Tops for Busty Bodies


Are you busty? Even though some people may not believe it, being busty can be tough. Some tops look like tents, others strain at the seams, and being plus-sized means that tops aren't always easy to find. Keep these tips in mind when you're shopping for tops that will flatter your busty figure. These styles really work.

1. Contrasting Trims

Show off your shape with contrasting trim around the neckline and underneath the bust. For an added figure-flattering touch, find a top with comfortable kimono sleeves and a back sash tie.

2. Cowl Necks

Cowl necks can drape across your bust. If you feel like shirts always look too tight on your curvy upper body, this is a perfect solution. This sleeveless top is perfect for layering.

3. Deep Button-Ups

Choose to button your shirt up as far as you want during the day, and then show a little more skin for evening. Deep browns will look great for any season, and they aren't too severe for your complexion. Layer your tee over a strappy tank and leave a few more buttons undone for a color contrast. Mix it up with a printed layer underneath and a plain top over.

4. Off-the-Shoulder Tops

These Off-the -Shoulder tops are so sexy and shapely. Show off a little skin along the shoulder line without baring it all. For those concerned with bra straps, layer a wide-strapped tank underneath in fresh white or simple taupe.

5. Scoop Neck Tees

If you can show a little more skin along the neckline, a heavy bust will look higher and more shapely. For added appeal, rub a little shimmer body lotion along your clavicle area.

6. V-Neck Halter Tops
