New Year Styled: Blouse Trouble


Welcome back to New Year Styled with my fashion sisters at The Blended Blog.  Thank you to everyone who linked up with us last week!  We keep growing and it's thanks to all of you.

Today I want to talk about boobs.  Again.  I've been a little obsessed lately, but I think it's because they're always in my way.  Sigh.

Specifically, I'm having a problem with my boobs and my blouses.  As I'm going through my closet, being intentional about what should stay and what should go, I've found that I have very few button up blouses that fit properly.  If I go with my normal size, there are gap issues across the chest.  But if I size up, then the blouse is too big everywhere else.  I often wonder how the ladies from Real Housewives do it, with their teeny tiny bodies and larger than life boobs. 

In the past, my solution has been to wear blouses under a sweater, or add a scarf to cover the offending area.  Exhibit A:


I love this cream blouse from Loft.  It hangs just right and goes with many outfits in my closet.  But if I were to remove the scarf, you'd see the buttons pulling open across my chest.  

What's a big boob-ed girl to do?  I'd love to hear suggestions from those who have the same problem.  Any brands you're fond of?  Do I just need to find a good seamstress?

  1. I have the same problem but no solution. Everything fits differently so I just keep trying things on until I find something that fits. This is such a pretty color combo! I love your scarf!

  2. So pretty Lana, Great colors and so spot on and but gotta say, how I wished I had this problem but I was not that blessed by the boob fairy, lol. I know I know, people with big boobs say they wished they were smaller but a girl can dream, lol.

  4. Mine aren't that big and I can still have this problem! I usually wear a cami underneath. But your scarf is a good solution too!

  6. Hi, I'm new to your blog. I'm big-boobed. I generally avoid shirts - besides, they tend to need ironing and I don't do that either. Life is fine without shirts, so don't fret too much!

    1. Welcome, and thank you so much for coming by! You're right - button up shirts are definitely not a necessity and I hate ironing anyway :)!

  7. Loving the red in your scarf - matches so well with your cardigan! Can't go wrong with a cream blouse - I wear mine all the time! :)

  8. I've been obsessed with my boobs for the last few months! They sort of grew without the rest of me growing and I have no idea why???
    But I used to be able to rock ANY shirt because of not being large up there. I can still do that for now.. but I can see how they get in the way.

    1. Haha - yep, they definitely get in the way!

  9. I have the same problem, Lana. I have big boobs and a small waist, then a big ole butt, I'm shaped like a coke bottle, and everyone compliments my figure, but I have a horrible time shopping. Most times I leave stores in tears because nothing fits. I usually wear a camisole under button ups and unbutton the button that's pulling, I don't love the look but its the best I can do :)

    1. Sounds like you and I both need to find a good tailor :)! But it's such a pain. I do the cami trick too, and it does work.

  11. Hi Lana, thanks for visiting my blog. I don't think this is just a big boob issue. It's sizes of fronts generally being smaller than shoulders on many blouses. I just pin between the buttons and I'm a B size!

    1. That's true Anna. I've tried pinning in the past, maybe I need to do that again!

  12. I'm lucky/unlucky?? I don't have that problem with gaping blouses! You fab anyway - and your scarf would be perfect for my outfit today! That's the colour I need! Jacqui

  14. Unfortunately I can't help you much! I have heard of people using double stick tape or getting a size bigger and taking them in. Good luck in your mission to find some good blouses!
