I know how popular strapless wedding gowns are, and here's my two cents;
Choose your strapless dress very very carefully! If you get one that is too small, or too low, or too tight you'll regret it. A proper fitting wedding dress is crucial when you have large breasts.
Big busted women need the support provided by wearing a good bra so, if you're going strapless, GET A GOOD STRAPLESS BRA!
Where can a big busted woman get a full figure strapless bra?

Look for a strapless dress that comes up high enough to cover your boobs.
Stay away from a low cut, strapless gown because it will not be a wedding dress that flatters a big bust and you will regret the three feet of cleavage you'll see in your wedding pictures. Just trust me on this one.
Most all the experts agree that an A-line silhouette (also known as the
Princess cut) highlights an hourglass figure the best. This means that
the sides of the dress will hug your curves, flaring out just at or
below the waist.
A drop waist is another style that will help to elongate your waist and define the area between our bustline and hips.
Empire waist does not flatter a big bust. Wearing this style with large breasts can make you look pregnant! Ekkk! We Definitely don't want that! Unless maybe that's what you're going for.... Don't waste you time with this style and stay focused on looking for a wedding dress that flatters a big bust.
Some women with big busts like the corset style dresses. This style does offer support and can streamline your silhouette.
This is an "A-line" cut
This is a "Drop Waist" cut
Avoid an Empire Cut
Corset Style Can Be Supportive!
Moderate fullness in the skirt is a good thing for busty brides because it will balance out top-heaviness.
The fullness offered by an A-line or princess cut is very flattering to women of all body shapes.
Another trick to looking thinner and more balanced is to pick a wedding dress that is on the longer side.
If you like dresses with decorations and embellishments, the skirt and train are the places to have them. It will become the focal point and help minimize the bust size.
