Let’s get one thing straight from the outset here – there is no one piece of shapewear that’s perfect for every busty woman out there. We’re not going to lump you all together into a big boobied pile! But if boobs are your biggest asset, it’s good to know how to dress them. And in all likelihood, that’ll change depending on the occasion, the outfit and the mood that you’re in that day. So from lifting to minimising, making a splash to staying subdued, we’re going to take a look at how different types of shapewear work for our bustier babes!
The Perfect Bra
Lift and support are the order of the day for all boobs, but especially so when it comes to curvier shapes. However, finding that perfect bra can be something of the quest! In terms of the garment that you choose, there are certain features that are a must, but it doesn’t end there.
Supportive panelling with a foundation of underwire will give the most sustained uplift in your bra. Look for a full cup to enjoy ultimate support, and straps that are a good balance of width for comfort and detail for just feeling pretty!
Of course, you can find the best bra in the world and if it’s not the right size it’ll fail in support and comfort! This is why it’s vital to check your measurements every 6 months or so, and to refresh your bra stock regularly. You may find that you fluctuate in breast size with hormone levels, so for some women it’s worthwhile to have a couple of sizes in your drawers!
Fabric has so much to do with comfort. Especially if you’re wearing a shapewear garment or bra all day. Moulding lycra has such fantastic supportive qualities, while being breathable and soft. That’s not to say that you should shun lace of course. Indeed with some gorgeous bras that incorporate these two fabrics, you can have the best of both worlds!
When you’ve found the perfect bra, then, what next? Your silhouette takes in your whole body, not just your boobs. Indeed, the support that the rest of your body gets has an impact on your boobs and how you carry yourself. So check out shapewear that works in tandem with that perfect bra that you’ve discovered!
When balancing larger breasts within an overall silhouette, smoothing your torso can help. This makes your boob line more defined, and it will also help to support your back. Check out open bust options like an open busted control slip. This anchors from your shoulders to give great stability. It’ll work with your chosen bra and smooth your line all the way from bust to hips and thighs.
If you’d prefer a control brief, look for high-rise waist options. These garments will again smooth your silhouette from your bust to your hips, but have an added flexibility. For extra security, you can tuck high-rise control briefs under your bra line. This support works beautifully with your uplift bra to create a well balanced shape for bustier babes!
All In One
Of course, let’s not forget the all in one solutions. From corsets to cami’s, a full torso shaping garment is a great foundation. These are especially suited to shaping for evening wear or any time that you want to feel that extra bit sexy! The right corset can give you the uplift under a low cut dress that will absolutely make the most of your bustier babe status. Because sometimes we all want to flaunt our assets! A cami or bodysuit is less extreme, but gives a great overall defined shape while looking gorgeous in its own right.
In short: find a bra you love, and keep a range of shapewear for all occasions, and your boobies will always be looking and feeling fabulous!
