Women are seeking plastic surgeons in cities from Boston to Seattle to Tulsa to Phoenix for breast implants. And how exciting it is to have a gorgeous new figure.
What’s more exciting: shopping for new clothes! But not just any clothes. You want the right attire that will allow you to beautifully complement your new curves and express your newfound confidence.
After breast augmentation, many of your old clothes probably won’t fit properly. So for starters, try on your current clothes to see what fits. Sell or give away the ones that don’t.
Remember that your breasts will be swollen after surgery for up to 2 months. Allow time for healing before you purchase most of your new clothes. Also, before you buy, get measured by a professional fitter. Then head to the store and start trying on new sizes and different fashions to find what fits most comfortably and looks most flattering.
Fashion tips for your larger breasts
- Start with a good foundation: the bra. Use the measurements from your professional fitting. With fuller breasts, you’ll need more support. Buy a few high-quality bras that fit well and provide the needed support. Remember, avoid underwires until your surgeon gives you the OK.
- With a larger bust, you’ll want to find styles that balance your figure. Styles like darker colors, vertical stripes, V-necks and sweetheart necklines, fitted tops, and single-breasted coats create a lengthened, more proportionate appearance. Select tops and dresses that skim (not squeeze) your body and materials with some stretch.
- Avoid fashions that make your upper half look top-heavy – cropped jackets, double-breasted coats, wide lapels, decorative details near or along the neckline. Also, an enormous or bulbous purse with a short strap tucked high up under your arm is a no-no. Use slenderer purses that hang closer to your waist or hips.
- Choose bottoms that accentuate your lower half and complement your upper half – pant legs and skirts that flair. Unless you have the hips and butt for it, tight-fitting bottoms or too-skimpy swimsuit bottoms will make your top look unbalanced.
- If you’re searching for a new 2-piece, choose swimwear that you can mix and match.
If you don’t already, you may want to treat yourself to some professionally tailored outfits. You don’t have to get every clothing item custom-fitted, just select attire. A couple of suits. A dress or two. Or maybe some tops and a coat. Some staple items for a variety of occasions.
If you’re just well-prepared and doing your research before having breast enlargement surgery, make sure your research involves a consultation with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeons at Advanced Aesthetic Associates are board-certified and have advised many women about the right implant choice for their needs.
