With festive parties every other night of the week, ‘tis the season for plunging necklines and strapless gowns – which is all well and good if you’ve got the body of a Victoria’s Secret Angel, but is a bit of a nightmare for the rest of us mere mortals.

Read more tips prepared by BEAUTY SCENE magazine editors after the jump:
A mile of tit-tape and one sweaty battle with a supposedly stick-on bra later, and you’re resigning yourself to a cleavage-free night out.
But before you give up the chase for Kardashian-esque boobs for good, we’re sharing tips and tricks on enhancing your bust that’ll see you through this party season – and the rest of the year, too.
Take a look …
Change your exercise routine
It’s no secret that working out can do wonders for your mental and physical health, but changing up your exercise routine can work miracles with your cleavage, too.
Add some chest weight sessions, including push-ups and dumbbell flies, to your current gym routine for a busty boost – just make sure you also wear a supportive sports bra at the same time. A tip when attending the gym is to try some sporting supplements from supplements direct, it will give that extra push that you need. Also adding an ursolic acid supplement to your diet will help you maintain your muscle mass and protect your skin from photo-aging.
Talk to a professional
Cosmetic surgery definitely isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, but if you’ve been feeling unhappy about your boobs for a while then breast augmentation might be the answer to achieving the bust you want.
Lifts, reductions, or enlargements – there are plenty of options. Talk it through with a professional to figure out how it’ll work for you before making a commitment.
Contour your way to cleavage
Contouring isn’t only reserved for faking cheekbones or exaggerating your button nose – use it properly and it can also give you the air-brushed perfect cleavage of a model.
All you need is a decent brush, bronzer and highlighter – as well as a quick practise session before the big party – for a perkier looking bust.
Lift like Kim
Kim Kardashian nearly broke the internet back at the start of the year after revealing her secret for a speedy red-carpet boob lift – gaffer tape.
That’s right, she literally secures them in place with industrial-strength tape. And if it works for her it may just do it for you– although we dread to think about the pain involved when ripping it off at the end of the night!
Fake it with posture
Last but not least, it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing or how much cleavage it displays to the world – it’s really all about how you wear it.
Proper posture will go a long way in making you look and feel amazing, your bust included. So hold your head high, your back straight and walk into the room with confidence to rival Ashley Graham.
Because whilst exercises and makeup can give you a little boost, ultimately the biggest trick to rocking a killer cleavage and looking party ready is embracing a confident attitude.
