Style approach

Play up the bottom to balance the body. We’re going for visual balance/symmetry and to minimize the bust.

Pieces

Tops

  • V, square or cowl neck
  • 3/4, flare, batwing, puff or straight cut sleeve
  • Drop tops, trapeze, empire waist
  • Higher cut arm holes
  • Knits that keep a close line to the body
  • Longer shirts drawing the eye down. 
  • Custom tailored button up shirts. 

Avoid: Tops with built-in volume, big shawl collars, shirts made from shiny materials (satin, silk) that reflect light and draw attention to the bust. Breast pockets and shirts that are 100% cotton (spandex will improve the fit for you)

Pants

Any style that will accentuate your bottom and leg line, such as:

  • Patterns and prints
  • Straight, boot cut, boyfriend or baggy trousers or jeans
  • Combat, palazzo, flares, wide legs
  • Embellishment on the back pockets
  • Wide belt loops, side pocket details
  • Slim-fitted waist with gradual flare to create width and balance broad shoulders

Skirts

  • Shorter length
  • Prints or bright colors
  • Soft A-line with inverted pleats
  • Straight skirts that just about cover the knee
  • Maxi skirts with a waistline
  • Full skirts

Avoid: Longer pencil skirts

Dresses

  • Minimal and clean at the top
  • Full skirted
  • Drop waist
  • Draped/loose-fitting
  • Shorter shapeless shifts
  • Narrow in the hip and cut at the bias
  • Empire seam

Avoid: Off-the-shoulder necklines and any dress that would cause you to go braless 

Jackets

  • Button below the bustline
  • Fitted, short boxy jackets with two or three buttons
  • Narrow lapel to call less attention to the chest area
  • High armholes — thinner sleeve widths create distinction between the arm and the chest

Avoid: Baggy, untailored jackets

Shoes

  • Ankle straps, booties or other statement shoes
  • Knee-high boots
  • Heavier or rounder shoes
  • Kitten or wedge heels

 

Accessories

  • Long necklaces
  • Bulky handbags that sit at the hips
  • Statement belts
