The Perfect Fit for a Full Bust
In my work as an image consultant there are many dilemmas that I hear about over and over. It's my job to help clients come up with a strategy for dressing that fits and flatters their assets and this can sometimes pose a challenge. One of the most common dilemmas is 'what to wear if you have a large bust.' If you fit into this category you know all too well how many of the tops out in stores right now are cut more like maternity tops, with shirring and fullness around the bust (a great big NO-NO) and even a tie in back. Well, guess what happens when a fuller-busted gal puts one of these on - her bust is not flattered but rather amplified, and not in a good way. Plus, the fabric drapes straight from her bust to blouse out over hips and tummy to make her look, er, pregnant. The only time this look is acceptable is when she is actually expecting and well into her second trimester.
Thank goodness that designers such as Carissa Rose get what full-busted women really need - a good fit not only through the bust , but the waist too. Her shirts and dresses are sculpted to accentuate your figure and give it shape. Inspired by her well-endowed mother, Carrisa was inspired to create a line of clothing that was structured and streamlined, celebrating the female form and show off a woman's shape. Her Emma Shirt ($105) is a great wardrobe staple that will fit into just about any large busted woman's closet and help expand her clothing possibilities. Carissa’s philosophy is to "create wearable, positive styles that incorporate the best aspects of classic American sportswear." Carissa Rose empowers the "hard-to-fit, endowed woman with comfort and confidence to live each day to the fullest (pun intended)." Now that's refreshing!
