Breasts have been out of style for awhile now. They went out when the waif heroin chic look entered and 12-year old Ukrainian models became all the rage. Alas, with everything else in fashion the presence of body parts is cyclical and breasts (boobs, hooters, knockers, sweater puppies) are getting their day in the spotlight.
The Christina Hendricks Complex
The heated advocacy for more diverse figures on the runway and in advertising is what I’m aptly calling “The Christina Hendricks Complex.” Mad Men ushered in a new era (or just a rehashed era, but who’s keeping score) of 60s silhouettes with heavy emphasis on full bosoms, nipped-in waists and full hips. Marilyn Monroe would be so proud. Victoria Secret has a bra that amplifies your chest two sizes and after seasons of designing for smaller stature women, designers are coming on the runway to proclaim the era of the Bust Lust. The hills are alive with the mounds of music.
Women everywhere are reclaiming their “right to a lil cleav” and I know what you’re thinking. But bust lust isn’t a hippie revival, let it all hang type of thing. It’s about celebrating the GOD given assets that have been bestowed upon you.
Wowzers! Salma, Scarlett, Kim and Christina all proudly showcase their womanly assets. There is a fine line between giving ample cleave in a fitted gown and wearing say a string bikini with double Gs. No shade Coco T, no shade.
5 Ways to Maximize your Mounds
Without making this sound like a Cosmo article here are some tips on working the tits trend
- Bras make all the difference: Good support means everything. There’s nothing worse than the double boob effect of a too small bra. Having the proper foundation pieces will make sure that when your girls are spilling over they won’t be spilling out.
- Chicken Cutlets anyone: Everyone isn’t born with a built in shelf. For my smaller chested ladies, pushup bras and the beloved chicken cutlet inserts will be your best friends.
- Save the A for another day: If you’re going to show a little T, there’s no need for the A. Pick one body part and stick with it.
- Retro Please: 1950s and 60s celebrated a woman’s figure and wiggle dresses have an emphasis on small waists, big breast and wide hips.
- Flaunt em and Forget em: Taking the twins out on the town can be a bit distracting but don’t let it worry you. Be confident, flaunt them and act like you’re wearing a nun’s habit. If you give them too much attention, so will everyone else.
Dress Them Puppies Up
Curves shouldn’t be a passing fad. If you have a voluptuous figure don’t be afraid to flaunt it. Pinup Girl Clothing has the works when it comes to boob flaunting styles from their Doris Top to their Retro dresses.
