Vertical yes, horizontal no
We all know that horizontal stripes broaden and vertical stripes stretch . The same principle applies to dividing seams, by the way.
Slim lines for your upper body
Try to avoid styles that add volume to your upper body, like puffy sleeves, frills, flounces or breast pockets.
Smooth, slimline tops flatter your shape, while loose-fitting, shapeless tops would over-emphasise your chest area and make you look much bigger than you are.
Secret tip: think about the cut of your trousers
Believe it or not: the shape of your trousers can impact on the way your upper body looks! Super-skinny jeans, for example, will make your chest look huge.
Better: trousers and skirts with a straight cut emphasise a slim silhouette without neglecting female proportions. Super important for busty women: a good posture. As the saying goes: “Stomach in, chest out, shoulders back.”
