As much as everyone envies your generous chest, us top-heavy ladies know that dressing for our figures is not the easiest task! All too often tops look more night-club than work-event, things that fit around the waist don’t pull over the chest, and sometimes it feels like they look bigger than they are!
Fear not ladies, you are not doomed to wearing those awful over-size reject blouses for the rest of your life. It is easier than we think to dress our curvy figures, you just need to follow a few simple tricks.
First remember – colour is everything! Bright colours and white draw attention to your chest, while dark shades and pastels will slim it down. If you would like to draw less attention to your top then go for darker colours and pair it with bright bottoms.
Try loose soft materials that flow as opposed to tight materials that cling. The kind of pleated material used on peasant blouses, soft cottons, thin jerseys, and linen are the way to go. Think of materials that skim over the skin and don’t make you feel suffocated.
Necklines and waistlines
Necklines can make or break the illusion you want to create. Round necklines hug the chest, while square sits over them. A deep, plunging neck paired with a slip under the top or dress is less attention grabbing than one that hovers over the cleavage. Off shoulder tops and dresses are great and very on trend right now. Avoid empire waistlines or dresses that tie under your boobs. Focus on this that skim over that area and hug the hips instead.
Finally remember that the correct bra for the outfit can make all the difference. Make sure you are wearing the right size and right amount of coverage for your outfit. Try clear straps if you are uncomfortable with strapless, and don’t be afraid to get a push-up to avoid sag. A badly fitted bra will draw more attention to you and make you uncomfortable.
Remember – many people would kill for more boobs, so if you’ve got it, flaunt it! Feel confident and beautiful in whatever you pick, and if you want to show off that celevage – go for it! The most important thing is to love your body for what it is and feel good about yourselves.
