How to wear summer's off-the-shoulder top trend when you have big boobs
There’s no denying that off-the-shoulder tops are one of the hottest summer fashion staples, and that they give off a pretty bohemian vibe that’s like no other. However, pulling off this trend isn’t always easy. If you’re well-endowed in the boob area, you may be nervous about an awkward fit when shopping for the perfect piece. Before you decide that the off-shoulder trend is something you could never execute, know that it’s entirely possible. You might just need the right tools — or undergarment — to make you feel comfortable, according to stylist Belle Bakst.
“Busty girls need to have two things in their arsenal to wear this fun top,” Belle Bakst, stylist and founding editor of Little Fashion Stylist, tells HelloGiggles. “One of the best keep secrets to keep cleavage intact and breasts in place is boob glue, which can be used before wearing anything daring, low-cut, or off the shoulder.”
A powerhouse strapless bra is also mandatory, according to Bakst. While out shopping for a piece to go with your favorite off-the-shoulder top, she recommends looking for a bra with rubber strips on the inner band. She also says it’s important to look for a bra that offers a snug fit, because you’ll want to be comfortable as much as possible.
