The Silk Camisole For Big Boobs
(Practical Proof That There is a God)

A silk camisole for big boobs is a wonderfully cheap way of adding a bit of glamour to any curvy clothing wardrobe and a garment you will enjoy wearing simply because it feels as good as it looks.

These simple tops are actually an almost essential element for a busty woman because they often serve an incredibly useful function by adding a little modesty when required.

A silk cami can be worn alone but is often used for modesty or to great effect in layering.

Below I briefly discuss the advantages of these marvellous tops for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. 

Many of the photos on this page are of this wonderful garment in isolation but for the most part, it's real use is beneath a top, sweater or jacket.

What Is A Silk Camisole?

What is a silk camisole? Well a camisole is usually a simple, thin top. Camis are predominantly produced in lace, silk or satin. So why a silk camisole? Well obviously it is your choice and any of these materials will provide a garment that will do it's job.

However, silk has long been admired because it has a number of very positive advantages:

  1. It is a natural fibre and so 'breathes' better than man made alternatives
  2. It is incredibly light and thin, yet very strong so that it is a perfect item to wear beneath other tops without creating bulk
  3. It shimmers. This is caused by the natural triangular prism like structure of the material
  4. It is deemed classy. People (read other women) will be able to tell what material it is and you will gain Brownie points for style

For a good introduction to the history and properties of silk, please have a look at the wikipedia silk entry

The above two photos show how even 'plain' silk camis can vary enormously. Above left is a crop top and sleeveless; whereas on the right is a strappy, longer style.

As you will see, there is a wide variety of colours available but the most common colours are either black or white

Of course a huge advantage of silk is that it can be printed which lends itself to all sorts of colourful variations. on the right is a cheerful floral display.

As you may have already spotted, some of these garments are not technically camisoles. I would tend to refer to them as simply silk tops but often the retailers confuse the two.

Strap Variety

A seemingly irrelevant issue but worth a quick detour.

Normally a silk camisole has spaghetti, or thin, straps but it can have a wide strap. Sometimes the spaghetti straps are adjustable which is helpful but the adjusters might create a lump (albeit a small one) under your top, so watch out for that.

The issue of straps is always worth considering if you are busty and wearing one of your big bras because they will often have wide straps themselves and thin straps will simply make your large bra straps seem even bigger, which generally you do not want.

Neckline Variations In These
Tops For Women

Whilst there are other options available, by far the two most common necklines in these type of tops for women are the V neck and round neck tops. Always worth having one of each at least if you like to wear your silk cami beneath a shirt or blouse.

The Choice of Fit

Another big decision is the type of fit you want. By their nature silk camisoles are not stretchy and body hugging but they can be reasonably close fitting. The alternative is a far looser fit.

Another big decision is the type of fit you want. By their nature silk camisoles are not stretchy and body hugging but they can be reasonably close fitting. The alternative is a far looser fit.

I have shown the above design from two angles to really emphasise the loose fitting style. This one is not actually real silk but is described as a silk style material. This raises an important issue, do you want the real thing or are you happy enough with the (often cheaper) alternatives, which look very similar?

Other Uses For a Silk Camisole
For Big Boobs

Throughout this page I primarily refer to the silk cami for big breasts as a garment that is worn beneath another top. However, it is one of the most versatile weapons in the curvy clothing armoury. 

It is sometimes worn by itself as a top in it's own right, primarily in warm climates or for partying. It is also used as night time, or more specifically bedtime, attire. 

I am not quite sure why, but often you will find a silk cami teamed with boxer shorts for nightime wear as seen above; often described as a 'silk cami and boxers' set, or sometimes with accompanying 'French knickers'.

Now the above two are not actually silk camisoles but I wanted to include them as an alternative. Primarily because they are produced as supplements to big bust lingerie ranges. Therefore they are specifically designed to accommodate ample boobage.

Some of these products also include an integral support bra. The top on the right is from the famous Freya lingerie range which specifically caters for cup sizes above DD but it is jersey, not silk.

I am sure you probably were already aware of the value of simple camisoles but it is always worth repeating, if not to merely remind ourselves what wonderfully garments they are.

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.

When Modesty Matters

A Silk cami can provide modesty when needed

A silk camisole for big boobs can often save the day, by providing a degree of modesty for a busty lady.

If this lady had not worn one beneath her top she may have been considered to be flashing a little too much flesh.

As you can also see the layered, two tone effect is a stylish look.

I always like to draw examples from around the world if I can.

Here is the German politician, Sylvia Yvonne Kaufmann.

She is sporting a wonderfully simple example of how a very plain silk camisole can be worn to good effect.

Here a high neck beneath a V neck jacket creates a very modest yet classy effect for the 'office'.

Ordinarily I tend to discourage high necklines for busty women but with the jacket breaking up the block of white and covering the boobs too, it becomes a very viable alternative way to wear a silk camisole for big boobs.


layering with a camisole or vest

Okay this is not a silk cami it actually looks like a simple white tee shirt but the principle is the same.

Whilst we generally use camisoles as a form of modesty panel, this photo illustrates a more racy approach which can be taken.

Another excellent example of a colour coordinated approach providing more modesty for a busty lady. Remember that this photo is taken from above which is always going to highlight cleavage.


An Alternative?

Purely as an alternative, if this floats your boat, you could try a body. 

I admit this is not silk but it will give a light, sheer look and feel. The one above is underwired and made specifically for large breasted women by Freya.
