Nothing gives your outfits a little leverage like a cleavage. Knowing how to shape, accent, and flatter your curves can make every outfit you wear look great. Did you know that there are different cleavage types? It’s true, your curves can look dramatically different depending on the cut and fit of the top you have on, and depending on the type of lingerie you have going on behind the scenes. The right kind of cleavage can flatter your body to new heights and have people going to new lengths just to catch a peek of you.

V for Vivacious

V-shaped cleavage cuts a striking look on any woman. A neckline that dips below your collar bone and exposes your upper chest can be a great way to show off some skin in a way that keeps things neat. Nothing is more tragic than trying to pull of a sexy v-shaped cleavage look while having visible bra padding. You need a bra that can handle the curves and offer discreet support. This is why it is important to have a type of bra on hand, such as a deep cleavage bra, to give you support without giving you away.

A Look With a Long Shelf Life

Shelf cleavage is perky, high-to-the-chin cleavage which simply cannot be ignored. This is achieved by a scoop neck or square neck tank top or tee shirt. The trick to pulling off this look of being “pulled up” is to have an ultra-supportive push up bra in place. Shelf cleavage creates a compressed look which places your two breasts together for ultimate impact. However, women trying to achieve shelf cleavage should always be on guard for the dreaded “uni boob.” A “uni boob” is cleavage pressed so tightly together that the cleave looses its shape and becomes one singular and indistinguishable, boob instead of two individual curvaceous breasts.cleavage types

Side cleavage

Side cleavage, commonly referred to as “side boob”, is the hottest trend to hit the red carpet. Stars like Gwyneth Paltrow have showed up in racy numbers which have redefined the way the world views cleavage. The trick to side boob is to not reveal too much, and to never let on that you are letting your side cleavage peek out on purpose. The look is achieved by selecting a dress or formal top which has long, strategically-placed slits below the arm pit line which allows for some extra skin to show.
