Everyone has insecurities, and some people wish they had more going on on top. Whether you want to fill out a special dress, even out your bustline, or generally just look like you have bigger boobs, you have options. Even if you're naturally small-chested, there are plenty of tricks you can use to make your breasts look bigger. You can follow my tips below to show off a more shapely silhouette.
Tip 1: Draw Attention to Your Breasts
If you want to make your chest look larger, I recommend wearing a top or dress that accents your bustline. Ruffles, texture, high-contrast beading, horizontal stripes, curved seaming and cleverly shaped cups can make your breasts look bigger. By contrast, your breasts may look smaller in a baggy, plain, or dark, high-necked top.
Tip 2: Practice Good Posture
To perk up your breasts, practice good posture. Slouching can make your breasts look concave and saggy, so stand tall and open up your chest. Keep your chin up and your spine straight, and pull your shoulders back when you sit or walk. Your chest will rise naturally, and you'll show off your figure to its best advantage. For extra support, I think it's best to wear a posture bra that enhances your bustline.
Tip 3: Add a Necklace
Adding a necklace can draw attention to a beautiful bust and create a fuller look. A necklace that sits above the neckline of a cleavage-baring top will enhance your assets, and a pendant that rests right between your breasts will help them look ample when you cover up.
Tip 4: Clip Your Bra Straps
If you want to boost your cleavage without changing your bra, clip the straps together at your shoulder blades to create a racerback effect. This fast, inexpensive trick lifts your breasts and pulls them together, creating fullness and definition. Use a bra clip or a pin with a strong, secure clasp to hold the straps together, or create a similar effect by arranging convertible straps to cross at the center of your back.
Tip 5: Contour Your Breasts
You may be familiar with contouring your face, but have you ever considered contouring your breasts? This simple technique can make your chest look much larger when you're wearing a low-cut dress or top. Using dark and light makeup, you can create shadows and highlights that will create the illusion of bigger boobs. Outline your collarbones and the tops of your breasts with a dark bronzer, then use a pale contour cream to highlight the tops of your breasts where they begin to swell outward. Blend out the makeup and use a setting powder to finish the look.
Tip 6: Try a Breast-enhancing Cream
When you want to indulge in a bit of self-care while paying special attention to your breasts, try a breast-enhancing cream. These products are formulated to make your boobs look bigger by plumping, firming, and toning your skin. Many creams will work to tighten your skin for a lifting effect. For a safe and natural result, check the labels, do your homework and use natural, hormone-free creams. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and avocado oil can moisturize your skin, increase elasticity, and support collagen production, while herbal extracts can promote fullness and increased breast volume. Pamper your skin, put on a beautiful bra, and show off your breasts at their curvy best!
Tip 7: Wear a Push-up Bra
A push-up bra is a classic foundation choice that will shape, support and add volume to your breasts. Leonisa's best push-up bras feature specially designed underwires and padding that will define and push up your cleavage. Picking out a quality bra in the right size is key to creating a sculpted, feminine and lifted look, and it's a nearly foolproof way to boost your natural silhouette.
Tip 8: Wear a Padded Bra
When you want to add volume without a lot of fuss, a padded bra is just what you need to provide gentle lift, support and definition while offering full coverage. A well-structured bra with thick padding can make your breasts look a cup size bigger.
Tip 9: Tape Your Breasts
Adhesive breast lift tape is a celebrity favorite anyone can use to lift their breasts under a low-cut or backless top or dress. To use the tape, cup and push your breasts into position and place the tape under each breast. Then stretch the tape up over the side of each breast and press down to hold them in place.
Tip 10: Use Push-up Pads
Did you know that you can use removable push-up pads in your favorite unpadded bra? Just remove them from a push-up bra you own or buy replacement bra pads and place them in the bottom of the cups to fill out your breasts. If you have uneven breasts, padding one cup is a great way to create a symmetrical look.
Tip 11: Use Gel Inserts
Gel inserts are a natural-looking alternative to foam padding. Gel inserts use water or silicone to add volume and fullness to your natural shape. When you slip these enhancers inside your bra, they take on the shape of your breasts, add fullness and create a plump and perky silhouette. Place the inserts near the outside of your cups to create cleavage, or put them right above the bottom of your underwire to push your breasts up.
Tip 12: Cinch Your Waist
The smaller your waist looks, the larger your chest will seem in comparison. Add a waist cincher or belt to your outfit to define your torso and create a V-shape that helps your breasts look full and feminine best. When you wear a V-neck, scoop-neck or lingerie-style top, all eyes will naturally be drawn to your ample bosom.
Tip 13: Wear Tight-fitting Clothes
One of the easiest ways to make your boobs look bigger is to dress them up in tight-fitting, body-con dresses, tops and jumpsuits. You'll want to be sure to pick fabrics that hug, cling or stretch over your breasts without flattening them out. You can also achieve this effect by pulling the fabric tight over your chest and securing it at the waist or back. Wearing tight-fitting clothes will make your breasts stand out and look naturally bigger.
Tip 14: Wear a Corset Top
Wearing a corset top is the perfect way to play the femme fatale while showing off your figure. Many corset tops have boning that defines your waist and enhances your bust. An underwire foundation should lift and support your breasts while adding extra curves. Some corset tops will include padding inside the bra cups, and wide-set straps can provide the perfect frame for big, beautiful breasts.
Tip 15: Choose a Sweetheart Neckline
A lovely sweetheart neckline will enhance your bust and create fullness and the illusion of size by following your curves. This romantic neckline gives your torso a subtle heart-shaped outline while showing off your decolletage. I would choose to wear a push-up or balconette bra underneath for extra oomph.
Tip 16: Wear a Plunge Bra
Plunge bras are low-cut bras for women that look great with V-neck tops. Like a good push-up bra, they are typically padded to create fullness and enhance your cleavage. When you want to show off full breasts under a revealing dress, a plunge bra can create the perfect look.
Tip 17: Exercise
If you want to perk up your chest naturally while improving your health and posture, chest exercises are a perfect choice. Adding bench presses and pushups to your gym routine is a great way to shape up the muscles that help support your breasts. Toned pectorals can lift your breasts and make them look bigger, so be sure to add them to your workout.
Tip 18: Wear a Balconette Bra
Balconette bras lift your breasts to create a full, feminine look. Their lower cut exposes enough skin to make small breasts look bigger, but these types of bras can also work for larger breasts. The right balconette bra can fully support your breasts while creating visible cleavage, while wide-set straps and extra padding can make your breasts look rounder.
