A FASHION fan shared the clothing styles that suit her as a medium sized woman with a full bust and mummy bump.
Samantha Pamela filmed herself trying on new clothes at H&M this month, exploring what – and what didn’t – flatter her figure.
First, Samantha put together a highlight roll of all the clothes she tried on that didn’t make her look her best.
There were several pieces with seams defining the chest area, which wasn’t enough.
“If you’re full boobs, it’s really problematic because it kind of cuts off your boobs,” she explained.
Nor was she impressed by the look of satin dresses, which she said clung to her stomach.
A hot pink slip, in particular, “floods over my body, but at the same time kind of clings to it.”
“It shows all my bumps and bumps, it doesn’t give me any shape and it clings to the side of my hips,” she said.
A more undercover option that didn’t work for her was a blue sleeveless buttoned dress with a matching center tie.
“Although it’s fitted at the waist, the high neckline and places where it cuts off the sleeves make me look too top-heavy. It just covers me up too much and doesn’t give me shape,” she said.
But all hope was not lost for this dress: Samantha said that undoing a few buttons at the top gave her more length in the bust area and made the dress more flattering.
A pair of acid-wash denim shorts was also on Samantha’s don’t list, mostly because of the cut.
“Never buy buttoned shorts or buttoned jeans, even if they fit. It just emphasizes the stomach area too much,” she said.
She said racerback tops are also bad for full-busted women because the armholes cut in too much and show too much of her bra, while a boxy button-down shirt isn’t her best choice.
“What this does is cut off my waist, but you can’t see my waist, so it gives me a very odd shape. Kind of no shape,” she said.
Also on the scrap heap were a t-shirt dress that “doesn’t do anything for my figure” and a pair of high-waisted shorts with chunky ties.
Because the tape ends where her stomach begins, Samantha said, “It draws attention to my stomach in certain lighting conditions.”
The next day, Samantha shared a follow-up video of looks that worked for her.
The first flattering finds were a pair of tailored cream trousers with a crop top.
She also liked a matching crop top and maxi skirt in a “really flattering” bold print.
“I love that the skirt slides down my body but is fitted at the waist,” she said.
She liked another pair of stretchy, tailored white pants, which she wore with both a tucked-in oversized V-neck top and a scoop-neck top.
“A scoop neckline that you can’t go wrong with if you have a fuller bust,” she said, also noting that a V-neckline is always flattering for a large bust.
She also described wide-leg jeans as “great for my type of shape” and a pair of mid-rise denim shorts with a fitted top as “super flattering for anyone with a stomach and thighs.”
