Every woman wants what she hasn't got. For example, many women say they would die for bigger breasts without thinking of the consequences. While it's certainly not the worst thing in the world, it can make wearing certain types of clothing a bit of a hassle. Tube tops are fun, and they're nice and cool to wear when the weather is warm and muggy. But, if you're a large-chested lady, you have to learn how to wear one the right way.

1.

Get fitted to find out your exact bra size. If you're not wearing the right size, you'll never have any luck with a strapless. Although bras can fit differently depending on the brand and style, typically you need to go up one cup size for a properly fitting strapless bra.

2.

Find a good underwire strapless bra with boning and stiff fabric like polyester or heavy cotton. Avoid lace, spandex, and like materials, unless they're just used as an overlay. Those materials just aren't going to offer your girls enough support.

3.

Pull the tube top up so the top of the shirt is sitting just above your bra line. You don't want your breasts -- even when they're stabilized in a bra -- to spill over the top when you bend over. There shouldn't be any excess fabric on your bra, and the top should rest snugly over your bra without any unwanted exposure.

4.

Wear a blazer or cropped leather jacket over the tube top for a layered, chic look. If you want to wear your tube top and make it work appropriate - don't laugh -- add a buttoned blazer and do one or two of the buttons up so you only see the neckline of the tube top. You'll be covered and look chic, and won't put on a skin show.

Tips & Tricks

 

Always use a strapless bra. Straps with a tube top is tacky-looking, no matter what you do. Even if you cover up with a jacket, it's still not cute.

If you aren't sure what size your breasts are and want to measure yourself, wrap a measuring tape around your torso so the tape is even under your arms. Measure around the fullest parts of your chest. Subtract the first number from the second and each inch is a cup size; if your first measurement is 34 and your second is 39, that equals 5, which means you're a DD -- or E with certain brands -- cup size. To get your band size, measure around your rib cage just under your breasts.
