Our fashion industry has too often been guilty over the years of forgetting that women have boobs – and they need dressing. YOU’s fashion editor Sophie Dearden, size 34E, knows the problems all too well. And she has solutions…
Special occasions can be daunting: you want to look fabulous but big boobs can make an outfit feel revealing. I’m going to be a bridesmaid this summer and my first thought when I tried on the dress was, ‘I won’t be able to look my friend’s dad in the eye!’ But why should I feel bad just for having more bust? So I retried it with a new attitude and now I love it. When shopping for events, I find it hard to find dresses that fit my bust, waist and hips beautifully, so I’m a big fan of separates, which allow you to play with shapes. And sizing up jackets avoids them being pulled apart by my boobs. A nipped-in waist will also stop your bust from dictating your shape.
