32J with a Wedding on Sunday: WHAT SHE’LL WEAR!

Here is the progression of Reader M’s emails after yesterday’s blog post:
I love the pinup style but don’t want to accentuate my boobs.  Love a big, full skirt.

Do you think the Bettie Page on Bowery will have a size to fit my bust?  Love the dress.
. . .
On my way to Bowery with my little girl.  I’ll send you pictures to update our progress.
. . .
Officially LOVE Bettie Page!  Amazing staff and the selection is a big boobed girl’s best friend. I haven’t enjoyed shopping in a very long time.

A sampling of my thoughts as I look at these photos:

I want to look like Reader M.

Reader M’s daughter wants to look like Reader M. That’s such a good thing.

What a great company. Look at the smile and attitude that a well-fitting, gorgeous garment gives you.

Why didn’t I know that Bettie Page had a store in Manhattan, and when am I going to visit it?

These dresses are going up on my Yes to the Dress board. Thank you to everyone who contributed their suggestions and sympathy yesterday!


  1. That is amazing! She looks brilliant, I really wish I could visit one of their stores.

    I love how her little girl copies her pose, adorable.

  2. What an amazing day shopping. I think that was the first time my daughter has seen me happy while shopping. They haven’t been there for a year yet but will certainly be my go to from now own. Btw, the sling backs I’m wearing were placed in my dressing room along with the dresses.

    • So glad you mentioned the shoes, I was going to ask about them. They are lovely and complement the dresses very well. Which dress did you choose since you look great in both?

  3. Yessss! Oh I’m so pleased she liked it, and she looks FABULOUS! Just gorgeous.

    Wow–a great look on her!

  5. I just had to come out of lurking to say what a lovely couple of posts. Here’s to Sweets for the shop suggestion, and Here’s to Mia and her daughter for a fab shopping spree (and letting us come along)! The dresses look amazing (shoes too) — which one did you pick for the wedding?

  6. I chose the first dress with the netting. Thank you all for the compliments.
