Dress to Enhance Small Breasts

Lots of women view their small breasts as problems instead of assets. All women should embrace their body type, and it's okay to want to showcase what you do have. Simply dressing in certain ways and using certain styles can enhance your small breasts without resorting to cosmetic surgery.

  1. 1

    Wear a push-up or padded bra. If your top is low cut, the push-up bra will make your boobs peak out of the top and make them appear larger. Underwire bras are good for giving your breasts a boost as well.

  2. 2

    Buy dresses and shirts with horizontal stripes. The stripes add width and depth to that area of the body. This is the reason they say large people should opt for vertical stripes in place of horizontal ones.

  3. 3

    Look for empire waists. These high-waisted dresses and tops create a more hourglass shape and emphasize the breasts. A dress that's belted with a wide belt right under the bustline is another option.

  4. 4

    Pick tops that include details like runching or gathering. Also, lace and crepe-like materials tend to add a bit of volume to the chest area.

  5. 5

    Shop for shirts with a tighter fit. This makes your boobs look bigger, for obvious reasons.

  6. 6

    Show some skin. With small boobs, you can get away with skimpier outfits without looking slutty. Extreme v-necks work well, as do halters and tube tops. You don't need to wear a bra with these styles, but consider using double-sided adhesive tape to ensure that your top doesn't shift while you're wearing it, unless, of course, you like flashing strangers.
