10 Killer Outfits Flat-Chested Women Wear Better Than Busty Ladies

Itty Bitty Titty Committee FTW.

Like most girls do at least once in their life, I used to stuff my bra with tissues, desperately hoping to fake some boobage. Only thing is, most girls do this when they’re 12 and I was doing this when I was 18 and going to frat parties.

Much to my dismay, my boobs stopped growing when I was 14. (Actually, I’d argue they never really started in the first place.) I bought every Victoria’s Secret “miracle bra” on the market and wasted hours on YouTube learning to contour my nonexistent cleavage, but there came a point when I realized I should just embrace my mosquito bites.

Now that I live with this mindset, I genuinely feel more confident. It’s sorta like saying, “hey world, I know I don’t have boobs, but watch me still look fabulous.” Through trial and error, I’ve learned the right way to dress for a small bust, and to do just that, you’ve gotta break the rules a little bit.

1. Go braless

A lot of girls feel nervous going braless, either for comfort reasons or because they’re afraid to show the world their nipples. To those girls I say, you’re missing out on an amazing opportunity to feel subtle and sexy. Not that anyone should dress to please men, but my male sources say they go crazy for the braless look.

From casual errand runs to nights out in a low cut shirt, all you need is some fashion tape and you’re on your way to Kendall Jenner flawlessness.

2. Wear high-waisted clothes to draw attention to your figure

Try wearing high-waisted pants or skirts to draw attention to your assets. And I’m not just talking about your butt: you can also draw attention to your legs, arms, etc.

Pairing a statement necklace with a v-neck draws attention to your entire outfit for a helluva polished look.

3. Crop tops, crop tops, and…did I mention crop tops?

I own at least fifteen crop tops. I wear them on the weekends, at work and when I’m chilling in bed with leftover Chinese food. Not only are they the comfiest things in the world (I mean, they’re basically bras), but they instantly give personality to any outfit. You can also take pride in knowing busty girls can’t pull off a crop top like a small-chested lady.

For a daytime look, pair a crop top with high-waisted pants and throw a long sweater or jacket over it. For nighttime, feel free to get crazy. I’ve done everything from leather skirts to short shorts. The world is your oyster crop top.

Just take a page from Ariana Grande’s book, who’s crop top game is always on point.

4. Flash your bra(lette)

Showing a tasteful flash of your bra is HOT. See: Gwen Stefani. She layers a bedazzled, V-neck blazer over a black bralette and it looks so chic. For a going out look, try pairing a lacy bra with a blazer — or any deep V-neck top — and polish with layered necklaces.

Here’s Karrueche Tran slaying the bralette look, too.

5. Aim for a high neck

Anything that has a high-neckline actually enhances breast size because it sort of tricks the eye into thinking there’s more there. Karrueche’s jumpsuit looks fab on her because of the way it gathers around her waist and cinches her figure.

For the best of both worlds, try a high-neck crop top like Perrie Edwards.

6. Go backless

With backless tops, you get to show a whole lot of skin in a totally unexpected way. Business in the front, party in the back — no bra needed.

7. Wear stripes

Horizontal stripes are notorious for making you look, um, wider — that’s why experts don’t recommend striped skirts. But for flat-chested women, they’ll make your bust look bigger in an instant.

Try wearing an off-the-shoulder striped top. It’ll accentuate your chest while drawing attention to the neckline as well.

8. Stock up on V-necks

Some experts say V-necks only work if you have the boobs to fill them out. Sorry ‘bout it, but they’re wrong. Just because you don’t have so-called boobs to show off, it doesn’t mean you can’t rock a trend. I say go for it.

If you’re feeling self-conscious about having nothing there, throw on a cute bralette or crop top underneath to create a dynamic look.

9. Go halter

Not only is this halter bikini THE COOLEST THING EVER, but the cutouts also leave something to the imagination. Same goes for halter tops and dresses — they accentuate your body while maintaining some mystery.

10. Work that sideboob

Showing sideboob is the new front cleavage, whether you’re an A-cup or a DD. Wearing a high-neck dress like Kendall’s that slants inward allows room for your boobs to fall naturally, while showing a glimpse of your breast. You can pull this look off with tight dresses, slouchy tank tops, etc. and use fashion tape to avoid pulling a Janet Jackson.

EMBRACE IT, LADIES.
