Buttons or Bust

TGIF all!

I’ve never really considered myself to be “busty” or having a large chest.  When I was younger I seesawed between a D and DD cup which was fine with me at the time.  During those years, buttons loved me and I had no complaints.  Unfortunately as the years have progressed so has my weight which means my bust size has increased. Now buttons don’t love me as much and I find myself avoiding them due to pulling around the bust line.  Although my breasts are staging a button boycott,  I still love cute button up tops.  So when I saw this H&M + chambray ruffled blouse I instantly fell in love and immediately ordered it. Honestly, I should’ve know better because H&M  plus sizing is on the SMALL end of the spectrum. To get an item to fit properly you have to go up at least 2-3 sizes.  I should’ve abandoned my quest there but I couldn’t help myself.  I got the blouse earlier this week and guess what…it gaps at the bust (whomp, whomp!).  Despite this I refused to get down on my boobs. I’m not the first nor am I the last busty gal to struggle with proper fitting button up shirts.  Now I know H&M+ button up shirts aren’t going to work for me.   Since I’ve already worn the shirt, returning it isn’t an option.  Besides I love how it looks on me so I’m going to get it tailored so it can fit properly. So after I did some creative pulling and tucking to get my blog pics, I took it off and wore another blouse to work.  As they say, c’est la vie!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Too bad the blouse pulls because otherwise it looks super cute on you! Maybe you can find something similar elsewhere…Thanks for your blog – I always enjoy reading it.

    Amazingly cute!!! Have you tried double sided tape on your button down shirts. It works for me most of the time 🙂 Especially on the gaps that aren’t that large.

      No I never tried it before! Thank you so much for the suggestion!!!

    I’ve also done the double-sided tape but it’s not that strong so really it has to be just a slight gap. I can only wear button-downs when the fabric is stretchy since I am definitely a busty gal. The top does look really cute besides that!

    This happens to me too. I have to buy much bigger shirts if they have buttons. It’s lovely on you though.
