Apart from Bravissimo, can you recommend another store
that does clothes for girls with excess boobage?
Ah yes… the famous rack of doom. Nothing makes a body difficult to dress like a profusion of mammaries.
Search for “Big Boobs” on Google, and after wading through the inevitable porn, a lot of unhelpful advice pops up, most of which suggests wearing loose-fitting tops, jackets and scarves in an attempt to downplay your big knockers. Which is fine if you’re after the streamlined look sported by Mr Chatterbox. Personally, I’d rather emulate Jessica Rabbit.
Well, here’s an interesting factoid for you, Adele: 40% of Australian Women wear a DD cup or higher
Unfortunately, most clothing companies are still working on old dress patterns from as far back as the 50’s when the average cup size was closer to a B.
So – back to your question – are there other companies out there who are catering for the generously endowed. Fortunately, yes!
First up, we have AJ Rumina who do a range of clothes called “Bustin’ Out” where you can buy by waist and cup size! I particularly like this classic sundress which is also available in a pretty pink print.
Secondly, we have Bratique Helene where shoppers can chose between “Well endowed” and “Really endowed”. No word on whether or not they ship to Australia, but they do take paypal.
My pick at Bratique Helene is this tailored white shirt – the hook and eye fastening is a godsend against gaping buttons, and the combination of princess and underbust seams looks like you’d get a truly fitted shirt that will show off your assets to their best advantage.
My favourite is this hot pink silk dress – loving it. Check out the Shirt Dress too. Oh, and the Nautical Stripe Jersey Dress. Plus I think I need to indulge in a nightdress at some point.
