Our Stylist Answers: What Should a Busty Woman Wear?

We’re back with one of the most burning questions in fashion! Every week, we observe and listen to your fashion worries. This time around, we had a chat with our style expert, Amira, with an aim to debunk some rumors that have been circulating around busty women. 

Having a bigger chest area sometimes make some women want to hide in extra oversized clothes. But, Amira has to disagree with this, “Many big-breasted women try to hide their breasts by wearing loosely-fit clothes to cover their chests area. This is something that I personally have to disagree with. For big-breasted women, clothes that are too loose can give a fuller and heavier look. Loose clothes don’t actually hide heavy bosoms, but rather they make you look even heavier overall. I agree that too tight clothes can make you look a bit “fleshy” and they kinda draw attention. So,  the best thing is to wear clothes made of thin fabrics. Always consider the fabric or material you wear match with your body type. Remember that you shouldn’t go too loose or too tight. It’s best to have a little elasticity with flattering curves.”

Noted! So, no overly loose or overly big clothes? Then what should busty women wear, Amira?

Many women who have a smaller waist and large breasts feel like they always look unbalanced in the clothes they wear. But, love your curves and show them off. All you need to do is balancing your figure and put everything in proportion! Balance your figure by adding layers to your look (but not too many!). Try layering a leather or denim jacket over a tight top to increase the variation of your look.

What top do you recommend for busty women?

The common U-shaped collar and large round neck are recommended for big breasts. But there’s nothing wrong to try different collar styles such as large round neck and large V neck to reveal your neck and collarbone. At work, you can wear a buttoned-down shirt. 

Sometimes it’s annoying when people think we dress in a sexy way just because we have fuller chest area. How to dress casually without looking too sexy?

Wear jumpsuit! A lifesaver for you because it does make your chest area looks smaller. What a jumpsuit does is it will balance out your proportion, because the bottom part of a jumpsuit is flattering for your waist and thigh. 

Lastly, does our choice of bottom affect the overall look?

Of course! For big-chested women, go for a slightly wide-legged look if you like your trousers to skip over the hips. Try wearing a shirt with darts (Darts are two seams sewn into the back of a shirt that together remove a total of 1.5” of fabric) near the waist to add shape to your form. Avoid bottoms with skinny style. It’ll make your bust look even more prominent.
