1. Don't be afraid to rock prints.

Jaye Gipson

"I am a 44DDD and I am a big believer in showcasing my girls, not hiding them. Since I like to accentuate, I wear lots of patterns!" —Jaye Gipson of Curvatude

2. Temper the volume by tucking in...

Alissa Wilson

"I personally love to tuck my shirts in, because it helps create a waist and make my outfits look more sleek and polished." —Alissa Wilson of Stylish Curves

4. A good bra is the key to comfort...

Kelly Augustine

"The most important piece of clothing for a large bust is a bra that fits well. Many women don't even realize they're wearing the wrong size, but the proper foundation will lift and separate your bust, literally taking weight off your shoulders." —Kelly Augustine

6. Fit trumps tag size every time...

Steve Suavemente / Via Kristine Thompson

"Styling outfits when you have a large bust is all about finding the right fit. For button-up shirts in particular, you have to disregard the number on the tag and choose the garment that is best suited for your cup size." —Kristine Thompson of Trendy Curvy

7. ...and a good tailor can work magic.

"If you fall in love with a piece of clothing but it doesn't come in your size, size up and get it altered. All my bikini tops were bought one size up so that the cups could fit my breasts, and I had the bands altered to fit my back properly." —Gavyn Pickens of The Curvy Cutie

8. So know your measurements...

"Measure yourself, or go to your local tailor to get measured before buying clothing. Embrace every curve, every angle, every aspect of your body, and I promise you, you will SLAY!" —Kiersten Heath of Bite my Heath Bar

9. ...and buy your favorite pieces while you can.

Holly Jackson

"Experiment to find the clothing styles and shapes you like best on your body. Once you do, invest in high-quality versions of those that you can wear for years. Even if they cost a little more, you'll save money over time and have a wardrobe you'll never get tired of." —Holly Jackson of The Full Figured Chest

10. You have a few great allies in this world, including cardigans...

"Fashion is about finding what looks you like and feeling comfortable. I like to have fun with trends, which sometimes include daring necklines, and I find that adding a cardigan can make them feel more conservative and workable for different events." —Heidi of Curves in a Cardigan

11. ...safety pins...

Amanda Crichton

"I avoided button-up shirts for YEARS because of the dreaded button gap. I recently started using safety pins, double-sided tape, and/or a wee sewing kit to make sure everything stays where it’s meant to be. I’ve been enjoying a gap-free button-up life ever since!" —Amanda Crichton of Amanda Apparel

12. ...and belts.

Caroline of Curvy Wordy

"It can be hard to find dresses that fit your bust and your waist, but belts are a simple solution. When buying a dress, first make sure it fits your chest; then, if the waist is roomy, you can usually fix it with a belt." —Caroline of Curvy Wordy

13. But you know what? Going belt-free is awesome too.

Sarah Chiwaya

"Don't be afraid of 'adding bulk.' We're are always told to 'cinch your waist,' but that can lead to women writing off styles they love. Once I started pushing back on the 'cinching' idea, I had a lot more fun with fashion and put together some of my favorite outfits. This look doesn't highlight my figure, but that's fine with me; I don't owe anyone my waist." —Sarah Chiwaya of Curvily

14. Finally, if all else fails, know you can always count on a wrap dress.

Cindy Pineda

"Between their v-shaped neckline and the way they hug my curves, wrap dresses are one of my favorite things! They're such a great wardrobe staple for busty women." —Cindy Pineda of Cid's Closet
