If it looks pretty much like you, it will work fine! If you want more bust definition, you can always put another bra on the outside of the form, and fill the cups with bags of uncooked rice for a natural shape. Thanks for uploading your pic!

Thanks Barbara, I think it should be ok as there isn't much definition when wearing clothes anyway!
