It’s no exaggeration to say that crop tops can be the most anxiety-enducing summer wardrobe staple for many women. Especially for us plus sized babes. It’s all about finding the right look for your body shape so that you feel banging’ hot.
Crop tops are actually one of the most flattering summer pieces you can choose, because they draw the eye to the thinnest part of pretty much every woman’s body (the underboob space)
On a side note, if anyone has shown the world that curvy girls can (and should) wear crop tops, it’s Kim Kardashian. She’s walking proof that a crop top really is the perfect way to show off your assets.
Now I whilst majority of us aren’t as lean and trim as KK, there’s a way for you to wear crop tops. My tip is to pair a short-to-midi length crop with a high-waist skirt, so only a relatively modest sliver of skin is showing. If you have a large bust I’d lean towards scoop necks and V’s.
ALL HAIL THE QUEENS OF CROP! and dare I say, this might be the best one yet. This thick, scuba material has a slight stretch, and is made of 95% Polyester and 5% Spandex, which means it holds its shape, without suffocating you. The strap detailing makes it the perfect top for going out or dressing up. Also available in black, salmon, light pink and mint fresh.
I own it in black, just didn’t have any photos handy to include in this post. This crop is specifically MADE for plus size.

Bright watermelon pink lace with a scalloped trim kicks up this semi-sheer beauty to another level (a pop of color that’s primed for semi-sheer looks). No underwire or padding. Adjustable straps.

Handy hint – postage to Aus isn’t cheap so sign up to their newsletter and keep an eye out for their sales as they are quite frequent or even do an order with friends to make the order cost effective.
The black lace top is all sophisticated with a scoop neck and short sleeves, but the sheer fabrication and tummy-skimming length let your skin say hello. Wear over another crop if you are daring or even a singlet top for a modest elegant look.
Being above a size 14 and in my 30’s, Supre isn’t normally a store I step foot into. Mainly because I have a large bust and they don’t stock plus sizes BUT recently I’ve been trying on the XXL items which have a fair amount of stretch. This style crop is still a little too tight on my G cup norks however it may fit you so give it a go. Supre have replicated this crop in many colours and patterns.
Perfectly paired with your favourite jeans or styled with a sexy pencil skirt, the Sequin Crop Top is your staple party piece this season. I personally would add a colourful high wasted skirt.
Aussie babes NOW is the time to buy crops from USA and UK retailers as the seasons are crossing over you can grab yourself a bargain. I’m not expecting to see many plus size crops available in mainstream Aussie retail shops at all this season. HAPPY SHOPPING!
