How To Layer Tops with a Large Bust


I absolutely love your blog and follow it religiously. It’s helped make my shopping quicker and easier. I have cleaned out my closet to match my clothing with more flattering styles, and I have shared it with so many friends. Thank you!
My question today is around wearing sweaters. In the States it is getting cold, and functionally, I need more than just a long-sleeved shirt. However, I am a H body style who is large breasted and thus have little/no waist. What styles of sweaters could look good without bulking up my top too much and making me seem even fuller or top heavy? I’d love to own a few pull over sweaters and a few cardigans in the right style to be beautiful, stylish, and comfortable without being top heavy.  Any ideas?
Thanks so much!
