Shopping for large-breasted women?
December 16, 2013 12:35 PM Subscribe
You are an average-sized woman with a disproportionately large chest. You have great bras. You look fabulous in your tops, which magically do not pull, gape, make you look skanky or fit like a giant bag. How did you learn how to dress yourself in a way that flatters you, and where are you shopping for clothes that have a chance of fitting without tailoring?

I finally have a stock of great, well-fitting bras (in a 32G, I have been fitted and am sure I am wearing the right size), but I am having a really hard time finding tops that fit and flatter. I understand the joys of tailoring- I am 5' 2" with muscular thighs and a small waist, so I get pretty much all my pants hemmed and taken in at the waist- but really would strongly prefer to buy off-the-rack clothes that mostly fit for everyday wear at work (business casual, and on the very casual end of that) and home. Where can I shop for basics (tees, tops to wear with trousers and skirts etc.) that are cut more generously in the bust but aren't giant around the waist? How about one-piece swimsuits? Is this all just a pipe dream?
I live in the US and am not super-stoked about paying international shipping.
