Laura San Giacomo
Short and Busty

When one pictures Laura San Giacomo boobs are one of the first images than come to mind. This must be particularly annoying for what is clearly an intelligent woman. However it is a simple fact that in any list of famous celebrity breasts, LSG is going to be right up there.

Busty Laura San Giacomo

Laura is probably best known for her role as the feisty feminist Maya Gallo in the successful sit-com Just Shoot Me.

Not least because the producers insisted on her wardrobe staple being a series of tight turtlenecks which highlighted her abundant curves.

Actually this is a fascinating study because the lady wears styles which both highlight and de-emphasize her undoubtedly big boobs. She is not tall and is a great role model for the short and busty.

Turtlenecks are dangerous for busty women

What can a busty actress do? Your character is supposed to be a somewhat innocent, girl next door type so the producers take that opportunity to dress you in a tight turtleneck.

The viewing figures are excellent and suddenly you are obliged to wear a series of these garments throughout the life of the show.

If nothing else, the above pictures from the hit NBC show, Just Shoot Me, show the effect turtlenecks, or polo necks as we call them here in Britain, have on a busty woman. This is why I list them under the category of what not to wear for a lady with big boobs, if you do not want the attention.

However instructive for us, that choice of clothes would not have been hers. It is therefore interesting to see how she dresses the much discussed Laura San Giacomo boobs off the set.

Actually she wears an interesting selection of styles which suit and ordinarily do not suit a busty woman. It is hopefully instructive to compare the two.

She clearly is very comfortable in herself and has the confidence to wear tops that do not hide her large boobs. However she clearly is a lot more than a pair of celebrity breasts, (like some ladies, in this section). She is therefore a useful study if you too do not care if people stare at your bust.

The other really useful lesson is in how to dress a short, slim and big busted frame. Laura is an inverted triangle body shape but she is also not tall. In simple terms, she is short and busty. She clearly knows how to dress to elongate her figure so provides a useful lesson for shorter ladies.


Laura San Giacomo Photos 
of Good and Bad Style Choices

Scoop Necks

Deep round scoop necklines are a great style for a lady with a lot up top.

I think this is possibly the best of the Laura San Giacomo photos on the page.

Because scoopnecks are so good for ladies with ample boobage I have devoted an entire page to it, if you fancy.

Scoop neck dresses suit big busts

Boat Necks

I am being a tad harsh here because I think she looks lovely in this coordinated outfit.

However, we are looking at the issue of suitability and those big Laura San Giacomo boobs look massive in a high neckline top.

You can see the difference when she wears a more suitable scoopneck style above is a better option than this, more shallow, boat neck style.

I also discuss this issue in more detail on another page - the boatneck neckline.

V Necks

I am not quite sure what is going on with her hair here but ignore that and concentrate on the V neck.

The Laura San Giacomo boobs are certainly big but this long deep V makes them almost disappear.


Sleeve Length

Saving Grace Star Laura San Giacomo

Laura San Giacomo also appears in the show Saving Grace. Look at the close up from the picture above and concentrate on the length of her sleeve. I discuss this issue in more detail on the page sleeve length but the bottom line is that a sleeve length which stops level with your boobs is not good.

Again I would add that an actress does not choose what she wears on a set.


Patterns

Laura San Giacomo looks good in patterns. There are many that state that patterns do not work well on a busty woman but that is not true.

Yes certain big blocks of pattern on the bust itself can attract the eye in a negative light. But if the pattern is spread evenly throughout, it creates a camouflage effect.

Patterns can break up big busts

See-Through

You can forgive any woman in Hollywood as they have to compete with so many others for the papparazzis' lenses.

But generally a see-through top is not a good look for a busty woman as eyes will hone in on your bust even more than normal.

It does however highlight how comfortable our Laura is with her curves and the fact that perhaps she is well aware she is high up in the celebrity breasts stakes.

See through tops are risky for any woman

Monochromes

This is an interesting outfit, fraught with risk but I think Laura San Giacomo pulls it off with style

The danger is immediately apparent. A big bust in a light coloured top. However the advantages outweigh the disadvantages:

The vertical bare flesh of the arms; the scoopneck and the vertical block of the monochrome colours all classic means of de-emphasising a big bust.

A monochrome colour scheme is also a wonderful 'trick' for short and busty ladies.

As you can tell, Laura San Giacomo has actually grown to love her turtlenecks. Possibly because it is a top she has become so inextricably linked to or maybe because they are simply very comfortable.

Generally I advise not to wear them as they tend to be tight and highlight those large Laura San Giacomo breasts.

However, fashion and style are all about wearing what makes you feel good.

Like many women with an ample bust, Laura has had to live with people staring at the Laura San Giacomo boobs all her adult life. This can be even more difficult for intelligent women but she has undoubtedly come to terms with the fact and now usually wears clothes she feels comfortable in.

She wears turtlenecks because she likes them even though she must be aware they draw attention to her bust. Good for her! It is nice to see a big busted woman who clearly is comfortable with her shape.

....and let's face it. It is good to see a woman with an ample, all natural bust doing well in Hollywood.

I do have to mention the frock coats. These long coats help to elongate the figure. Laura San Giacomo is not tall and should be a poster girl for the short and busty fraternity (or is that sorority?).

These frock coats with a long  splash of monochrome colour take the eye up and down and lengthen your silhouette. She clearly understands this as she couples it with monochrome beneath.

Actually, since she so clearly understands all the tricks to lengthening one's figure. It is interesting to see that she regularly wears pants / trousers too. Note also the similar coloured boots. All these 'tricks' help to elongate.

Great Legs on Laura San Giacomo

Whilst she actually has very shapely legs, she rarely flashes the pins.

This may be a personal preference but I suspect it is because she recognises how the bottom hem of a skirt will cut a line across the figure. Whereas a long unbroken block of colour will elongate.


There is something about Laura San Giacomo which I instinctively like. It is partly that she clearly has her own style and partly because she is so clearly a genuine person.

Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan

Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman

You may not realise it but it was also Laura playing a brassy hooker alongside Julia Roberts in the massive hit, Pretty Woman.

Amazingly the much vaunted Laura San Giacomo boobs remained relatively covered up in the movie but she did get to flash a great pair of legs.


Just Shoot Me

Just Shoot Me Cast

I know the above is a publicity still for the show but the cast clearly do get on well. You will find a lot of Laura San Giacomo pictures with her co-stars which show they clearly simply enjoy each others company.

I also thought it instructive to see that when co-star David Spade was awarded a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to immortalise his hands in concrete; Laura, Enrico Colantoni and Wendie Malick all turned up to support him.

Laura even had made and wore a tee shirt with the message, "It's all about Spade". How refreshing (and unusual) to see a star happy to see her friend in the spotlight.



Nina Takes A Lover

One of her most famous roles was in the movie Nina Takes A Lover. I am not going to post the pictures but there are certainly scenes, where the amazing Laura San Giacomo boobs make an appearance when she is getting dressed, which will give her male fans palpitations.


Sex, Lies & Videotape

Sex Lies and Videotape

The other big movie where she caused a stir, as the 'free-spirited' (horny) bar tender in Sex, Lies & Videotape.


The Caring Mother

Not many people realise that Laura has a son with cerebal palsy. A son of whom she is hugely proud and supportive.

It is wonderful to hear that she considers the two biggest accomplishments of her life are her acting career and her son.

It is too easy to think that she has money so it is easier for her. No mother of a child with severe disabilities has it easy. She has devoted a lot of time to his schooling in particular so that he could attend a 'normal' school and she clearly is determined to do the best by him come what may. Quotes.

The fact that she has nurtured a young boy into becoming a young man who optimises his life; many people would argue is probably her biggest achievement.

Undoubtedly it gives her a lot of perspective when it comes to dealing with the vain and vacuous in Hollywood. Laura I for one salute you.
