Finding the right fit in clothes, can be a daunting experience at the best of times, and shopping on-line can be a little more difficult. Here is a no-fuss easy to follow bust-flattering guide that you can use in Store and On-line.


  1. When shopping for swimsuits, look for halter-neck (flattering and supportive) bikinis or tankinis with built in support (which look better than a one-peice as they define the waist) and bikinis that are "fixed" rather than moveable (e.g triangle on a string), to bring your bust in and up.
  2. Remember fashion is all about balance, If you're showing cleavage, don't show too much leg. If you decide on a conservative neckline, flaunt your legs in a cute mini or sleek shorts.
  3. Avoid horizontal stripes or large patterns on the bust as they only make the bust look bigger. If you want to wear stripes opt for a bag, scarf or shoes. If you can't resist horizontal stripes, try thin lines, for the most subtle effect. Similarily, it's best to stick to dark or smaller prints.
  4. Empire-line dresses and tops can make you look pregnant as they don't give you waist definition. Same goes for pinafore style dresses.
  5. Opt for clothes that cinch in at the waist, as it's important to add definition to your silhouette when you have a big bust.
  6. Look for structured and tailored clothing. Anything too wafty or baggy will make you look heavier than you are, Skinny jeans, pencil skirts, belts - anything that balances out the silhouette is ideal.
  7. Voluminous skirts, such as the bubble (when teamed with a streamline top), can help to balance out a large bust.
