Why Women Make Their Breasts Smaller
Some women with larger breasts may feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about their appearance. For some women, having large breasts can also be a hindrance that makes it difficult to do common activities like exercise and housework. As a result, they try to make their breasts appear smaller but without resorting to plastic surgery or other extreme measures.
Wearing Loose, Dark-Colored Clothing
One natural way to make breasts appear smaller is to wear loose, baggy clothing as opposed to figure-hugging and tight outfits that accentuate curves. Loose T-shirts, baggy sweaters and flowing tops mask large breasts. Dark-colored clothing, especially in black or navy blue, also make breasts look smaller. Buttoned up tops with higher collars make breasts appear smaller by covering the woman's cleavage. Another option is to wear an undershirt that will press breasts down, making them less prominent.
Sports Bras and Minimizing Bras
Sports bras and minimizing bras can also do the trick by keeping breasts tucked in as opposed to traditional bras that are meant to push breasts up and enhance their appearance. Some women take more extreme measures in making their breasts look smaller by wrapping gauze or bandages around their chest. This technique flattens the breasts and makes them look smaller as well.
