5 Trends You Can Wear Even If You Have Big Boobs
Never fear the crop top (within reason)
Crop tops, jumpsuits, high necklines… If you’re a well-endowed lady, your instinct may be to stay away at all costs, but doesn’t your summer-loving heart just break every time you see an off-the-shoulder number? Fear no more, busty friends, because we’ve found solutions to all your summer-trend woes. Here, five styles you can (and should) wear even if you’re #blessed.
Never shy away from the onesie for fear of an unflattering fit. Just make sure the silhouette highlights your upper chest area. Namely, aim for a pointed V-neck, which creates the illusion of a longer, slimmer upper body. (And yes, you can definitely find styles where the point of the V hits above your cleavage.)
Sure, this one may require a strapless bra with titanium beams, but it’s certainly not off-limits. Make sure the blouse you’re choosing fits comfortably around your upper arms and is made of light fabric (so it drapes easily over your curves). A single ruffle is OK, but shy away from anything too frilly to avoid unnecessary volume.
You already know to avoid a turtleneck like the plague, but what about trendy high-neck summer tops? We say, go forth--just with a little styling help elsewhere. First, make sure your top fits you like a glove (extra fabric here is not doing you any favors). And second, remember to define your waist (say, with an A-line skirt or high-waisted pant) so that you’ve broken up any long lines.
Always risky, we know. But appropriately cut crop tops are actually a busty lady’s best friend. Why? Well, just like tucking in a high-neck top, a crop top breaks up the visuals of a curvy torso. Just keep it ladylike by opting for tops with sleeves and choosing a flowy piece on the bottom to even out proportions.
OK, we admit: If worn incorrectly, the nautical-inspired threading can seem a wee bit scandalous on any body type. But there’s a way to keep it classy. Simply look for loose-fitting pieces that have the illusion of laces (aka no gap in between). And enjoy being the trendiest one at the BBQ.
