty of support and has built in bra cups.

Shannon Bridesmaid Dress

We love a one-shouldered look for a bridesmaid who wants to stand out! Shannon also features a gorgeous beaded embroidered lace bodice. Don’t worry, the single strap on this dress provides just as much support as two!

For Bust Accentuation: V Neck Bridesmaid Dresses

The last style option to consider when choosing bridesmaid dresses for bigger busts is showing the girls off! Not every bridesmaid wants to cover everything up and is looking for something to highlight their assets. If your bridesmaid wants to show off her bust line, do it! These are some of our favorite recommendations of dresses that can accentuate a big bust in the best way possible.


Kennedy Blue Ryan in Navy

The Ryan dress is one of our favorite options to accentuate a larger chest. This dress features a deeper V neck with a pleated bodice will have any bridesmaid’s bust looking stunning. The spaghetti straps and the high slit add a little sassiness to this dress.

Sophie Bridesmaid Dress

Kennedy Blue Sophie in Sage

Sophie is a cute yet comfortable chiffon dress! The adjustable straps make it perfect for supporting any size bust. The tie in the back adds an extra layer of customization to make sure it fits in the most comfortable and supportive way possible.

The Betsy dress is perfect for bridesmaids looking for a little something extra. The beaded bodice and sweet V neckline is a perfect option for bridesmaids looking to accentuate a bigger chest. The sheer straps add another dimension at the bust, bringing the focus to the lovely face above it.

Bra Friendly Bridesmaid Dresses: Thick Straps & Coverage

Another important style option to consider is whether you bridesmaids would like to wear a bra on the big day. This is important for some bridesmaids, especially if they have a bigger bust, because they might feel uncomfortable without one. Consider looking for dresses with thick straps or a high neckline that are always going to be bra-friendly. Here are some of our favorite options for bridesmaids who can’t quite go bra-free!

Kennedy Blue Brittany in Plum

Kennedy Blue Brittany in Plum

Brittany is one of our most popular styles of all sizes. The straps on this dress provide plenty of space for a bra to be worn underneath. The v-neck and low back are beautiful and don’t go too low to cover your bra cups and clasp!

Luca is a universally flattering, flowy, fluttery bridesmaid dress. We love the fact that this dress features a v-neck but is generally very modest. The whimsical cap sleeves on this dress will cover any type of bra straps!

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!

I love that there are so many styles that will flatter my girls with bigger chests! This is also why I’m thinking about just going with a set color and letting my girls pick the style that they feel most comfortable in!
