Personal Shopper: A maid of honor dress for Karla's sister

Karla D. wrote: "After reading Janetor's bio, I'm positive she can help me with my query! I'm looking for a matron-of-honor dress for my sister for my wedding this November. She's about a size 12. We are running into a problem because she is a 34DDD! I know she wants something that won't give her killer cleavage or cut her boobs in half. The color is some shade of red/cranberry. I'd like a long dress, preferably chiffon. Ideally, under $200. I'm open to any neckline. Please help! I want her to feel beautiful too."

Janetor here, Karla, thanks for the request! *grin* As a fellow member of the busty crowd, I know how hard it can be to not, erm, overflow out of most evening gowns. Those suckers are designed for A and B cups, not us D+ gals! Not all of the 7 dresses below are shown in red/cranberry, but they are all available in your colors. I would also advise ordering a size or two up to accommodate her bustline, and then having a tailor take the rest of the dress in. Congrats on your wedding, and thank you for wanting your sister to look beautiful!

Wow, you nailed it! They're all gorgeous dresses, but I especially love #3. It's EXACTLY what I've been looking for--and I never would have thought to find it at Nordstrom. I'm passing this along to my sister right now! THANKS!

Nordstrom never fails to surprise me! :)

Glad you liked everything, Karla! Have a wonderful, amazing, fabulous wedding day!
