Although I am more than happy with my smaller bust, there are some situations in which I want a good level of cleavage to make outfits look more flattering… however, there is no way I am going under the knife to make myself bigger (scary nooooooo thank you!). So, after trying an extensive array of push-up bras I finally found one that worked!
This is the Ultra-Boost Bra from Boux Avenue and it’s padding is designed to make your bust 2 times larger.
Officially, I measure at a 28D, however the ultra-boots only go from a 30 backband. To combat this, I went to my sister size of a 30C. By going up in the backband and down in the cup size the difference is accounted for. As you can see in the first photo below I have smaller apex and little-no cleavage in the Tori bra from Boux Avenue, where as in the last photo on this post I’m more voluptuous and appear to have a larger cleavage.
In the Ultra-Boots, I suggest really pulling your bust up and into the bra, so you’re sat on top of the padding and ensuring the straps are tight enough. You should be able to fit two fingers comfortably between them and the top of your shoulder. It is also important to wear the correct size bra- not only for health reasons, but also to make sure your bust is getting enough support from the backband. Boux offer an amazing fitting service so if you’re around one I would highly recommend popping in.
To further enhance the shadow and natural cleavage has I use the NYX contour shade Sculpt on a contour brush and dust this lightly around the perimeter of my bust, concentrating the product towards the centre of the cleavage. I also add a small amount of concealer to the centre of my chest and slightly upwards, then blend this in with my Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge and set this in place with the Kiko Invisible setting powder.
