FORMER Strictly Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse has sent social media into meltdown after sharing a game-changing fashion hack. 

The professional dancer turned Dancing on Ice judge revealed she was fed up with button up shirts gaping when she wore them due to her “bigger bust”.

So she learnt a nifty trick that meant she can still wear the ‘it’ style but in her own unique way.

And fellow big chested women have hailed her technique so clever and said they can’t wait to try it out for themselves with items in their own wardrobe. 

Oti, 32, posted a video on her Instagram account where she revealed women continually ask her where she gets shirts that fit her bigger boobs.

She explained: “Fashion hack 101: been getting loads of questions where I get my shirts from, especially for ladies with bigger busts.”

The South African born Strictly star continued: “Well, honestly, I love patterns but it’s HOW I WEAR THEM that makes the difference.”

Teasing her trick before showing how it’s done, Oti added: “Try this and let me know how it goes…”

Demonstrating her method using a blue patterned shirt from fashion brand Sosandar, Oti said that the key is putting the shirt on back to front.

So instead of putting your arms through the sleeves like a jacket, the VIP fashion fan flipped the shirt around and outstretched her arms so she could slide it on frontways.

Once one arm was fully in the sleeve, she twisted the shirt under itself, and then continued to put her other arm in.

This created a twisted, wrap around look with ruched material that can be perfected towards the end of the technique.

Oti then took the collar from either side in her hands, and used the material to tie it around the back of her neck, using the top button to secure it into place.

At this point, Oti also showed the back view, and how it hangs nicely, exposing her back slightly.

Her finishing touch was to gently arrange the material how she wanted it and tuck any of the shirt’s excess material into her white jeans.

This eventually creates a high-neck blouse that fits perfectly and is so flattering for the figure.

And it wasn’t long before fellow Instagram users rushed to the comment section to thank Oti for what they described as her genius hack.

One wrote: “I stopped wearing shirts as they always gape due to having a large bust.

“But this is a game changer – thank you for sharing.”
