I really like this bustier I spotted on Pinterest. Its a nice colour and I dig the pattern. Love the little touches of lace around the breasts.
The model is gorgeous and she’s rocking some serious curves and the bustier gives her great shape. This is a really lovely garment.
It’s just a shame that it doesn’t fit.
The cup on the bustier, and in fact on all bras and quite a number of dresses and tops, is designed to sit at the narrowest part ie directly under the breasts. That’s the function of this sort of top, to support the breasts.
The line is not sitting under the breast, in fact it’s just balancing there about nipple line.
There’s no way to wear a garment that fits like this because it will move. It will either slide up and that wonderful cleavage is lost, or it will slide down and whole lot more cleavage than you were bargaining on will be out there on display.
When you’re choosing an empire line or a fitted top make sure that the hemline under the breasts sits under the breast. It should draw a line under your breasts or alternative in the example below actual around your breast. If it’s not cupping you, it doesn’t fit, and frankly, it looks wrong.
Personally I need to avoid bustiers’ and other tops that have this sort of line since it’s very difficult for someone with such a large cup size as me to get well fitting tops. Viva those manufacturers who do create tops for the top heavy amongst us.
Wearing clothes that fit is an essential for anyone wanting to look good. Plus, you know, it’s just that much more comfortable when the clothes you wear actually work with your body.
