You have a fuller bust. Well, excuse us for being a bit envious but isn’t that what some women spend a fortune trying to acquire either with uplift bras which give you a bit more “phwoar” or via expensive breast augmentation surgery (AKA a “boob job”).
We realise that a fuller bust is not all good news – sometimes having a generous bust can cause back-ache. And we know it can make buying fashion a somewhat tricky enterprise since most high fashion (both designer and mass market) is targeted at those women not blessed with a Katie Price-style frontage.
As we said in a recent blog about women who have an hourglass body shape, thank You, Kym Kardashian for freeing curvy women (of all ages) from the tyranny of feeling the need to have the body of an adolescent boy.
Hints and Tips:
1. If you have a fuller bust, always wear the best-fitting, most supportive bra possible and ensure straps are the correct length to keep your bust where it belongs – on your chest, not on your waist.
2. For a woman with a fuller bust, the fit of clothes is exceedingly important. A garment should never be either too tight nor too loose – very loose clothing will make you look big and wide while too-tight clothing with a fuller bust is possibly not a good look over 50.
3. If you have a full bust and slim hips, separates are sometimes easier because a dress that fits your top comfortably may be too big over your hips and a dress that fits well on the bottom half, could be too small across the bust.
4. Wherever possible, try to avoid little sleeves which finish in line with the fullest part of your bust as the sleeves create a horizontal line with your bust, making you look wider across the top.
5. But whether you choose separates or a frock, ensure your assets are properly showcased which means seeking out tops and dresses with a pretty neckline that is neither too high nor too low. With a fuller bust, a little draping or ruching over the bustline is very flattering. You can find ideas on necklines here, on the Style Tips for Fuller Bust page.
6. Fabric is absolutely key to looking fabulous. Where possible, avoid very stiff fabrics as they stand away from the body. Soft fabric, which drapes well and moulds to the body, will be the most flattering. A top with a sweetheart neckline is a no-brainer for the woman with a fuller bust.
7. As we said, dresses can be harder to find if you are slim with a fuller bust, though not impossible. Again, a dress in a soft fabric that gently flows overs the body without being too clingy or tight, will be particularly good. Fabric with stretch and “give” is also good for dresses for a woman with a fuller bust.
