Look to these new tips when considering breast size as you make your next swimsuit purchase. Be prepared to be surprised, as some old rules simply no longer apply.
Large Breasted Women
Not all large breasted women are the same. Consider age and cup size when selecting your suit. A large cup will need ample straps and breasts feeling the affects of gravity with age need a quality material with a high percentage of spandex. Use the following tips when you shop:
- Do not be afraid of the bikini, but make sure to cover the entire breast area
- Stay away from the triangle top
- Embellishments are acceptable, but look for embroidery or inset stones.
- Avoid ruffles or large embellishments across the breast, you will appear top heavy
- Pick a quality material, flimsy cotton is not substantial enough
- A halter top with complete coverage is good
- Avoid halters that cause side breast overflow. The overflow adds weight and is unattractive.
Small Breasted Women
You can wear almost any style of top, but some will give the illusion of a fuller breast, if that is the look you want.
- A halter will give make your breasts appear larger
- You can wear tops with larger embellishments
- Small breasted women can rock the triangle top
- Do not be afraid of plunging necklines, you will look great
- The bandeau can emphasize your small breasts, but go ahead and wear one. Embrace your breast size!
- Side cut-outs can make you look curvier, if that is your desire
