The trend of cutting out is getting bolder and bolder. The open shoulder, low back or waist designs seem to have become familiar, even trivial. To attract attention, the wearer seems to have to choose strange cuts. It can be the sides and thighs (making passersby wonder if the wearer is wearing underwear), the front of the waist (revealing the desirable 11 abs), and now the chest line.
How to wear the delicate cut-out trend?
Of course, fashion cut out has never been associated with keywords such as elegant, basic, classic. But cut out is not necessarily synonymous with a flirtatious image. Choosing the right cut out outfit will help you be attractive enough but still fashionable.
Today, Harper’s Bazaar will tell you the secret to wearing a cut out dress that shows the bust in a subtle way.
What is underbust? Where did the trend of revealing topless clothes begin?
The underbust is the area that covers the upper waist and lower part of the chest. You’ve probably noticed that the fashion of the stars, from the red carpet to the street style, in recent times often leaves this area open. For example, Miss Supranational 2022 runner-up Kim Duyen or singer Ho Ngoc Ha.
Cut out is not a new trend. Cut out is one of the prevailing fashion trends of the 20-21 century, returning to the catwalk regularly about every few years. Every return has a certain difference. And the reason that topless fashion becomes the hot trend of 2022 is entirely because of Jacquemus.
When Jacquemus launched the Fall/Winter 2021 collection, the image of Kendall Jenner striding on the catwalk with a short shirt, just enough to cover her breasts, immediately caused a storm on social networks. Then, BLACKPINK member Jennie also chose Jacquemus’s bare chest crop top, prolonging the life of this underbust trend.
Of course, Jacquemus’ design is not a cut out product. But it quickly integrated with the cut out trend, creating a new style of cut out that will prevail in 2022.
6 notes when wearing a cut out outfit that shows off the chest line to always be charming
1. How wide is the chest opening line? Answer: The smaller the more luxurious.
The general rule is that the more revealing the fashion, the less charming it is. The same goes for clothes that cut out at the bustline. A small slit, revealing a bit of delicate skin, is the most luxurious. For example, the designs of CONG TRI Autumn Winter 2022 above.
You can also choose a model with a small cut in the center of the chest, like the one by Monico. that Jun Vu wears. Just enough to create a sexy look but not too revealing.
2. The width of the bust cut should be adjusted according to the bust size.
A statement about fashion cut out with open waist and chest is that because it cannot be worn with a bra, the design is only suitable for people with a full bust. Many flat-chested women feel that they are underpowered when wearing this fashion trend.
In fact, girls with “big” breasts are more likely to look flaunted when wearing outfits that cut out at the bustline. For example, the Christopher Esber dress (pictured above) shows a lot of MLee’s bust. This makes the outfit feel revealing. Meanwhile, people with smaller busts will not reveal too much of their breasts when wearing this dress.
Therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that the tendency to cut at the bustline is an advantage for her with small breasts. Even though the bust line is extended down to the waist, the small bust can still be well balanced.
And those with a large bust should choose clothes with a very thin cut out right at the chest line so as not to be flaunted.
3. Balance between closed and open spaces.
If your outfit has cutouts all over the place, it’s no different from…wearing nothing. Therefore, there should be a balance between closed and open.
For example, Ho Ngoc Ha is very charming with a cut out dress that opens her chest. The cut line looks like a blooming flower on the long maxi skirt.
Meanwhile, Kim Duyen is not as charming. Because her evening dress has just cut out at the chest and has a high slit that reaches to the hips. Knowing that the design is to show off Kim Duyen’s slim and sexy body, but revealing too much skin makes the overall Miss Supranational 2022 runner-up look less luxurious.
4. Reduce the redundant details to make the overall outfit more luxurious.
The rule of thumb for dressing well is that the outfit should have only one (or two) main accents. It can be outstanding colors, colorful textures, fancy shapes… And the cut line can also be seen as the highlight of the outfit. If an outfit has too many details, it will become gaudy.
For example, the way Ho Ngoc Ha combines a cut out shirt with high-quality standard pants. Because the shirt has many sophisticated details when using both the cut out line and the pleats around the chest, the female singer chose to combine the shirt with simple black pants. Her hair is also neatly tied with a ton-sur-ton colored scarf with the shirt.
Also the design is open to the upper waist and lower abdomen, but Midu looks cumbersome when compared to Ha Ho. The reason is that this evening dress has too many competing details. Horizontal shoulder bridge. Open cut shoulder, lower half of bust, upper waist and navel. The cut out part has more sparkling crystal strings. Just remove a superfluous detail (for example, a crystal cord) and Midu will immediately look more luxurious.
5. Should try on clothes before buying, instead of ordering online
When buying clothes that are cut out in general and have a cut at the bust line in particular, you should try on the clothes in person instead of just ordering them online. When trying on clothes, you should move back and forth, stand up, sit down, twist your waist… Because the cut lines can make you “exposed” during movement.
Take for example the DATT dress above. When standing upright, the design is very nice and neat. But when sitting down, the cut-out lines and the wire connecting the pieces of fabric became rumpled and puffy. The reason is that the dress is made of non-stretch material, so it is not able to hug the body. Trying on things before buying will help you limit these unpredictable things.
6. Bring a bra or nipple patch when trying on clothes.
For dresses that reveal the bust line, it will be difficult for you to coordinate with a normal bra. At this time, your close “companion” will be a glued bra. It could be a nipple patch, a strapless bra, or a nipple patch with bunny ears.
Nipple patches are the most versatile. With its small size, it can match any cut out outfit. The only downside is that it doesn’t have sagging resistance for twin mounts. And it also does not create the necessary support for those with a “terrible” bust.
Sticky bras and rabbit ears stickers are both capable of filling the chest, creating a more rounded appearance for the bust. However, the sticker can be exposed because of the cut line. So, when you go to try on cut out outfits, you should bring your bra with you for convenience.
