The same Bust Lounge writer who loved eShakti (here) also clued me in to Ureshii. Ureshii gives a really helpful comment beneath this Facebook picture from one of their customers, sent five months after she had a baby.
“Busty girls, take note: this is a perfect example of the cleavage factor of the Coming Up Roses bodice. We’ve given [the customer] the maximum amount of coverage possible with this pattern. If you’re looking for a more modest option, please consider the new version of our Tab Dress.”
- tells me I would show major cleavage in this dress; and
- gives me another option that doesn’t require a camisole.
Here’s the Tab Dress:
I originally overlooked this dress, but now I feel like it was made just for me. Isn’t it refreshing to find a store that responds to cues from their large-busted customers? Ureshii could have been included in this article that Marketa sent me in September. See another example of their responsiveness after the jump, plus a surprising department store source for information about what looks good on us.
Ureshii’s description of this dress again addresses a full-busted woman’s concerns.
This draped bodice is a good choice if you don’t want to draw too much attention to the bustline – yet it still shows an intriguing hint of cleavage. The width of the snug-fitting waist panel can be adjusted according to your body type and desired silhouette. [My note: In other words, you’re not stuck with an empire waist!]
Now if they’ll just address the environmental concerns of using bamboo, we’ll be set!
Finally, guess what I noticed on Macys.com? You can now filter your search by body type, including Full Bust and Petite Hourglass! I used “Full Bust” to filter my search for dresses and came up with this Suzi Chin dress.
Next, I browsed the 79 reviewers for customers who described themselves as Full Bust or Petite Hourglass and learned that this dress is made for B cup women. Macy’s may have been wrong in their dress recommendation, but they have redeemed themselves by providing such a useful tool. They may give myshape.com a run for their money.
nordstrom lets you filter by body type as well, and they have a nice video on body shapes, measuring, and fitting: http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/60128774#/1
Thanks, Melissa! I see they have Hourglass and Full Bust. I could get lost for hours in the dress reviews.
