In Tina’s post tomorrow, she’ll share some interesting prints and lines that are flattering to busty women in a maxi dress, so I thought I’d share my own recent find on this subject. Also, look for my review of the Bolero Beachwear maxi dress on Wednesday–it just arrived this afternoon and I don’t think I’ll be taking it off for the rest of the summer!

You know why the Style & Co. sleeveless striped maxi dress in front caught my eye, don’t you?

Here’s a hint.

Yes, it has bra-friendly straps and a nice scoop neck, but the grouping of the stripes makes this an especially big bust friendly maxi.

So you can see why the photo below also caught my eye.

A better bra would help, too, but it’s the effect of the bright pink stripe above her breasts that caught my attention.

Busty women can wear any stripes they want any way they want! But if your goal is to look lifted, avoid allowing the stripes to group your boobs with your waistline.
