Hello bride-to-be!

Pause that episode of Bridezilla. Today we’re going to show you some fashion tips that will help small busted women find their perfect wedding dress.


Small busted women have an amazing selection when it comes to wedding dresses. However, there are as many dresses that can hinder your shape as well as flatter them. What are some tips that you should consider as a small busted woman when it comes to your big day?

Before you walk into that wedding dress fitting, you should know that there are certain universal tips that will help smaller busted women achieve their perfect look on their wedding day. Here are 3 tips that you should keep in mind:

1. Go with Details Around the Bustline

When you are blessed with a small bust, you have lots of options when it comes to the bustline of your wedding dress. You can really amp up the details because the proportions here are really in your favor. Here are some ways that you can play around with your wedding dress:

Dos:  You have lots of options and can use:

  • ruched fabric
  • layers
  • folded silks
  • rose petals
  • vintage beadwork
  • buttons
  • feathers

Don’ts: Don’t overwhelm yourself with a dress that has too much volume since that will tend to drown you out.

2. You Have Great Selection in Necklines


Small busted women have much more freedom when it comes to your neckline. Because the mission is to create a balanced hourglass, you can pull off many different types of necklines to add more volume to the top, and this can be done through many different necklines.

Do’s: Because of your small bust, you are able to pull off these types of necklines:

  • High
  • Asymmetrical
  • Crew
  • Gathered
  • Bandeau
  • Jewel
  • Boat
  • Cowel

Don’ts: Don’t wear Deep or Low Scoopnecks. These necklines are designed for larger busted women to de-emphasize the size of their busts. When a smaller busted woman wears them, it makes her bust appear smaller.

3. Emphasize the Hourglass

The perfect wedding dress will accentuate your entire body as a balanced hourglass figure. There are many ways to create balance in your wedding dress, and here are some of the ways to create that shape:

  • Empire Waist
  • A Lines
  • A Fitted Bodice

It is easier for smaller busted women to achieve the hourglass on her wedding dress because wedding dresses are usually expected to be much more decorated and lavish than the average dress. It is always easier to go bigger when you have a smaller frame, and when you understand what flatters your body, the sky’s the limit when it comes to looking and feeling great on your big day.
