STYLE ADVICE: I have a large bust and am struggling to find flattering work jackets.

Posted on: August 18, 2014


QUESTIONS: I struggle finding work blazers or jackets that fit smartly. Having a large bust and broad shoulders means I end up needing a bigger size which looks awful around the waist and too long on the arms. Can you make any suggestions? Biker jackets look good on me but not really suitable for work.


ANSWER: I can imagine how tricky it must be to get good tailoring for a larger bust but we have some suggestions we hope you’ll love.


1. Saint Bustier, Jacket £109: Check out this great online store with a mantra for catering to bigger busts. This black jacket is the perfect versatile piece to kick off your wardrobe. With its sleek minimalist design you can add it to any dress or blouse and skirt to be work ready:



2. Violeta by Mango, Jacket £44.99:– A shawl collar is perfect for a bigger bust the collar will fall nicely without adding any extra bulk. This white blazer is great for important days when looking extra smart is paramount. Team with a v-neck shift and courts:




3. Oasis, Jacket £42:– This lightweight jersey style is great for different combinations will work great with navy, black, white and even nude, which means versatility and lots of wear. The fluid fit is another bonus as the fit won’t look to restricting but will remain smart:




4. Vivienne Westwood, Jacket £390:– And of corse a staple black blazer with a twist from the British veteran designer Vivienne Westwood. You’ll have this jacket forever and the tailoring is directly suited to accommodate a large bust and cinch the waist. Another jacket for over dress and to wear with skirts. SarahA x
