Q: I know that turtlenecks make your breasts look bigger. What other positive or negative effects can a turtleneck have? Who should avoid them? Would a buttoned blouse with the buttons buttoned up all the way to the top have the same effect as a turtleneck?
IF the blouse you have in mind for replacing your turtleneck is of the "Russian- or Mandarin-collared" variety (meaning that it has a high collar that is not turned down and has NO tabs or buttoned-down points) then you would get the same benefits as a turtleneck. In fact, in many cases, such tops can be even MORE appealing as they include button plackets that further enhance the vertical line focus.
