Happy Monday guys! Hope you’re  all well rested and your week’s off to a great start!

A while back a reader messaged me asking how to dress a big bust while still keeping it elegant and chic. I thought I’d do a post about it just in case anyone out there is in the same dilemma.

Growing up, a big bust was always deemed desirable but the truth is it can make getting dressed a bit of a brainer. Nothing we can’t work around though 🙂 I managed to ensemble a couple of looks which I found to be flattering for the busty hunnies but before we go through each look, let’s start with the basics. The bra. It all starts with the bra ladies, so trust me, you want to invest in the right ones for you. Be it for your low neck tops, your tees, or maybe for sportswear.. Whatever it is, a good bra should not only hold them ta tas in place, but also allow for free circulation of blood and accentuate your curves in a manner that makes your outfits sit better.

Now without further ado…

MONDAY READY

When you have a big bust, you might want to steer away from button down blouses as they tend to make the bust look even bigger. I found this blouse to be a chic substitute and matching it with a zebra print pencil skirt made for such a vibrant pairing! Perfect to jumpstart the week, don’t you think? 🙂

GIRLS DAY OUT (PUN INTENDED 😉 )

I find dresses with stretchy fabrics that are fitted through the chest to be quite flattering. This fit and flare dress also has a v-neckline which is always a plus as it makes the bust look higher 😉

 Here I played with an animal print neck scarf to create a cute bow which worked perfectly to draw away too much attention from the bust while giving the look a much welcome touch of elegance. Now ladies, if you didn’t know that accessories are your friend, hear it now. Scarves, chokers, V-neck pendants, bibs, etc= must haves! You might find yourself with an infinite number of dark tops/dresses because of their slimming and muting nature, so neckpieces in an infinite number of colours would be perfect  to brighten up the outfit.Though it’s advisable to avoid high neckline tops as they make the bust look bigger, you might just find yourself in one during the cold season. Throw over that statement neckpiece and watch that outfit transform 🙂 You might want to avoid long pieces though, as they may not lie flat on the chest which then makes it look a bit off.

SUNDAY FUN DAY

I found this dress to be incredibly charming! Must be the feminine floral detail in direct contrast with the mysterious black and I honestly can’t get enough of how flattering the flap detail on the chest is 🙂

How fierce is her smokey eye also? I keep telling this babe she’s a makeup artist in hiding! Lol!

SUNNY SATURDAYS

This look has a combination of three tricks. First, dark colours have a slimming effect, making this top quite flattering. Second, moderately low neckline tops are definitely the way to go as they make the bust look higher and more proportional. For as long as we’re talking flattering tops, you definitely want to invest in those that separate the breasts, e.g wrap tops/dresses. They tend to enhance the appearance of the breasts instantly giving you that enviable bust 🙂 Third, just like the jump/playsuits, the looseness of palazzo pants are perfect to balance out the larger top.

DATE NIGHT

Now, to pull off this look you will need some serious support, bra-wise. A corset/bustier bra will be perfect to offer you that comfort and to hold everything in perfect place.

FAUX ONE PIECE

Most times, having a big bust means that your upper body is bigger than your lower body. Getting a dress that fits perfectly in this case may prove difficult, forcing you to pay your tailor numerous visits. How about you create the impression of a one-piece using separates?

Over the weekend I visited Jorge’s Wardrobe (Hurlingham) and Collabor International (Westlands) and they are definitely worth checking out as well!

Wow! So this has definitely been my longest post yet! Lol! Sure hope it was helpful! Which look was your fave? Keep them questions coming by either dropping me a comment below or leaving me a direct message and I’ll be sure to get back to ya!
