It’s not impossible and one top that does flatter is a wrap top. Look for fabric that lays flat on the chest, has a snap at the top of the cleavage or an interior tie, and a wrap that hits below the bust line. It’s important not to choose a wrap top with a cleavage that hits too far into the bust line. Some ideas for where to find the right faux wrap tops are Audrey Faux Wrap Top found at Kiyonna.
Another type of top that flatters is one that adds shape and give room for the bust. Look for vertical darts, bust darts, a waist line that hits the natural waist as it is the smallest area, and side zippers that are instead of buttons. The Fishnet Mesh Peplum Top found at Ashley Stewart is a great see through style that still creates a classy silhouette. Another option is the Silk Tie Neck Blouse from Nordstrom. This top comes with a scarf tie at the top of the blouse and an ombre effect that flatters. This top also has vertical darts that flatter the figure.
A third option for flattering tops for big bust is the Dolman sleeve – either long or short.These tops have bigger, flowing sleeves that leave some breathing room for the bust and accentuate the positive. Once again the zipper is necessary so as not to find a top with buttons that make the top gape and the bust look bad. The perfect place to find this type of top is at Anthropology or Torrid. Remember the golden rule, to find one with a zipper and no buttons.
