    1. A flourishing bouquet of tulle that won't ruffle your blooming bosoms.

    Promising Review: "I am a big girl with DD boobs. So, I ordered an XL to be safe. I am able to wear the dress with no bra. (I don't usually wear bras in summer dresses, anyway.) The slip is perfect too, as it stretches." β€”Ria Grana

    Get it on Amazon for $79.56 (available in two colors and insizes S-XL).

    3. A two-in-one dress that makes sure nothing flies up on ~short notice~.

    Promising Review: "The bottom half of the romper fits perfectly without riding up, and if you're still cautious, it comes with this amazing train to prevent anything from being seen. I've never felt more comfortable in a romper than I did in this one." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it on Amazon for $25.99 (available in two colors and in sizes XS-L).

    4. An airy sundress with dainty lace cutouts for a sliver, not a full moon.

    Promising Review: "I love this gorgeous dress. It has some weight to it but is nice and airy for summer time. This dress is not see-through, so there is no need to wear anything under it. The print is so pretty and flirty." β€”Oaklandfan

    Get it on Amazon for $39.99 (available in two colors and in sizes XS-L).

    5. Some custom ties for a look that's not too *knotty*.

    Promising Review: The darts on the bust fit me perfectly. The neckline is modest, but not high, and the waist is about two inches above my natural waist, which lets the jersey fabric hang perfectly. It is soft and substantial, but not heavy β€” a great weight for summer." β€”ChicagoNative

    Get it from ModCloth for $79.99 (available in sizes XXS-4X).

    8. A striking strapless maxi that won't play peek-a-boob.

    10. An alterable lace-up that isn't flexible about surprise *guest appearances*.

    Promising Review: "The fabric is more casual than I expected, which was good news for me, as I thought it might be too dressy. Fit is perfect as well, I'm very busty (36DD) and got a medium, and it fits me very well." β€”KristiGirl
