In tears over Facebook photo help me find a flattering outfit please!
I went out last night in a cream blouse, black skinniest and grey biker. I have just seen a photo on Facebook and I looked awful, so awful i am sat in tears. My diet is now on but in the meantime I'm an apple with big boobs, 5ft1 and a 10/12. I have a big party next week with a photographer please help me look ok! I'm thinking a dress but can't find anything.
I sometimes think that if you have a big boobs wearing a loose top that hangs off them can make you look very square, and bigger than you are.
I agree that something like a skater dress which emphasises your boobs, but nips in a the waist before flaring out over the stomach, can be much more flattering. An empire line top, or a dress you throw a belt over can do the same sort of thing.
I also think skinny jeans can make you look a bit top heavy if you're big of boob.
I have an empire line that recently came out of retirement for a wedding reception.
It's now gone back in the back of the wardrobe for when I'm pregnant. It looked really nice but it made me look like I should have been sticking to the orange juice! I swear it never used to do that haha. The big belt thing is a good idea though, I know some bigger ladies who go with it and it really looks good
