Do they exist? Where does one find them? Every time I go into a shop and look for casual maxi dresses it seems like they're all either strapless or have thin spaghetti straps, which I'm sure looks cute, but I have freakishly large boobs so I don't really delight in wearing a strapless bra. Any suggestions on where to find a cute maxi dress that isn't too expensive and has thicker straps? I wear a US 10, if that makes a difference.

I just wear a little cardigan or something that coordinates as a little cover up. I have some light knits that I can wear in the summer that aren't too hot. This usually solves the problem for me.

There's a few cute ones on Zulily if you search "maxi".

I'd also suggest just replacing the spaghetti straps with larger straps yourself. Even if you don't normally sew and don't have a machine, it shouldn't be overy difficult.

I found some cute tiered ones at garnethill.com last summer. Also, Target has them right now.

Target's deal of the day is Maxi dresses without spaghetti straps!

http://dailydeals.target.com/#

In general, I would suggest checking out the women's section vs. the miss section, when I buy tanks for work I go to the old lady clothes because they actually have ones where my hoots won't hang out and my bra won't show.

JCPenney has some surprisingly cute dresses like this, too.
