Large Breasts and Clothing Issues

Updated on August 7, 2009

Large Chested Women Need Hollywood Fashion Tape

A shopping trip for a woman, like me, with a large chest can certainly be depressing considering most of the designer clothes are sized to fit a woman with a sized B cup. If your cup runneth over, you are not in for a fun time shopping if you want to buy in-style clothes that fit your figure properly. After some of my shopping trips I have come home and researched the possibility of donating breast tissue. I don't think it's allowed though (smile).

Blouses and maxi-dresses with horizontal seams in the bodice are especially annoying. The seam is supposed to fall underneath the chest, but when you have big boobs it generally falls right across the middle of them. My solution is to avoid this style all together, shop in the maternity store, or look for blouses with the hemline falling extra low  and where the top as if they style was meant for the seam to fall beneath the bustline, instead. Recently I found a store called Bravissimo that caters to large chested women. They don't have tons of styles from which to choose, but at least they do provide a few options.

When longing to wear a top that is comfortable, cool, and sexy like the flat-chested girls, we are often stuck when it comes to shopping for strapless or spaghetti strap tops. Our bra straps are too wide for many of these blouses. However, if you can find a strappy top with fairly wide straps over the shoulder, I have found that Hollywood Fashion tap definitely helps me to line up my bra with the straps and keep them hidden. In addition, I recently noticed that some fashionable bra straps are now on the market and when you wear them they are meant to be seen. I can't say I find this idea at all appealing. I think it's in bad taste to walk around letting your bra straps show in public. I doubt I'll give this a try. I have worn the clear straps in the past. I felt a bit self conscious, but when pregnant, I was dying to wear some strapless tops that allowed me to be comfortable during the heat of the summer.

Low cut blouses and v necks are flattering when one has a large bust, however, it can also be a pain to wear these types of blouses when you have to continually pull them up just enough to hide your bra. Buying a low cut bra is difficult for a large chested woman because the boobs tend to spill partially out of the cups and make us look as though we have two pairs of breasts. Not flattering or fun to feel like a four-boobed alien. I can recall a male coworker (at my first job when I was sixteen and waiting tables) telling me I looked like I had 4 boobs once when I had on a bra that didn't fit quite right. I was horrified and embarrassed beyond belief. Luckily these days, I just whip out my Hollywood Fashion tape and put a peice at the top of each bra cup and stick my blouse to it. This solution has worked out well, even with my nine month old daughter pulling at my blouse. If she unsticks the tape by pulling, I find I can easily re-stick my blouse to the tape without issue. It lasts all day until I pull it off (with no damage to my clothing bra) at the end of the day.

      I won't spend more than £15 on one item of clothing, ever or more than £6 on a bra. I have 34H boobs and buy everything I own from Ebay or charity shops. I also never wear tops or dresses with horizontal seams and I love slouch tops, tunics and jersey dresses with leggings or tights. I literally do not wear anything else. People have suggested bravissimo to me but I am not made of money. The average price for a dress there is £45. I could buy 3 dresses for that price if I looked hard enough.

      thank you. I have just gone up 2 cup sizes during pregnancy. 12 G (34H) I was lucky to find the only bra in the shop that actually fitted me. So frustrating! The straps are so thick & all my clothes show the straps. I find myself pinning bobby pins to my clothes to hide as much bra as possible.

      I agree with these issues! Great solution for summer and lightweight clothes is www.aurevoircleavage.co.uk

      Covers your cleavage, easy to wear, lined and can be used again & again. Great alternative to heavy vests and camisoles.

      I don't have time for fashion tape when I'm rushing around in the morning. I wear Carissa Rose shirts, they take a while to fasten, but I feel confident all day long.

      There's also a company called www.odyldesign.com in the Uk. They do dresses for day and evening, fitted shirts and separates for busty girls with a D cup and above. Great quality as well using silks and Italian lace and 100% cotton. Two bust sizes per dress size to accommodate the larger bust.
