Magazines and Busty Girls

I am starting to think that no one that works at a fashion magazine is busty. (I think the article that triggered this rant was about holiday dresses in a recent Lucky issue. Not that they are the only ones. And not that I don't like Lucky because I do. Check them out. ) Why would they tell a busty girl to wear strapless anything otherwise?? I mean there are ALWAYS exceptions as there aren't RULES anymore. (IMO) But large breasted girls don't suggest strapless to other large breasted girls.

I am sorry but being busty and strapless is not normally a good combination.  
(Unless they are perfectly perky.. not often... or fake... making them perfectly perky.)

Big busts and strapless means a lot of tugging, pulling, readjusting, and sometimes duct tape. (I wouldn't suggest the duct tape.) Trust me I know. I have tried strapless bras.. semi EXPENSIVE ones even to no avail. It is hard to even FIND a strapless bra in my size without ordering online and I mean COME ON clothes are hard enough to order online and they have a LITTLE forgiveness sizewise. (I don't often succeed with blind online ordering either.)

Dresses that would be more appropriate? My suggestions...

A halter with a thick enough strap for a halter bra... very lifting.

A tank dress with thick enough straps for a supportive bra and with as much or as little coverage as you would like in the cleavage area.

A wrap dress... much more figure flattering overall with enough coverage for a good bra and the option to layer a cami under for more coverage if necessary.
