Dressing for Your Shape: From My Closet to Yours

Choosing the right tops and adding the right accessories were the two main tips I provided this week about how to dress when you have a large bust. When exploring these tips, we discussed finding the perfect neckline and tailoring clothes to fit your body, as well as adding the right size accessories and wearing them in the right places. For more detailed information on these tips, look here and here.

Today, I’m going to try to share some options for using these tips. As I noted in my earlier posts, trial and error, as well as confidence, are key. If you try on a top or an accessory and it doesn’t work, that’s okay! Keep trying because you will eventually find the pieces that are right for you!


  • Striped puff sleeve v-neck available for $59.90 at Banana Republic here – casual with thin stripes!
  • The Limited print front tank available for $34.90 here – pretty floral and bright color!
  • Liz Claiborne ¾ sleeve v-neck print top available for $22 at JCPenney here – trendy geometric print!


  • Givenchy drama color necklace available for $175 at Belk here – multi-strand necklace with beautiful pearls and 16 in length!
  • Fossil turquoise stone necklace available for $94 at Belk here – statement stones and 18 in length!
  • Charlotte Russe 2-tone twisted necklace available for $12.50 here – chunky two-tone strands and 7.5 in length!

  • Cowl neck sleeveless maternity top available for $20 at JCPenney here – beautiful color and work appropriate!

P.S. Did you know JCPenney has maternity clothes in petite, plus, and tall sizes on their website? 

Plus Size

  • Calvin Klein performance twisted v-neck top available for $22.98 at Carson’s here – comfy casual!
  • Old Navy ¾ sleeve seamed-yoke tops available for $10 here – unique style and bold color!


  • LOFT salt and pepper gem necklace tee available for $49.50 here – elegant beaded scoop neck!
  • Banana Republic ¾ sleeve wrap tee available for $34.99 here – flattering wrap style!

Which pieces are your favorite? This is my best guess for how to apply the rules via the internet. I’m sure a model, some coffee, and a dressing room would impact my choices, though. 🙂 Would you wear any of these pieces with a large bust?

Will you be adding any of these items to your closet?
