For brides that have great cleavage and are not afraid to show it off, there are a number of options that will help create a spectacular silhouette.

Gowns with a deep V-neckline work well, or a dress with a sweetheart neckline with a princess line skirt will help balance the figure and create curves in all the right places.

Full support

If you’re keen on having a strapless dress then you might find one with bones to support you without a bra.  Berketex have several lovely designs in their range that look very flattering, also Bonny Bridal and Alfred Angelo.

Suck it in

Another great support is a corset. Not only do they look fantastic, you won’t need a bra if you get one of those. Try browsing the back of bridal magazines or ask at your local dress shop to see if you can get one custom made.

Top tip

It’s important to get a really good fit. Put aside some extra cash to ensure your wedding dress looks just right with high quality alterations.

You’ll find lots of inspiration on Confetti’s fashion pages!
