Control your curves. Play them up or play them down and highlight your midsection. It should be your focal point. Elongate your frame by minimizing your curves.

Colors (Clear cool/Winter)
Tailored shirts or blazers (especially those made for larger busted women)
Form fitted tops with darts
Cinched, banded or belted blouses
V-necks and open necklines
Three quarter length sleeves
Lower cut armholes- diagonal cut sleeves and flutter sleeves
Leave tops untucked to lengthen torso
Avoid: Loose blouses that billow or flare from the bustling. Trapeze tops which add bulk.
To maximize your bustline:
Bright and light tops, horizontal stripes and prints, ruffled and pleated blouses, details at the bust, boat, crew and high necklines and asymmetrical tops.
Keep it classy. Your voluptuous figure offers enough sex appeal.
Slim fit bootleg cuts
Wide leg pants that balance out your top half (wear with heels to keep it streamlined)
Pant creases lengthen
Avoid: short shorts. Mid calf length pants make legs look thicker.
Hemlines just above to just below the knee are flattering
Avoid: shorter hemlines and gathered raised or pleated skirts which add volume.
Fit and flare styles including A-line
Sheath and tailored cuts
Anything that highlights your waist
Color blocking with light or bright colors at your waist and darker colors overall
Well tailored options
Empire waist also lengthens your torso
Avoid: Drop waist and shapeless shifts which create a boxy look. Especially low cut dresses with a shorter skirt. Baggy options.
Tailored blazers that button under the bustline
To minimize the bustline:
Solid jackets in neutral or deep colors
Vertical or diagonal stripes or details
Wrap styles and tailored jackets with darts
Deep shawl collars
Avoid: Baggy, untailored jackets
As long as you are maintaining balance with your top half, you can wear most shoes
You can pull off heavier or rounder shoes as they visually balance a fuller bust
If you are wearing an over the knee boot, aim for them to reach the thinnest part of the thigh
Calf high boots that are angled at the top are elongating
Belts are your best friends. Cinch them around the hips to lengthen your torso or at your waist to show off your midsection.
Anything that highlights your midsection: contrasting skinny belts, bold wide belts, scarf at the waist
Long necklaces and scarves
When your shoes are the same color as your pants and/or hosiery/ skirt- you elongate your frame
Avoid: Accessories that throw off your natural balance. If wearing a bulky scarf, wear attention getting shoes. Delicate jewelry maximizes the bustline.
