If you are like me, then you probably understand what it’s like to be forced to grab a top the next size up, because that medium you thought would fit doesn’t even come close to squeezing over you lady lumps.  Yes, life is hard when your style icon is Kendall Jenner or Chiara Ferragni.  It’s a never-ending battle to find clothes that are stylish and flattering.  Most days you end up throwing something on, looking like a potato sack, and accepting that this might be your fate forever.  Well ladies, put aside your sweatshirts, because the only thing you’ll be swimming in today is compliments.  Here are five styling tips for busty women.

    1. Accentuate your waist

This is the best thing you can do to avoid looking like you have no shape.  Avoid billowy tops that will hang off your chest and hide your figure.  These kinds of garments end up making you look larger than you really are.  By highlighting your waist, you can show off your real curves. 

     2. Balance with boyfriend jeans

For years, busty girls have been told to avoid this trend.  However, wearing slouchy boyfriend jeans with a well-fitting top can actually provide a little bit of balance to the top and bottom halves of your body.  Try half-tucking a button down or v-neck top into the waistband.

    3. Rompers and jumpsuits can be flattering

Most top-heavy ladies steer clear of rompers and jumpsuits.  In reality, they can be very flattering.  Most of the time they are cinched in just the right places, and the single piece means less time getting ready in the morning (bonus 10 minutes of sleep!).

     4. Long lines elongate your torso

Sometimes, busty girls can look stumpy and short.  Wearing long lines on top, like a shirt with vertical stripes or an oversized blazer, will create the illusion of a longer torso. 

   5. Own it

Busty women are often told what to wear in order to hide their natural curves. But guess what? Big boobs are beautiful too! Don’t be discouraged by the styles you think you can’t pull off, and embrace your lady lumps. 

Show off what you’ve got!
