I love having Big Breasts and a Big Butt because it gives the illusion of a small waist! 🤗 I'm a 40G and pretty much have same waist and slightly smaller Hip measurement. I agree with your bra suggestions save one, no Boning. I have side scars from wearing them a good 20 years. I no longer wear them. Unfortunately, good support bras cost upwards of $45 to $60 EACH. I have Nipple piercings so I stay good and clear from Solid Colors. I LOVE patterns. I love Scarves. I love Vests. If I had quality support bras, I would not need to disguise them. 🤗
I'm petite with big bust, 38DD on a 5 feet 1 inch body, narrow hips, medium waist. Shopping is a nightmare. Anything that got a my height or hips does not fit my chest. I look like the negative examples you show. I have settled for always dressing boxy. Thanks for addressing this Justine, very helpful
First I want to say that I love your channel. I am rather blessed in the upper half. The problem that I have is the bras that would be comfortable and have the best support, are not produced in my size. I am a 40G and have a really hard time finding any bras. When you're that size underwires really are painful because of all the extra weight they carry. Would you please pass along this information to all the designers. I need your help. Thank you.
I wear a 38 F and a shift dress would be my last choice of any dress ever. It just makes me look like a tent. Especially one with a high neck. High neck on big bust really exaggerates the breasts. Wider necklines look the best on me. Even more than v necks. Boat necks and scoop necks and my personal favourites; off the shoulder necklines. Wrap dresses or wrap tops are also something i always avoid. The way they cut in between your breasts really exaggerate them and pull them front and center. I never wear those.
5:29 doesn’t work for big breast. Wrap around dresses always make the breast feel a little bit much. So I keep away from wrap around dresses. Bodycon dresses work well for me as they take the focus elsewhere.
Hi I would REALLY LOVE if u make a video covering what to wear to help flatter different boob types. Like big boobs, little boobs, and that with body shape too. This would be so so helpful since no one talks about not just the different body types but also how to dress to flatter your body type AND your bust or boob type!
Your videos have definitely helped me shop better and smarter. Previously I just used to buy anything that looked good to my eye but ended up having more clothes in my wardrobe but nothing to wear! Now I buy few pieces and wear them all. Thanks for such informative videos ❤️
If you are looking for sewing patterns that are both beautiful and flattering, I have had great success with Cashmerette patterns. There are many examples of curvy women wearing her patterns on her website, and the fit is excellent. So, even of you don’t sew, you can have someone sew for you and it will fit and flatter. (Not a paid affiliate, just someone who loves to sew and fit her own clothes.)
Thank you for the Video, and Thank you to all of you that commented. I'm really starting to understand why certain articles I have,look so bad on me. It's not me, it's the shirt or dress. :) I would like to ask everyone's opinion on wearing scarfs. I love them and I own a few but I don't believe I'm wearing them properly. At least not in a way that is flattering to a large breasted women. Justine has a video and scarfs, any advise on which style would be best for a big bust in winter?
In New Zealand you won't get garments with darts. Perhaps it's time to get my sewing machine out and refashion a shirt. Button through tops are an issue too. Everyone with a big bust knows it's tricky, particularly if you're short.
I have found shift dresses are ok if they are more of a fitted one. Not a wiggle dress but in between. Otherwise it can look sack-like.
Also, you didn’t mention necklines. Generally, it’s better to have one. Haha. By that I mean round, square, V, U, anything that adds some space between neck and top of dress. Turtle necks are a never do. It’s like a giant expanse of top and sort of makes the chest look like one big boob.
I agree that darts are your friends and you need a good alterations person because I know I am not alone in having to buy a dress to fit the chest and then having to have it taken in everywhere else...
Great video 🌸 I would just love to see the examples on models who actually have larger breasts - to give me an idea of what it looks like instead of having to use my imagination to fill in a large breast on the model. Great tips though 👍
This is a really good video for me with my "generousness" lol
May I ask, however, for some help about how to dress a bigger bottom, too?
I cycle a lot and my bottom and thighs are also pretty difficult to dress t.t
Any tips to dress classy for work without looking like a prude?
Hello Justine :) I like your videos and your attitude towards fashion - especially the fast fashion problem of our world. I also appreciate, that as a young designer you underline the value of quality and you also acknowledge the existence of many diverse human body types - it is very rare at the clothing market. However, I find it dissapointing that you show in this video the kind of bra every large-boobed woman really hate - the Nun's Tent. European lingerie market has really changed over the last decade and it is actually possible to find bras in almost any cup and band size possible, which are both supportive and attractive :)
Thanks Justine, I always enjoy watching your videos and I love the way you talk :)
However, this video is not for really large busted ladies. Being 75E, hourglass shaped, dress size M, I can tell you shirts never fit, no matter how many darts they have. And yes, the A-shift dresses just make girls like me look pregnant, even if they have rather flat belly in reality. I have to wear (button) shirts at work, and I always fix them with double-sided tape, so they don't open at the bust area. And yet, they are baggy everywhere else. I buy shirts with defined waist area, but usually they don't fit well enough. I guess the best solution is to have my clothes tailored :)
I look for a yoke with a pleat in back to give me more boob room. I think better made clothes have yokes and the detail visually breaks up my wide shoulders. I have NEVER EVER seen a single top with princess seaming in a plus size garmet. I think that speaks volumes for the quality and styling of all plus size garments. It's disgusting.
The sizing charts manufacturers publish for plus sizes lie about chest dimensions. In Torrid I should be a 2 and LB I should be a 18. I go to Thred Up where they take actual measurements and Torrid size 4 is too small, LB size 26 can be too small in the chest. Everywhere else they are accurate (and grossly oversized for me). I'm not crazy. Manufacturers are lying and reducing chest sizes. Was I supposed to cut off my boobs when I gained weight? I know I was supposed to shrink 3" - 6" as a plus size based on extended manufacturers size charts for torso and inseam length. That really sucks if someone is over 5'4".
You might be interested in a study done by Thred Up that compares actual measurements within specific brands. Not many follow their own size charts. I'm not a 100% on the methodology they used but it is the largest of it's kind and worthwhile.
Usually women with naturally large breasts have either an ‘apple’ shaped figure, meaning they have broader shoulders & carry their weight around the middle & have slimmer hips & legs. Or they have an ‘hour glass’ figure with a smaller waist & their upper & lower parts are more in proportion. So a shift or A-line dress suits an apple figure & a wrap dress looks best on a hour glass figure. With tops, a v neck with a wide & slightly lose shape that sits just below the hips looks best on an apple shape, but it shouldn’t be too baggy or long as it then makes the bust look bigger as it falls straight from the bust. More fitted tops that emphasizes the waist look best on hour glass figures. It’s more difficult to dress an apple shaped figure with a large bust because you have to hide the waist as well yet also try not to look completely shapeless & give a boxy look.
i dont agree about the granny bra or the a line dresses with the line in the middle of the boobs, it makes your boobs look like they don't fit and sometimes makes them look saggy depending on the dress, and if you have a very large chest you will just look a lot bigger in your midsection. but i totally agree about the wrap dress, looks so good with a large chest
Usually the person with big breast have also a belly .as a person with big breast I like to saw a little not to caver them .if a cover l look like a box. It make more appealing and take the eye out of the belly if I have v neck or smile neck..
Asos have a fuller bust range of clothing. My arms and stomach are a size 8 but i get a size 10 for my chest. I made a mistake of buying a size 10 fuller bust shirt while i shud have bought a size 8 fuller bust shirt - was too late to return . From the UK
I absolutely adore your personality. You are one of those rare people that brighten up the room when they walk in!!! I also appreciate the immense amount of fashion knowledge and sense you instill on us, your viewers. I don't know how you know so much.. but I am glad you know it.. just watching your videos, I learn a little bit about the clothes I cannot wear. Thank you again for posting these great videos... would love to hear one in your native french... with subtitles of course! =]
I really like your videos. Thanks so much. Have you made a video on how to style a smaller bust? Especially with dresses it can get difficult because the bust is being tailored for more. ;) Push-up bras are not always my fav solution and also it shows to the trained eye... Thanks in advance!
Hi Justine! I stumbled on your channel yesterday and I've probably watched at least a dozen of your videos - I love them! Your advice is so practical and you have a wealth of knowledge. I have a large bust and agree with all of your tips. I love shift dresses, wrap dresses, v- neck anything, and darts are genius. I have a question though....I will stay away from round neck tops or high necklines because I think they make my bust appear larger.... am I incorrect in thinking like this?
All my life I'm ashamed bcs of this, I even wore tight trico as younger. "Grandma's" style of bra only suits me, it really can tight good.
Even with my tummy(all life,too) and stupid bust, I learned myself to dress and no one ever notice my problem. Simple but good is my device. Never cheap. Cover anomalies. Always wear anything to distruct attention: good bag or shoes or scarf or 1 interesting part of a wardrobe. Nothing much! Just simple!
No one believes me when I say I have anomalies.
I was disappointed with this video. Yes there were some good tips but not nearly enough and I found some of the ideas odd. Me, I'm skinny but have a big bust and broad shoulders. My figure doesn't bother me but I like to look nice! -Any shift dress makes me look like I'm wearing a tent - I can't have that much material augmenting my 'top heavy' figure regardless of how well it's cut. In a dress I look for sleeveless, preferably v neck and I need some fullness in the skirt to counterbalance my broad shoulder line. Also: I'm surprised you didn't mention neck lines more. They make an enormous difference. A sweetheart neckline works best for me in tops, especially if the top has cap sleeves. In my case, the neckline somehow flattens my chest, and the cap sleeves hide my bra and break up the wide shoulder line. I've seen lots of programmes where designers talk about counterbalancing the generous upper body with flared skirts or wide pants and those are options which work really well for me too but you didn't mention them. If there's others like me, I hope the tips I picked up along the way help!!!
I don't necessarily want to hide my bust. I would rather look busty than fat. Trying to hide it just make me look fat. I am so tiered of saying to guys I am not fat I am chesty. When did curvy start meaning fat? The darts & the wide V works the rest doesn't. A shift dress would make me look pregnant!!! How about a video that embraces large bust small waist without looking slutty!?!??
shirts with darts don't fit women with big breasts. The darts are never on the right level. And Blazer look always stupid on women with big breasts, especially if you want to close the buttons. but in buisiness-world people always expect women to wear Blazers. Tell with what cloth a woman with e.g. 95 G can replace a Blazer.
Can you do a video about different types of bras? Also can you cover things like "nipple covers" and body tape/fabric tape? Knowing what bras to wear with different clothes would be very helpful. Thanks!
thanks for your viedo about this. This is a topic that has bothered me ever since I was a teenager. I am 21 now and I just had to replace all my 75F bras and buy 75G.
The struggle is real when it comes to find bras that fit and truly support the bust. To this day I have never owned a bra that fit and supperted the bust at the same time while still having to pay a huge amount of money for it. Also I have problems finding clothing. While I have a size 38 at the waist I would need a 42 or even 44 at the bust. I usually end up buying my tops in 40 or 42. But while it streches on the bust it looks like a tent on the waist. This is so frustrating.
I love my feminine hourglass body, really, I do! But because of this I've come to be very anxious about my body. Whatever I wear, I never feel comfortable or I can never say: Today I look great!
I know what would look good on me because I've researched this topic for years. But how do I find clothes that really fit? What are good brands vor an hourglass body with really big busts? My life would change for the better if I knew that, so please help me!
And please don't write mean comments! Sometimes I feel like I wasn't allowed to complain about this. I even heard people being sarcastic about it like: Oooooh I am such a poor girl, my body is too perfect and beautiful. I wish I looked like her!
I definitely fall into the larger bust category but don't like v-necks - they overemphasize the girls. I find that a sweetheart neckline or a boat neck top will do a better job of balancing out my body, vs. a v-neck. As far as designers who make clothing that sits well on me, Boden is pretty good - they usually have enough buttons, with ones right at the widest part of the chest, so no gaps!
Love your tips,, thank u🌹
However I Love my boobs’ and I prefer a bit of cleavage. What’s the point of covering them too much or try to hide them or make them look smaller!
Love ur body and flaunt your god given Beauty ladies😂😍😂
I always thought it's just me and my breasts why the shirt opens and shows my bra... until I saw a skinny friend, B cup, having the same problem :) I always wondered who makes women shirts without considering boobs? Do they ever test them on real people to see that breasts have to be taken into account? But this was a long time ago, now I know what to look for. Thank you for the bra tip and what to look for in them (I'm a DD)
I have a few questions...
The bra you provided a link for only goes to to a G cup, that’s not even what I would call big. I’m still searching for affordable bras in large sizes, any suggestions? Up to K cup.
- you’ve suggested a shirt with darts. Fab. What if there are 10 dress sizes difference in what fits you round the back, shoulders etc to what you can do up? I should wear size 14 but for sake of boobs I need size 24, which is actually a tent on me (5’1”)
Why do larger sizes assume you are taller?
Shift dress..... in what universe would that look good on someone with big boobs?
I want you to get a football (that’s an English football) cut it in half, fill both sides with sand. Attach them to your body and re-do the video after trying to shop. Although judging by the length of your fingers I’m guessing you’re about 5’8” so still won’t face all the problems I do.
Oh, while you’ve got the fake boobs on, try eating, laying down and putting socks on. 👍🏻
Thank you for the advice. I wish I had seen this when I was young and perpetually embarrassed and uncomfortable with not only my body, but literally uncomfortable in clothing either too small or if generous in the bust, completely too big in sleeve length and waist.
the problem I have is to fit my style to my body type, cos they go into different directions
I have curves, especially in breasts aria, and all the tips I get for my body type is mostly what I don't like or I would never wear or simply doesn't reflect my style.
i love your videos - I wonder if you could offer some advice for someone who had very large arms - and nota typical body shape - what about when you are in between shapes? for instance - a pear/hourglass shape - tiny waist hips a little larger but very close to bust
Vos vidéos sont très intéressantes, pourriez vous les sous titré en français ?
Merci pour votre fabuleux travail, malheureusement je ne maîtrise pas complètement l'anglais et certains détails m'échappent
I also want to say that it's a great idea to avoid prints that are situated across your breasts or else the print will crack faster than if you had smaller breasts. I found this out after lots of ruined shirts. :(
A trigger is a named PL/SQL unit that is stored in the database and executed ( fired ) in response to a specified event that occurs in the database.
Overview of Triggers.
A trigger is a named program unit that is stored in the database and fired (executed) in response to a specified event. The specified event is associated with either a table, a view, a schema, or the database, and it is one of the following:
A database manipulation (DML) statement ( DELETE , INSERT , or UPDATE )
A database definition (DDL) statement ( CREATE , ALTER , or DROP )
A database operation ( SERVERERROR , LOGON , LOGOFF , STARTUP , or SHUTDOWN )
The trigger is said to be defined on the table, view, schema, or database.
A DML trigger is fired by a DML statement, a DDL trigger is fired by a DDL statement, a DELETE trigger is fired by a DELETE statement, and so on.
An INSTEAD OF trigger is a DML trigger that is defined on a view (not a table). The database fires the INSTEAD OF trigger instead of executing the triggering DML statement. For more information, see Modifying Complex Views (INSTEAD OF Triggers).
A system trigger is defined on a schema or the database. A trigger defined on a schema fires for each event associated with the owner of the schema (the current user). A trigger defined on a database fires for each event associated with all users.
A simple trigger can fire at exactly one of the following timing points :
Before the triggering statement executes.
After the triggering statement executes.
Before each row that the triggering statement affects.
After each row that the triggering statement affects.
A compound trigger can fire at more than one timing point. Compound triggers make it easier to program an approach where you want the actions you implement for the various timing points to share common data. For more information, see Compound Triggers.
