Dresses for Busty Body Types

About Your Body: The busty body type is when your bust is large, your hips are narrow and often the waist is not well defined.  As a busty body type you have a proportionally larger upper body including broad shoulders, larger bust and a wide back.  Your hips are slim and your bottom is not full.  

How to Dress Your Body:  The key to dressing a busty body type is to draw attention up to your face and to balance your broader upper body with your narrower lower body to create more of an hourglass effect.  This is achieved by choosing clothes that add curves to your hips while creating a more defined waist.  If you love your legs be sure to show them, but be sure to not go too short otherwise you will further a top-heavy look.

What to Avoid:  Strapless, spaghetti straps or any tops that do not allow for support.  Detail on the bust including ruffles and shirring.  Tight stretchy fabrics through the torso.

What to Look For:  Halter tops and thick straps allowing support.  V-Neck and U-Necklines making your bust look higher.  A-Line skirts to make you look proportional.  Lower waistlines to elongate your torso.  Darker colors are more slimming.
