What to Wear – Petite and Busty

The other day I received an email pleading with me to help with dressing the petite and busty figure. This body shape can easily look disproportionate and unbalanced as the scale of the bust is large, but the scale of the overall body is small and petite.

Petite and Busty
  1. Too much fabric will overwhelm you, keep garments slim and body skimming
  2. Minimise the size of your bust with lower necklines and larger scale necklaces to draw the eye upwards
  3. Upsize your necklaces by wearing pieces made from multiple smaller pieces rather than larger pieces which will wear you
  4. Keep your mid-section free of detail.  Your large bust will make your waist look shorter than it is.  End tops around your hip bone.
  5. Keep your tops more boring – unless it’s a busy dense small scale pattern.
  6. Look for vertical detailing to elongate your frame.
  7. Jackets are great at hiding your bust and the opening will create slimming verticals on your body
