Maxi Dresses for Moms with Saggy Boobs

If your post-pregnancy or – even
worse – post-nursing boobs reduce you to tears….turn away from the
mirror.  We just need to do a little camouflage.   Most post-preggo/nursing
boobs can be supported with a good bra (even if it's strapless).  So
make sure you have a good strapless bra that fits.  The problem then becomes
the cleavage.  It's the cleavage that gives away the sag.  So avoid
maxi dresses with deep v-necks (I know, I know – that rules out most of
them) and try a couple of different options:

Halter Neck Maxi Dresses

A
halter neck maxi, when worn with a good strapless bra will easily hide
any sagging boob problems.  Below left is Manambe Dress, $168 from
anthropologie.com.  It's silk, so not great for running around (but
perfect for a wedding), it's pretty, and the shape is perfect.  Look
for one like this.  

Below right is a yellow tie-dyed Grecian Goddess Maxi Dress, $61, from Boutiquetoyou.com.  Notice how high the neck is – no saggy cleavage will peak out.

Strapless Maxi Dresses

If
your saggy boobs are also relatively small, strapless is a great
option.  Just make sure you wear the strapless top high enough to hide
the cleavage.  And again, get a decent strapless bra. 

Below left is the Cora Long Dress by Lauren Conrad, $229.  The ruffle will further help to distract from any sagginess.    Below right is the Strapless Burst Maxi Dress, $28, from forever21.  The bright pattern will also camouflage any lumps or bumps that are hanging lower than they should.
