shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.


t-shirt bra
I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

How to Find Tops That Fit

Top Heavy body typetop heavy body type

Top Heavy Body Type: also known as the inverted triangle, V frame and apple.

This is where the breasts and/or shoulders are clearly the largest part of your body. This body type usually has small hips and thighs.

Women with this body type mainly gain weight on their abdomen, chest and face.

The goal is to minimize your top half
and accentuate your bottom half creating symmetry.

Everything is built  on a good Foundation.

What to wear? Before I get into what to wear I can’t stress enough to get fitted for a good bra

That means go to a place that is reputable. I admit that because I previously worked for them I am partial to them.

Their training is excellent and the selections of bras are extensive (most of it is in the back). Don’t be shy, to choose someone who you are comfortable with and who has experience.  A good foundation will make a huge difference in what clothing you will eventually choose.

O.K. on to what to wear:

The most flattering clothes for top-heavy women are to wear soft clean lines and minimal details on chest and shoulders while having some detail on the bottom half. In other words create symmetry by giving the illusion you have larger hips or a smaller top.

Choosing Tops Shirts and Blouses

for the top heavy body type

For your tops choose simple and plain, look for v-neck or scoop neck lines. This will be easy if you looking for a looser fit blouses and shirts. For shirts keep in mind they can be a godsend if they’re sparse but awful if they have a lot of detail on them. Look for ones with no pockets over the breasts and stay with simple collars.

Choose either small and subtle prints or solid colors. Just remember nothing tight on the top unless of course you want to accentuate your bust line. A shirt or blouse should close without pulling. One of the biggest challenges of this body type is finding tops that fit.

How to find a shirt that’s fits: Shirts: First thing to know is you must concentrate on fitting the largest part, shoulders or breast. If you do, you will probably find, the only shirts with lots of stretch will work, and sometimes not even then. Why, because by the time you find a shirt that will accommodate your breasts or shoulders its too big at the waist and the sleeves are too long.

To fix this issue look in the men’s department. Men’s shirts go by neck and sleeve length. Look for a shirt with the right sleeve length that says “Athletic fit”. These shirts usually have lycra in them. Then find a size that will accommodate your breasts or and you shoulders. The one that works best, have darts put in for a nominal fee.

Blouses are also a challenge for the same reason, but the nice thing about blouses is they come in a lot more styles, so you can probably find one that has some blouson action going on. Think chemise or tent style that will help you in your quest. Spring and summer is a good time to find looser fitting tops.
Top Heavy Body Type
To tuck or not to tuck, that is the question one must ask one’s self.

Tucking in your tops come and go as trends change. So the big question is, what looks good on you and what are your personal preferences. A few questions to consider are… do you have a small waist and will tucking give you the symmetry that you’re looking for.

Tucking can definitely show off a tiny waist but if you don’t have a tiny waist consider choosing a top that is styled to taper in at the waist and yet give you room to breath.

Cardigans are also good choices for top heavy women. Again, choose a simple style on your shoulders and chest area but some detail at the base like an interesting hemline even an asymmetrical hem as well as some pockets will all work.
