Dressing the “Bust”

Dressing the “Bust”

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are having a great week. Today’s blog post is kind of funny! If you see by my title, LOL! You’ve heard the term ” Dressing the bump” Well this Mama has to dress the Bust! I’ve had a bigger bust since elementary school. I haven’t been the happiest with them either. I was always very self-conscious about my bigger bust. I remember in elementary this kid started a rumor that I stuffed my bra. I’m like really. Well that was fun. I think the only time I opened my arms to my bigger bust was in high school, LOL! They were perky and cute. Well fast forward to having kids and breastfeeding both my sons. I breastfed my second till he was 2 1/2! So these Bust have been through some tough times,LOL!

Today I wanted to share some tips on what I look for when buying clothes to flatter my figure. As women I think we are so hard on our bodies. I’ve gotten a lot better on loving my body and just excepting what I was given. To be honest starting my Blog was scary because I’m not a skinny young girl anymore. I’ve had 2 kids, I’m hitting close to 40, Our bodies change as we get older. I really try to keep active. If it’s running errands, doing house work or getting in a nice workout. It’s important to me at my age to do some kind of daily activity.

One of the hardest things when I buy clothes is the fact that my Bust are larger than my body frame. So because of that, I appear larger than what I am. I tend to always go toward the baggy top style. My guy always tells me to not buy such big tops. But like I said I’m also a little self-conscious. One thing I’ve tried to do is if the top is a more baggy fit, Just grab a cute belt like I did here. It will accentuate the waist more. So this is Tip #1. I’ve also like the style of a mesh, sheer top with a very nice bra underneath. This is more daring but will also show off just a little without being too much. I’ve linked a really cute affordable sheer top below. That is my Tip #2. Now one of the hardest fashion crisis I have faced with my Big bust is shopping for a dress. Ok so shopping for a dress can’t be a nightmare when you are larger in the Bust area and smaller on the bottom. The dress is never going to fit perfect. I remember in high school, I was lucky my Aunt made my prom dresses. Because it was always a struggle to find a more elegant dress that would fit. This past year I had a wedding to attend and I was already thinking great what can I wear. I ended up finding a really cute affordable dress at Zara. The trick is to find a dress that doesn’t have a zipper in the back. I look for a dress that I can just pull over with no zipper or buttons. I usually can go with a small in a dress like that. Because it is made a bit more relaxed fit. I did link a dress down below that is pretty much the style I would look for. I’m actually going to be ordering this for a baby shower I’m attending. It’s simple but you can make it look casual or dressy! That’s key! Well ladies that is Tip #3. I hope you liked this post. I hope it helps.

We need to love what we have and flaunt it with style! Till next post! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are having a wonderful week. I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve written. I’m barely getting used to the every Wednesday Blog post. Eventually I will go back to twice a week. But for now every Wednesday it will be. I want to try to make those worth your reading! I can’t believe the holidays are coming so fast. It’s crazy! I am getting a little stressed. But will all get through it.

Next week on the blog I’ll be giving a little life update and my monthly blog update. I wanted to do this up into my first year of blogging. It’s important for me to keep all of you updated with my journey. So with that said let’s get into this fun post.

Today I wanted to share these outfits. As you can see my little guy is with me. He’s getting so big, Almost 4 to be exact. As we get into the colder months ahead. And all of us Mom’s know these kids grow like weeds. Every fall/winter we have to buy them new clothes. When I’m getting ready to buy Breaker new clothes. I always buy him very simple pieces to start. Denim jeans, a color denim, some neutral cords. Tees always basic color. Occasionally I’ll buy him some Tees that have a design, Like the one he’s wearing here. But that’s very simple, I try to stay away from too much color. For his pop of color I buy him fun socks. Because it’s cheaper to buy a colored sock, so he can wear with anything. Rather than buying a colorful shirt that he can only wear with certain things. Another staple I like to have for him is a Denim jacket. One day I’ll take a pic of all his denim jackets from the first to recent. It’s just a must for me to have for him. They look so cute on and make any outfit look cool. One of my favorite things to put on him are joggers a cute Tee and his denim jacket. I know sometimes we think girl clothes can be more fun, And yes they have more options. But I have found ways to make dressing boys pretty fun. It’s ok to be bold with socks and show them off. If your Son likes to wear hats be bold with a cute hat! Shoes are always a fun way to dress up a boy’s outfit as well! And just remember you don’t always have to match so much. I love a funky combo. Something I always keep in mind when dressing my little guy is 3 colors. I like to have at least 3 colors on him. It really makes his outfits fun! Hope this helps out some mommies with boys!! Or even some of you ladies that want to give your big guy some styling tips,LOL! It works for all! Hope you lovelies have a great rest of the week and a fabulous weekend!
