    I really like bustier dresses and actually bought 2 really cute ones this weekend. :D

    What do you all think? Are bustier dresses a trend you :heart:, 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 :doh:

    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. :innocent:

    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..

    moms make great influences, mine told me once that its inappropriate to wear white pants (jeans or any other) until May
    so i used to stick to this rule


    i got one bustier dress and small breasts, looks good when i stand up straight, worse when i bend ...

    I love the look of them, but I don't think they'd look super on me, as my shoulders are kinda wide, I might look.. manly?
    And knowing me, they'd fall down and expose me haha ;)
