A curvy figure with big breasts is a symbol of femininity. What some women long for is a challenge for others: Poorly fitting bras and unflatteringly cut tops bother many women. In order to emphasize the female silhouette favourably and make everyday styling easier for you, we have put together a style guide for the large bust in this article. We are also giving valuable tips on choosing the right bra for big busts.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Darts, narrow belts and wrap-around looks accentuate the waist
  • Voluminous skirts or trousers balance the silhouette
  • Dresses and tops with heart-shaped or V-necklines stretch the upper body
  • Flowing fabrics and casual cuts are perfect for feel-good looks

Cons:

  • High-necked tops or turtlenecks make the upper body seem shorter
  • Tops and dresses with flounces and ruffles can make the bust look bulkier
  • Shiny fabrics or glittering applications accentuate the breasts even more
  • Tops and dresses with spaghetti or neck holder straps offer little support

Fashion for the big bust – flattering cuts

3 C&A review

“Emphasize or conceal?” This is the everyday question for large-chested women. After all, your curvy figure should be stylishly highlighted to your advantage. For tasteful outfits it is by no means necessary to hide your cleavage under layers of wide clothing. With a few styling tips you can conjure up a perfect silhouette.

Tip 1: Balance proportions

If you want to “balance out” your proportions a little, you should emphasize the waist. Tops or dresses that hug your waist will distract the gaze a little from your bust. If the attention is more on your waist, your silhouette will appear more balanced. If you have stronger legs or wide hips, it is also advantageous if the focus is on the waist. Tops and dresses with a wrap-around look hug your curves and flatter the waist. Whether you wear a shirt dress, shift dress or wrap dress – the shape of the garment should hug your figure.

Tip 2: The right neckline

nstead of concealing, high-necked tops often make your breasts appear bigger because the upper body appears shortened. We therefore recommend, for example, the V-neck, which optically extends the line of the neck and thus ensures more balanced proportions. If you open the top button of a blouse, you will get the same effect. However, you should of course make sure that the neckline is not cut too deep – otherwise your neckline might seem more revealing than intended. A heart neckline with its curved lines is also ideal for emphasizing your cleavage ina tasteful way. The feminine, playful shape also conceals a little more than the V-neck.

Tip 3: Flowing fabrics

If you feel better in somewhat wider cut tops, you can always use loose, flowing fabrics. These can also have a stretching effect, especially with vertical lines in the pattern. Even casually cut trousers (Marlene trousers, jeans in Boyfriend Cut or culottes) and A-line skirts can establish an optical balance to your chest.

The right bra for bigger sizes

A well-fitting, shaping bra is essential for most women. In order to prevent tension or back problems, choosing the right size is particularly important for large-chested women. Don’t let the markings fool you: a bra in a D-cup doesn’t have to be bigger than a C-cup. The cup of a bra in size 85D is, for example, the same size as the cup of the size 80E. Only the size of the underbust measurement changed.

Find out your bra size – determine the circumference and cup size

In order to determine the correct bra size, you need two values: the underbust and bust measurement. To measure the circumference of the underbust, place the measuring tape around your chest where the band sits. Pull the tape taut, but not so tight that it cuts into your skin. When you measure the circumference of your bust, place the measuring tape loosely over the fullest part of your chest. You can then use a size chart to see what (under)band and cup size the values ​​correspond to.

Big size bra – the right fit

C&A 0

The circumference, the size of the cups and the width of the straps should fit your body perfectly. A correctly fitting bra supports your breasts, relieves your shoulders and flatters your cleavage.

Therefore, always pay attention to a good fit:

  • The underbust band runs horizontally along the back and sides.
  • The bridge (centre gore) is close to the body. A wider bridge provides greater form and support.
  • The cup should completely encircle your breast. It should neither be so small that your bust bulges out, nor so big that the cups are not filled.
  • The bra should be snug fitting below the chest to ensure adequate support.
  • The bra straps should not cut into your shoulders and back. The bra can only take the strain off your back if the straps lie comfortably on your shoulders. Wide, seamless straps provide the most comfort.

Special bras for relief and support often have other advantages, such as padded straps and wider underbust bands, back parts and bridge. If you also want to conceal your breast size, Minimizer bras are worth trying. Due to their special cut, they shape the breast and can optically reduce up to a cup size.

Conclusion

C&A 3

Regardless of whether you want to emphasize your cleavage or prefer to conceal your bust – with the right cuts and a well-fitting bra, you can also dress stylishly and tastefully as a large-chested women. Your cleavage is an asset that many women envy you for – so bring your female figure to the fore with confidence!
