Everyone loves a good jumper—but finding the right fit can be challenging, especially if you have a big bust. Here, I’m sharing some handy tips and tricks for how to style a jumper if you have big boobs and my edit of the bust jumpers available right now.
It can be hard to find stylish knitwear that doesn’t feel restrictive or bulky, but now that the cold weather has arrived, it’s important to keep warm. A jumper is a must in winter, so what should you look for when shopping for a knit?
Opt for fitted jumpers
Choosing a loose-fitting jumper is an obvious choice, but going oversized can hide your figure. A fitted option might be a better option, as they hug your curves nicely and emphasise your silhouette without looking bulky.
Try a high neck
High neck sweaters work really well for you as they elongate your figure and compliment your shape. This rule also works for tops; roll necks always look great on you.
V-Necks are your friend
Similarly V-necks work really well for big busts as they too elongate your figure, creating a streamlined silhouette and avoiding too much fabric on your upper half. Cardigans are a great choice too as they usually offer this shape when done up.
Give cropped sweaters a go
Cropped sweaters offer a boxier fit, which gives a completely different look but can work really well for big busts. It takes the attention away from your chest and looks a little bit cooler than V-neck styles.
Being on the bustier side shouldn’t stop you from wearing jumpers, so it’s worth investing in better-quality knits that fit. From ZARA to H&M, we’ve rounded up the best jumpers that work for big busts (and anyone else for that matter).
As always, we encourage you to wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident. Fashion should have no rules, so enjoy wearing what you love. These are just options we love.
