Ha ha ha so true!

But I agree with everyone, too much cleavage showing could be gawky and and inappropriate, especially if htey have large breasts. A little can go a long way, you know.

If people are gawking at your breasts, that would be a sure sign of too much

I think if you have to ask if it's too much cleavage, it probably is. If I find myself wondering, "Is this appropriate?" or "Does this match/look okay?", I change.

I'm so glad I found this thread...I had a little incident yesterday. I wore a slightly large fitting top which incidentally showed more of my boobies than I thought. I knew the top was big so I tried my best to adjust it the way I could. Well someone patient at my job decided they want to fill out a comment card saying that my clothes were inappropriate and that men were ogling me in the line......Um, she and her husband were the only people in lines so I guess she got mad because her husband was looking at my boobs. She tried to get me in trouble over this and it pissed me off. I was not trying to show any cleavage at work, but nevertheless a baggy top and ample boobies is a no no. There's really no point to this story other than it has to deal with cleavage and the client pissed me off.

Oh my goodness DLG...I'm totally with you...I'm p**sed off just hearing that story. Grr. People could be so closed-minded and sexist. A similar thing happened to me when I was showing NOTHING. People will just make things up to pick on.

The amount of appropriate cleavage depends on so many factors; the time, place, occasion, who will see it (how it will be interpreted), behavior and attitude of the wearer, figure of the wearer, and how tastefully it's done. No set rules.

There are so many different kinds of cleavage, and we doers and viewers should keep that in mind:

It can have a fresh, clean and bright feeling when done right.
It could visually balance out an outfit.
I even think cleavage can highlight the intellectuality or cultural sophistication of the wearer.
There's powerful cleavage.
There's the natural-woman cleavage.
I once heard the phrase "stoic decolleté" referring to flat-chested women wearing ballerina-like very open tops. I liked that phrase.
I've seen many very elegant elderly European women wear deep v-neck knits with pearls and a long silk scarf for example to highlight a little cleavage. It's a very sophisticated look. (Sadly, Japanese women of a certain age would NEVER be seen dead doing that...)
...and on.

^ Well thanks for the sympathy cause I wasn't sure if I had the right to be upset or not. I wasn't doing it on purpose, I wasn't flirting with any men or her husband. Granted I was at work in a professional setting, but I didn't mean any harm.

^ dlg, as long as you have a clear conscience, don't be unduly upset about what other people think.

I don't HATE toe cleavage but I'd rather not have it. :p

With smaller boobs, you can get away with lower / more plunging necklines (except you gotta be careful that the necklines fit well) but with bigger boobs, you should cover up more especially since I feel that for those with bigger boobs, no matter how much you cover up, they (i.e the hormonally charged dudes) will still stare.

Lastly, if you feel uncomfortable, then it's too low because what's too low for one may not be too low for another.

While at work the other day a girl in her twenties came in with a bright pink lyrca plunging top. That was bad cleavage indeed. She must have been about a 40f or something. Why? What does it say about you other than something negative. You wouldn't see a man wearing a tiny pair of skin tight shorts while shopping so there's no excuse for women to do similar

I find for big-chested women like myself, it's a lose-lose situation.

Too high collared shirts will emphasise the breast, thereby getting looks there anyway.

Too low, and the cleavage is seen.

Personally, I don't like to show too much because my country is still a rather conservative place, and people stare. However, I don't like to wear normal t-shirt collars. It really emphasize that part and make my M size body L, if you get what I mean.

What I always reveal, and is that cleavage or not, is the start of the 'river'. 1 inch is as far as I would go.

Yet, to some here, that's already trashy.

Well, I am quite big chested, though maybe not as big as you..I have no idea. Anyway, I find v necks really good, they really open up your neckline and make you look slimmer. I find loose prints work well too. Normally, I wear slim jeans and stay loose on top. That's what works for me.

Men grow out of puberty?
I`m just starting to show cleavage,I`ve never been comfortable with doing that it draws too much attention on me and I`m shy(is there a cure for that?),and I`ve passed the decency line a couple of times but usually without knowing it.
