We all know that having ample curves means we can fill out an outfit like nobody's business. Gorgeous bias cut dress? Yes. Amazing wrap dress? Yes. Beautiful swimwear? Yes. Yes. Yes!
One of the joys* of being busty is that that finding the clothing to fit our busts isn't always easy! Two fashion rules I always try to follow for my shape (very full bust, small waist and juicy thighs) is:
- Cinch myself in at the smallest parts - waist; and
- Ensure my clothing has a lovely feature - e.g. square neckline or full sleeve or gorgeous fabric.
So I found these two linen outfits you can buy now, which will get you through summer, Christmas, New Years and hopefully for many years to come!
What outfits are they?
The pieces I purchased are linked below for you.
- Dylan Linen Crop Top (colour: Stone) - $59.95, sizes 6 - 14;
- Dylan Linen Midi Skirt (colour: Stone) - $89.95, sizes 6 - 14;
- Dusk Shirred Linen Midi Dress (colour: White) - $149.95, sizes 6 - 16.
Note: All styles are available in multiple colour ways! Black, Ink, Cream, Ice Blue, etc.
Both of these styles ran big, which is why they're PERFECT for my busty ladies!
I am a size 10-12 in dress sizes and a size 8G in bras, but I wear the Dylan Top and Dusk Dress both in a size 8 and have room to move in the bust. So I am pretty confident that even my H Cup ladies will fit in these styles! Size down in your dress size though otherwise they could swim on you.
I am also a size 10-12 on the bottom half but wear the Dylan Skirt in a size 8 as there is plenty of room through the hip area and it doesn't cut in around my waist. The Dusk Dress is also roomy through the body, so definitely don't worry about it clinging around the hips and thighs (which is normally my problem).
The reason I love linen is because Australian summers can be stifling and linen is breathable and durable. More importantly it can look either casual or dressy!

Much love and light,
*this is most definitely sarcasm. Shopping can be an horrific experience when you're busty but hopefully this makes it easier for you.
MARVELL LANE Musings is the blog space I, Rachael Calvert, started for my swimwear label, MARVELL LANE. I created MARVELL LANE as a swimwear label designed fashion-conscious women with large busts. My dream is that MARVELL LANE will become the go-to swimwear label for fuller busted women with designs from supportive underwire bikinis to wire-free bikinis and amazing one pieces you'd love to wear all day.
My current fuller bust swimwear size range goes from 8D, 8DD, 8E, 8F, 8G, 8H, 10D, 10DD, 10E, 10F, 10G, 10H, 12D, 12DD, 12E, 12F, 12G, 12H, 14D, 14DD, 14E, 14F, 14G, 14H, 16D, 16DD, 16E, 16F, 16G, 16H. So I hope that you find your cup size in our swimwear range and if you don't then get in touch so I know which other sizes people are looking for!
