There are lots of celebrities working the trend for side boobage, which got me thinking about which neckline flatters your boobs the most. Side boob is really only a look for those who have perfect figures - or have you rocked this look ever? And I don’t mean by accident!
Now, I won’t talk bras here – that’s a whole other topic! Do go and get fitted so that you’re wearing a bra with good support – don’t let them get floppy or sloppy. And don’t go the other way either and crush the poor things – you know the look, pushed up and squashed and looking more like a bum than boobs.
When an outfit doesn’t work, it’s often because the neckline is unflattering to you. And since no woman ever refers to her boobs as medium sized - just too big or too small, I’m breaking things down into necklines that make the most of big and small boobs.
Best necklines are low, open necklines like a sweetheart, scoop, square or V-neck which tend to look good on almost every body type and size.
V-neck dresses are super flattering on big-busted girls. The V acts as an arrow to the bust. Just make sure you don’t reveal too much. If the neckline is very low then wear a layer underneath, so that it is not too revealing.
Wraps are very flattering. Avoid high necklines, and round necks as they can make full busts look like one big lump.
A strapless top can make very top-heavy women spill out and should probably be avoided, a halter will flatter your figure if it has built in support. Just be careful your boobs don’t spill out the sides.
Look for fitted tops with narrow V-necks, but not with too deep as V, as this can accentuate bony chests and draw attention to the fact that you have a small bust. Wear a camisole or collared shirt underneath and it will look much more flattering.
Wraps are great to flatter a small bust. Polonecks are elegant and flattering on flat-chested women as they draw attention away from the chest. Halter styles can accentuate your small bust and even create curves, especially if it has a built-in bra.
Sweetheart necklines are also good at creating the illusion of curves. Square and asymmetrical necklines broaden the shoulders and create the illusion of a larger bust. A scoop neckline is also a good option.
Strapless tops, as with bigger busted girls, can be unflattering as they will drag attention to a small bust, but with the right cut they can look amazing.
So have you figured out neckline suits you best yet?
