Most everyone has a certain feature of their body that they’re not happy with, and for many (if not most) women that feature centers – with a big fat crosshairs – on the chest area. Boob size is just one of those things that is hard for ladies to love; either they’re too small, too large, too saggy, too lopsided … and the list goes on. If only women could be more like men, who love boobs of every size!
Throughout the course of history, women have tried countless methods to make their boobs bigger, including but not limited to paint, corsets, acupuncture, odd potions, pills, chest exercises, massage and breast enhancement surgery. The “boob job” is the most drastic of modern techniques to achieve a bigger breast size, but this strategy is definitely not for everyone. If you’re not one to risk your life in search of perkier breasts, there is a simple way to create the illusion that your breasts are bigger than they are: the right clothes!
Before we discuss how to dress to enhance your cleavage, let’s first discuss the bra. Finding the right bra is essential to helping you maximize your breasts, no matter how big or small they are. If you’re not sure about your bra size, get a professional bra fitting so you can be properly supported. Then determine if you want to use padded inserts (foam or silicone) to plump things up, or go with a quality push-up style (i.e. the Wonderbra). When you are properly fitted with a great breast-enhancing bra, you will be amazed at the results.
Here are some ideas for choosing clothing that will make your boobs appear larger and fuller, without any hint of pain. The secret lies in selecting the right color, pattern and style.
1. A foolproof way to make your chest appear larger is by choosing color correctly. Bold, solid colors (think fuchsia, turquoise, electric blue and red) will draw attention to your chest area – which is looking great thanks to that awesome bra underneath.
2. Horizontal stripes are absolutely the best pattern for making your boobs look bigger, as they emphasize the chest area by making your curves appear wider. Lettering or patterns which run across the breast line will also add more emphasis. However, stay away from overall busy patterns and shiny, glittery fabrics. They will distract the eye and make your chest blend into the scenery.
3. The style and cut of your clothes is also very important. Again, choose styles that emphasize and draw the eye to the chest. Button-up tops are great, as are square necklines. Fitted t-shirts also emphasize the boobs, but plunging necklines do not. While a low neckline would seem to show off what little you have, in reality it’s just going to draw attention to your lack thereof. Crewnecks and turtlenecks are a better choice since they make the chest appear bigger and broader. Another trick is to layer on a shawl collar vest (one that wraps around and ties underneath the breasts, making them appear fuller).
Utilize these tips, and you’ll soon be maximizing your assets with confidence!
