Bustier Dresses. Love 'em or Leave 'em?
I really like bustier dresses and actually bought 2 really cute ones this weekend.

What do you all think? Are bustier dresses a trend you , or would you rather leave 'em?

Bustier Dress is something I am dying to try on, but it is hard to look good in it.

I love them!
I think they can definitely look very flattering, but you do have to be careful. I tried on a strapless black leather one the other day, but unfortunately my lack of a bust seemed to be exaggerated..

i think they are very flattering to any shape, the thing as in lingerie is to find the right one. i personally love them and think of them as timeless pieces.

depends on what type of restaurant and how much skin the dress exposed. I think if the dress ends below your knees (and cover your back) most of the restaurant don't have a problem with it.
or go for a wrap to cover the shoulder; that should look super elegant too.

of course if a girls bust is dispoportionally big compare to rest of her body, she probably won't look for a bustier dress because it has a risk of looking vulgar

I feel like they're a really great shape for a lot of different body types: it flatters flat chested gals, and it shows off the girls of larger chested females. Plus, it cinches in that waist.

I love this one on Lindsay from FW 2005 Gucci. Quite sexy. I also like it looks modern and interesting for a bustier shape.

I feel the way. It also depends on your body type and how the dress is made. Sometimes, you have to have a small bust because certain dresses are not meant for top heavy women.

I have the same issue. I love bustier dresses, but unfortunately can't wear them myself due to the lack of bust.

I do however love seeing them on other people when they fit them properly.

Because my mom said so.

When i was about 12 years old I cut the grass and it was really hot.

So I took off my shirt.

I finished the "chore" about lunch time.

After I sat down to table my mom said...

GO PUT YOUR T-SHRIT ON!!!!!!!!!! NO BARE SHOUDERS AT THE DINNER TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

even though it was lunch..
