If you’re full busted, it can be especially challenging to find clothes for the office.
Lots of curve-friendly brands focus on the quirky or vintage side of things rather than the practical. This means it can be hard to find work friendly basics like sheath dresses and blazers. These ten pieces will help any hard-working full bust person fit in at the office, or perhaps make you an office style leader.
Clara Dress by Miriam Baker:
Canadian designer Miriam Baker has created a luxe line of work-friendly pieces that fit up to an I cup. While there are lots of great things to choose from, you can never go wrong with a flattering black sheath dress. It goes with everything and is easy to build on to create a wide variety of looks, from work to date night.
Kimono Dress by Bravissimo Clothing:
A basic v-neck dress can be incredibly flattering on a full bust, as long as it hits at the right point and fits well. Luckily, Bravissimo has put out the perfect work staple dress for this season. This dress comes in sizes 4 to 14 in Curvy, Really Curvy, and Super Curvy variations. It also comes in four colors, just in case your office lets you be a bit more adventurous.
Coolgirl Jacket by Saint Bustier:
A great jacket will take you anywhere. And it is almost impossible to find one if you wear a larger cup size. This beautiful moto style jacket by Saint Bustier will actually zip up across your chest! It’s designed to fit up to a G cup and combines luxe fabrics with trendy biker inspired zippers and detailing.
Alfa Blazer by Urkye:
Blazers and suit jackets can be tricky to find. It's much easier to build up a wardrobe of cardigans and ignore more traditional options. This adorable Urkye blazer combines the two, using a knit fabric that reads like a blazer and has the relaxed fit of a cardigan. I love to wear these over tailored dresses. They’re also a great budget piece: they come in around $25 each so that you can pick up a few different color variations.
Signature Shirt by Campbell & Kate:
A collared shirt is a traditional work wardrobe workhorse but can be nearly impossible to find if you’re full busted. Campbell & Kate make gorgeous shirts that look great on curves and don’t gape. As a bonus, they will even customize the color and the cuffs if you ask.
Collared Sheath Dress by Exclusively Kristen:
Exclusively Kristen is known for their button up shirts, but their work dress options are often overlooked. I love this vintage inspired work dress in a fun yet office appropriate hue along with beautiful curve-friendly details.
Lola Dress by Bolero Beachwear:
Don’t overlook Bolero Beachwear’s offerings because of their name! While they do carry things like maxi dresses and swim cover-ups, they also make a wide range of curve friendly dresses that work well at the office. This Lola dress is made from warm Ponte di Roma fabric, making it the perfect piece to wear as we transition into autumn.
Indra Blazer Coat by Universal Standard:
Trench coats are a great look for the office but can be challenging to wear if you’re full busted. This Indra Blazer Coat is a cross between an office-friendly long coat and a blazer, which means you can wear it over anything and it will still look chic. It features simple details that help create a smart and versatile look.
Marillyn Dress by Universal Standard:
This Marillyn dress has a square v-neck that is flattering and unusual, along with a beautiful draped fit. High-quality satin backed crepe means that this dress feels incredibly comfortable. It also has pockets!
Cotton Chambray Obi-Belt Shirtdress by eShakti:
Everyone needs one great shirtdress, but gaping buttons can ruin this classic look. eShakti lets you customize pieces to your height and measurements, as well as change sleeves and other features to create a dress that works for your body and your style. I love this basic denim shirtdress combined with the wide obi belt to provide a waist-cinching effect.
If you're full busted, which of these curve friendly clothing brands do you wear? Are there any others you would add to this list?
