I must know your secret to how you make yourself look so busty in photo's.  Push-up bra's don't seem to be a huge difference, on me at least.

why try to be something you're not when you can embrace who you are and love it?

When I was an a-b cup I used inserts to put in my bra and they made a huge difference?

Psht.  Bewbs.  It's alllll about the boo-tay. big_smile

EDIT: I make my itty bitty boobies look bigger by knowing how the light likes them. wink  Angle so that you get shadow on one side and underneath if possible.  Also: use makeup!  Contour underneath!  It will appear like a shadow in the photos.

EDIT AGAIN: Oops - didn't notice you don't shoot nudes.  My suggestion then is those silicone chicken cutlet inserts!  I love them - just pop them into your bra and move them around until they look natural.

I have worked with all cup sizes. Sure a D will make some guys lean over their desks but, hey, there are so many to go around. We all have to work with what we got and make the best use of it.

Lol don't get me wrong I love my boobs ( definitely fits my body )  but I like many of other woman sometimes do like the feminine curves, just looking around MM I see how a model can look my size in one photo and could switch to another one and their boobs like decently big.  I was just curious to how they did it.

I once complained to my mom that push-up bras don't work for me.

Being blunt and dry-humored as she is, she said: "Well, you need something for it to push. It's just pushing air right now."

During the first month I started modeling, I have used these silicone boob inserts sold at Walmart, Target, etc. (found in the lingerie section) and they did make a huge difference when paired with the right bra. I don't have a use for them anymore since most wardrobes I shoot in new-a-days requires I don't wear a bra. But if i need those inserts, they're nice to have around.

I guess now they make padded panties too for your booty.

but on the other hand, photoshop can make anything look bigger or smaller wink

I've always found that it wasn't how much padding is in the bra, it's where it's located.
Try on a few different styles, everyone's boobs are proportioned differently.

I've never tried the inserts but lots of people say they are great!

I used to feel bad about my IBT's but ... there really isn't a need. I'm not looking into the MAXIM-styled photo shoots, artistic nudes look just fine with little chests, I don't do a lot of lingerie/swimwear ... so why worry about my breast size?

OP, you could always try cutlets/inserts.

its more about the lighting than the pose. I generally don't go out of my way to appear busty but am pleasantly surprised when certain lighting set ups make me look like a full B cup smile

make a distinguishment between fashion (cup a or aa) or other forms...

furthermore...pose, body tape, "chicken-filets" ....and makeup...a highlighter and shadower on the right places does wonders

... and in a pinch, a strip of medical tape o pull them slightly towards themselves from the underside in a tanktop or similar covered shirt works well.

I know, Old School and outdated, but hey, it worked for years.

I have no desire to make myself look busty.

That would be an inaccurate depiction of my own body.

I have very small boobs; they are probably one of my best features. Why alter the appearance of that?

Small boobies are a win!

Well, I like mine. Having said that, they are big for my size. I'm a D. They don't look like a D, but I get cleavage in an ordinary bra...

But it's because I am so small under my bust. 30D is my bra size. xD

I understand the OPs concern, sometimes a garment just doesn't fit a A as well.  Granted sometimes a garment doesn't fit a D well, so as a model you need to learn the tricks to make the garment you are selling look great.

I know several that use the inserts and/or a push up bra.  They also try and tighten the waist (cloths-pins in the back) to extenuate their shape.

Case in point, this one fits your shape very well and looks great on you.

Way to alienate yourself from a large percentage of models.

I'm happy to shoot all those "bimbos" with big fake breasts.

'A' cups are the breast...errr... best. If you really want a push up, my gf uses the Miracle Bra from Victoria's Secret and it adds more than a cup size to your appearance.
I, being somewhat old, prefer smaller breasts, because at my age larger breasts become longer breasts.

For fashion, commercial, or art nudes; large breasts (or the appearance of large breasts) isn't essential, or even necessarily an asset.  For Glamour, it's usually good.

Well, those are the result of the mighty Photoshop ... smile
The trick is to use it in a modest amount that it will enhance the image, not ruin it ... smile

Yours are just as wonderful as other B, C, D or DD or whatever ... smile

I usually use silicone cutlets in my bra. And even then, since its not like that will help me go from an A to a D, I do poses that tend to emphasize my booty instead, because I like it better smile

I've stopped trying, for the most part.  Pushup bras typically do nothing but accentuate the fact that my left boob is nearly a full cup size bigger than my right, and cutlets are always too heavy and end up making my boobs look longer (for lack of a better word) than bigger.

Lighting and makeup (contouring) can play a decent part in making boobies look bigger, as can posing.  Practice the posing at home, and play with contouring when you have a MUA on set.  Working with lighting will come when you're with a photographer, and is when your posing practice will come into play.

FWIW, my boobs only touch when I cross my arms and push them together.  Pushing them together without crossing my arms can kinda get them to touch, but it creates an unattractive set of lines instead of pretty-looking cleavage.
