Flat Combat: 7 Ways To Make Your Bosom Look Bigger
Have you found yourself wondering how to make your boobs look bigger lately? These days is seems like everywhere you turn, you’re confronted by images of overflowing décolletage. Even at the grocery store checkout, there’s Kim Kardashian pushing baby North wearing a barely buttoned blazer and…nothing else. Settle in for an evening of family viewing and the impossibly proportioned Sofia Vergara is busting out of the TV. In your face cleavage is so ubiquitous that the Oxford English Dictionary made the phrase side boob official in August.
But do not despair, you may create the illusion of bigger “boobs” with these simple tips:
Push Up Bra
This one’s a no-brainer. There’s nothing like a great push-up bra for an instant lift and luscious décolletage. The Victoria’s Secret Bombshell collection claims to add two cup sizes.
Most of us are familiar with the magic of face contouring. Just as you can create sculpted cheekbones and an aquiline nose with the help of well-placed bronzer and highlighter, you can also create the illusion of fabulous cleavage in a snap.
Better than Socks
There are a variety of natural looking bra inserts to amp up your assets without surgery. Commando takeouts ($48), made of medical grade silicone, add a full cup size and advertise that they’re “grope tested”.
Posture is key for how to make your boobs look bigger. Perkiness beats size any day and slouchy posture leads to saggy looking breasts no matter how great your figure is.
In the past 20 years, the average American woman’s bra size has increased from 34B to 34DD. A spokesperson for Intimacy—the lingerie retailer who conducted the survey—says this doesn’t necessarily mean women’s boobs have changed that much but that they’re more educated about bra fitting. It’s well worth a visit to a lingerie shop near you for a professional fitting—you may increase a cup size or two without doing a thing!
One of the advantages of an understated bosom is that you can wear a plunging neckline and still keep it tasteful. Choose necklines with ruffles or sparkly embellishments and silhouettes that cinch in your waist to highlight your assets.
If you have the budget and motivation, the Brava Breast Enhancement & Shaping System is a pump that you wear overnight to expand your breast tissue. You need to purchase it through a doctor so you can determine whether it’s safe for you and how to best use it. There is research to back up their claims that you can go up 1/2 to two cup sizes over time.
