Asymmetrical Dresses for Big Boobs

Asymmetrical dresses for big boobs can work well. The term actually covers a lot of unusual styles with the one shoulder dress being the most popular. They can make a gown look odd or very elegant it really is a case of taking each one on an individual basis.

Asymmetrical dress

Like one sleeve dresses, they certainly are an option for you if you have the confidence to wear them.

Or simply because ensuring you are almost guaranteed to look different to other women, at any given event, is a priority. 

Asymmetrical dresses are principally divided by two main types of style:

  1. Neckline
  2. Hemline

I will discuss these two subjects below, but first....

What Are Asymmetrical Dresses?

First, it is best to understand the definition of symmetry. Symmetry is the quality of being two or more parts, of exactly the same form, facing each other, or around an axis.

Asymmetrical dresses therefore have shapes that do not have exactly the same form and therefore do not balance.

What does that mean? Well a scientist would tell you that it means discordance, disunity, incoherence, disproportion, even violence. That is technically true but a bit of an over-reaction. The actual reality is that, as humans we like balance, harmony and symmetry.

The Advantages of Asymmetrical Dresses for Big Boobs

A Teal Short Tiered Prom Dress with One Single Shoulder and Asymmetric Hemline. 

I had to show this little number as it has both main asymmetrical features at the hemline and neckline. 

If one of the main ideas behind flattering dresses for big busts is to draw the eye away from your chest then these unusual hems are just the ticket.

If we see something that is out of kilter, oddly shaped or even a picture not hanging straight on a wall, it catches our eye. That is therefore the advantage and disadvantage of asymmetrical dresses for big boobs summed up. However importantly, it draws the eyes away from your chest.

These frocks stand out because they are different. Some people cannot ever take to them because they prefer the harmony of a balanced garment but if you are comfortable looking different; like the odd or quirky look; or simply want to stand out, these just might be a look for you.

The Neckline

This is where many asymmetrical dresses differ. As this concept can vary so much and it is best explained by pictures, I will provide a series of different examples to illustrate the concept.

Obviously the most regular means to effect an offset neckline is a one shoulder style but I wanted to show some other simple variations.

The London Times Shutter Tuck Sheath Dress with Gathered Neck goes up to US size 16 but is designated petite only.

The One Shoulder Dress

The One Sleeve Dress

Whilst I discuss the one shoulder dress in more detail on another page, I had to mention it here too. A striking red one shoulder, sleeveless, knee length, figure hugging dress. With ruching to the side. Wear it with your hair up or down. 

Equally whilst the little black dress is technically a one sleeve dress, the 'sleeve' is so under-stated, it is nice way to show how subtle asymmetrical dresses for big boobs can be. Again you can read more about the appeal of the one sleeve dress by clicking the link.

The Hemline

Often these hemlines are referred to as 'high low' hems.

On all the frocks in this section, the hemline is the feature. The Tbags spaghetti strap printed gown has a very long and deep offset hemline which certainly is eye catching. If you ever wanted ideas as to how to shift attention away from your top half, this may well be the answer.

The MaxandCleo strapless dress in peacock blue has a elasticated band at the top to fit a variety of chest sizes. 

Both frocks have pretty colours but the hem line provides a little further interest. I am not necessarily recommending any of these garments, merely using them to illustrate a point.

Another variation is a triangular point at the middle of the hem. Technically that makes it symmetrical but because it is so different to the normal horizontal line, it squeezes into the listing.

This Paisley patterned frock sweeps out from beneath the bust and will hide a multitude of lumps and bumps.

The round necked Arden B. maxi number looks initially like it has a simple slit but there is clever gathering to make a wider opening to reveal a lot more leg.

In fact, because there are so many variations and simply because there are also so many pretyy variations I have created a page about the high low dress, as it is often called.

Patterns

Normally we associate the asymmetrical feature with either the neckline or hemline but even more uncommon is the effect of a pattern. Actually many patterns are technically asymmetric but these two really prove the point.

This Donna Morgan shift dress has a crew neck and flattering three quarter length sleeves. The asymmetry comes from the pattern itself, which also incorporates and element of color block styling.

The Sheinside frock is asymmetrically striped, in a round neck, long sleeved style.



Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan
