Blazers for the Busty

 

I wasn’t expecting to write a blog post on “Blazers for the Busty” and yet here we are. Normally when I think of wearing blazers I can’t help but feel a little uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s because I’m a little more on the busty side and I’ve never had much luck when it comes to finding blazers that want to cooperate with my bosom. For the busty ladies out there who dread wearing blazers: fear not, for I have found a stylish solution!

When it comes to blazers, I never seem to have much trouble in the fit of the jacket itself. My main problem area arises when I try to button the blazer and all of a sudden the whole outfit looks ridiculously small and feels more like a straight jacket than casual business attire. After many failed attempts to find a blazer that ticks all the boxes, I eventually just learned to steer clear of it all.

Now that I have a job, however, I’ve been on a serious hunt for new pieces to add to my semi-professional wardrobe: blazers, trousers, comfy-yet-classy shoes. As I prowled the racks at Forever21 for a blazer that didn’t appear to be trying too hard to make the cut, I was immediately drawn to one with 3/4 length sleeves. From the perfect sleeve length to the unique collar, I was hooked. It even flattered my busty figure, too!

Fast-forward to earlier this week where I was on the prowl yet again. This time, the blazer found me. I had almost completely lost all hope of ever finding anything that would work with my figure at Target, when I saw this beauty. This one was longer than I thought I would like, but the super casual collar paired with the rolled up cuffs absolutely sold me. When I tried it on I noticed that the lines were incredibly slimming, and the blazer accentuated everything effortlessly.

My Advice on Blazers for the Busty

  1. Go Buttonless! – When buttoned up, traditional blazers can look like they don’t fit well. Even if the blazer fits perfectly on the arms, it can be a real let-down to discover that the blazer isn’t bosom-friendly. I’d recommend looking for blazers without buttons! Besides, who even bothers buttoning them up anyway?
  2. Be Open-Minded – Try not to set your heart on any one particular style of blazer. Open-mindedness makes it easier to find the uncommon pieces that often get overlooked. You’ll never know if something works until you try it for yourself!
  3. Never Give Up – I truly believe that there is a blazer out there for everyone. All it takes is a little bit of searching, and if you really want a blazer, then, by golly, you will find one.

That’s all I have to say on the subject of blazers for the busty, so now I’ll leave you with a couple of selfies where I’m sporting my two favorite blazers. If you want to keep up with my selfie game, follow me on Instagram! Until next time…

Cheers!
