Aaaaah -- never looked so didn't know this. NOW we get to the "meat" of the matter.


Did someone suggest you not wear this because it would look suggestive? Or say it looked suggestive on you, and you didn't like it?


A 32" bust with a broad back doesn't add up to much up front, and it's still a 32.

A 32" bust with a narrow, petite back can mean someone is seriously packing in the headlights department.

Very different effects in exactly the same sweater.

Dewdrop's comment still nails it.

There was an interview with Tina Fey a while back (in Vogue, maybe) where she says that she can't wear clothes designed for models and/or WASPs because she ends up looking either matronly or trampy. I totally get that.

I have a large bust and I could not properly fit into a sweater like that. If I get it to fit the chest then the arms and body of the sweater will be too big and baggy. If I get it to fit my arms and body then the chest would be too tight.

Now, I wear fitted clothing and I'd wear that sweater so that it fit in the body and arms and was a little snugger in the chest. And I'd know damn well that I was accentuating my chest and I'd expect a few gawks, oogles and stares here and there. I wouldn't pretend that it's "just a sweater" and that everyone who gawks and stares is being ridiculous.

Yup, unfortunately "curvy" figure types are always considered more suggestive than less curvy ones.

Makes it really hard to find work clothing that's for sure.

To me there's a big difference between saying, "Your outfit is suggestive," and saying, "Your body is suggestive." Why say the former when you mean the latter.
Because you can control how you dress. I don't wear things that look too suggestive on me. It's the same as a person with no curves trying to look sexy. She's going to have a more difficult time finding something that makes her "unsuggestive" body look suggestive. If you have a suggestive body but you don't want to look suggestive - you can control that.

Which goes back to my point saying why say someone's outfit is suggestive when you really mean someone's body is suggestive? That sweater properly fitted on anyone is not suggestive in the slightest.

Well yes, a patron at job #2 did say that exact same v-neck was "suggestive" on me, properly fitted with zero cleavage showing. Now contrast that with the fact that a lot of my co-workers make fun of me for wearing sweaters in the summer. This is why I wear sweaters in the summer.

If one has very large breasts and one wears very tight, form-fitting sweaters, people who enjoy looking at large breasts are going to assume that the choice of garments was intended to encourage their attention.

I know. I have large breasts.

If I feel like wearing tight sweaters or showing cleavage? I do.

If someone notices or comments, or hits on me? I'm not surprised.

Nor should you be. You bought enormous breasts. Maybe you see this as something just for you. That's your right. It's your body.

But, people aren't blind. If you want something ignored, you don't paint a bullseye on it.

That's right up there with people who buy very expensive cars, homes, clothes, etc then get mad when they think someone may be interested in them for their money. Well, duh.
