After what’s felt like months of rain (in Scotland anyway), it finally looks like Summer is here. Now that the sun has finally shown its face we’re all scrambling to pull together our Summer wardrobe just in time to enjoy the sunny season.
And for us busty ladies it’s even more of a scramble. We have to think about how to tame out-of-control cleavage, visible bras, gaping buttons, all while navigating confusing sizing.
I know how daunting finding those Summer staples can be so I’ve done the work for you. I’ve designed and developed several different Summer dresses, each with their own distinct style so you can find a dress that feels like a bit of you. And the best part is, every dress is designed to flatter and accommodate your curvy figure.
So, get ready to enjoy Summer with our 10 favourite Summer dresses for big busts. Just maybe pack a Fairlie Curved raincoat for your adventures too – you know how temperamental the UK weather can be…
This dress is so good it almost counts as two dresses! Seriously, people will think you have two separate dresses. This is a soft stretch jersey dress that can be worn two ways. You can wear it as a parachute dress for a relaxed, floaty look. Or, you can tie it to the side, front or back to cinch you in and create a stunning gathered effect.
I always feel amazing when I slip into this dress. It hugs my curvy figure in all the right places but is still super comfortable. It features a flattering v neck and a self fabric tie belt that can either be tied to the front or to the back. It has a good amount of stretch and features baby rib detailing. It’s a great piece for taking from day to night. And did we mention the straps are wide enough to hide your bra straps? You’re welcome.
Do you have a Summer event coming up? If you’re looking for something a bit fancy we’ve got you covered. This navy stretch velvet maxi dress is a sexy glam staple, perfect for proms, weddings or black tie events. The wide sash neckline can be worn off shoulder to amp up the glamour, and there’s a thinner strap that can also be worn off-shoulder or can be worn on-shoulder to hide your bra strap.
This polka dot dress has a shirred chest so it is perfect for us busty blessed ladies. The midi length makes it super versatile – sometimes I’ll pair it with boots, while other times I’ll throw on a pair of cute sandals to keep it casual. It’s a really lightweight, floaty material perfect for those hot, clammy days.
Another dress perfect for evening wear, especially for those who don’t like to show too much skin. Our one shoulder dress feels like a little bit of magic. It’s one shoulder design helps to guide the eye to above the chest, making it super flattering for us fuller-chested women. Meanwhile, the shaped waist helps to cinch you in and show off your beautiful curves. The sexy midi length is ideal for wearing with heels or flats.
Let’s start this one with a tip – bold prints work wonders to disguise your large chest, they work as a sort of camouflage. And that was the thinking behind this chic Summer dress. It’s made from a breathable, lightweight material that feels relaxed and is perfect for all-day wear. The wrapped silhouette has been designed to have just the right amount of coverage to accommodate your fuller chest. And, the long sleeves mean that this Summer dress will see you right through into Autumn and even Winter…
We loved the polka dot wrap dress so much that we had to make another version. This time we opted for a gorgeous green colour with bold black and white animal print. Again, this print will help to camouflage your chest and provide overall visual balance to your figure.
Now let’s throw in some vibrant colour… This is the perfect wrap dress for fuller bust girls. Made from a stretchy material, this colourful wrap dress features a fixed tie off to the side – pulling you in at the waist and showcasing that gorgeous hourglass figure. I wanted to create something fun and bold so I designed this multicoloured leopard print that feels like Summer in print-form. This dress never fails to make me smile.
A Summer dress roundup wouldn’t be complete without a shirt dress. The thing I love most about this dress is its versatility. It can be worn on its own as an oversized shirt dress, or can be left open and used as a layering piece. It’s super soft and feels relaxed and effortless – exactly how we want our Summer to be!
Last, but most definitely not least, we have our Tiered Midi Dress. The tiered silhouette feels feminine, while hidden pockets make it feel relaxed and effortless. It’s made from a super-soft heavy jersey material, so this dress will see you right through the end of Summer into Autumn. This dress is gorgeous on its own, or sometimes I like to throw on a leather biker jacket with some boots.
