While small-chested women may be worrying about padding and push-up bras, those with larger cup sizes need to be strategic about their blouse choices to account for their bust. Opt for necklines that create space between your bust and your neck in order to break up your upper half and avoid the dreaded uni-chest. Steer clear of turtlenecks and higher crew-necks, and instead opt for scoop-neck, sweetheart and boat-neck blouse cuts. Angular necklines, such as the square-shape top, not only offer open space but also balance the roundness of your curves for a slenderizing effect. Wrap styles that cross the body, typically forming a V-shape, are especially flattering. For women with large breasts, keeping things simple up top is generally better.

I do—32Cs. It's just I have such clavicle issues, I don't like them on show. This was something Alexa Chung said in a interview with British Vogue that not only stuck with me throughout my twenties, but confirmed in some small way that how I was dressing at the time hiding my own 34C boobs was, in fact, considered chic. For years I have tried to compress my chest usually with no-wire triangle bras that flatten rather than give lift , or hide my breasts in oversized oxford shirts, loose-fitting cashmere sweaters, and baggy white T-shirts tucked into mini skirts or jeans. They look great hanging off the flat-chested models that wear them; it just took me since puberty to realize they don't look as great on me.
Because girl can cook. She went above and beyond, and I hope you large-of-boob gals will find her tips helpful. Oh, and she provided the visuals herself. I have a pretty hefty chest and I put a lot of thought into dressing it.
