Busting it out: Dressing guide for Busty Women

My friend actually told me this one story of how she had to snap her fingers infront of a guys face and tell him “my face is up here” . And im sure most heavy breasted women have the same problem. The solution to this is not covering them up with scarves or baggy clothes or jackets, the only way to avoid this unwanted attention is to dress for your body type! Yes, that’s right, you can dress to make your body and chest look proportionate and avoid these awkward conversations.

The first step to that would be finding the right bra. The right bra can work wonders for your figure. You could opt for

  • A FULL CUP BRA – it provides maximum support and helps shape the bust line
  • MINIMISER BRA’S – they give an illusion of smaller breasts , thus making your more comfortable in any outfit your choose to wear

With the right bra you don’t need to worry about how you’ll look while your run/jog or even when you want to wear the one deep plunging dress! And this problem will certainly be over and done with ..

Now lets talk about the neck line. I know it sucks that you can’t wear everything you find on the rack, but then its better to look good than look obnoxious! Some basic tips while picking your top or dress are to stick with wide V necks and U necks, but avoid high necks and halter necks. This is because high necks will just bring out your breast area while the more open necks will show some skin between your bust and neck, giving the illusion of a smaller bust!

One misconception about heavy bust girls is that they shouldn’t wear loose jeans because it will make them look fat. Well… that’s utter nonsense! Wearing loose jeans or boyfriend jeans as opposed to tight fitted jeggings will make your body look proportional and give an impressed of a smaller bust as well.

Now coming down to some first world problems…

The dresses a heavy busted woman should opt for are

  • Wrap dresses : They work wonders for bigger busts and they kind of help separate the breasts and give an illusion of a thinner waist. These dresses work wonders, for a casual day out with the girls or even a romantic dinner!
  • Empire waist dresses : These dresses have the bust line much higher than the original bust line giving an illusion of a smaller bust
  • Shift dresses : These draw attention away from the breast area and give an overall proportionate look. The trick is to find the right shift dress and you’re good to go!

Another outfit you can opt for is a top and skirt, but ones the blend together to make it look like a dress! That way you won’t be stuck to wearing just dresses, you’ll be more comfortable and trust me when I say it will look good!

The trick to jackets and blazers is simple, just make sure they’re tailored and bit well. Too loose and they’ll make you look like a square. Too fitted and they’ll enhance your breasts beyond belief. Another trick to reducing your breast size is layering, and what better way to do that than with jackets!

Some essentials for your jacket

  • Single breasted, not double
  • Avoid pockets
  • Avoid lapels/collars
  • Look for a length that hits mid hip or lower hip
  • Wear it open, especially over your bust
  • Avoid heavy material

Coming to another third world problem, choosing the right necklace!

Avoid the 3 H’s

  • Necklaces should not HIT at the bustline
  • Avoid ones which will HOOK your breasts
  • A big no no to ones which HANG off your bust

Other than these basic fashion tips, opt for over sized bags! They draw attention away from the bust area and are quite handy themselves. Also play around with scarves .. don’t be afraid to wear them because they will help cover up the attention areas and they’re the best go to accessory when in doubt !

So don’t be all boring in black with loose clothes and closed jackets! Show off your curves because that’s what you’re meant to do. But the most important tip…
