Large breasts, if you have them you know it can be like carrying a small child on your chest. So as the weather gets warmer, and the clothing gets skimpier, we want to be able to help you make it through the summer.
Don’t look like a boob at work.
Don’t you wish you could just be naked during the hottest days of the summer? But you can’t because you have to go to work, and unless you’re a stripper, clothing is not optional.
If you’ve got big jugs, then you have to learn the art of balance. To balance out your large chest, try wearing wide-leg pants or a-line skirts. This will help proportion your entire body. Also, wear styles that flatter larger chests. While you think that a crew neck might “hide,” your chest, you should go for looks that compliment your décolletage. Sweetheart necklines and v-neck shirts will compliment your cleavage not look like you have something to hide.
It’s what’s underneath that matters.
You need to have a well-fitting bra. If your bra does not fit well, your boobs will suffer. Fin. Your bra is too small if there is any spillage from the sides, and if you can stick your hand comfortably in your bra, then it’s too big. Get yourself professionally fitted to know what size you really wear.
Mind your posture.
Don’t slouch! You might be slouching because your breasts are so heavy they hurt your back. Stop! Stand up straight and be proud! If you have serious back pain, look into getting a reduction. It can be covered under many medical insurances, depending on the size of your breasts.
If there is a day you have to wear a heavier blazer or can’t wear something light, you might try using baby powder or spray deodorant your body, including in your bra. Yes, you might look like a newborn underneath; however, it will keep you cool. Ever perspire underneath your breasts because of the heat? These can help can minimize or even prevent the problem because they will act as absorbents. Sweaty boobs, no more!
