Hi! I’m Kim from Linda’s. We help women of all cup sizes, including up to an N cup! For those with a full bust, sometimes, you don’t want your chest to be the center of attention. Don’t worry – I’ve got a few ways to make your chest appear smaller without resorting to surgery.
Step 1: Wear the Right Bra Size
First, let me tell you what you should NOT do. Don’t wear a bra that’s too small. This won’t make you look smaller. In fact, this is very unflattering and can even make you appear heavy or sloppy. This Affinitas Parfait Charlotte padded bra is super sexy, but the style too very va-va-voom and the cups are too small for our model, Sonya.
Make sure that you are wearing the correct band and cup size, because a lifted bust will appear smaller, and will help you look younger, taller and thinner. Here, Sonya was fit for the right bra size and tried on the Panache Andorra. Much better!
Step 2: Minimize ‘em!
Once you know your correct size, you can invest in a minimizer bra. Minimizer bra styles, like this one from Wacoal, spread and redistribute your breast tissue in such a way that your breasts appear one to two cup sizes smaller. Basically, it takes the breast tissue from the middle of your chest and spreads it outward.
Tip: Minimizer bras are a must for large busted women who want to wear button-down blouses without puckering or gapping.
A minimizer is also great for turtlenecks or high cut tops, which can make your chest look larger. They’re a great wardrobe staple for every full busted woman!
Step 3: Lift and Separate
Wearing a bra that lifts and separates your breast tissue, instead of smushing breasts into the center of your body, will help breasts look smaller.
Bras with a high center gore and fuller coverage cups are especially best at minimizing your breast tissue. Plus, they’re supportive and look fabulous under your clothes!
My best advice to you: love what you’ve got, and wear the right size. Big or small, your breasts will always look their best in the right bra.
