Tops That Minimize a Large Chest

Today’s post is all about finding tops that minimize a large chest. I don’t know why, but a clothing item that can be a challenge for me to find is a good top or blouse. I have a full bust, so I never want to accentuate my chest. I don’t like the “top heavy” look, so I’m always searching for items that minimize my top half.

The blouse I’m wearing in these pictures is an older wrap top that I found years ago at Urban Outfitters. Although it’s kind of loose fitting, the style of it gives the appearance of a smaller chest because the neckline is a V-neck. For women with large bust, wearing a blouse with a lower neckline helps to break up the wideness of the chest. A V-neck is also beneficial for those, who like me, are short waisted. The V-neck will draw the eye in a vertical direction, counterbalancing the short length of my waist.

Other types of tops I think are good for minimizing a large chest besides V-necks and wrap tops are tops with ruching, vertical stripes and blazers and cardigans (unbuttoned). Below are a few blouses and tops that are not only stylish, but will give the appearance of a smaller bust.
