Svetlana Medvedeva, Russia's premier large breasts role model

Svetlana Medvedeva is perhaps a the most surprising choice in a review of famous celebrity breasts. She is the wife of Dmitry Medveded, (the former President and) current Prime Minister of Russia, the largest geographic country in the world, covering nine times zones. (As you may have spotted, the female surname is spelt slightly differently to the male, in Russia).

He may be a rich and powerful man but she is no trophy wife. This was a true romance. Svetlana met Dmitry Medvedev when they were fourteen years old at the same school together. 

She is an interesting lady to study as she is no glamorous Hollywood type. In fact her strength is that she is a wonderfully normal. An intelligent, good looking woman in her mid forties. Famously reluctant to give interviews and she avoids photographers if she can.

I will discuss her in more detail on the right column but let us move onto the clothes. Money can buy the best haute couture but it cannot create style. Svetlana Medvedeva invariably looks good and you have to credit her for her knowledge of what suits her figure.

Svetlana Medvedeva

As you can see, Svetlana Medvedeva has abundant charms. Generally she always looks good. She is well groomed, modest, wears age appropriate skirt lengths and never displays cleavage. That is fair enough, indeed possibly to be expected of the wife of the Russian Prime Minister.

The only problem is that this understandable emphasis on modesty limits her choice and makes her a very different case to the actresses, singers and other assorted celebrity breasts I routinely discuss. She is therefore a fascinating case study.

Светла́на Медве́дев

Svetlana Medvedeva, or Светла́на Медве́дева if you wish to be correct, invariably looks good and a lot of that is down to her understanding of what suits a big busted woman. The foundation for any generously endowed woman is flattering necklines - see dresses for big busts.

Here she wears a scoopneck on the left and a strapless dress on the right. Note she wears a lace top over the strapless dress as she probably deemed it a little too immodest without. Either way, these styles suit her.

As you can tell, the event on the left is an evening black tie event and convention dictates that it is perfectly acceptable, to show cleavage - hence the low scoop. That is about the only picture I have show of her being even vaguely racy.

This is a lady who knows how to dress

Unsurprisingly, Svetlana Medvedeva also wears a lot of V neck variations and again they suit her down to the ground. She particularly uses them with fitted jackets so that she can wear a high neck top beneath.

In none of these pictures does she look like she has a massive bust which is exactly what she wants. To read more on V neckline.

Fitted jackets are seriously important for a woman with a large bust. She favours the single centre button which is a clever touch as it has a triple advantage. It not only suggests curves which is great but it also allows room for a large stromach or hips. Finally it cinches the jacket in and if there is any sign of creasing or strain it is nowhere near the bust line.

Note the flattering three quarter length sleeve length on the jackets on the left. The standard advice is to avoid detail around the bust as it draws attention but the centrally located frills on both the salmon jacket and on the white blouse are narrow and vertical so help to bring the eye down.

I apologise for the picture quality of the (top left) black jacket. The photo was so dark I had to play with it a little so that you could see the jacket detail.

Some other great variations

Looking sensational at the Bolshoi ballet in a bolero style silver lace top. On the right Svetlana Medvedeva is wearing an diamond neckline under a coat in her favourite powder blue colour.

The Elizabethan neckline is an unusual variation and I think she can afford to have it a lot lower. Note the use of a brooch to draw the eye up from the bustline.

The top on the right is also a clever twist. An inverted V neck draws the eye up to the face. The look is emphasised by the braid in a different colour. Clever eh! 

Dmitry Medvedev and wife at the G8 Summit, 2008

I mention Dmitry Medvedev but this page is all about Svetlana Medvedeva. Here she wears a wrap dress, a classic flattering style for a lady with ample boobage. It is always a massive advantage to have a dress where you can cinch in the waist to suit yourself.

The V neckline always work well but with this wrap style, one of the diagonal lines (of the V) is extended downwards, drawing the eye down even further. Note also the waist. It is often missed but it is invariably good to define your waist as it not only suggests an hourglass figure but creates balance.

Here Svetlana Medvedeva is hob-nobbing with the world''s elite and certainly does not let Russia down. The kimono style is a classy homage to her hosts as the summit was in Hokkaido, Japan. Oh, and did you see the heels!

This is where it goes off track

These are high neck dresses that do not suit the big busted. There is no break in the material or even a pattern and it makes the chest look massive. If I had a side on angle it would emphasise the issue more.

That said, I thought it only fair to show the full length picture, alongside the neckline cloe-up as you can tell she still looks good. Good sleeve lengths, subtle accessories and appropriate hem lengths. 

As I mentioned above. The desire to look smart and modest is paramount to a lady in Svetlana Medvedev's position but these ultra conservative necklines do not usually suit a lady with large boobs and I think she looks a lot better in the other outfits on the page.

That said, even though such necklines draw attention to the breasts, I am not too sure the other people on these occasions are going to be gawping at her boobs but if you are concerned about this issue, be wary of high neckline dresses and tops.

The Coats of Svetlana Medvedeva

A slightly odd topic but if you have ever wondered what coats suit a big busted woman this is a great introduction. You hardly ever see a  Hollywood star in a coat but Russia can get cold and so Svetlana is often seen in a variety of coats.

Having said that a lot of these coats are being worn during state visits to other countries.

Generally they will be V necked. A double breasted coat is to be avoided. They can be accessorised with a nice scarf to provide a dash of colour and or warmth. Note the boots on the right.

A fur trim always adds a touch of elegance. Fake fur is popular in some countries, whereas the real thing is still worn in others. I just had to show the photo of Svetlana Medvedeva at a football match. She does not exactly comfortable in a football scarf but like her husband she is supporting a local team which is laudable.

The powder blue coat above is not really an 'outdoors' coat as such, it is more of a frock coat. This is usually a good look on many body shapes as it elongates, particularly in a light colour.

The coat on the right is barely necessary as it is clearly a warm day as shown by her sunglasses and Dmitry Medvedev finally taking off his tie. The coat is a light mac. Again it is a V neck. She has tied the belt on itself to cinch in the waist.

A Great Scarf Role Model

I know this sounds a little daft but scarves can be used as great accessories for a woman with a big chest and Svetlana is a bit of a master. 

On the left she uses a pashmina to wrap around the shoulders. The light colour pashmina over a dark coat draws the eye upwards. On the right she tucks it under her lapels and creates a long vertical line which draws the eye down and covers her bust.

Svetlana Medvedeva also uses delicate silk scarves beneath her coats and jackets a lot. I am sure that initially it was to help ward off the cold but she undoubtedly realised the versatility of scarves to create a new colour and texture, to spice up an outfit.

On the right she is wearing a headscarf. I do not pretend to understand the traditions of the Russian orthodox church but clearly a scarf to cover one's head is required at times. Here she clearly combines the modesty required with a delicate scarf that creates a very pretty image.


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
