If you’re a regular reader of the SilkFred blog, you’ll know that we don’t shy away from the personal (read: embarrassing) stuff. Yes, I’m referring to my experiences of IBS and excess sweating.
Now, it’s time for a confession: I do not have big boobs. In fact, I basically have the opposite issue. But chats with friends and co-workers mean I’m well aware of the issues faced by gals blessed with bigger busts when it comes to workwear.
From gaping buttons to too-tight fits, a lot of the high street’s work-friendly tops are designed for smaller lady lumps. That’s why we’ve compiled an edit of smart and comfy tops that will suit anyone who’s curvier up top.
Featuring flattering wrap tops and ruffled blouses, these picks are smart enough for your 9-to-5 and can be worn with any kind of bra.
Sleeves For Days
While we’re always wary of fashion ‘rules’, we have to admit that wide sleeves are really flattering for those with bigger busts. Better still, this loose-sleeved style is comfy enough for the office *and* rocks a fresh floral print. Just add black trousers and whatever footwear feels good.
This vibrant wrap top teams an abstract print with a super flattering fit – and it’s totally bra-friendly! This long-sleeved style is an ideal option for chilly offices plagued by dodgy air-conditioning units. Although we’ve paired this chic top with leather skinnies, she also looks good teamed with pencil skirts or comfy jeans.
This kimono knot top is a gorgeous option for those with a larger bust. Thanks to its flattering wrap fit, this blouse promises to conceal your bra and avoid those annoying gaping issues. Layer this suit-all shirt under your go-to work blazer and wear with comfy heels.
Make A Statement
Statement shirts aren’t just for boozy brunches or nights at the bar! Featuring a relaxed fit, this roomy blouse is perfect for those with a big bust. While we’ve styled this balloon-sleeved piece with faux leather shorts, we recommend teaming her with smart trousers for work.
A figure-skimming blouse cut from the softest satin-feel fabric? Yes, please! While this sleek shirt will flatter *every* figure, we think it’s particularly well-suited for gals with big boobs thanks to its relaxed fit. Tuck this silky piece into your fave work trousers, throw on a blazer and go!
