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?
