I've had my hair cut short (v short) for about a year and I'm really struggling to find clothes to suit that style and not feel mannish. The style suits my face but I'm letting it down clothes wise. I thought highish round necks would work as I'm not a fan of too much bare neck now I have no hair on my neck, but Im size 16 with a big chest so just end up looking fat, especially with all the pretty jumpers out there. Any ideas?

What about wearing a lower neckline and breaking up the chest area with jewellery?

or try a round neck top with a V or Scoop neck over it?

Slash neck tops and jumpers, good for big norks also

To minimise the look of your large chest you need to expose more flesh. Sounds counter intuitive but it works.It doesn't mean lots of cleavage. Try a scoop or square neck. You could always wear a scarf or big necklace too.
