If you somehow missed it, news flash crop tops have been all the rage in plus size fashion this year and part of last year. And it looks like its a trend that is not going away anytime soon.
Some of you may not be ready to rock a crop top, but for those of you who are I thought I would share one of my favorites that I own as well as some tips for wearing a crop top when you have a large bust.
This is the Caged Crop Top from Society Plus. It comes in several different colors, though I don’t think this particular color is still available. I have it paired with the matching J. Kane Skirt, also from Society Plus.
For accessories I have on Comfortview Fallon Sandal‘s in mint, though I think the mint color is sold out currently. However they have three colors to choose from, and they do come in wide widths. If they are out of your size, for a similar look you might also try the Comfortview Fran Cutout Sandal.
I also have a Mint Green Hair Flower Clip in my hair. And I had on a 10k Yellow Gold Round Aquamarine Swarovski Crystal Pendant Necklace.
Since I didn’t mention it before, for the ladies who love pockets, this skirt has them. I also love how this is totally the type of skirt that makes you want to twirl.
Finding crop tops that fit you functionally are hard to find when you have a large bust. Keep in mind when I say large bust, I am speaking relative to me as I am in between a DDD cup and a G. When I was a teenager and crop tops were in, I was in a D cup then and did not find it nearly as hard. The problem is, now most crop tops ride up every time you move and show your bra.
The best solution I have found for finding a crop top that fits well on a larger chest is finding ones that have fitted bottoms with stretchy fabric like this one from Society Plus. This prevents a lot of the lifting at the bottom. If this look shows too much skin for your taste, there are similar crop tops in tank styles or some with sleeves. Or you could try pairing it with a cardigan like the Avenue’s Ribbed Mesh Cardigan. Or you could put one of the pink crops with a pair of jeans and pair it with eVogues Floral Chiffon Long Kimono Cardigan
The other solution is finding those longer crop tops that almost aren’t crop tops. A great option is the Crochet Lace Crop Top from Torrid. I have the black version of this top and its nice because you can put what you want under it for your own comfort level. Feel comfortable showing a lot of skin, go for it. And if you don’t you can easily put a cami or tank under it and it still looks good. You could even put it over a sheath dress.
No matter what your comfort level is, don’t rule them out till you at least go and try one on.
