    Before anything, I would like to define busty petite terms for those unsure what it means.
     
    “Busty” stands for women with large breasts and usually wear a B cup bra size, whereas “petite” means any woman who is 5’2 ft in height or under it.
     
    As petite women, we know that shopping for our body shape and finding ways to style it is challenging, but what about women who have small busty figures? 
     
    The truth is that it is even harder to find clothes and ways to style their body shape but don’t worry, I got you covered here!
      

     
    There are few essential factors to consider when looking for clothes and style the busty petite body type.

    If you consider those factors and apply them when you shop for clothes and how to style them, you will find it way easier for you to style your clothes and have a more enjoyable shopping experience, whether online or at the store.

    5 factors to consider before shopping for your busty petite body shape

    1. Choose the perfect bra size

    Why choosing a bra is essential? Well, it is the undergarment clothes that will shape your breasts so that whatever layer you wear over it will give it the same shape.
     
    That’s how important it is because wearing a smaller bra than your breast size will cause extra skin to pop out from everywhere, and that will not only appear when you wear anything over it but also feel uncomfortable.
     
    Also, wearing a bigger bra size will make you look bustier and fuller from your upper part.
     
    Therefore, it is crucial to choose a well-fit, comfortable bra that perfectly lifts and supports your breasts.

    How to choose the right bra for your large bust?

    • Choose a bra that is a wide fabric strap from the back; the wider, the better, to give you the maximum support for your whole bust area.
    • Go for thick and firm fabrics because they will add more support to your breast. 

    If you want lace and other thinner fabric that is sexy and you might want to wear on any occasion, don’t worry!  There are lace and other thick materials, and you can wear them.

    • You find many cup types when shopping for a bra, such as a half-cup, padded, push up, etc. The perfect cup for your large bust is the full cup type because it will cover your whole breast to make you more comfortable moving around the entire day.
    • Underwire bra is the perfect choice because the sewn wire in the bra will give support and separate and shape the breasts.

    What kind of bra that busty petite should avoid?

    In my opinion, a Strapless bra will never give you the best support unless you attached a transparent strap to it.

    2. Know your body shape

    Understanding your body shape is the first step to do whenever you shop or dress.
    There are five body types and if you are not sure what shape you are, get your freebie below.



    After figuring your petite body shape, you have to consider that you have a large bust, which means your body’s proportions are more balanced than those with regular bust size.
     
    If you are thin and have a large bust, you will look more fuller from your upper part, whereas if you have fuller hips and thighs, your body proportions will be more balanced, but you will look heavier and fuller.
     
    When you are dressing for your busty petite body shape, don’t just pick styles that work for your body shape but also ask yourself, do you want to show some cleavage or part of your breast or not?
     
    It is a matter of preference because many women want to hide it and tend to have a modest style while others want to embrace it!
     
    So I will lay out here some tips and style ideas for women who want to hide or show some cleavage in their style.

    Always go for light, flowy fabrics, especially for your upper part, so they will not add volume to your body.

    Also, choose drape styles, whether tops or dresses, because they are flattering and will not disproportionate your body shape.
