4 tips for minimizing a large bust

Here at Christopher Craft Cosmetic Surgery, we have helped hundreds of women achieve the bodies of their dreams. While many women come to us seeking breast enlargement surgery, others want to minimize the size of their breasts. If you are interested in having a breast reduction or breast lift in Miami, be sure to find a reputable, experienced and board certified plastic surgeon like Christopher Craft, M.D. In the meantime, you can create the illusion of a smaller bust by following these sartorial tips: 

  • Color block strategically: Remember that darker colors conceal while lighter colors attract attention, so avoid wearing very bright or pale shades on your upper half.
  • Get fitted: Go to a high-end lingerie store and have a professional bra-fitting. 
  • Make use of camisoles: To conceal your décolletage, wear a camisole under your button-down shirts and wrap dresses. 
  • "V" for victory: If you're very chesty, your first instinct may be to keep everything fully buttoned up to avoid showing too much cleavage. However, celebrity stylist Philip Bloch, who has dressed stars like Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock, advises you to fight that urge. "You need to leave the neckline open — create a V, an upside-down triangle, so you pull the eye down toward a narrower place," Bloch told Health.com. "A vest over a shirt is nice. If you wear just a shirt or blouse, open the buttons and wear a tank top underneath. Overall, it helps to create a sleek, column-like effect." 

While it's always good to know how to dress to flatter your figure, to really transform your body you'll need more than just an afternoon of shopping. Call Christopher Craft Cosmetic Surgery to schedule an initial consultation.
