Speaking with Fabulous, these fashion gurus shared their top tips on how to make your wardrobe work for you.
India Batson, 27, has 417,000 subscribers. Youtube channel where she shares fashion tips, hairstyles and vlogs about her life.
When it comes to looking good, it starts with your underwear, so choose your bra carefully.
India confessed: “I’d rather have one amazing bra than five shitty bras with no support any day.
“I’m a 32G currently, your bra size fluctuates with weight and that’s normal.”
Anyone with large breasts knows how hard it is to find a bra that isn’t the boring beige that always hides behind pretty lace numbers.
India joked, “This just in, you don’t have to wear a big granny bra just because you have big boobs!”
Just because you have breasts larger than a C cup doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the latest style craze either.
“Don’t let your feminine details change your style or way of expressing yourself.
“If you want to wear the turtleneck with big breasts, DO IT! If you want to wear the halter dress with small breasts, DO IT!”
India isn’t alone in tipping the breast-blessed, Bethany, 33, who spends Dear Bethany online has taught countless women how to make their clothes look their best.
With a whopping 1.7 million loyal viewers on it Youtube channel, she has been giving valuable style advice.
She shared: “A professional bra fitter once told me that it’s all about the band.
“Usually we wear the band too big and the cups too small.
“Instead, try a smaller band and larger cup, your back will feel much more supported.”
And don’t even bother with a strapless bra, “they never stay in place to begin with, so I always found myself trying to keep them up and my arms by my side,” Bethany shared.
“Now I choose B-Six Nippies, or lingerie that would still be beautiful if it showed a little bit.”
Of course, not everyone feels like they can get away without a bra, with the fashion pro adding that “if you need extra support, opt for a bodysuit.”
India also says that jumpsuits are the way to go: “They fit you in all the right places without pinching or pulling and they also look expensive if they fit correctly.”
It’s not just bras that can affect the way your outfit looks, if your shoes rub they can ruin your entire day, not just your appearance.
Bethany recommends investing in inserts for especially uncomfortable shoes like heels: “If it’s a shoe that can hide a sock, wear it for about a week with socks before wearing it to a big event.
“If they still hurt, then don’t keep them, you’ll be thinking about the pain more than living in the moment,” he explained.
You will never look as elegant or as comfortable in your own body as when you are literally comfortable.
Don’t let your feminine details change your style or way of expressing yourself.
When it comes to finding clothes that fit you, don’t overthink it.
“I love an elastic waistband, but it never breaks a sweat,” said the style whiz.
“Instead, I choose linen or silk pants that I can wear with block heels or stay home with slip-on mules.”
India’s best shoe tip is to work smarter, not harder.
She said: “Make it look like you’re wearing them all night, but you really aren’t.
“Take them off in the car, take them off under the table at dinner, and stretch your toes.”
With the rest of your outfit, Bethany says it’s all about shapewear.
“They don’t need to be too tight or worn to change the shape of the body, but they work great for creatively tucking in a blouse, folding down the front of a French shirt, or just to the side.
“They can also gather extra fabric and pull it tight to reduce bulk.”
“When I style oversized tops, I always try to show a little skin, whether it’s on the neckline or on the forearms.
“Don’t forget to try combing a belt with anything to gather extra fabric.
“If you want to get the perfect fit, a tailor is always the best option. I always include this in my budget for parts,” he added.
