This month, Glamour Magazine picks swim suits for a variety of body types, one of those being “petite and busty”. The model, Rachel, who is 5’2″ with a 32DD bust, looks great after Glamour stylists got their hands on her!
Shop for bottoms with higher-cut legs – this appears to have lengthened Rachel’s leg line, for a flattering, leggy silhouette, which is advice petites of all sizes can gain from. They also switched out her tie-side bottoms for something with a little more fabric, which I’m a big fan of. Those tie-side bottoms do weird things visually to a lot of women’s figures. I was appalled when I tried on an old (from college days) tie-side bikini of mine not too long ago. It’s much more flattering boy-short bottoms for me from now on!
Shop for underwire tops with cup sizes – this did amazing things for Rachel’s bust! The underwire top lifted and supported, helping her look polished and even a little bit thinner. Being busty often makes a woman look heavier than she really is (a well-endowed family member of mine has this issue), so reining in the “girls” helps to show off her lean figure.
Successful makeover, Glamour! Of course, the styled hair and sexy pose helps too. ;)
