How to Make Breasts Look Smaller Without Surgery

Updated April 17, 2017

Many women are unhappy with their natural breast size and often wish they were larger or smaller. Although surgery is an effective measure to take when reducing breast size, many women are afraid to go under the knife. Luckily, there are several avenues to take to reduce the appearance of your breasts without having to resort to surgery.

Use minimiser bras to visually reduce the size of your breasts. Minimiser bras work by flattening or compressing the breasts and reshaping them to create a smaller bust line. These types of bras are ideal if you don't want to buy larger clothes to accommodate your breasts and instead would like to wear more fitted tops. Click the reference link below for examples of minimiser bras.

Stay away from tight fitting clothing that accentuates your bust and waist area. Clingy sweaters and ill-fitting button-up tops are examples of clothing that will make your breasts look larger. When purchasing blouses, go for slightly larger sizes that will provide roomy comfort for your bust and waist while giving you a more proportional silhouette.

Wear proper fitting bras that support and lift your breasts. Support is important for larger breasted women, and wearing the wrong bra size can make your breasts look bigger and appear "saggy" or look low on your chest. On top of wearing minimiser bras, making sure you have been properly fitted will help reduce the appearance of your breasts.

Wear dark blouses. Bright, lively colours such as white and yellow draw more attention to the body. Darker colours such as plum, blue and black are known as slimming colours and can make your breasts appear smaller.
