When I changed my name after I got married, my initials became SAG. I figured that was prophetic.
As law school is drawing neigh, more and more occassions are arising that require professional attire. At a 36DDDD, this prospect is somewhat daunting. It is incredibly hard to find nice, non-frumpy professional clothing that actually fits well. Any of you in a similar situation know what I mean... fits the chest but is incredibly loose everywhere else, isn't long enough to fit the torso properly after covering the top half, or, my favorite enemy, the button down blouse opening. I've currently been shopping at Jessica London (http://www.jessicalondon.com/), but I find that I have to buy about 2 sizes larger than the rest of my body. Although I am happy to have professional attire at least available, I really wish that I could find something a little closer to fitting, or, at the least, find a larger selection than just one store. So, where do you shop? Any help is very appreciated!
Try wearing petite sized button down shirts. Petite button downs are made so the buttons are closer together. You don't need to be a size 0 to be considered a petite. This will give you the tailored fit you need without the gap opening at the button closure on your breasts. If you're weaing any kind of v-neck or scoop neck top, pair it with a camisole. You want to come off as classy, not busty. You can wear the same styles as the smaller-chested women, but in order to look flattering, you may need to go up one size and tailor it around your shape with a professional seamstress. Also, invest in a minimizer bra. You may also want to get sized to make sure you are wearing the correct size bra. Many woman "think" they are one size when really they are wearing the wrong size bra. I know nothing about your weight, but you may also want to try exercise to shrink the girls down a little if you are overweight. It will improve the "load" and you'll feel better and be healthier... and you can celebrate with pretty new clothes!I feel your pain. I'm small-framed with a large chest, and it has taken me a lot of trial and error to find styles that work. I've found Ann Taylor's petites to be a God-send.Also, if your true bra size is a "36DDDD" there is so way they sit "high and perky" unless they're implants.... JSIA.
Just realized that I just gave advice to someone who posted this over a year ago. Thanks a lot Blue Angel...ha ha.
