It’s all about the balance

This week I will talk about styles for the woman who is Bigger on the Top.

To create the illusion of an hourglass shape you should look to add the appearance of volume to the bottom, whether by style or by color.  Skirts should be an A-line that hits just below the knee as well as pants that fall away from the hip rather than skinny silhouette and definitely not leggings. Scarves and necklaces should be long to give you the illusion of additional height.  If prints are used in the upper half, they should be small rather than bold which also applies to colors. If a bold color is on top it should be repeated on the bottom in some form.   Just keep in mind that you are trying to minimize the top and add to the bottom.  And the absolute must, a great fitting bra.  Before you buy your next bra have a professional fitting by a staff member at the store, whether it is a Department store or a local specialty shop.

I have put together a few examples of the styles that would look best for the woman who is bigger on the top.
