How to dress if you are busty

>> Make sure you choose the right size when it comes to your bra. One that is too tight will show through your clothes, while one that is too loose will not provide the needed support.

>> Wear low necklines that show off your collar bone and stay away from high ones, such as turtlenecks.

>> Corset-style, sweetheart and empire necklines are perfect for you, as they highlight your bust in the most flattering way, offering structure as well as support.

>> Try wrap tops and dresses which will not only flatter your silhouette, giving you the much-desired hourglass shape, but your flatter your chest as well.

>> Blazers with narrow lapels optically reduce the dimension of your bust.

>> V-necks are perfect for a generous bust.

>> If you choose to wear tight-fitting tops, make sure that they are the right size and don’t cling to your chest in an unsightly way.

>> To create the illusion of a smaller bust, choose dark colours and stay away from prints when it comes to the top part of your body.

>> Avoid ruffles, frills and any other embellishments in the chest area, as they will make your bust appear even larger.

>> Choose tops with wide straps instead of narrow ones.

>> Try a tight top under a jacket that is slightly shorter and more loose, for n extremely pleasing visual effect. It will highlight your bust without excessively showing it off.

>> A-line skirts perfectly balance a generous bust, making your entire figure look well-proportioned. For a more glamorous look, pencil skirts are also a very good choice.

>> When it comes to accessories, avoid choker necklaces, as they tend to make your bust look even bigger.

>> Square necklines are also a good fit.

>> Choose wide-leg pants in favour of super-skinny models, to optically elongate your entire silhouette and to give the impression of a bust that is proportional with the rest of your body.

>> When it comes to swimsuits, choose the top half just like you would choose a bra. Wide straps or halter necks, doubled by a wide band right under the bust give great support.

>> Accentuate your waistline to create an hourglass shape and you’ll see that it also does wonders when it comes to framing your bust.
