Following on from the post on What to Wear when you’re Petite and Busty, here are some ideas on the formal end of the spectrum. From wedding dress to formal occasion styles. ¬†Should you be thinking about a cocktail type dress, just look for the same kinds of styles but that end just above the knee or at the knee instead of full length.

Wedding Dress Options - Petite and Busty

 

You will notice that the overriding theme of each of these dresses is:

  • Simpleness – not fancy or froufrou
  • Clean lines – not lots of layers or volume
  • Shoulders covered – so you can wear a bra
  • Lower necklines – which minimize your bust

Whether or not you want a defined waist (seam or belt detail) will depend on your body shape (I, X, 8 or A waist detail, H, V, O no waist detail)
