Every woman has them and whether you have big ones or small, whether you wear a size 6 or 18, there is every chance you need a hand getting your breasts in an optimal position. Like boobs, not all clothing is created equal so inevitably different garments will suit some figures more than others. But there are products out there to help bridge the gap; making smaller busts appear larger and large, more compact.
Issue #1 – Small bust = Hollows
A common issue when styling corporate clients is that breasts don’t sit where the darts are placed on the garment or simply don’t fill out the space designed to house breasts. It would be easy to rule out that piece of clothing and move on. But what if there was a solution? After all the jacket is the perfect colour and the shoulder line is super flattering and it’s a great price . The solution could be as simple as swapping your soft lace bra for a moulded cup with slight padding or push up.
My Favourites are… (click for link)
Intimo – Trousseau Push Up Bra
Pleasure State – My fit OMB Super Boost Bra
This is probably one my best finds recently. To further enhance the bust try Uniqlo’s Bra Camisole. This light weight camisole has built in bra cups and shapes without clasps. Not only is it comfortable on it’s own; it can be worn on top if a push up bra, adding an extra cup size.
Issue #2 – Large Bust = Overspill
A large bust can have the opposite problem and the width of the breast can spread outside the chest panel, edging it’s way across the bicep. If the correct cup size has been established it’s likely this unflattering problem is caused by an unsupportive bra without enough internal structure confining the breast. Remedy it with a bra that offers side support. This is an extra layer within the bra that scoops around the outer side of the breast bringing it up and in.
I am a busty 14DD and having breast feed two children need some help with lift and shaping. It was soon after having my 1st daughter that I discovered Panache Lingere and I’ve loved it ever since. The wonderful people at Big Girls Don’t Cry Anymore fitted me with what I fondly refer to as my boob job bra. It makes me feel perky and secure while still being a cute basic. Panache cater for sizes 30D- 38G also offering an amazing Sport Bra and Swimsuits with sized Cups.
My Favourites are…
Panache – Porcelain Viva aka Boob Job Bra
Panache – Dahila – side sling support for extra shaping
So next time you try a tailored jacket or shirt, don’t rule it out immediately. Think about what you are wearing underneath and the impact that can have on your clothing choices.
