Fashion Tips for the Well-Endowed
As a woman with massive breasts (ha!) I have learned a few tips and tricks to wearing flattering outfits. Here are just a few of my tips.
Do Not Buy Things Without a Waist
Shift dresses are not your friend, no matter how much you want them to be. They may be on your side if they are structured, but unstructured dresses or flowy tops will just make you look bigger. You can create a waist on some shirts or dresses by adding a belt. You need to experiment with this, though, as not all tops or dresses can be belted. Sometimes a little too much fabric can fold over the top.
Along that vein, baggy clothes and hippy styles are not going to work.
Turtlenecks and Boatnecks Are Not Your Friend
Unless you’re trying to accentuate your chest, boat necks (high round neck) and turtlenecks are not your friends. They make your boobs look much bigger and are bound to make them extremely noticeable.
Choose a Jacket with a Belt
Choose single breasted jackets and thinner knit sweaters/jumpers
These can have a slimming effect on the body. Better yet, choose a single breast with a defined waist.
Some fashion sources say that halter tops should be avoided at all costs, however I find that they work quite well for women with big breasts. They are rather supportive and as long as there is enough material to adequately cover your breasts, they can be a great summer staple and a good bikini top option.
Horizontal stripes are a no-no on a large bust. They can maximize the appearance of your chest. Vertical stripes are sometimes okay…experiment with them to see how well they work.
Make sure you have adequate support! This cannot be stressed enough. Because of this issue, strapless tops and camis are not recommended for everyday wear, however strapless dresses may sometimes allow it if the dress is structured and well made. Above all, you’ll need a good bra for these styles, so make sure your ladies have adequate support.
The Run Down
Avoid baggy clothes or clothes that aren’t fitted. Go for lower round necks or v-necks. Try coats with a waist and add a belt when possible.
