HarpersBazaar.com just reported that Rihanna is dropping a lingerie line, Savage x Fenty, that will also cater to curvy gals.
Launching next week already, the range is smoking hot by the looks of the Instagram teasers she's been posting...
She also recently covered Vogue Magazine...
Having a generous cup size can cause quite a few issues when shopping for bras or choosing what to wear. Yet, many think this shouldn’t be considered a 'problem'.
“Oh, shame poor you, you have big boobs”, they say under their breath sarcastically. But truly, I’ve heard more women complain about having big breasts than those with a mere handful.
Most people think it is all about the back pain, as if we might just fall over at any moment. Run, Boob-aggedon!
But there’s a bit more to it than that.
So, growing up with more than a handful myself, I have considered the pros and cons of the (extra) flesh:
• Others want something you have
• You have the option to emphasise your cleavage
• You fill out a polo neck quite well
• Your breasts always play peek-a-boo in your button-down shirts
• Sleeping on your stomach can be rather... breath-limiting
• Closing your blazer or white shirt is but a pipe dream
Taking my wealth of knowledge on the subject into consideration, I urge you to dress for big boobs without fear, and with gusto.
Here are a few tips:
Find a good bra. Get yourself measured and buy your correct size. We all know that we are probably walking around wearing the wrong size, especially as our weight fluctuates*.

After locating this perfect bra, get a few. Like five. Same goes for a bikini top. It’s like finding a good cup of coffee in some small SA towns, I tell you.
Don’t hide them. I often do this. We have cleavage, therefore, we don’t want to flaunt it. But flaunting is not necessarily the crux, as ManRepeller says: it’s really all about balance. You can wear tight things and cleavage-revealers – it just depends on how you style said look.
Wear a tight white tee with mom jeans or wide-leg pants. Do not go tight on tight.
Or don’t show lots of leg and lots of cleavage. Balance things out.
Button-downs and blazers can be your friends. Refinery29 actually encourages you to wear a shirt (minus peek-a-boo) and/or a blazer (and be able to close the button) – all you need to do is buy it a size or two bigger.
Now I know we hate doing this, but it’s not you, it’s your boobs! They need some extra room. Give the girls some space.
