What are the best styles of tops and shirts to flat­ter some­one who has a large bust?

That’s a great ques­tion as many ladies, re­gard­less of their height, size or shape, have a larger bust to con­sider when shop­ping for clothes. Some women em­brace their breast size and oth­ers not so much. Re­gard­less of whether you pre­fer to min­imise or en­hance your bust, con­sider the gen­eral rules be­low: Wrap dresses and tops are a fab­u­lous so­lu­tion as they sep­a­rate the breasts, giv­ing the il­lu­sion of a smaller bust. Choos­ing a top that is one or pos­si­bly two sizes up could be a so­lu­tion, de­pend­ing on the style, as pulling across the bust line is min­imised and draws the at­ten­tion away. A pat­terned top or dress can work won­ders too. Wear darker hues on ar­eas you wish to down­play and lighter ones on the parts you would like to em­pha­sise. As far as jack­ets go, look for the clean­est and long­est line, as that cre­ates the il­lu­sion of a longer torso, and avoid but­ton­ing up if you can. A V-shaped neck­line de­creases the ap­pear­ance of a larger bust by, again, sug­gest­ing a longer line down your front.
